Do not disturb mode in iOS is now part of the new “Focus Mode”, with which you can create different focus profiles, block notifications from certain apps and pause certain functions. For example, the Work focus mode eliminates the distractions from social media, YouTube, and news, but does not affect email, Slack, or other productivity apps. Your contacts will also see a visual notification in certain apps that you are in focus or do not disturb mode.

Focus mode has work, sleep, and home presets, but you can create your own. Of course, if you want to block all notifications, do not disturb mode is also available.
