        Our team is developing a product to help reduce teenage cell phone usage while driving.  The product hinges on being able to detect the status of Do Not Disturb While Diriving.   I submtted a bug report but got a response that it was a duplicate report with not amplifying information. 

         

        Is there a way to find out if this fuction is planned to be available in the future?  Is it feasable to be able to chedk the status of DND based on Apple's concerns with APPs controling core functions? 

         

        Is there a function / setting that DND While Driving sets that a public API can check the status of?

         

        Thank you.

          What was your bug number?

          In general, Apple doesn’t discuss future plans.

          Is there a function / setting that DND While Driving sets that a public API can check the status of?

          Not that I’m aware of, but I’d caution you about going down that path anyway.  In my experience, using setting A to infer the value of setting B is a binary compatibility trap, because such connections can change over time.
