However in iOS 12 the iPhone user is unable to set the DND (Do not disturb) feature with “until I leave this location”. The setting “until I leave the location” helps user to set the DND mode until the user is in one particular location. Once the iPhone changes its location the DND will be auto revoked from iPhone and goes back to previously set option.  To use this feature location service must be turned ON in iPhone and while activating the DND chose the option “until I leave this location”

While activating Do not disturb from the control centre on iOS 12,there is no option to choose “ until I leave this location”  while ensuing location service is ON. This is not a bug in iPhone or iOS 12 rather requires you to do some changes in settings as described below:
