    When I am wearing my AW, I still get all notifications on my iPhone. Is this the norm? How do I enable only AW notifications?

    Are you physically using the phone at the time when then notifications come in?

    No. Screen is off. In my pocket or just sitting on my desk, not in use.

    I sometimes have this. It's frustrating. I tend to turn off the Watch and iPhone and back on. Then pray.

    Are you running iOS 9.3 beta by any chance? I am, and noticed this since the latest build, I've logged a bug report anyway.

    Yeah I reckon the latest build broke something, log a bug report so they know it's not just a small number of users affected :)

    Because you are running beta software, you have to assume that the beta caused it.

    Can every thread discussing a problem with beta software include "Beta" in the title? Please?

    Try a restore on both devices.

    Then, next step is Apple Store.

    It seems another user who does not use beta is having the same issue as I am. I have no confirmation from Apple that this issue is a beta issue.

    As I mentioned above your post, being that he is not on beta software, he needs to restore both devices. If that doesn't solve the issue, then he should go to an Apple Store.

    For people with beta software, there is nothing Apple will do for you, as you are on beta software, and will advise you to wait for final release.

    Now I understand...thank you for clarifying it. I really like night shift but this issue drives me crazy. Not sure what I'm going to do.

    With today's beta seed, this is now fixed! For future, I will be sure to include the Beta tag appropriately.

    I have had it happen to me before and it was always cured by unpairing and repairing. I wish Apple would have given us more choices and allowed the phone to make the notifications if the user wanted it that way.

    No it does not. There is no way to have my iPhone act as though I am not wearing my AW.

    I still don't understand why anyone would want the watch to be the second notifier (or third or fourth, if we include tablets and laptops) when it's physically closer than any other device.

    So, on the settings screen I posted, turning off alerts and sounds and haptics doesn't do the trick?

    I was not asking you to understand. I was telling you that there is no way to make my phone ignore that I am wearing the watch when it comes to notifications.

    I don't feel so bad about not understanding the non-understandable, then.
