  1. The first thing that all of you need to make sure of is whether you’ve updated your iOS device with the latest update i.e. iOS 15. If not then update it now as without this you won’t be having Focus Mode.
  2. Once updated, you need to open the setting of your iOS device, be it your iPhone or an iPad.
  3. In the settings, you will see the “Focus” option, click on that to move further.
  4. Now as you’ve opened the Focus option, you will see that there is a “+” button and the top right corner of the screen. This means that from here you will be able to create your Focus Mode.
  5. As you clicked on the + button, you will now see various option on your screen through which you will be able to create your focus mode. In case you wish to create a unique one for yourself, you can tap on “Custom” and then it will ask you to name your focus.
  6. Once you’ve chosen Custom, it will show you different option on which you can focus and you can choose any one of them.
  7. After selecting your Focus, you need to click on “Next” in order to move further.
  8. This is one of the most important step as here it will have to choose the people from whom you would like to receive notifications from. You can do this by clicking on “Add Contact” and from there you can add all those contacts which you wish to add on this list. In case you do not want to receive notifications from anyone them you can choose “Allow None”.
  9. After this it will ask you the apps from which you would like to receive notifications. You can choose any apps that you want.
