Confused re do not disturb

iOS and iPadOS

Hi All,

So, since iOS15 and the new focus mode options something very odd is going on re do not disturb. in iOS14 I had set Do not disturb to be silent from 23:00 to 07:00 whereby no notifications were sent to my locked screen. in iOS15 by default I have found that it was turned off and I had to turn it back on. However, the schedule was retained. The issue is that if DND is turned on I now get no notifications at all during the day. I've checked every setting in the focus settings options and cannot work out why. Is this an iOS15 bug or is there a way of using DND with a schedule that still allows notifications outside of the set schedule. Utterly confused. I can't believe I am the only one with this issue so there must be a way of resolving this. Just I have no idea. Help appreciated.

You can set do not disturb to let in notifications if you want. That's about the only difference between the old do not disturb and focus.
