How to Remove Red Notification Numbers from App Icons on iPhone

iOS reminds you that notifications are unread or not opened by showing the numbers on your home iPhone apps. These numbers are called update badges or smartphone icons within the red bubble. For example, the icon badge for the App Store shows how many applications you need to update. While the same system shows unread messages on the Messages app.

Although notification badges may benefit certain people, some can get upset or stressed by looking at these red bubbles during the day. Some of you may even be anxious about it. So, we got an overview of how you can rid your iPhone home screen of these red number bubbles.


Steps to Remove Red Number Badges from App Icons on iPhone Home Screen

  • Open iPhone settings.
  • Click Notifications and scroll down.
  • Find the app on which you would like to cover the red notification bubbles, i.e. the icon badge.
  • Disable the Badges button on the next screen.


You can also change the app notifications previews, locking screen appearance, notification center, banners, and grouping notifications on the same settings page.

That's it. The app doesn't show you red bubbles on your iPhone for notifications. Notifications are always alerted (so long as you have not removed them), but the app icon badges will not appear, whether it's on the home screen or the IOS 14 app library.
