How to Activate or Enable Do Not Disturb for Specific Contacts on iPhone

In this technology driven world, privacy has become a difficult thing to get and one thing which is annoying is getting calls at the wrong time, such as when you are waiting for an important call or are in a meeting. We can always put our phone in Silent or Do Not Disturb mode, but there is a chance that we might miss an important call or notification so there is an option to selectively turn on Do Not Disturb for certain contacts on your iPhone.

How to activate Do Not Disturb for specific Contact in iPhone and iPad

We will be explaining here how you can activate Do Not Disturb for specific contacts on iPhone. It is particularly important when you do not want to get notifications from only a single or a couple of contacts but receive notifications from all the other contacts.
