How to Turn Off YouTube Notifications on an iPhone 7

YouTube has such a massive library of videos that it can often be difficult to find a particular channel or content creator that you like.

It can be even tougher to stay aware of new content that they post, so YouTube offers a subscription option where you subscribe to a channel, and their videos become a lot easier to find.

One element of subscriptions is that you can receive notifications when that channel posts a new video.

If you subscribe to a lot of channels, or if you subscribe to someone that is particularly active, you might find that you are receiving a lot of notifications from the YouTube app.

Our guide below will show you how to turn off all of the notifications that can be sent by the app on your iPhone.
