Notifications can become very intrusive on a smartphone. Luckily, a handy feature of the iPhone allows you to choose which ones have the right to send us! We explain how to manage an iPhone application in order to define its permissions.

Some applications allow you to directly adjust the display of notifications within them, but going through the iPhone settings allows you to have an overview of them and to define limits more easily.


Disable App Notifications on iPhone

  1. Open the app Settings


  2. Locate the menu Notifications and access it

  3. Listed on the page are all the apps installed on your iPhone. Identify the one(s) whose notifications you want to disable, and tap on them

  4. Several options are available to you. You can choose to revoke notification permission, disable the display of alerts, badges or banners, or set them on a case-by-case basis. You just need to uncheck unnecessary display styles

  5. Further down, two checkmarks also allow you to interrupt the emission of a sound when receiving a notification, or to turn off tablets red showing the number of notifications remaining.


Disable app notifications from the lock screen

  1. When you receive a spam notification, swipe left on the notification from your lock screen or from the notification center.

  2. Press Manage

  3. Choose between the Silent distribution or deactivation pure et simple

Since iOS 10, adjusting the display of notifications is much more granular than in the past. The settings allow you to choose precisely which notifications have the right to be displayed, and to define the way in which they do so.
