I hear my iPhone chime upon the arrival of a notification. Minutes later it shows up on my Mac, even when I am working actively on the Mac.

Is there a way to tell the notification to arrive on the device with the active screen first?

I got similar issue with FaceTime. The request comes first to the device I'm not using currently.


  • Mac Pro 2012 running OS X Yosemite

  • iPhone 6 running iOS 12.1

  • Notifications normally come to the device last used. Is it not doing that? – Tetsujin Apr 9 at 15:43
  • No. It's not doing that. – Sherwood Botsford Apr 10 at 12:57
