Focus mode is Apple’s way of helping users get the task at hand done filtering out the noise. It’s available in iOS and for iPads and Macs and can be a real productivity boost — if you know how to set it up right.

This is how it works.

Finding Focus

Since iOS 15, Focus has appeared as an option in Control Center, or via Settings>Focus.

In iOS 16, due out this fall, it can recommend relevant Lock Screens for the Focus options you provide, such as a data-rich Lock Screen for work.

Apple has four suggested focus types:

  • Do Not Disturb
  • Sleep
  • Personal
  • Work

You can also create new Focus groups, including those for Driving, Fitness, Gaming, Mindfulness, Reading, and Custom.
