There is a Do Not Disturb feature on your iPhone. What this does is stop notifications, alerts and calls from making any noise, vibration or lighting up the phone screen when the screen is locked.

However, there might be some important people in your life that you'd like to be able to bypass this system. Now there is a way.

All you need to do is turn the Emergency Bypass option on for any of your contacts. It's really simple.

Just go to Contacts and select someone. Click Edit and you can set their ringtone and text tone to Emergency Bypass On.

Close Safari tabs

If you use Apple's web browser, Safari, you know how easy it is to lose track of how many tabs you have open at one time. It can be time-consuming closing each of those tabs individually. Apple has made this process much easier with iOS 10.

You are now able to close every open tab at once. Open Safari and from the new tab page, hold down the Done button in the bottom-right corner. This will open a menu with the option to close all open tabs. Select Close Tabs and they will all disappear.
