Double notifications on iPhone in iOS 17

Getting duplicate notifications on iPhone since iOS 17 update? Some apps are issuing multiple identical notifications, ruining your experience and productivity? Some alerts are duplicate, but other occur 3x, 4-times and even more?

Duplicate Notifications iOS 17 Issue?

This problem has been reported by Becky (iOS 17.0.3):

“Getting duplicate, triple even quadruple notifications for some apps. Is anyone else experiencing it?”

We couldn’t replicate this unexpected behavior bun have found similar complaints on Reddit (1, 2 and 3):

“Instagram just sent me 8 notifications. my Blink camera app is doing the same. I have about 8 other apps doing it too. So annoying !!!”

After reading all the reports it appears that this glitch is affecting multiple apps and it’s triggered randomly. Both stock and third-party apps can send duplicate notifications. Affected software includes: News, Mail, Instagram, ESPN, Facebook Messenger, LinkedIn, Telegram, Outlook, Blink, Twitch and others.

It seems that affected apps won’t sent double, triple or quadruple notifications every time. For example, Facebook does it for events. Are you experiencing the same? Share your feedback in the comments and help us pick up the pattern!
