iOS 11 Repeat message Alerts setting.

Have you just switched to iOS and purchased your first iPhone? No matter if you chose the iPhone X, 8, 8 Plus or any earlier model there is a high chance that you might be annoyed by a default iOS 11 setting that’s enabled on any new Apple smartphone. Are you encountering alerts that repeat themselves whenever a new message lands on your locked iPhone? In this case the Repeat Alerts option is enabled and you have to turn it off if you don’t want to get pinged twice for the same notification.

The situation can become really annoying! For example, you might be working at your desk and the new message tone is played by your locked iPhone. The display turns on and you get a sneak peek on the preview, or at least on the sender, if you like privacy and prefer to hide the notification previews. However, you might be doing something important and don’t want to address the notification right away. But implacably, 2 minutes later you’re flashed again by another message tone. When you turn your eyesight towards your iOS device, you notice that’s the same message and you’re dealing with a repeat alert.
