Here’s a quick tip on accessing your Notifications without unlocking your iPhone.  Makes reading your text messages, Instagram comments, or any Notifications easy and fast.

Notification Alerts

Most apps you download ask you to give permission to receive Notifications.  If you always answer no to this request, then this post doesn’t apply to you.  But you still may want to know this because it allows you to view your Notifications without opening each app individually.

Below is a text message alert I sent to myself for testing.  Ok, yes I sometimes text myself something I want to find easily and because I can easily forward the text to a family member or friend.  🤷🏻‍♀️😂

Speaking of family members, shout out to my niece’s son, 👋🏼👋🏼 Dylan Train 👋🏼👋🏼for mentioning this tip that he likes to use on his iPhone for my website!
