How to Turn Off Notifications in StandBy Mode on iPhone


The StandBy mode screen on iPhone is a nice full screen display that you can use to show a clock, a calendar, pictures, or almost anything else through a widget. Notifications that show up on this screen can eat up value real estate and either block valuable information, like on a clock or calendar, or ruin the aesthetic, like when you’re displaying a picture. Thankfully, you can easily disable notifications so they aren’t displayed while your iPhone is in StandBy mode.

Some of the images associated with the steps are included inline below. All images associated with these steps can be seen in the embedded YouTube video.
