How to Turn Off Calendar Notifications on an iPhone 7

The digital calendar is a great feature that has gained more and more acceptance as a larger percentage of the population is using smartphones. You can put all of your appointments and tasks into your calendar, then let the app tell you where you need to go, and what you need to do.

However, if you have a very busy schedule, then these notifications might become excessive. If you are constantly checking your calendar anyway, then they might even be redundant. Fortunately you have the ability to stop the notifications from the calendar app completely. Our tutorial below will show you how to do this.
