I’m not sure why I didn’t do this earlier, but I’ve turned on the Do Not Disturb switch on both my iPad and my iPhone. I think many of us grow used to (dare I say addicted?) alerts and notifications.
Given that most of the day I’m working on my laptop, getting notifications from every device on my desk is too much. It’s not enough to just turn the ringer/sound switch off.
My guess is I’m going to quickly get used to this change.
