    I'm quite confused, as when my iPhone is locked and I get a notification, the background wallpaper seems to go black and slightly blurry. This also happens when listening to music. Does anyone know how to stop this, as I would like to be able to see my wallpaper when listening to music. It is possible, as my friends screen isn't black and fuzzy but she doesn't know how it got like that.

    Have you tried rebooting your device to see if it somehow corrects itself?

    It is working as intended. The wallpaper is blurred out when you receive a notification. Even when listening to a song with album art.

    Try rebooting your device. Press and hold the power button and the home button down until you see the Apple logo then release.

    I think it's supposed to do that way so you can read the notifications. You can go to notifications in settings and turn everything off for "Show in Lock Screen". That would take care of much of it. And you could still show the notifications on the pull down notification screen.

    If you receive a message on your notification screen, the background is supposed to be blurry. It's the same on my iPhone and iPad too.

    As others have said, go into Settings and turn off Lock Screen Notifications but keep them in your Notification Pull Down.

  3. When you block a number, is it blocked on both the iPhone & iPad?
