I've immediately upgraded to iOS 10.1. I was wondering how can I keep getting notifications but without it waking my screen.

You can turn on Do Not Disturb (Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to summon Control Centre) or if you got a 6 or later, you can put it face down the table.

I've got the 6s plus. THanks for the tip.

It's a bit different from android, missing the "proper" notifications and widgets. :p

You could set all of your notifications in Settings-Notifications to not show up on Lock Screen. That way you'll get them still, but they just won't appear on the Lock Screen and therefore won't wake your screen. Otherwise, putting it face down works.

Enjoy your phone, I remember my first iPhone, the 3GS. Was so effin' excited, I couldn't sleep without looking at it for hours.

Although I am an iPhone user, I will say that the notifications on Android are better handled, in my opinion. I always enjoyed how the screen does not light up on Android and the LED notification light is always nice (on most Android devices).

I also find the haptic keyboard Android offers to be really awesome; I really wish iOS would make use of haptics while typing. It is almost a no brainer since the 7 has the newly improved taptic-engine..

That being said, welcome to iOS.

This is the best answer. Turning on DND means you won't receive any form of notifications -- no sound/vibrate for new messages; your phone won't ring (except when a "Favorite" contact calls); etc.

You will still get the notifications, just that there won't be any alerts for them essentially--you'd need to turn the screen on to see them. You can actually also set it up to ring for all calls, or some sub-section (as well as repeated calls), but no controls of anything aside from calls. You an also set it to only work when the phone is locked, and not when it's unlocked. But, yeah, it is more of global control than simply disabling lock screen notifications for various apps that you might not care about.

Thanks, you phrased it better than me -- your phone won't alert you of anything, even when you might want it to. Using DND is overkill if the goal is simply to disable lockscreen notifications. (Although if the goal is to still receive lockscreen notifications, but without the screen lighting up, then I guess DND is the only way.)
