Enable or Disable Push Notifications in Gmail on iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, Sid Bedekar, Jen M
You are watching VisiHow. In this video, I am going to show you how you can enable and disable push notifications for the Gmail application on an iPhone 6.
To begin, we need to unlock the phone by pressing the lock button on the side or the home button at the bottom to bring up the lock screen.
Swipe right to enter the passcode or we can use the fingerprint scanner to unlock the phone.
Find the Gmail icon which is the white one here.
Also locate the Settings icon which is the gray one with the cog.
Enter the Settings first by tapping on it once.
We can scroll down until we find the applications which are in alphabetical order and find and tap the Gmail application. Ours is right at the top.
Then tap on "Notifications" which is the middle option.
Then enable the notifications by pressing the bubble on the right-hand side of "Allow Notifications". We can disable by pressing the bubble again. Once we have enabled them, we can go through and edit our preferences.
We can select how many notifications we'd like to see in the Notification Center from Gmail by pressing on the first option.
The default option is "5 Recent Items" which has the check on the right-hand side. We can choose 1, 10, or none depending on our preference. We will leave ours as 5 for now.
We can press back to return to "Notifications".
Next, we can enable or disable "Sounds".
We can enable or disable our "Badge App Icon".
Finally, we can also enable or disable the "Show on Lock Screen" option.
If we have the "Show on Lock Screen" enabled, we can go down to the pictures at the bottom where we can select exactly how we'd like the notifications to be presented.
At the moment, the ring is around the word "Banners" and when we tap on "Alerts" or "None", the ring moves to those options which means those are the ones selected.
We can press the back arrow in the top left-hand side of the screen until we have returned to the main settings page. Our settings have been automatically saved.
We can press the home button to return to the home screen.
We can then enter our Gmail application normally.
