Described as a "new way to help drivers stay more focused on the road," the Do Not Disturb While Driving feature uses the iPhone's various sensors to detect when its owner might be driving. When this occurs, the phone automatically silences notifications so the screen stays dark.

It's coming in the next version of iOS (11).

That's what I was thinking, and if you can over ride it as a passenger, then what's the point?

Well I've got this on IOS11 now. Anyone used it yet?

Basically this is how it works:


Apple has released its latest iOS 11 operating system, bringing with it a useful tool for drivers: a ‘Do Not Disturb While Driving' mode. This blocks phone notifications while you're at the wheel, with the aim of reducing crashes caused by people using their phone while driving.


If you've just installed iOS 11, your phone will detect the first time it thinks you're driving and, once you've arrived at your destination, show a description of the Do Not Disturb While Driving feature.


If you tap a button to enable the feature, it'll turn on automatically when connected to your car's Bluetooth, or when it senses driving motion. Alternatively, you can select to turn on the feature manually.
