    This has probably been asked before, but I could not find anything.

    Is there a way to make my iPhone stop constantly alerting me that "enabling WiFi will improve location accuracy" and that it "has not been backed up in 2 weeks"? Getting super annoying.

    I haven't found a fix for this either, but I really hate it. I know turning on wifi will increase location accuracy, now of away because I don't care.

    I agree that's one of the alerts that bug me. I have wifi off for a reason, please don't nag me on it.

    Agreed! Also, the obtrusive "your iPhone battery is at 20%" messages are super annoying. I know that perfectly well k thx :mad:.

    Apple sure loves that location accuracy. Wonder why.

    It would be nice to turn this off. On a CDMA iphone I find "Data not available during this call" to be VERY annoying. Battery warnings are obnoxious too.

    The one that annoys me the most by far is the "Cellular Data is Turned Off for "<App Name>" message.

    It's like "Duh! I turned it off for a REASON! Maybe I don't need you reminding me every freaking time that cellular data is turned off for my Calculator app when I use it while not on Wi-Fi.

    The most annoying thing is that Spotify pops up with that message every single time I initially open the app even when I'm on Wi-Fi. Someone explain that one to me… :confused: *facepalm*

    YES! I hate that too. Google hangouts also gives me that message even when I'm on wifi like spotify does to you.

    Still happening in iOS 8. So dumb.

    Add a checkbox: "Don't show again". Check. Done.

    They don't care. It's been this way since iPhone Uno. The most annoying one is in Mail when there's no connection. It throws TWO alerts per mailbox. So if you have 10 mailboxes, you have dismiss the damn thing TWENTY TIMES. It's Apple's way of saying "F you pal, we've got your monies"
