How to Use Focus Mode (Apple Products)

With iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, Focus lets you stay in the moment when you need to concentrate or step away from your device. You can customize Focus settings and choose when you want to receive alerts and notifications, while letting other people and apps know when you’re busy.

Turn on Focus

  1. Go to Settings > Focus.
  2. Tap a provided Focus option — like Do Not Disturb, Personal, or Sleep — then turn on the Focus.
  3. After you choose a Focus, select options like Allowed Notifications, Time Sensitive Notifications, and Focus Status.

When you set a Focus, the icon appears in the status bar and on your Lock Screen, and your status is automatically displayed in the Messages app. When people try to send you a message, they’ll see that you’ve silenced notifications, but they can still notify you if it’s urgent. When you use Focus on one device, the setting is automatically applied across your Apple devices that are signed in with the same Apple ID.

10 Instagram Bio Ideas + 13 Tricks to Stand Out

1. Funny Instagram bios

Unfortunately, there’s nothing less funny than trying to be funny. The key to a comedic Instagram bio is keeping honest, like this one from a drink brand.

2. Instagram bio quotes

Using Instagram bio quotes can be a great way to express an idea or create a feeling of connection.

3. Creative Instagram bios

A bio may only be 150 characters, but that’s more than enough to stretch that creative muscle.

4. Cool Instagram bios

“All your friends are so cool, you go out every night”— Olivia Rodrigo. Who is pretty cool herself: this short, informative and rhyming bio says it all.

5. Short Instagram bios

Speaking of short—if you don’t need 150 characters, don’t use them. Dating app Bumble’s bio simply prompts folks to make the first move.

How to Use Instagram Live

Going live on Instagram is simple. To start, you need to have an Instagram account (surprise!), and a phone since many of Instagram’s features are only available on mobile. Then jump into the first step:

Step 1: Tap the plus icon on the top right

From your profile or feed, tap the plus icon on the top right. This will prompt you to choose what type of content you want to create.

Step 2: Tap Go Live

Once you tap Live on the list above, Instagram automatically pulls up the Live option you can see in the screenshot below.

Tap on the recording icon. Instagram will briefly check your phone’s internet connection before starting your broadcast.


Voila! That’s how to go live on Instagram in two steps. See, we told you it was simple.
