With iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 or later, you can schedule times to receive a summary of notifications each day so you can catch up when it's convenient for you. The summary is personalised to you and ordered by priority based on how you use your apps. The most relevant notifications will appear at the top.
In this podcast, Thomas Domville walks us through the process of setting up a notification summary and shows us how they appear in the Notifications Center.
To schedule a notification summary:
- Go to Settings > Notifications > Scheduled Summary, then turn on Scheduled Summary.
- Under Apps in Summary, select the apps you want to include in your notification summary.
- Under Schedule, tap the Add button to add a new schedule or the Remove button to remove a schedule. Then adjust the time for each scheduled summary you've set up.
To add new apps to the summary, go back to Settings > Notifications > Scheduled Summary and select the apps under Apps in Summary. Each app will appear with a number, which is the average number of notifications you receive from that app each day.
Any way to completely turn notifications off?
Every year, when I upgrade to the latest greatest IOS or MacOS, one of the first things I look to see is whether the new operating system allows me to completely turn notifications off. I would absolutely love to make notifications go away . . . forever. Do you know a way to do that?
