The iPhone Hack for Moms Who Worry About Their Kids
Moms worry about their kids. It's just part of our DNA. If you're a Mom, there's an iPhone hack that might save (a little bit) of your sanity.
As soon as my kids got a little older and started driving, they would get in later than I went to bed. If you're like me, you want to turn your phone to silent when you go to bed, so you're not woken up by a robocall in the middle of the night, or a ping from that group text you're in with your friends. BUT you need to know you'll hear a call from your kids, so you leave it on...and stay awake listening to every ping, ring, and buzz.
Did you know there's a setting on your iPhone that allows your kids' calls to ring through even if your phone is on silent? Yeah, me neither.
Here's what you do:
- Go to your kid's contact in your phone.
- Click on "edit"
- Go to "Ring Tone" and "Text Tone" and click "Emergency Bypass."
Now, whether your phone is silent so you can sleep or you're in a meeting - you'll always get that text or phone call from your kids. This is especially helpful for all of us with kids in college - so they can always reach us if they need us.
