How to Disable Shared Photo Stream Notifications on iPhone and iPad

Don't want notifications from shared Photo Stream anymore? Check out these quick steps to turn off notifications from a single stream or all the Photo Streams on your iPhone and iPad!

Sharing cool photos and videos with friends and family offers me enormous joy. With iCloud Photo Sharing, I’m able to seamlessly share all of my awesome pics with my loved ones. To bring more fun into the play, I allow them to also add their beautiful pics and comments to the shared photo stream. Hence, whenever anyone adds a new shot or comment, I get alerts about it, which help me remain updated with ease. But when I don’t want random alerts to take away my peace, I completely disable photo stream notifications on my iOS device.

Fortunately, there is an option to turn off alerts both from specific or all photo streams. Just in case you don’t want to altogether pull down the curtain, you can customize the alert style and type depending on your convenience. Here is how it works!
