So, while setting up your iPhone in a hurry, you had decided to give a miss to Apple Pay. Now, iOS wants you to go through the left task sooner than later, but you are in no mood to yield and just want to remove the Apple Pay badge icon on your iPhone for good.
Don’t worry; mate! There is a way to remove Settings notification badge for Apple Pay setup. In fact, you can use these same steps to stop the finish-set-up alerts for other features as well. Let me show you how it’s done the quick way!
How to Get Rid of Settings Notification Badge for Apple Pay on iPhone
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iPhone.
Step #2. Now, you should see a prompt below Apple ID banner. Tap on it.
Step #3. On the next screen, you may get the options to manage the features, which you hadn’t enabled during the setup of your iOS device.
For instance, you might see—sign in to Apple ID, enable Siri and Set Up Apple Pay options.
Tap on Set Up Apple Pay and then select the option to set up the feature at a later stage.
You can follow this same trick to avoid getting alerts from other features as well.
Going forward, you will no longer see the red badge icon on the Settings app for enabling the payment service on your iPhone.
You can also head into Settings app → Notifications → select the app on which you don’t want to see notification badge anymore and then turn off the switch next to Badge App Icon.
Hopefully, the red alert will no longer annoy you: Have any feedback? Toss it up in the comments.
