If you are not careful when starting new apps, you will find yourself immersed in annoying notifications. They take up your time and are somewhat hard to turn off via the Settings app. Let’s explore how to quickly disable these notifications on your iPhone or iPad.
This is for iPhone and iPad
Turn Off Notifications
First, unlock your device to display your Home screen. On this screen, hold and swipe down from the top center of your screen to reveal your Notifications. Refer to below image:
On a Notification you would like to disable, hold and swipe to the left. See following image for WordPress Beginner notification:
A sliding menu option will be displayed for three actions you may take. The actions are as follows:
Manage – allows you to manage future Notifications, and to disable it.
View – takes you to the app that initiated the Notification.
Clear – removes the Notification from your screen, but does not remove it.
In my example, I decided to choose the TV App. Simply tap Turn Off to disable the Notification. Tapping the Deliver Quietly option allows you to receive future Notifications without receiving a sound or vibration. Refer to below image:
A pop-up confirmation message will ask if you really want to turn off all Notifications for this app. Just tap Turn Off All Notifications. See following image:
From now on you will no longer receive Notifications for the chosen app.
