Your iPhone has a few different ways that it can alert you to new emails. But if you have multiple email accounts on your device that are all receiving a high number of emails, these notifications can quickly become overwhelming. This can lead you to look for a way to shut off those notifications and give yourself a little peace.
However, you might have a work email account on your phone, or some other similarly important account, for which you would prefer to keep the notifications active. Fortunately this is something that you can do on your iPhone 7. Our guide below will show you how to turn off the notifications for just one of your email accounts while leaving the notifications for other email accounts turned on.
