We receive many notifications in a day, and sometimes we clear them without even taking a look at them. If you have deleted an important notification from your lock screen accidentally, then you might be wishing to have a time machine. That’s not really possible, but we can help you retrieve past notifications in other possible ways.
However, keep in mind that if you have turned off the notifications individually for some apps, then the past notification of that app will not show in the notification control.
Why Don’t I See Notifications on iPhone?
Several things can affect how notifications work on your smartphone. Some features like airplane mode or do not disturb mode will completely silence and block notifications from appearing on your screen.
Turned Off Notifications
If you have not been receiving notifications from certain apps, then there’s a chance that notifications have not been allowed for that app. Some new apps on your phone might need this setting to be turned on, so you don’t miss out on important notifications.
Follow these steps to allow notifications from settings:
- Go to Settings
- Click on Notifications
- Click on any one of the apps
- Click on Allow notification toggle
Do Not Disturb Mode
Do not disturb mode blocks any kind of notifications to help you focus on your work or study. Sometimes, you turn do not disturb mode on but forget to turn it off due to which you won’t be getting any notifications from any apps.
Here’re the steps to turn off this feature:
- Open your home screen
- Swipe up from the bottom of your home screen
- Tap on the crescent moon sign
- If it loses its color, it is turned off.
Turn off Airplane Mode
Airplane mode is another one of the features of any smartphone, including iPhone. You must have turned airplane mode on to travel, charge your phone or to watch a movie. But remember to turn it off after because you won’t be getting no notifications if it is turned on.
Follow these steps to turn off airplane mode:
- Open your home screen.
- Swipe up from the bottom of your screen.
- Tap on the airplane sign.
