Are you tired of constantly being interrupted by text notifications on your iPhone? Well, you’re in luck!

In this article, we will guide you through the steps to turn off text notifications on your iPhone, allowing you to regain control over your device and enjoy uninterrupted moments. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Settings App

To begin, locate the Settings app on your iPhone’s home screen. It is represented by a gray icon with gears. Tap on it to open the app.

Step 2: Select ‘Notifications’

Once inside the Settings app, scroll down until you find a list of options. Look for and tap on Notifications. This will bring you to the notification settings page.

Step 3: Choose the App

In the Notifications settings menu, you will see a list of all the apps installed on your iPhone. Scroll through the list and find the app for which you want to turn off text notifications. Tap on it to access its notification settings.

Step 4: Disable Text Notifications

In this app’s notification settings page, locate and toggle off the option that says ‘Allow Notifications’. This will disable all types of notifications for that particular app, including text notifications.


  • If you only want to disable text notifications but still receive other types of notifications from this app (such as badges or sounds), make sure to leave ‘Allow Notifications’ toggled on and proceed to Step 5.
  • If you want to disable all types of notifications for this app, including badges and sounds, leave ‘Allow Notifications’ toggled off and skip Step 5.

Step 5: Customize Notification Settings (Optional)

If you chose to keep ‘Allow Notifications’ toggled on in Step 4, you have the option to customize the notification settings further. Simply scroll down on the app’s notification settings page, and you will find various options to control the appearance and behavior of notifications for that app.

Here are some common customization options:

  • Banner Style: Choose between banners or alerts for how notifications appear on your screen.
  • Show Previews: Decide whether to show a preview of the notification content when your device is locked.
  • Badge App Icon: Enable or disable the red notification badge on the app’s icon.
  • Sounds: Select a sound to play when a notification is received from this app.


You have successfully turned off text notifications for a specific app on your iPhone. Repeat Steps 3-5 for any other apps you wish to modify. Now you can enjoy uninterrupted moments without being constantly bombarded by text notifications!

Note: Keep in mind that disabling text notifications may vary slightly depending on your iPhone model and iOS version. The steps outlined in this article apply to most recent versions of iOS, but if you encounter any discrepancies, consult Apple’s official documentation or support resources for more specific instructions.
