Something that may be seen as a disadvantage is that there is only one schedule allowed per device. The majority of users will opt for a night time schedule but it may be a limitation for those who have regular meetings and want extra schedules, similar to alarm clocks and alerts from the calendar. However, users do benefit from the manually setting and keep one schedule for the night.

Apple Do Not Disturb Glitch Now Fixed

The Do Not Disturb is one of the new features of iOS 6, with two ways to set the function – by a single schedule for each device and manually for unexpected or less frequent needs. The glitch that affected the Do Not Disturb scheduling setting has now been rectified and it seems like it really was linked to a problem with the software recognizing the dates. Users can once again sleep without being disturbed from late night phone calls and text messages.
