My iPhone, for some reason (I haven't set up anything like that), shows the next day's birthdays everyday at 12:00 (at noon). How do I prevent that? I don't want to remove them from calendar, I just want to remove those annoying notifications.

(Default Alert Times for Birthdays is already set to "None")

  • Try turning off the Birthdays calendar in the Calendar app?

  • @JohnRamos I DO want birthdays in my calendar. I just don't want notifications for them. Aug 27, 2016 at 14:18

1 Answer 1

  • iOS Calendar: Go to

    preferences / mail, contacts & calendar / calendar / default alert times / birthdays

    and select none. That should prevent your iOS calendar from notify you whenever there is a birthday in your calendar.

  • Facebook: Maybe these notifications are from your Facebook app. Try turning these notifications off.

Also have a look at this (similar) question.

    There is an option called "default alert times", and it has the option Birthdays, so it's probably that. But, it's already set to none. Aug 27, 2016 at 9:46
  • @CanPoyrazoğlu So it did not work? Have you installed another calender app like Fantastical or Sunrise?

  • Nope, it didn't work (it was already set to none anyway). No, I don't use any calendar app or import any calendars (other than Facebook). Sep 3, 2016 at 10:12
  • Have you tried turning notifications for Facebook of temporarily? I Added that to my initial answer above.
