    i’m kind of weird like this. I don’t use a lot of notifications because I’ve heard they run down your battery. I was just wondering how many people uses notifications on their iPhone? I just now I turned on my local news notification because I want to know if we have to mask mandates

    I use Notifications on my iPhone and other devices, but I fine-tune them. If my VIP phones or texts me, I will get an audible identifiable notification plus a banner. If I get a text from a contact, I get a Ding. Otherwise, my phone does not disturb me.

    Exactly this!

    I only get notifications for things I want to get notified of. I disable notifications for games, streaming services, etc.

    I use notifications for most things. I do not use notifications for ongoing chats that include multiple people because it’s too disruptive especially when I’m at work. I have also set up specific ringtones for different people so that I know who a text is from when a text comes through.

    Texts, phone and calendar. That’s it. Otherwise it would make me crazy.

    My notifications are limited to things that I need to be notified of. Messages, mail, reminders and my sports app.

    I use them for calls/texts, weather, certain news, calendar/reminders. Only calls/texts from favorites & weather ding...everything else is silent.

    Calls, texts, email, calendar, slack, linkedin, FB Messenger (not Facebook though). For these my settings are always:

    Lock Screen
    Notification Center
    Banners (persistent)
    Sound
    Badges
    Show previews while unlocked

    I get a lot of notifications and I don’t find it impacting my battery terribly. My phone came off the charger at 7:00am and 1:35am now. So 18.5 hours and still at 56% battery life on my 11 Pro as I’m headed off to sleep.

    I use notification for things I want to be notified from, I have a lot of apps that only shows badges and notifications on lock screen for exampel but I don’t want to bee disturb by them.

    You could say, if I think it’s important it will notify and things I don’t think is important don’t notify with sound or vibration.

    I have never thought about battery life and notifications

    Do you know just how many notifications you'd have to get to drain a mobile device battery?

    I use all notifications.

    Initially I enable notifications for all apps that I install.
    When I find them to be annoying I opt to deliver them quietly.

    I usually prefer “badge or lock screen notifications”. The only sound notifications that I use are for texts from family members, friends,coworkers and weather related notifications. I also have a sound notification set up for work emails.

    I did not do this because I was trying to save on battery life. I did this because I find a lot of sound notifications annoying.

    My colleague, @Lee_Bo, already said something similar, but it’s a fable that disabling notifications save battery.

    Even if it does, you may get 5 minutes longer battery life. 5 freaky whole minutes. Yippieee Kaaa Yayyyyy. /sarcasm

    I typically run all notifications (where it makes sense like Messages/IM or Alertable).

    I will disable notifications if the app becomes heavily annoying.

    I use all notifications with badges, banners, and lock screen but no audible sound and I've never had battery drain.
