iPhone Notifications: How To Silence Alerts

Have you ever been completely embarrassed by a loud, annoying ring or chirp sounding off from your iPhone while in a quiet, public setting? If you answered yes, then I’m sure you have been eager to know how to prevent this from happening again! Thankfully, silencing iPhone alerts and notifications is easier than you may think. And, if you’re like me (attached to your iPhone by the hip), being able to carry your phone with you at all times is absolutely essential.

By default, several e-mail and messaging apps send out noisy alerts.  Aside from creating a disturbance in a silent environment or being just plain annoying, these notifications also utilize some of the iPhone’s battery life every time your device is awakened out of sleep mode. Nevertheless, the easiest way to keep your iPhone quiet is to switch the mute toggle on (this can be found on the top left corner of your iPhone).
 
There are three different kinds of notifications that you receive on an iPhone: sounds, banner alerts that pop up on the main screen, and badges, which are the little numbers that show up right next to your app icons.  Luckily, modifying these alerts is pretty simple. To make these changes, the first step is to open Settings on your phone. Next, press Notifications, located in the left-side pane, and choose the appropriate app in the Notification Center.


To eliminate alerts all together for that particular app, switch the top toggle titled “Notification Center” to Off.  Another option is to modify the number of banner alerts that display on the screen, switching from the default amount (5) to 1, 10, or even 20. Below that is a section called “Alert Style,” offering three different choices: None, Banners, and Alerts. The banners option will display alerts at the top of your screen, which will automatically go away after a few seconds. The final option, Alerts, prompts the user for action before proceeding.  Lastly, the three final options located in the Notification Center allow the user to display or hide badge app icons, permit or restrict audible alerts, and display or hide alerts that pop up on the lock screen.

Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019) Review

Dell's flagship laptop returns to us in 2019 with refreshed specs, a brand new webcam design and a cheaper model. We review the XPS 13 9380 in full.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
The XPS 13 for 2019 ticks all the boxes. It looks great, the build quality is excellent, it’s nice and portable and has a wide range of specs to choose from.
While not a massive upgrade from last year's model, it’s had some solid refinement including getting the webcam back into the top bezel and also introduces a more affordable Core i3 edition.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.

Huawei P30 Pro Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours

Huawei's MWC press conference didn't include an announcement of the P30 range. Instead, it will hold a launch event in Paris at the end of March. We round up rumours, speculation and more on the new Huawei line-up, including the expected P30 release date, price and specifications.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.
