Do you feel bombarded by iPhone notifications? If so, there’s a way to silence all of your notifications. Or, you can pick and choose the notifications you want to see and those you want to ignore. Let’s examine how to gain control over your notifications.
This is for the iPhone. Screenshots are from iPhone 14 Pro running iOS 16+
Using Do Not Disturb Mode
The easiest way to silence your notifications is to turn on Do Not Disturb mode from the Control Center. Swipe down from the very top-right of your screen. Then, select:
Focus > Do Not Disturb
Refer to the below image:
If you want to schedule Do Not Disturb mode for a specific time, you can use Focus too.
First, launch the Settings app on your iPhone. In Settings, tap:
Focus > Do Not Disturb
See the below image:
Next, you can set which notifications you allow (if any) and choose a custom Home or Lock screen to use in Do Not Disturb mode. See the following image:
Now, under Set a Schedule, tap Add Schedule to set when you would like to enable Do Not Disturb mode. Refer to the below image:
Next, you have three options for setting a schedule. see the below image:
Next, you can set a Time, Location, and App to silence notifications. See the following image:
If you want to disable notifications for a specific app, you can manage the notification settings for each app on your iPhone.
First, open Settings on your device. Then, tap Notifications. Refer to the below image:
Next, on the Notifications page, in the Notification Style section, tap the app for which you want to disable notifications. See the below image where we are choosing the ActiveArmor app:
Now, on the app page, at the top, toggle OFF the Allow Notifications option. See the following image:
Next, a screen will open showing the Allow Notifications option is OFF. Refer to the below image:
Now, tap the Back icon and notice that notifications for ActiveArmor are OFF. See the below image:
Your iPhone will not send you notifications from your chosen app.
