How to Use Apple's New Focus Tool

This feature lets you customize the notifications you get

Sometimes, it is hard to focus. When you have a dizzying number of screens pinging around you, they can be more distracting than helpful. But if some of those screens run one of the new versions of Apple's operating systems—iOS 15, iPadOS 15WatchOS 8 and MacOS Monterey—there's a tool to make things easier.

It's called Focus, and it lets you create distinct profiles to not only control what notifications are allowed to interrupt you (if any at all) but also rearrange the home screen to suit what you need at the moment. Need all your work apps front and center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and only messages from colleagues? Customize and enable the Work Focus! What about zero disturbances when you sleep? Go for the Sleep Focus.

Here, we'll walk you through the steps of how to make a custom Focus.
