View Full Version : Does anyone else get annoyed by notifications blurring the lock screen?

One thing that bothers me more than anything else with iOS 7 is how as soon as you get a notification it blurs your lock screen until you unlock your phone.

I have a nice wallpaper on my lockscreen that I'm so happy to see not being obscured by sliders and time like on iOS 6, but WTF is the point of having a beautiful lock screen if it's blurred to hell as soon as you get an e-mail?

Or at work, there's a Starbuck nearby, so I have a pass on my lock screen displaying permanently, blurring it to a funny brown colour for the next 8 hours.

Not cool :(.

Nope, I'm good with it. When there's a notification, I'm more interested in reading that then viewing the background behind it.

Nope, I really really like it. A nice touch by Apple.

With the earth paper, it makes a nice blurry diagonal blue haze right behind notifications and lockscreen pad.

It also helps legibility of notifications,

I really like the blur efect too, BUT something i really dislike is the transition from the blurred notification lockscreen to the normal lockscreen, the blur dissapears so awkwardly

This is also what i think.

I hate it too. One of the few things in iOS7 that I just can't stand.

Why won't Apple just give us on/off switches for simple things like this that would make everyone happy..

In order to please everybody that would mean a whole lot of switches, because it seems as if some people are bothered with each and every detail of the OS.

Would YOU want to scroll through a list of 250 switches to find the specific one that YOU are bothered about?

There aren't that many things to customise. I get where you're coming from but we all know Apple always gives us way less options to customise things than other manufacturers.

Yes. I don't like it. When it happens, I don't see what I'm used to seeing, and wonder what's wrong.

Now, will I get used to it? I suppose so. But it is difficult for me to see this change as an improvement.

Thanks a lot, I was fine with it until you made me really think about it:D It's no big deal, but options in settings with different styles of notifications would be real nice.

No, I think it looks great, depending on your background of course.

I like it I just wish notifications were smaller like in os6 so that you would be able to see more at one time.

Exactly. How many times have we heard that on this forum. We can't have a setting for everything.

It's not but that doesn't make it any better.

Not a big fan of it, but since all you have to do is pull down Notification Center and it goes alway, I can live with it

You can disable having the notifications show on the lock screen, if I recall correctly.

The blurring is used to allow you to read the text over it. It did it in iOS 7 too, but would put it in an opaque box instead (still blocking the background) or in a thin wide box across the screen.

Solution: Disable lock screen notifications in Settings > Notification Center:cool:

thanks guys, I know I can disable this. I guess I just wish it wouldn't blur it, but partly tint, or something. I guess it's time to change the wallpaper...

Wait for a jailbreak and then you can do what your wishing to do
