“Finish Setting Up Your iPhone”: Get rid of this annoying prompt in Settings

If you skipped setting up a feature while setting up the iPhone, then Settings app will keep showing you a prompt - "Finish Setting Up Your iPhone." If this annoys you, here's a workaround to remove it completely.

Setting up an iPhone from scratch is a pretty smooth and straightforward process. But with iOS 11, it has bought with itself an annoying thing. If you skip setting up Siri, Apple Pay, or other features, you’ll see “Finish Setting Up Your iPhone” prompt in the Settings app; marked with a red exclamation mark, which is admittedly annoying.

The most frustrating part is that the message is not temporary, it stays there permanently unless you set up the services that iOS wants you to set up. Like for myself, I cannot set up Apple Pay simply because it isn’t available in my country. Thankfully, there’s a workaround to get rid of this annoying prompt, and that’s precisely what we are going to talk about.

Skipping more than one feature during the setup, you will have a prompt with Finish Setting Up text on the screen.

Step #3. If you have skipped just one option, then tap on the Set Up prompt displayed on the screen.

Step #4. On the next screen, you’ll likely have two options – “Continue” and “Set Up Later”. Tap on Set Up Later option.

Step #5. Repeat the processes for other features, and you’ll get rid of the red exclamation mark asking you to finish the setup process.

In simple terms, we just started the process of setting up the feature and then canceled it. Doing so removes the prompt in the Settings app.

Note: If you don’t see the option to set up the feature later, then you need to force close the Settings app and repeat the steps.

Following the above steps will surely help you get rid of the prompt. Just in case it doesn’t help, try enabling AirPlane mode from the Settings app. Then turn it off by going to Settings → General → Software Update. Don’t use Control Center for this, things have changed since iOS 11.
