How to Manage Notifications on the iPhone

How to Manage Notifications on the iPhone – This article will show you how to handle your iOS device’s push notifications. Push notifications are messages from apps that indicate something you should be aware of. You may want to see all of your alerts, or you may want to limit the number of applications that annoy you. The instructions in this article are for iOS 11 and later users.

How to Manage iPhone Push Notifications

As part of iOS, push notifications are supported by default. Choose which apps should give you updates and what kind of alerts they should send.

  • To open the Settings app, tap it.
  • To see the applications on your phone support notifications, go to Notifications.
  • Choose when you want updates to appear by tapping Show Previews.
  • Receive reminders if the phone is locked or unlocked.
  • Alerts do not appear on the Lock Screen when it is unlocked. Choose this choice if you want to avoid interruptions or keep your privacy.
  • Never: Phone alerts are never sent.
  • Tap an app whose notification settings you want to change in the Notifications settings, then turn on the Enable Notifications toggle switch to show notification options for that app.
  • Turn off the Allow Notifications toggle switch if you don’t want to receive push notifications from the app.
  • Pick the warning forms you want to use in the Alerts section (in iOS 12). The ones that are involved have a checkmark next to them.
  • When the phone is locked, alerts appear on the screen.

Notification Center: Alerts are sent to the Notification Center, which you can access by swiping down from the top of the screen or from the Lock Screen. When the phone is unlocked, banners appear. Set the length of time notifications to appear on the screen by tapping Banner Style (in iOS 11, tap Display as Banners). Then choose one of the following options:

Temporary: These alerts appear for a brief period of time before vanishing.

Persistent: These messages will remain on your phone until you press them or dismiss them. On an iPhone, you can change the banner style and choose from a variety of choices.

Other Notification settings that can be changed include:

Turn on the Sounds toggle switch to make the iPhone ring when this app sends you a notification. Except for AMBER, Emergency, and Public Safety warnings, you won’t hear any updates if your iPhone is muted or set to Silent Mode (if these are active).

When the app icon has alerts, turn on the Badges toggle switch to show a red number on the icon.

To monitor if alerts appear on the phone’s screen while it’s locked, tap Show Previews. Disable this setting for confidential or sensitive information and use it for items that need immediate attention, such as voicemail messages and calendar events.

To display previous notifications from this app in Notification Center, allow Show History. In iOS 12, this option isn’t open. Choose Notification Grouping in iOS 12 to automatically group alerts by app or not at all.

For each app’s notification permissions, repeat the procedure. Not every app has the same features. Some people have less. More is available in a few apps, especially those included with the iPhone, such as Calendar and Mail. Experiment with the settings until you’ve got the alerts set up the way you want them.
