Using Personal Automations With iOS 13 Shortcuts

A new feature in iOS 13 and iPadOS is the ability to have Shortcuts trigger automatically, at a certain time of day, when you launch an app, change a setting or move to a new location. You can use this to make Shortcuts much more useful. Take a look at two quick examples. The first simply forces the Calendar to jump to the current day every time you open it. The second will display a special Reminders list when you turn on Do Not Disturb, but only if there is at least one item in that list.

    Hi, Gary!
    Is it possible to create a shortcut to reboot my iPhone X?

    Robert: No, but how much shorter can it get than pressing and holding the side buttons?

    Hey Gary,

    How possible it is to create a shortcut to disable email notifications, as soon as I arrive to my home, at Fridays, and enable it again on Mondays as soon as I leave home?

    Thank you!!

    Joel: Doesn’t look like there are any actions involving enabling or disabling notifications like that.
