How to Block Shortcuts Notification When Automation is Running on iPhone

There are many good shortcuts you can launch on your iPhone, but on iOS 13 and iOS 14, you will receive a notification whenever you try to launch an automation. The shortcut should appear to be fluid during the operation, and when you get a banner warning every time you flip it, things are not so smooth. But there are ways to block them.

To better illustrate the problem, let’s take a look at a dynamic wallpaper shortcut that automatically changes the wallpaper on the iPhone home screen and lock screen based on a user-defined action or trigger. For example, in the keyboard shortcuts guide, I set the wallpaper to dynamically change based on the time of the current location, which is triggered when a specific application is opened.

By default, you will receive a banner notification if shortcut automation is running on your iOS device. In general, these notifications seem redundant because we know what we have configured in shortcut automation. Fortunately, it can be removed.

You might think this is easy. You just need to go to notification settings and turn off banner notifications in the shortcut app. Unfortunately, the shortcut app doesn’t appear in the notification settings. These settings need to be changed elsewhere.

Overview

This automation is really good and one of my favorites, but it gets spoiled by the banner notifications that pop up every time an installed app opens and the wallpaper refreshes in the background. Without notifications, you might not know the wallpaper is changing, but if you are familiar with this fact, notifications can get annoying very quickly.

If you do not want these types of alerts to appear on your screen, you need to turn off notifications for shortcut apps. However, Apple has made it harder since iOS 13. In iOS 12, you can turn it off by going to Settings -> Notifications -> Shortcuts or Settings -> Shortcuts -> Notifications. When I try to do this on iOS 13 or iOS 14, I cannot find the notification settings for the shortcut.

Screen Time settings

To do this, you need to use the Screen Time Settings. Open all items in the See All Activity below the daily average.

Now scroll down to the Notifications area and click on Show More until you see the links or Shortcuts. There must be at least one notification at the time selected in Link Automation. Otherwise, check the other deadlines until you find them.

You need to open this shortcut. If you can’t, wait for everything to load and the arrow to the right of the item. This may take some time depending on the use of the device.

Click on it and you will find the general notification settings you were looking for in the general notification settings. Here you can turn off all notifications for shortcut apps.

Once you restart your iPhone or user interface, you will need to reset the settings that you want to continue.

Workaround for disable the notifications

Open the Settings app, go to Screen Time, and click See All Activity under Daily Average. If Screen Time is off, first tap Turn Screen Time on, but you’ll have to wait a few hours or a day for Screen Time to display enough data you want. If this is your first time opening Screen Time, you should click Continue on the splash screen and let the device turn on.

Then scroll down to the Notifications section at the bottom and look for Shortcuts, then tap on it. If it’s not at the top of the list, you may need to select Show More. If it cannot be selected or is not listed, use the arrow buttons at the top of the screen to select a different day or week depending on your current view.

Now turn off the Allow Notifications switch at the top and exit the settings. Turning off notifications for shortcuts does not display the old way notification settings in the Settings app. This is different from setting up a new default web browser or mail app on iOS 14.

The negative side of shortcuts without notifications

So I turned off the shortcut warning. large. However, like almost everything, this has some disadvantages. First, the obvious downside is that you don’t get shortcut or automation notifications that you really want or need. For example, as in the example above with dynamic wallpaper, it is not clear when all the automations will be triggered, so you might not even know what caused it without warning.

Secondly, it doesn’t disable banner notifications that appear in iOS 14.3 and up for custom app icon shortcuts. So, if you changed all app icons to custom icons on your home screen, you will still see the name of the shortcut with a check mark at the top of the screen when you open one of those apps. (This is a new feature and may change in the future).

Third, re-enabling shortcut notifications is tricky, but it’s not all that hard. Turning off notification settings for shortcuts doesn’t magically appear in settings, so how would you like to turn them back on?

Using the same process above, the shortcut will not appear in the selectable list only if the shortcut warning is disabled. However, you must go back in time until you find the shortcut somewhere on the list. This is much more complicated and time consuming than it sounds. An easier way to get it back is to add a Show Notifications action to the shortcut, select Update Notification Settings, and then turn Allow Notifications back on.

