How to hide notifications in StandBy mode in iOS 17

StandBy mode in iOS 17 allows you to use your iPhone as a smart display while it charges in landscape mode. Alongside displaying the time, weather conditions, photos, and other information, the StandBy mode also shows notifications.

Notification previews in StandBy take up your iPhone’s entire screen. This is particularly handy when your iPhone is further away, like on your nightstand or desk. When a notification arrives, it starts as a small preview in the middle of the screen and expands to fill the entire screen, making it easier to read from a distance.

In this guide, we’ll teach you how to customize notification previews as well as how to hide notifications in StandBy mode for added privacy.

Controlling notification previews
To enable “Show Preview on Tap Only”:

Launch Settings from the Home screen of your iPhone.
Scroll down and tap on StandBy.

At the bottom of the screen, you’ll find the Show Preview on Tap Only toggle. Toggle it on if you want to see notification previews only when you tap the initial notification.

Note that if the toggle is not visible, you will first need to toggle Show Notifications on.

To always show notification previews:

Follow the same steps as above to navigate to the Show Preview on Tap Only toggle.
Toggle it off if you want to see notification previews automatically.

How to turn off notifications completely in StandBy mode
If you want an extra layer of privacy when using StandBy or if you just don’t want your screen cluttered with notifications, here’s how to turn them off:

Launch Settings from the Home screen of your iPhone.
Scroll down and select StandBy.
In the Notifications section, you’ll find the Show Notifications toggle.

Toggle it off to stop receiving notifications in StandBy mode.
Note that disabling notifications in StandBy mode won’t silence your iPhone entirely. You will still receive them once you exit StandBy mode.
