More notifications settings: scheduled overview, previews and sharing

As you can see on the screenshot, in Settings -> Notifications you will find other useful functions for displaying messages and notifications on the iPhone lock screen or during active use of the device. Although these are not new with iOS 16, they should not go unmentioned here. These are the following features:

  • Planned overview: Notifications are only displayed / updated at individually set times so that you are not distracted by them as often
  • Show previews: Notification content, such as a preview of a Messenger message, an iMessage, or the text of an app notification, can never be displayed, only displayed when the device is unlocked, or always
  • Screen sharing: When sharing the screen via Screen Sync or SharePlay, notifications (at the top of the screen) can be turned off as well as turned on
