iPhone users on iOS 14 or later are complaining about not getting notifications for texts, iMessages, and even WhatsApp messages in some cases. The problem doesn’t seem to be with a single application or a particular generation of iPhone models. Complaints posted by the affected users on online platforms, including on the Apple Community forums, suggest that the notification issues are impacting almost all iPhone models compatible with iOS 14.
Several users have complained on Apple Community forums that they aren’t getting notifications for new text messages and iMessages after updating their iPhones to iOS 14. The issue doesn’t seem to be affecting the delivery of new messages, but only notifications. Both pop-up notifications and the red badge that keeps a count of the unread messages seem to be failing for some users, reported The Verge.
The glitch is apparently not just limited to text messages or iMessages as some users are not even getting notifications for third-party apps including WhatsApp and Signal. In a few cases, it is even affecting voice call alerts.
“I am now missing calls and notifications from other apps as well,” one of the affected users wrote on Apple Community forums.
