Having Bedside Mode on a BlackBerry is certainly nothing new. With the introduction of BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 we did get a quicker way of accessing the feature if it's one you use when you retire for the night.
One way to reach it is just the same as it's always been with BlackBerry 10 and that's to open up the clock app and drag down from the top bezel. You'll then be given the option to select Bedside Mode.
But like many other features within 10.2.1 you can now add Bedside Mode to your Quick Settings - meaning it's just a simple swipe away whenever you need it.
To set it up in Quick Settings just follow these simple steps:
- Open settings (swipe down from the top bezel)
- Select Quick Settings
- Tick Bedside Mode and you'll be ready to rock
In addition to just activating Bedside Mode you can of course dive into the settings and alter a couple of things. As you can see below you can toggle on/off Wireless Connections and Phone Calls - so you have the option to receive whatever is important to you - or nothing of course.
Options, options, options - just what we like and BlackBerry seem to be giving us more with every OS update - good stuff.
