Some notifications are worthwhile, but sometimes there’a notifications you can do without. In fact, you may receive various news notifications even for you’ve never signed up to receive any headlines or news alerts.
It seems easy to pevent the News app from pushing these alerts to your iPhone and preventing them from appearing on your lockscreeen.
To do so open up your Settings app and then g to Notifications. Then find and tap on the News section. From there you can adjust your settings depending on her her you want to hide news alerts from the lockscreeen or if you ant to hide news entirely. To keep news from the lockscreeen only make sure the toggle nest to Show on Lock Screen is off. Or to hide all News notifications and alerts from everywhere in iOS, toggle the switch next to Allow Notifications to the OFF position. Then, exit out of Settings app as usual
With the News notifications now turned off (either for the cover sheet / lock screen, or entirely disabled so the News app won’t alert you whatsoever) you are now free to lock your iPhone or iPad, then pick it up again, and not have the display scattered with headlines.
As long as the Notifications are disabled for News app, these type of notifications and headlines will no longer show up on your devices screen:
Going further, if you’re not thrilled with these sort of headlines and “News” material dotting various places throughout iOS, you might also want to remove News headlines from Spotlight search in iOS too so that the “News” headlines will no longer appear in your iOS Spotlight search results as well.
As usual, you can always reverse these changes simply by going back to the appropriate Settings and toggling the switches again. So if you decide to hide the “News” headlines but later determine you really miss seeing those latest headlines on the iOS screen, you will be relieved to know those alerts are just a few settings taps away again.
