A new Apple iPhone feature will do away with the urge to look at a text message while driving.

It’s called "Do Not Disturb While Driving," and will be part of Apple's iOS 11.

If the iPhone is connected to a car using either Bluetooth or a cable, or if the car is moving, the phone will block any notifications for things like text messages or news updates.

The iPhone screen will also be locked to keep drivers from using many apps while driving. However, passengers, who are riding, not driving can disable the feature.
