    How do I enable 'do not disturb' only for incoming phone calls except for my contacts? iOS treats notifications and phone calls as the same thing so I cannot stop incoming calls from everyone without also stopping notifications and messages too.

    Is there a way to make these favorites? Do favorite contacts override DND?

    Hi Craig! I understand the need to be left alone and free from calls and texts from time to time. Here is a link to an article on iMore that explains how to do this step by step.

    From the article above:

    From here, you can select from the following options:
    *Everyone: Allows calls from everyone on your contacts list.
    *No One: Allows calls from no one.
    *Favorites: Allows calls from contacts in your Favorites list.
    *Groups: A specific group of contacts.

    So you can either (a) make a specific group and add those people in that group. or (b) just favorite the contacts you want to be able to reach you with DND enabled. That's the way I have mine set up. Only my wife, son and father-in-law are favorited so when DND is on, they are the only ones who I get notifications from.

    I also have mine set up like this

    Along with a scheduled over night DND as well as a handy DND till I Leave Shortcut for when I’m somewhere I don’t want to be bothered works well for me
