    Before, notifications would leave the screen black, but pop up a subtle banner, then go away. Now, when a notification comes in, the screen wakes up along with the notification. The problem is that at night, when the screen wakes, it keeps me from falling asleep.

    Is there a way to get it to Afro like before 10?

    I know the DND, but I don't want to use that for fear of missing a call or important text.

    Thanks!

    Notifications have always woken the screen. Not sure why you think otherwise.

    About missing a call, I have DND set to let phone calls through no matter what.
    And if a text is important enough during night time, let them call me. A text is not important by definition to me.

    I've never missed anything with DND on. Just properly configure it and you'll be good to go (it's VERY easy to do, by the way).

    Not true. All 3 iPhones in my house used to do the same things. Notification would pop up, while leaving the rest of the screen black.

    Not on my iPhone. The screen would always come on with the notification just like SprSynJn.

    The only exception is if I was wearing my Apple watch. The notifications would goto the watch and the iPhone wouldn't show anything.

    But if my watch was on the charger or out of range, all notifications will light the screen. This was on IOS 9 as well.

    I don't understand what you mean by the last part of that reply. Leaving the rest of the screen black? Odd question, but are you sure you're using an iPhone?

    Yes, using iphones. iphone 5s, iphone6+, iphone6

    What I mean is that other than the bubble/window popping up for the notification, the rest of the unused screen remains black (as in, it doesn't show the wallpaper. time, anything else. Just the notification)

    I see what you mean now. You might be referring to iOS 10's new notifications view. The background is now visible when before it wasn't. Anyway you could post a screen shot?

    YES!!! Sorry, I probably wasn't explaining it very well. It would either be fairly black, or extremely muted. I found a photo online that shows what I am talking about how it used to be:

    But now, it's bright as heck!!

    I edited my last post after you quoted me. Sorry. Could you post a screen shot of what it looks like now without any private information shown?

    Unfortunately at work, where wifi isn't working at the moment, and I get below 3G, so using PC at work. Can't upload screenshot. However, here is a photo that shows what I'm talking about in ios 10:

    There's no getting away from the new lighter coloured Notifications banners. Yes, the iOS 9 way was light text on a blurred, darkened version of your lock screen wallpaper. In iOS 10 they are proper banners, light with black text. I'm guessing they are designed that way to make new users realise they are active items, you can activate and respond to them.

    All I can suggest is edit your lock screen wallpaper and make it much darker.

    As for "the rest of the unused screen remains black (as in, it doesn't show the wallpaper. time, anything else. Just the notification)", even your own example screenshot shows that's not true. But it was a lot darker than now.

    Andy, there are other examples out there where it is all black. I just grabbed a random one from GIS.

    However, good idea on lock screen wallpaper! I always set both to the same wallpaper, that I forgot you can choose a different one. Thanks!

    Get a piece of black card stock (probably 99 cents) from Hobby Lobby and cut it and fold it to fit over the front face of the phone.


    Edit: Took longer to get the image off my DSLR and resize it than to cut the paper and fold it lol. At any rate, pretend it's black card stock.
