Sometimes software designers think differently than normal people. You might have noticed this when seeing popular apps are designed in a poor manner. This is not generally the case with the iOS mobile operating system on Apple’s iPhone. But still there are some settings which you may need to change to work as normal. One such settings is receiving two times alerts when you receive SMS text messages from Messages app. In this short article, let us explain how to disable getting two time messages alerts in iPhone.

Two Time Alerts
Whenever you receive a message in iPhone, you will get a notification with an alert sound. Assuming you have not disabled notifications or not enabled do not disturb mode. After few minutes, again you will receive the message alert one more time.
When you check the lock screen, you will simply see the same message which you might have noticed two minutes back. If you wonder this is your iPhone’s problem, no, it’s not. The default iPhone settings will remind a message alert notifications two times. The idea may be good to remind you one more time if you have missed the first original alert. But, it makes annoying as every message will be notified two times instead of one time.
Disable Two Times Message Notifications Alert
The message notifications setting in iPhone by default was set as alerting one more time after the messages are received. You simply need to disable the notifications setting by following the below instructions:
- Tap on “Settings” app on your iPhone.
- Go to “Notifications” option.
- You will see a list of apps installed on your iPhone under “Notification Style” section. Scroll down and find “Messages” app.
- Again scroll down and tap on the “Repeat Alerts” option. By default this option is set as “Once” in iOS.
- On the next screen, tap on “Never” option.
Hereafter, when you receive a message iPhone will remind only the first time and never repeat the reminder after two minutes.
