My question is mostly in the subject line, but I'll add more clarity.
Whenever my device is in Do Not Disturb mode, it supresses all notifications exactly like one would expect. The issue is when I disable it in the morning either manually, or canceling my wake-up alarm, the notifications that use banners all come streaming in one after the other after the other after the other, etc.
It is beyond frustrating, especially when you're trying to do something like reading the subject of an email in the mail app. A banner notification comes in and covers it. I swipe it away. Another banner immediately comes in, covering it right back up again! I swipe that one away... Another banner comes in!!
My choices are...
- Turn Do Not Disturb back on (delaying the problem until later)
- Dismissing all notifications from the Home Screen (so now I don't know what they were!)
- Hurl the phone at the wall with sufficient velocity to stop said notifications permanently (always feels like the 'right option' at the time, but it usually subsides moments later.)
Simply put, there is never a case where to me it makes sense to stream them all in one-by-one at the top of the screen like that, especially if I have manually swiped them away.
In a perfect world, you'd get a single banner that said 'While you were away, you received xxx notifications' and tap it to go to the notification center, but I'd be happy with the ability to have it the way it is now so long as I'm given the option to say 'Stop notification banners for already-delivered notifications.'
Point being even if I did want to read them all right then, that is the most inefficient way to do so!
So... does anyone know how to say 'Hey... stop showing the @#$% banners one by one! It is beyond intrusive and incredibly frustrating.
