Many times, we accidentally enable the ‘deliver quietly’ feature for unintended applications. But there is no need for panic because it is quite an easy task, to turn off deliver quietly on iMessage.
iPhone has the option to set your notifications in three different settings depending on your preferred choice for each application. You can choose to prominently have your notifications shown to you on your lock screen or notification center with sound alerts or not have to see them at all.
So what is the third option you can set your notifications to?
From iOS 12 onward, Apple released one of the most convenient features like managing notifications from the lock screen or notification center without going to Settings.
This is known as Instant Tuning. It enables the user to swipe on a notification and quickly mute it. So when an application delivers notifications quietly, it will not pop up on the lock screen. This also prevents the notification sounds and banners that show on the top of your home screen or when using other applications. They however can be found in your notification center.
Methods To Turn Off Deliver Quietly On iMessage
One of the reasons for Apple’s recognition has been its ability to stay ahead in the game. Their innovations in the smartphone industry have been remarkable. From sleek designs to excellent camera clarity, iPhones have got it covered.
iMessage is Apple’s proprietary messaging platform used by millions across the globe. Very often, messages received are spams, causing your iPhone to buzz throughout. Most people enable ‘deliver quietly’ for iMessage to find a way to stop these texts but miss important messages too.
