    I have a confession...

    The 6+ is my first iPhone. I've had mbp, ipods, etc. but I finally got rid of my dumb phone for a smart phone with the release of the 6+.

    So, I'm not sure if this is a bug or how it is suppose to work, but I've noticed when I turn on DND, I don't get notifications while in other apps. Specifically, text messages.

    Is that normal use? When you turn on DND you do not get a notification at the top of the screen (i.e. when someone sends you a text message) while using other apps?

    To be honest I've not used my phone much when in DND for obvious reasons but I'd imagine that's meant to be the case. It is suppose to silence all notifications when it's turned on.

    Please check the the silence option:).

    I assumed that was just a noise silence...

    It blocks the notification too?

    It applies to banners/alerts as well (I guess the idea is that you could use it when you are watching a video on your device and don't want banners/alerts appearing during that time).
