Do Not Disturb is a handy feature on iOS devices that silences all notifications, including calls, texts and emails. It is perfect for use while at the movies, out to dinner or in bed for the night. A problem that can arise though, is forgetting to turn it off and subsequently missing important calls, texts, etc. The solution is scheduling times for it to turn on and off. This can be done by going to Settings -> Do Not Disturb and toggling on Scheduled. From there you can set the From and To times for Do Not Disturb to be engaged. Not to worry if you have an alarm set on your iPad, this won't override it.