Disabling notifications for shortcuts might not be something you can do because it breaks the shortcuts that these alerts are supposed to see, and so Apple should make things easier for us. In an ideal environment, you would be able to toggle all alerts related to that shortcut by adding a Show Notifications option to the ellipsis (•••) menu for each shortcut. Or most of it happens in automation, so the option in setting up automation is better.

If you have enabled notifications in the Show Notifications action in the shortcut, you will see the Notifications toggle under access to Allow [shortcut name] in the ellipsis (•••) menu, but it is not disabled, that reminder anything to do it.

How to Unlock Jean in Genshin Impact

Do you like the Jean character in the Genshin Impact game? If so, you may want to have this character. But, the problem is that you may not know how to unlock this character in the game. And here, we inform you about how to unlock Jean and other information that you need related to this character.

How to Obtain Jean in Genshin Impact?

Jean can be obtained through Wishes. What are wishes? It is the gacha system in the game. If you want to buy Wishes, you will need Fates. In the Wish area of the beginner, the first 10 Wishes are given for free. Then, 10 Wishes will cost around 8 Acquaint Fates which in turn costs 1,280 Primogems. And for the rest of the areas, a single Wish will cost one Intertwined Fate. The price accounts for 160 Primogems in Genshin Impact.

Jean in Genshin Impact

According to Screenrant, the best method that you can use to get 5 star characters in Genshin Impact is by investing Acquaint or Intertwined Fates on wish banners. As you know that Jean is a 5-star character. So, you may do it to get this character. Each banner has its own stats on the chance of the player rolling a specific 5 star character. The problem is that pulling a 5 star character is very rare as most have less than a 1% chance to be pulled during each wish. There are two methods that you are able to do to earn Acquaint and Intertwined fates. The first method is by completing the story missions and raising your Adventure Rank. Every time you level up, you will get more items that you are able to use on pulls. The second method is spending money. This is the primary method and it may be the only way you are able to pull a 5 star hero.

Well, when players are able to go into it with the free to play mentality, the statistics are stacked to them because the paid players are more likely to pull for a 5-star hero. It is possible that free to play players will never get a 5 star hero except they are very lucky. From someone’s experience, it took about 10 pulls which is about $100 USD to be able to pull for Jean which is one of the 5 star characters.

Methods to Get Razor in Genshin Impact

According to Game Revolution, if you want to unlock Razor in the Genshin Impact game, the thing that you have to do is to get him as a random gacha pull. The game has randomized loot boxes and the only way that you are able to do to unlock Razor is by getting lucky. Razor pull odds are low and to be able to unlock the wolf boy can take a significant amount of time. The Razor party member has a 4 star rarity tanking and the average pull rate for 4 star items is 5.1%. The chance to be able to pull a specific item from that rarity pool is much lower. The pity system of Genshin Impact guarantees players a 4 star item after 10 consecutive gacha pulls without getting one which can speed things up slightly. So, to be able to unlock Razor in this game, it will require most users to perform a lot of gacha pulls.

However, according to Gamer Tweak, Razor is now available through the Paimon’s Deals section of the Shop. So, if you pull a wish in Genshin Impact, you will be given a reward in the form of currencies named Masterless Starglitter or Stardust. If you use those currencies, you are able to get items and it includes Razor from Paimon. To be able to get Razor in the game, you have to shell out 34 Masterless Starglitter. It is important for you to know that he will only be available until the server refreshes later. If you miss this chance, you do not have to be sad because it is possible that he will return at some point in the times to come.

What are The Best Stats for Razor?

You may want to focus on ATK and ATK% with Razor. As we know that the abilities of Razor scale with ATK. So, if you pump up these stats, it will give you a noticeable DPS increase. The Prototype Aminue and Wolf’s Gravestone claymores have Base ATK and ATK. So, you have to make sure to use one of these weapons.

A popular option for the Electro DMG buffs is the Thundering Fury set. The two-piece has an Electro DMG bonus of 15%. The four-piece can increase the damage which is caused by electro-charge, overload, and superconduct by 40%. If the elemental effects are triggered, it can decrease elemental skill cooldowns by one second, once every 0.8 seconds.

On a few social media platforms, especially on online services forums, there are some people who ask the questions “Should I upgrade iPhone 11 Pro to iPhone 12 Pro?”. Of course, this can be  a parameter of how confused the iPhone users are about this.

