How to Link Focus to Lock Screen


Focus helps you concentrate on a task by minimizing notifications, or distractions. You can set up a Focus to temporarily silence all notifications, or allow only specific notifications (ones that apply to your task, for example). By linking a Focus to your Lock Screen, you have access to the features of the Focus when you use that Lock Screen.

Touch and hold the Lock Screen until the Customize button appears at the bottom of the screen. Tap Focus near the bottom of the wallpaper to see the Focus options—for example, Do Not Disturb, Personal, Sleep, and Work. Select a Focus, then tap the Close button.


Important Notes


It is still possible to customize your lock screen in iOS from the Settings app. To access lock screen settings, tap to launch the Settings from your Springboard and choose Wallpaper from the main menu. You'll be shown a representation of your iPhone lock screen and iPhone home page. Tap Customize under the lock screen interface to create your custom lock screen.
