Way 2. Disable Do Not Disturb

Some of us might turn on "Do Not Disturb" at night to prevent interruptions. Do Not Disturb silences calls, alerts, and notifications. If Do Not Disturb is enabled, you'll see a small moon icon at the left of the battery icon.

If you see the small moon icon, swipe up from the bottom of your phone to reveal Command Center. Tap the moon icon to turn Do Not Disturb off.

However, if you don't want to be disturbed all the time when Do Not Disturb is ON, you can set a schedule. Tap Settings > Do Not Disturb and turn on Scheduled. Then set a time.
