Hi,

Is it possible to enable Do Not Disturb except for one specific app for which I want to receive the notifications?

Or is there another app on the store that can handle this?

Thanks.

No app In App Store can handle DND, and you cannot allow one app notification to go through while all other apps are muted, even in iOS 13.
Instead, I suggest you to take down notifications of any app you don’t use that much or bombards you with notification.

Argh... that's what I feared. But I think it would be really useful. I must wake up during my night upon reception of a certain notification coming from a professional app. But all those people texting and stuff at 1am or later...

Deactivating notifications supposes that I reactivate them each morning. Not too friendly...


Thanks for replying though.

People are calling for better DND for a while now. But as Apple, expect them to take years to add this feature if they ever think it is a good one to implement. 12 years for dark mode and volume hud, you get the idea.
