To manage notifications on devices like iPads and iPods:

  • Settings App: Open Settings.
  • Notifications: Tap on Notifications.
  • Announce Notifications: Turn off the Announce Notifications toggle.

For users who frequently switch between devices, managing notification settings separately on each device ensures a consistent experience.

Control Center can offer quick access, and customizing via CarPlay settings can prevent distractions while driving.

Adjust these settings based on how and where you use your devices most.

Ensuring your AirPods settings are tailored to your preferences across multiple devices enhances your daily experience, making interactions more seamless and less disruptive.

Managing Notifications on Your Device

To control notifications effectively, you need to know how to customize settings, adjust notifications for specific apps, and schedule when you receive them.

Customizing Notification Settings

You can customize your notification settings directly on your iPhone. Open the Settings App, then navigate to Notifications.

Here, you will find various options to adjust how you receive notifications. You can turn Announce Notifications on or off with a simple toggle.

If you use AirPods or compatible Beats headphones, you can manage announcements specifically for these devices.

Toggle the switch to adjust how and when notifications are announced. You can also set preferences for banners, sounds, and badges.

This allows you to prioritize more important notifications and reduce distractions.

Adjusting Notifications for Specific Apps

Different apps may have different notification needs. For instance, you might want to receive all updates from Slack but only critical alerts from a game app.

Go to Settings > Notifications, then scroll down to see a list of your apps. Tap on any app to customize its notification settings.

Here, you can choose how notifications appear (banners, pop-ups) and whether they should make a sound. You may also disable notifications entirely for less important apps.

For third-party apps, especially communication apps like Slack, you can often find additional in-app settings to fine-tune notifications even further.

Scheduling and Allowing Notifications

Schedule notifications - iPhone

To minimize interruptions, it’s useful to schedule notifications. In the Settings App, go to Focus which includes Do Not Disturb.

Here, you can schedule times when notifications are allowed and when they are silenced. You can also set exceptions for certain apps or contacts.

This ensures that you receive important notifications even when your phone is in quiet mode.

For instance, if you’re in a meeting, you might want to allow notifications only from Slack or email while silencing everything else. This way, you stay focused while still being reachable for urgent matters.
