iPhone question: silencing all media except one app?
February 28, 2014 10:55 AM   Subscribe

I like to listen to my white noise app on my iPhone while I work, but the alerts from email, texts, etc. disrupt my zen zone. Is there a way to silence my phone, text alert, and email alerts (basically everything except this app) without having to go to Settings and set each one's ringtone to "None?" Thanks!

Put your finger at the bottom of the screen. Slide it up. Tap the moon.

Put the phone in airplane mode.

Like phunniemee says, the Do Not Disturb setting will do this. Just make sure to go into Settings > Do Not Disturb and choose "Always" as the silence setting, to ensure you get no alerts even when the phone is unlocked.
