This is how the Concentration Mode of iOS 15 works

It is one of the main novelties of iOS 15 that will help you not to be disturbed by unnecessary notifications at different times of the day. Sleep, work, sports … receive only what interests you when you care, and here we show you how.

Do Not Disturb has been in iOS for several years now, as many as I’ve been using it to avoid notifications and calls at inopportune times, like when I’m sleeping. During all this time I have missed some customization options that Appel seemed reluctant to add, However, with iOS 15, no new options have arrived, but a complete rethinking of this functionality that we can now customize much more than we would have ever thought. In fact, we can not only customize the Do Not Disturb mode, we can create other modes with completely different settings for when we are at work, doing sports, reading or in the situation that we want to configure.

What’s the point of using Do Not Disturb mode or any of its other varieties? Well, while it is active, we will not receive notifications or calls. Receiving an email at 4 in the morning and being woken up by the sound of the notification is not recommended. The same goes for the latest Reel uploaded by your flatmate on Instagram. However, if your mother calls you at 5 in the morning, you may want your phone to wake you up. Here comes the importance of using these modes instead of turning off your phone or putting it in Airplane Mode, one of the options that many people use. If I turn off my mobile, no one has the possibility to contact me, and I do have people that I want to be able to do it at any time, even if I’m sleeping.

If you go to work, then maybe you open your hand a little more, and not only allow your mother to bother you, maybe you already allow calls from your children’s school, or from your brother. You may not want notifications from Instagram, but you do want from Mail or Slack. And when you study, it is better to deactivate all the notifications of all the apps but you want your partner’s messages to warn you. With the Modes of Concentration all of this is possible, and you can set different modes with completely different settings if you wish. You can even make certain pages on your main screen disappear to avoid distractions.

And how do I activate all these modalities? Well, you can do it easily from the Control Center or through Siri, or you can set schedules if your routines are quite established. Even you can set automations so that when you get to a place a specific mode is activated: Work Mode when you get to your workplace, Exercise Mode when you get to the gym. And when you drop them, they automatically turn off.

All these options and many more can be configured in these Concentration Modes, as we show you in the video, in which we explain all the configuration steps, the different options available and how to activate and modify them on the fly. If you have not tried it yet, I advise you to give it a try because it will surely convince you.
