I'm a big fan of the Facebook integration in iOS 6, but it brings with it birthdays for all my Facebook contacts. I've figured out how to remove it from my calendar (de-select the calendar) but it still shows above my regular entries in notification centre. Any suggestions for getting rid of it?


I disabled the contacts synchronization and I don't receive birthdays notification anymore. However I'm still able to receive other notifications (e.g. posts, pictures, ...)

  • Is it a Facebook notification or a Calendar notification? Have you tried to turn of birthday alerts in Calendar preferences?

  • Where is that? I can't find it in mail contacts and calendars, quick google says it couldn't be done in iOS 5, changed in six? Oct 4 '12 at 11:14
