Shortly after installing the new Gmail app for my iPhone, my phone started vibrating in my pocket for an unknown reason. When I looked at it, the screen was blank with no apparent reason for why it was vibrating. I quickly tracked the mysterious notifications to the Gmail App. It turns out it notifies you each time a new email arrives. So if you’re like me and want to disable the notifications, here’s how you do it.
Disable Notifications for the iOS Gmail App
Tap Settings on your iOS device.
Scroll down until you find Gmail. Tap it to configure its notifications and settings.
Turn off Sounds, and if you want to disable the number of Gmail messages waiting for you, you can disable that also under the Badge App Icon setting here.
The notifications section on iOS is where you control all the settings for most of the apps on your iDevice. It’s the first place to look if you’re looking to get rid of or adjust beeps and vibrations coming from your iOS devices.
