    This is truly an annoying problem, it doesn't only happen with notifications it also happens with alarms and remainders going off in your ear during a call!! Please fix this it is truly a bug!

     

    When your on a call the only thing that should be going off in your ear is the other person's voice at the other end! Vibration I could live with, but sound alarms!! Come on Apple!

    The lack of this function only makes sense it you have an Apple tattoo.

     

    Only then would you think having alarms and notifications going off in your ear while having a phone conversation is ok.

     

    The Kool-Aid runs deep...

    There is an App called AutoSilent which has been available for a few years. As of today it came out with a new update (one that I actually requested) in which it will mute the phone during calls. No text alerts, no calendar alerts, etc. while on a call. It works. Great job AutoSilent. Check it out for yourself.

    Thanks but the App Auto Silent won't work during calls... That area is restricted by Apple. Only Apple can change the behaivor of alarms durings calls. But Thanks!

    It's a new update, and yes it does work. I've tested it several times today with calendar alerts and text alerts and it mutes during the phone call. If you don't believe me try it yourself.

    I believe you, does it has an automatic setting that would always be on, so that it would mute alarms during phone calls. Not some time limited setting but rather a long term undifined period? Thanks

    In the AutoSilent App settings there is a slider "Mute During Phone Calls" Activate that and as long as the App is running you should be good. Now, this is a brand new update so who knows if there will be any glitches. What I do know is that I contacted them 3 weeks ago asking if they could create this option. They responded back to me within a day saying that it should be no problem to create. They actually assumed that the phone muted during calls and had no idea that this was even an issue! Then they sent me an email this morning letting me know about the new update. These guys are great!
