How to Group Notifications By App on iPhone or iPad

Group Notifications makes it more convenient to access recent alerts from a particular app. Besides, it also prevents the Notification Center from bringing cluttered. That being said, the newest iOS version automatically organizes contents from the same app in separate groups. This keeps the NC neat while also offering quick access to alerts from specific apps. However, if you don’t prefer automatic segregation, you can choose to group notifications by an app. Swim across to find how it’s done!

How to Group Notifications By App on iPhone or iPad

Step #1. Open Settings app on your iOS device → Now, tap on Notifications.

Tap on Settings then Notifications on iPhone

Step #2. Next, select your favorite app → Scroll down and tap on Notification Grouping.

Step #3. Finally, select By App.

Going forward, all the alerts from this app will be assembled in one stack.

Do note that you will need to repeat the steps for each app which alerts you want to get in one neatly organized bunch.

If you ever wished to go back to the automatic grouping, return to the same settings, and select Automatic in the end.

How to Disable Group Notification by App

No matter how good something is, it can’t impress everyone due to the difference in interest and requirement. If you don’t find notification grouping helpful, you can choose to disable it. Keep in mind, you will have to turn it off on an app basis as you can’t get it done for all apps at once.

Step #1. Open Settings app → Notifications.

Tap on Settings then Notifications on iPhone

Step #2. Now, find the app which alerts you don’t want to group and tap on it → scroll down and tap on Notification Grouping.

Choose an App and Tap on Notifications Grouping

Step #3. Select Off.
