Many of iPhone users complained that Text Notifications Not Working on their iPhone or iPad after upgrading to iOS 12. I have also faced this problem. But now I fixed it. Here I am going to tell you how to Fix iPhone Text Notifications not working on their iPhone in iOS 12.

- Make sure that “Do Not Disturb” is disabled.
Solution 3: Check “Allow Notifications”
- Launch Settings ->Notifications->Messages.
- Tap “Messages” and make sure that “Allow Notification” is enabled for massages.
There you can see Badge App Icon, Show on Lock Screen, Show in History, Show as Banners. These options should be enabled.

This process will erase all data from your mobile. So Before doing it take a backup your iPad or iPhone. After finishing this restore everything.

Then you will be asked to enter Apple ID password. Enter it. The reset process will take 1 or 2 minutes.
