Enable or Disable Iphone Push Notifications inside the app


[FYI - Few users have reported that it stopped working on iOS 10]

You can easily enable and disable push notifications in your application by calling registerForRemoteNotificationTypes and unregisterForRemoteNotificationTypes respectively again. I have tried this and it works.


First thing is that you can not enable and disable push notification in inside the app. If you have found some apps which did it than there must be workaround solution.

Like if you want to do Inside the app then use one identifier and send it to server according push notification enable and disable button. So, your server side coding use this identifier and work according to that. Like identifier is say it's enable than your server will send notification otherwise not.

You can check that user set enable or disable Push Notifications using following code.

UIRemoteNotificationType types = [[UIApplication sharedApplication] enabledRemoteNotificationTypes];if (types == UIRemoteNotificationTypeNone)  // Yes it is..

Hope, this will help you..


Pragmatically, it is possible to enable & disable push notification by registering and unregistering push notification.

Enable Push Notification:

if #available(iOS 10.0, *) {   // For iOS 10.0 +   let center  = UNUserNotificationCenter.current()   center.delegate = self   center.requestAuthorization(options: [.sound, .alert, .badge]) { (granted, error) in        if error == nil{           DispatchQueue.main.async(execute: {                 UIApplication.shared.registerForRemoteNotifications()           })         }   }}else{    // Below iOS 10.0    let settings = UIUserNotificationSettings(types: [.sound, .alert, .badge], categories: nil)    UIApplication.shared.registerUserNotificationSettings(settings)    //or    //UIApplication.shared.registerForRemoteNotifications()}

Delegate methods

@available(iOS 10.0, *)func userNotificationCenter(_ center: UNUserNotificationCenter, didReceive response: UNNotificationResponse, withCompletionHandler completionHandler: @escaping () -> Void) {}@available(iOS 10.0, *)func userNotificationCenter(_ center: UNUserNotificationCenter, willPresent notification: UNNotification, withCompletionHandler completionHandler: @escaping (UNNotificationPresentationOptions) -> Void) {}func application(_ application: UIApplication, didRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithDeviceToken deviceToken: Data) {    // .. Receipt of device token}func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFailToRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithError error: Error) {    // handle error}

Disable Push Notification:

UIApplication.shared.unregisterForRemoteNotifications()
