Managing notifications had always been a bit tedious on iOS devices. But that long drawn theory seems to have changed now for the better. And one of the finest examples of how much things have improved could be the option to change notification settings right from the Lock screen in iOS 12.
So, if you find an app bombarding your NC, you can quickly configure the settings to keep the distraction at bay. Along with notification grouping, it’s the one feature that I have found very appreciable. They can play a significant role in keeping Notification Center uncluttered.
How to Change Notification Settings from Lock Screen on iPhone and iPad in iOS 12
Step #1. Bring up Notification Center on your iOS device.
Step #2. Now, swipe left on an alert and tap on “Manage.”
Alternately, you can just touch and hold an alert → tap on ellipses (•••)
Step #3. Next, a menu will show up on the screen.
Now, you have two options:
Deliver Quietly: It will make the alerts skip the Lock screen and directly go to the Notification Center. Besides, you won’t hear any sound and vibrations. But the app’s badge will continue to show up.
Turn Off: It lets you completely disable notifications from the app.
Tip: At any time you want the alert to arrive on LS in full-fledged form, go to the app’s notification and swipe left on it. Then, tap on “Manage,” and select “Deliver Prominently.”
Change Notification Settings
If you wish to customize the notifications even further, tap on Settings. It will take you directly to app’s notification settings. There you will have multiple options to manage the appearance of its notifications. For instance, you can completely turn off notification, choose a banner style, configure notification grouping, etc.
