Notifications on Apple iOS Devices

Apple iPhones support four different types of notifications: Lock Screen, Notification Center, Banner, and Badges. You can enable and disable notifications and customize which types you want to receive from your iPhone's Settings App by navigating to Notifications > Time To Pet:

Lock Screen Notifications

Lock screen notifications appear on your phone's lock screen. You can view these notifications by picking up your phone or tapping on the screen.

With Lock Screen notifications, you can:

  • Tap a single notification to open the Time To Pet App and bring you to the relevant screen.
  • Tap a group of notifications to view all recent notifications from Time To Pet. 
  • Swipe left on a notification to manage alerts for Time To Pet or to clear the notification.

Notification Center

You can open the Notification Center on your iPhone by swiping down from the top center edge of the screen when your phone is unlocked or by swiping up from the center of the screen when the phone is locked.


When your phone is unlocked, your Time To Pet notifications will appear as a banner at the top of your screen. Depending on your iPhone settings, these notifications may disappear automatically, or you may need to swipe them away manually.


When Badge notifications are enabled, the Time To Pet App will show a badge with a count of how many unread notifications are waiting for you to review.
