Do Not Disturb Focus Filters
You can also apply some filters to your iPhone’s Do Not Disturb focus. To do this, head back to the Do Not Disturb main menu then tap the option to Add Filter under Focus Filters.
On the Focus Filters screen, you can apply app filters to customize apps while on Do Not Disturb mode or use system filters to customize system settings including the system interface appearance and low power mode.

Do Not Disturb notifications can also be reconfigured accordingly. You can silence or allow notifications from certain apps and incoming phone calls from selected contacts.
You may also opt to Allow Repeated Calls whenever a second call is made from the same person within three minutes. To do this, just turn on the switch next to Allow Repeated Calls under the Do Not Disturb Notifications menu.
Setting exceptions to allow calls from your favorite contacts is also possible. Just navigate to the Phone Calls section then tap Allow Calls From. On the pop-up window, choose which contacts to allow.
Other Notification Options that you can use for Do Not Disturb Focus include Show On Lock Screen to show silenced notifications on the lock screen instead of in Notification Center, Dim Lock Screen to darken the lock screen when DND Focus is on, and Hide Notification Badges to hide notification badges of silenced apps on your Home screen.
