What if WhatsApp messages, iMessages, Twitter, what if emails, delivery notice of something you’ve bought, bank notices … Every day, the screen of your iPhone is abuzz with notification activity. And also the lock screen if you have them activated so that they can be seen there as well. But you may need a little time for yourself, a little peace, and even if you keep your mobile connected to the Internet, you don’t want to see the warnings reflected on the lock screen.
Can anything be done? Yes, turn off these notices so they don’t appear on the lock screen. And there are two ways:
Through the lock screen itself
This method is used to hide the notifications on your lock screen of an application that you want not to leave. For example, hiding email notifications will not make your iPhone hide notifications from text messages such as WhatsApp or Telegram, but you will have to do the process app after app.
- Look at the lock screen and find the notification for that specific app that you want to hide
- Swipe left with your finger on the app notice
- This gesture will open a pop-up menu with various options. You must click Manage / Manage
- Within the options that will appear, choose the first one, Notify silently
When activated, the messages that come to you from that app will appear in the iOS notification center, but not on the iPhone’s lock screen, nor will you hear any sound or see a counter on the app icon.
Through iPhone Settings
Again, you will have to do this for each app you want to hide notifications, but the process is straightforward and shouldn’t take long. And so your notifications will be hidden on your lock screen.
- Find the Settings section on your iPhone
- Click on Notifications
- Find the application you want to hide notifications from and click on it
In “Alerts” touch the “Lock screen” option until the circle below is not marked. Make sure the “Lock screen” option is unchecked.
