2. Click on Notifications.

3. Choosing Scheduled Summary.

How to turn banner notifications On or Off 

You can enable notifications to appear as banners to ensure that you are constantly aware of when new ones arrive, even if you are using another app.

On the other hand, if alerts keep popping up on your iPhone or iPad screen while you’re using it and you don’t want to be bothered by them any longer, you can turn them off.

1. Your iPad or iPhone should now be in the Settings app.

2. Click on Notifications.

3. Choose the app whose banners you want to enable or disable.

4. If it isn’t already, turn the Allow Notifications setting on.

5. Pick the banner setup that you want.

Banner Notifications, setting them to be temporary or persistent 

Some applications are so crucial that you must ensure you never miss them. For instance, just because they vanish from view when you’re reading anything on Twitter shouldn’t cause you to forget about them.

For notifications of different importance, you can make them either transient or persistent.

At the top of your screen, brief banners will show before they vanish after around three seconds. Persistent flags must be manually swiped away or dealt with before they disappear.

1. On your iPad or iPhone, launch the Settings app.

2. Click on Notifications.

3. Decide which app you wish to get advertising and notifications for.

4. Pick a banner from the Alerts menu.

5. Banner Style by clicking.

6. To keep them around until you swipe them away, select Persistently. To make them automatically disappear, tap Temporary.

Final Thoughts

Be vigilant

In iOS 15, it is significantly simpler to personalize Notification Center banners, ringtones, and app icon badges.

Observing the new features that will be included in iOS 16 and after that will be interesting.
