    FYI, the feature works with Apple Maps on, but NOT with Waze.

      Even before ios 11, Waze already had the ability to detect movement in a car and disable the screen, with the option for the users to reenable it if they’re actually passengers and not driving.

    “Modern” version of iOS?! So 10 is totally obsolete, done, gone, forgotten?

    How about just say that the feature was introduced with iOS 11?

      Correct, in terms of Do Not Disturb While Driving, the feature requires an iPhone and iOS 11 or later and is not supported on older iOS versions. This is mentioned specifically in the article, directly above the steps to enable or adjust the settings: “You will need an iPhone and a modern version of iOS (11.0 or newer) to have this feature available to you”

        yeah but why call it a modern version? to many users ios 10, or even 9, still feels modern.

    I turned this off permanently. While on, it also doesn’t allow Google maps to run, much less give me directions. It needs to be more selective, including, at a minimum, the option to turn off just outside calls, texts, emails, possibly auto notifications like Calendar reminders. This is actually what I thought it was, so I’m disappointed in what could be a very positive feature.

      Even if it turns on automatically, do not disturb while driving only does so based on moving speed. Therefore it still offers the option to turn it back off by indicating that the user is a actually just a passenger, not driving.

      So did I. My car has no BT stereo, and if I choose to have it turn on automatically, it will turn on as soon as it detects that I am in a moving car, even if I am just a passenger.

    Yes…some very good reasons…particularly the map not working. Also It should have and option for text and email but not hands free tele. I talk with in car hands free phone setup quite well – but don’t want to deal with texting or other distracting features – this appears to not be an option. They need more customizable features to make this successful..

    I had this like 4 years ago on Android, but really an up to date car with Android Auto or Apple Carplay would solve this too. Which would include maps. A step in the right direction for safer drivers, but still a setback. This needs to include some way to get your messages, not completely cutting you off, or else that would double the effort, and make the feature more dangerous for driving instead of less.

    Uhhh, that’s the reason for DND, NO distraction while driving.
