Have you ever noticed that when you receive app notifications on your iPhone, a counter balloon pops up in an app on your home screen? Notification notices are to signal that an app has sent alerts to you and needs your attention to view them.
In that sense, it’s useful to see directly on the home screen if there’s news in the apps we’ve downloaded without having to open them one by one and check manually. However, it can be annoying to see multiple apps at once, especially those that accumulate dozens — even hundreds — of alerts. This is also true for times when we are working, or need to concentrate, and we come across notification notices clamoring for attention. It’s not productive at all, is it?
It could be a practical solution to go to the Settings app and disable an app’s notification, so the red balloons disappear from the apps, right? While it is possible, this method is not practical at all. You may want to hide notifications notices only for a period of the day, without having to turn it on and off all the time. Also, if you have a lot of applications installed, it will be a lot of work.
