Tips: remove the notification badges from the app icons.
We previously told you how to remove the text labels for app icons on your iPhone’s home screen. However, for some reason you may also want to hide the red notification badges for apps. For example, the mail app icon may constantly show that you have a thousand unread emails, as you rarely read them and just ignore them. If keep ignoring the badges, however, your start screen may become really annoying for the eyes.
That’s why it may be a good idea to stop the device from displaying the notification badges, especially if they grow to an enormous number. By following the steps in this article you can easily hide those banners for every app that annoys you:
Go to Settings → Notifications
Tap on the app you want
Disable the option ‘Badge App Icon’
Done, you’ve just disabled the notification badge for that app.
