The latest mobile operating systems are now more customisable than ever. iOS and Android (Google) systems have added more features to provide their users with more control over their notifications.
More customisability may seem beneficial to users but there is a downside. With the plethora of different settings now available, it’s possible that SIMS Parent notifications will not appear when the app pushes for it, because notifications may be affected by a whole host of different custom options within each respective operating system.
If you are experiencing issues with notifications not appearing, please check the official Apple and Google support guides below on how notifications work for each type of device.
