How to Use Instant Tuning in iOS 12 to Manage Notifications from LockScreen

Time to stop alerts from distracting you! With iOS 12 Instant Tuning, you can customize notification settings right from the Lock screen on your iPhone and iPad. Let's dive right in to get going...

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.

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.
