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.
How to Stop Notifications from the YouTube App on an iPhone
The steps below were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus, in iOS 10.2. These steps will show you how to turn off every notification that is sent by the YouTube app. If you would prefer to still receive certain types of notifications, then you can customize the individual options on the YouTube notifications menu instead of turning them all off. You can also clear your YouTube search history in the app, if you need to.
Step 1: Open the Settings menu.
Step 2: Select the Notifications option.
Step 3: Scroll down and tap the YouTube option.
Step 4: Touch the button to the right of Allow Notifications to turn off all of the notification options for the YouTube app. If you would like to keep some of these instead, then just turn off the options that you don’t want.
