Chapter in this post:
All sorts of push notifications appear on the iPhone screen throughout the day. Some of these notifications are important, e.g. B. with regard to incoming messages and e-mails. But there are also many app notifications that are not so important and because of which a look at the smartphone display and the associated distraction from more important things is not worthwhile. These notifications can be suppressed with the focus feature as well as collected and displayed at a fixed point in time. I'll show you how to do the latter in this guide to the notification overview on iOS.
Notification overview: iPhone function that displays notifications collectively
To activate the function, you must first call up the settings of your Apple smartphone. It is important to note that the feature described here is only available from iOS 15. So if you are using a non-compatible device with iOS 12 or similar, you will not find the necessary menu items. But if you have a current model with a newer operating system, then proceed as follows:
- Opens the Settings of the iPhone
- Type now Messages in the overview
- Choose the point at the top Planned overview from
- Activates the "Scheduled Overview" slider
- Now select times and apps for the overviews
What is important remains important: messages always get through
One of the most important hints can be found above directly on the first screenshot: "Calls, direct messages and urgent notifications are always delivered immediately, even for apps that are included in your overview.' This means that the scheduled notifications digest in iOS will not include messages from Discord, Telegram, Signal, Threema, WhatsApp or the like. SMS also come through directly and you will be notified of calls (both mobile and app telephony). If you also want to prevent such notifications, then the focus function will probably be of more help to you. There you can set what should be allowed through for work, home and different times. It can be found under Settings -> Focus.
