Delayed notifications on iPhone?Here’s how to fix it

Rate this post

When I wake up, the first thing I do is check the notifications on my iPhone (I know it’s not a healthy habit). However, certain notifications may be delayed and miss time-sensitive notifications. If you are facing a notification delay on your iPhone, this can be due to a variety of reasons.

Read on to understand what caused the problem and how to fix it!

Why don’t I get notifications on my iPhone?

The most notable issue leading to notification delays is slow internet connection, both cellular and Wi-Fi. Another reason is if you have low data mode enabled in your Wi-Fi or mobile data options.

When low power mode is enabled, the app will not run in the background and notifications will be delayed to prevent the battery from draining quickly. Notifications tend to be delayed, especially if the battery is less than 20%.

Note: If you don’t receive any notifications, check out the instructions for fixing an issue where notifications don’t work on your iPhone.
