Enable Do Not Disturb at Bedtime

The hidden weather widget will appear only when Do Not Disturb at Bedtime is enabled. It basically hides the notifications and also dims the display. Only time and date are shown on the screen when it’s ON. Besides, it also shows the weather widget on the next morning. Head over here to turn on DND for bedtime.
