This is a great feature but the location of it in settings is completely illogical.

I should be able to switch if on by tapping the switch next to "Do Not Disturb", where it currently is now.

BUT

I should be able to enter the settings by tapping the white cell containing the "Do Not Disturb" text.

I shouldn't have to go to
Settings > Notifications > Do Not Disturb when there is a button sitting at Settings > Do Not Disturb

I'm sorry, but if you're having a dream with Serena and Venus Williams in it and all you're doing is playing ping pong, something is wrong with you.

Did I miss something? Apple made an ad about a feature that has been present on smartphones and cell phones for decades? Did they patent this, too?

Hmm maybe it's a timezone thing. Mine switched off right on schedule... It was still on at 6am, I had an alarm set for 8.30am and it had switched off by then - scheduled to switch off at 8am.
Here in the UK (holiday or not... Still had to work!)

At this rate, the next commercial will be about the mute switch starring Brad Pitt, with Jeff Daniels saying something cute.

Have to laugh at the face palms, but I doubt this ad is aimed at the geeks on here that are giving all the raspberries. This is for the rest of us. This is an awesome feature since I use my iPhone for business, I can set schedule outside of business hours when only certain people can bug me.

There weren't any people in this commercial. It was a dream. Therefore: Not real people.

don't know about you, but until iOS6 there was no way of being only alerted after hours by only those on my favorites list. In the past all I could do was switch off everything and that meant I missed urgent calls by people I did want to be able to reach me.

It all depends on one's preferences. Given how little it's been talked about since its inception, it's rather trivial. I work within a huge group of iOS enthusiasts & do not disturb has rarely been acknowledged.

This ad didn't work for me. Too much distraction and negativity.

Did anyone notice that apple used "10:41 PM" instead of their usual "9:41 AM" (for the first time?)?

Of course the narrator will set his iPhone before going to bed in the late evening - hence the late time of day - but I haven't seen another time displayed in apple's promotional images/videos for a long time.

Ping pong vs. one of the greatest doubles pairs in history (and each among the best singles players) is kind of exciting if you are a tennis fan. While I wouldn't rate this ad as the most clever in Apple history I thought it was decent. Most people don't know about these kinds of features.

Maybe the ad was released with Apple's full awareness of the bug. Apple gets a bunch of people using the feature they weren't aware of, then in a few days they release an update touting improvements to DND including "a bug fix for some users."

Or maybe I just need to adjust my tinfoil hat

The fact that they made the 2013 bug just for the ad is pure genius, fantastic marketing!

But really, I love the ad, for the first time in many iPhone ads, they did something funny.

S*** happens.

Recently got an online survey provided by my air carrier where I should comment my customer satisfaction dealing with a specific flight. But they somehow messed up that the flight was cancelled and we had to change planes....
