If you’ve been having trouble with your iPhone mail notifications not working, you’re not alone. Many users have reported this issue, and it can be frustrating. Fortunately, there are a few things you can try to fix the problem. In this blog post, we’ll go over some of the most common solutions. So if your iPhone mail notifications aren’t working, read on for some helpful tips!
Check iPhone Settings
If your iPhone mail notifications are not working, the first thing you should do is check your iPhone settings. There are a few things you can check to make sure that your settings are configured correctly.
First, open the Settings app and tap on “Notifications.” Make sure that the “Allow Notifications” switch is turned on. Next, scroll down to the “Mail” section and tap on “Notifications.”
Make sure that the “Alerts” setting is turned on. If it’s not, tap on it to turn it on. You can also choose how you want to receive alerts from the “Banner Style” and “Sound” options.
Finally, make sure that you have selected the correct email accounts under the “Include” section. If you’re not receiving notifications for a specific account, make sure that it’s included in this list.
Check Mail App Settings
If you’re not receiving notifications for new mail on your iPhone, the first thing you should check is your Mail app settings. Open the Settings app and select “Notifications.” Scroll down to the “Include” section and make sure that “Mail” is turned on.
If “Mail” is turned on but you’re still not receiving notifications, tap on it and make sure that both the “Allow Notifications” and “Show in Notification Center” options are enabled. You can also adjust the alert sound for new mail notifications and choose whether or not you want badges to appear on the Mail app icon.
Restart Your iPhone
If your iPhone’s mail notifications aren’t working, the first thing you should do is restart your device. This simple step can often fix minor software glitches that may be causing the problem. To restart your iPhone, just press and hold the power button until the “Slide to Power Off” slider appears. Once your device is off, press and hold the power button again to turn it back on.
If restarting your iPhone doesn’t fix the problem, there are a few other troubleshooting steps you can try. For example, you can check to see if you have Do Not Disturb mode enabled, or if you’ve accidentally muted notifications for the Mail app. You can also make sure that you have sound enabled for notifications in the Settings app. If none of these solutions work, you may need to reset your iPhone to its factory settings.
Delete and Re-Add the Mail Account
If your iPhone mail notifications are not working, one thing you can try is deleting and re-adding the mail account. This can often fix the problem, as it will re-establish the connection between your iPhone and the mail server.
To delete an email account from your iPhone, go to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Accounts -> Delete Account. Then, to add the account back, go to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Add Account. Follow the prompts to enter your account information and set up the account on your iPhone again.
After you’ve deleted and re-added your mail account, check to see if mail notifications are working properly.
