There are apps that you often use and when notifications come, you want to see immediately what it’s all about. On the other hand, there are also apps that you want to keep private and don’t want others to see any information about.

That’s the reason why Apple made it easier for users to change the notification style and how they’re displayed on the Lock Screen. You can choose how the notifications appear, when they appear and whether or not play a sound when they’re received.
In this post, we will show you how to do all that.
- Go back to the Home Screen and tap Settings.
This will open the Settings app that allows you to change some settings and features in your phone.
- Find and tap Notifications.
This will bring you to the screen where you can modify how notifications are received.
- Scroll down to the Notification Style section and look for the app you want to change the notification style of, and tap on it.
In this tutorial, let’s use Facebook as an example.
- Make sure the switch next to Allow Notifications is enabled.
You won’t be able to edit the notification style if you blocked the notifications of the app.
- For Time-Sensitive Notifications, make sure it’s enabled.
It should stay on the Lock Screen so you can immediately see what it’s all about.
- Under Alerts, you have to choose whether to show notifications on the Lock Screen, Notification Center or show their banners.
It’s a binary setting you check for enabled and no check for disabled.
- For the Banner Style, you have to choose between Temporary and Persistent.
If you choose Temporary, it means that you’ll see the banner when the notification is received but won’t stay like that for too long. If Persistent is selected, then the notification will be displayed as a banner all the time.
- For Sounds and Badges, you may enable their switches if you want to hear the notification tone when you receive one.
For the badges, it’s the number you can find at the top-right corner of the app’s icon.
- Tap Show Previews and select one of the options.
For Always, it means that notifications are displayed on the Lock Screen; When Unlocked means that the notifications are only shown if the phone is unlocked, and Never means to hide all the notifications of the app from the Lock Screen.
- Tap Notification Grouping and choose an option.
You may choose grouping by app, turn off grouping or let your iPhone decide how notifications are grouped.
- The Facebook Notification Settings will bring you to the Facebook app itself when you tap on it.
You will then have an option to either Mute push notifications or enable them. It’s all up to you.

But as far as changing the notification style of the app is concerned, that’s how it’s done.
We hope this guide can help.
