    Is this a bug that hasn't been fixed yet? It happened with iPhone 7 Plus using the last iOS 12

    How do I fix this? It's disabled, but at 6 PM keeps turning ON

    You have it completely disabled, including scheduled section as well as Bedtime section? Do you have any other devices connected?

    I’m having the same problem since I updated to iOS 12. I haven’t changed any of the settings, it’s set to go on at 10pm and off at 6am. Now it just randomly comes on throughout the day. I’ve missed calls and texts, not realizing the DND ghost turned it on. I hope it’s just a bug and Apple will push out a fix.

    As far as I know everything was disabled. I think the only way to fix this bug is to configure a specific period for DND such as 3:00 to 3:02 AM, then it will be enabled but not bother you when you don't expect. And since it will be ON in a moment you will not use the phone (and for just 2 minutes) it will render the feature useless.

    I believe you can schedule it to be on and off at the same time and that will basically turn it off at that time if it was on for some reason.

    I am having the same issue with my iPhone 7 plus. For me, there is nothing to indicate that DND is actually switched on (no icon), but the behavior is most def DND behavior and I can't disengage it.

    all - was having same problem. New phone w ios12. For whatever reason, dnd was set to ‘on’ in the alarm app when I had the ‘bedtime alarm’ on, which I use every night. Turned dnd toggle to off in the alarm app, fixed the issue.

    That was something that was brought up and it seems like it's not involved in this case based on the response: https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...tself-on-iphone-7-plus.2141361/#post-26551412

    Apple asked me the following in the bug report...

    ******
    Do you use a bedtime alarm? Do you have Do not Disturb while driving on? What is its setting?

    Please provide your response or results by updating your bug report. If uploading files, please compress first.
    ******

    I'll look into it...

    I have this same problem. Despite having a schedule for 11pm to 6am, DND is on outside of those hours. Like right now it is 6:37pm and it is on when it shouldn't be. Bedtime is off in Settings->DND, and "DND During Bedtime" is off in Clock/Bedtime app.

    OK, here's what I found out:

    Do not Disturb while driving on = enable manually (in other words = disabled). All the rest from what I saw it's off.

    Bedtime alarm is on (I guess that's what it is).

    Waiting now for another reply from this bug report.

    My bug report was closed:

    Apparently they are working on it, and it was closed because someone already complained about this.

    I hope this is fixed in a future version...

    Apparently, in the Clock app, on the Bedtime tab, in Options there's an option "Do Not Disturb During Bedtime." (https://tidbits.com/2018/09/19/inside-ios-12-do-not-disturb-learns-to-turn-itself-off/) This setting isn't reflected in the DND settings for some reason. It's probably your culprit.

    I think I have fixed this problem with my iPhone I went to Clock. Bedtime. Options. Turned off the dnd at bedtime. It seems to have fixed the really random dnd that was happening throughout the day. 730551DB-691C-4FFD-AC29-FC5B61352E56.png E52F9B3D-FA30-4F0D-BCC5-B1187DB46223.png
