If you have “Do Not Disturb”; enabled on your iPhone and someone sends you an SMS, they may receive an “Auto Answer” in response. How to configure that message and decide who gets to see it.
First open “Settings” by tapping the gray gear icon. It’s usually on the first page of your home screen.
Touch “Do Not Disturb” in “Settings”.
In the “Do Not Disturb” settings, scroll down until you see the Auto Answer options. Press “Auto Answer”.
On the next screen, tap the text entry area and type a message you want. Depending on your settings (as we explain below), this message will be automatically sent to people who send you a message while “Do Not Disturb” is enabled.
When you have finished entering the message, press “Back”.
To change who will receive the Auto Answer message, touch “Auto Answer To” in the “Do Not Disturb” options.
You will see a list of options, including “None” (this turns off Auto Answer), “News” (people who have recently texted), “Favorites” (people in your favorite contact list) or “All contacts” (All in your contact list ). Touch the option you want to select.