They actually want to upgrade your iPhone to the latest one but on the other side, they’re also worried about the effect which will happen if they upgrade their phone. And maybe, the iPhone 12 Pro definitely has the specification not too far with iPhone 11 Pro. Of course if the specifications are not too far away, then it would be a waste of time to upgrade.

Here’s the Answer!

Before you decide to upgrade your iPhone 11 Pro to iPhone 12 Pro at least you need to look at the comparison of the specification between iPhone 12 Pro vs iPhone 11 Pro that we will show below!

Should I Upgrade to iPhone 12 Pro from 11 Pro

iPhone 12 Pro vs iPhone 11 Pro

This year, is it better to buy iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro? The answer actually depends on the user’s needs. Through this comparison below, we hope that you will find out which phone is the most suitable for you between the two devices.

Apple iPhone 12 Pro Apple iPhone 11 Pro

Additional features 5G, optional dual SIM, optional eSIM, MagSafe, IP68 waterproof IP68 waterproof, optional dual SIM, optional eSIM

Both iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro actually have a super-premium design but we think that iPhone 11 Pro is more premium. iPhone 11 Pro features a stainless steel frame instead of the aluminium frame. Moreover, it doesn’t have flat borders but it is sturdier.

Both have resolutions superior to full HD+, Super Retina XDR OLED technology, Dolby Vision, HRD10 certification, wide color gamut and True Tone. The hardware and performance are the major advantages of Apple iPhone 12 over iPhone 11 Pro.

Otherwise, with iPhone 11 Pro, you can get more internal storage up to 512 GB of original storage, that’s the only advantage. The iPhone 11 Pro is a more attractive phone for photography for one reason, It offers an additional third telephoto sensor with 2x optical zoom. The iPhone 12 only has two sensors on the back side. The main sensor and ultrawide lens however do not have a telephoto sensor.

From the list of the two iPhone series above, you at least can decide whether you have to upgrade your iPhone 11 Pro to iPhone 12 Pro or not. If you do not still have a strong consideration, we recommend you don’t upgrade your iPhone 11 Pro to iPhone 12 Pro right now. Why? Let’s find out the answer!

If you bought your iPhone in the last year, there is no strong reason to upgrade to the iPhone 12 lineup. Apple iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro are supported by the A13 Bionic processors, battery life of about 10 hours for streaming videos and movies, as well as the camera resolution that is.

The Apple iPhone 12 does have a significant improvement. However, for those of you who have an iPhone 11 or 11 Pro, you can delay buying an iPhone 12 for at least a year. If you are a photographer or videographer who relies on smartphones and feels like you have to have a new and capable device, the iPhone 12 Pro Max deserves to be an option.

How for the other iPhone series users?

  • For iPhone XS or XR users

If you have an iPhone XS or iPhone XR, you shouldn’t rush to upgrade. Of course, the iPhone 12 Pro offers 5G connectivity and a number of other new features. However, the 2018 iPhones are still powerful enough to achieve whatever you want.

The Apple iPhone 12 has the same processor as the iPhone 12 Pro, without many high-end camera features. Even so, you can still get improved image quality from your iPhone XS or XR now.

  • For iPhone X users

Apple iPhone X brought significant improvements when it was first released. This is the first smartphone from Apple with FaceID, as well as the first iPhone with an OLED display.

The Apple iPhone X still feels quite updated right now. So for iPhone X users, you can delay one more year and then upgrade.

However, if your iPhone X is starting to feel out of date, you can choose iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 mini. Both will give you 5G support and a much faster processor. Meanwhile, the iPhone 12 Pro is more suitable for photography and videography enthusiasts.

  • For iPhone 8 users

The Apple iPhone 8 is Apple’s latest model with TouchID, and it has a relatively small 4.7-inch screen. Despite getting the iOS 14 update recently, there’s a chance the iPhone 8 won’t get iOS 15.

Aside from the matter of future software updates, there are several other reasons to consider upgrading to the latest iPhone lineup

The iPhone 8’s A11 Bionic processor and modem were good at the time, but in 2020, they both feel a little sluggish. The 12MP camera is also starting to feel out of date, especially in low light conditions.

However, you can still use the iPhone 8 for another year, especially if you bought it in the last 12 months or recently replaced the battery. If you’re looking to upgrade now, the iPhone 12 Mini is a great and affordable option.
