How to Stop Getting Repeated Message Notifications

Some people find the second notification to be confusing--or irritating.

By default your iPhone is set up to give you a second message notification 2 minutes later, if the first notification was received when your iPhone is locked.

Here's how you can turn off that second notification, or if you like it, set it to give you even more repeated alerts:

Go to Settings > Notifications > Messages > Repeat Alerts (at the bottom) > Set to "Never" to receive only the initial notification.

The default is set to "Once" to get one repeated notification, or you can get more frequent repeated alerts as indicated.
