One of the big features of the new iOS 11 update is the Do Not Disturb function sending anyone who tries to contact you an automatic message. It has a stock standard response, but you can also customise it to make it sound more like you.
The main reason for this feature is to ensure when someone is behind the wheel of a car, they won't be distracted by notifications, and that person's contacts will know why they're not replying.
However, one woman found out the hard way that sometimes you don't want that message to send automatically to everyone who messages or calls you. Aiman Siddiqui got a text from her future mother-in-law, which read: "How r u feeling?? I have bought more joshanda. I'll give them to Arham to give to u."
The 20-year-old had her phone on Do Not Disturb because she's currently studying for exams, so that meant her phone replied with the following hilarious but cringeworthy message: "I'm studying leave me [the fuck] alone. Bih ahhh tryna make me fail all the time. I GON BE SUCCESSFUL."
Which was followed by Apple's standard message: "I'm not receiving notifications. If this is urgent, reply 'urgent' to send a notification through with your original message.'"
It's probably not the best thing to tell your future relative to piss off, but Ms Siddiqui quickly tried to fix the situation. She's told Buzzfeed: "When I realized his mom had texted me I started freaking out really bad.
"Never let technology text for you. The Apple update seems amazing but please use it wisely."
For anyone who wants to use the feature, Aiman has posted a short video on the best way to customise it.

Her fiancé, Arham, jokingly retweeted the post, saying: "Welp, gotta throw the whole engagement away."
Others on social media thought the mishap was hilarious, with one person commenting: "She just wanted to be successful, but she successfully ruined her relationship with her future MIL."
Another adds: "If that was me I would just start digging my grave fam, sis needs help."
"Somewhere inside my heart I know I shouldn't be laughing but I am. I SO am! OMG! I'm so sorry for your embarrassment but this is HILARIOUS!" says a third user.
The feature is a pretty decent way to ensure that you don't keep looking at your phone while you're driving. But if you want to install the feature, maybe think twice about what you want your automatic reply to be.
