CarPlay serves as a great system that turns your car’s built-in display into a controller for your iPhone. CarPlay has been available for iOS users for years and it has received positive reviews from users and experts. Basically, with CarPlay, you can make calls, send and receive messages, listen to music and more in your car.
However, one of the most annoying things with CarPlay is that a number of apps automatically display their notifications on your CarPlay display when you connects it with your iPhone. For some users, this may be useful for keeping with important notifications, but others, on the other hand, find this feature annoying. If you happen to sit in the latter group, you can easily disable app notifications in Apple CarPlay.
Steps to disable app notifications in Apple CarPlay
Step one: The first thing you need to do is to launch the Settings app from your home screen and head to Notifications to proceed
Step two: Once you are done, all you have to do is to find and select the app for which you wish to disable CarPlay notifications
Step three: When it is done, you will notice a toggle called “Show in CarPlay”. All you have to do now is to tap on this toggle next to it to stop receiving notifications from the app in CarPlay
Once you are done, from now on, you will never see notifications from that app, while you still receive notifications from other apps on your iPhone
Note that some apps allow you to choose type of notifications you wish to receive on your CarPlay and you now only receive notifications from smaller range of apps such as Calendar, Messages, Reminders, FaceTime and Phone app. CarPlay does not support third-party apps at the moment, so don’t waste your time.
