When Apple announced iOS 12, notification and call protection improvements were shown. First and foremost, notifications are now combined as they are sent from the same app, and users can revoke an app's notification rights directly on the lock screen.
And watchOS 5 is no different. After installing watchOS 5 on your Apple Watch ($ 399 at Apple) you'll get additional controls for the apps that can not stop sending you notifications.
One of the biggest improvements to alerting on watchOS 5 is that alerts from the same app are now grouped together. Instead of listing each alert individually, one card will be displayed per app, and if there are more alerts, you can see the silhouette of more alerts underneath, much like a stack of paper. Tap the top alert to override the alerts and display them individually
Delivery quietly or not at all
When you see your list of notifications, swipe left with a single alert. You can delete this specific warning by tapping on the "X" or by displaying new options by selecting the button with three dots.
Select whether the warnings of the apps should be quietly or not at all. Silent delivery means that the notifications are still displayed in the notification center on your watch. However, you will not receive any notification that there is a new notification.
Selecting Turning off the Apple Watch Suffice it says – stops the app from sending alerts to your wrist.
Do not disturb
Apple also updated Do Not Disturb mode in iOS 12, and one of these new features jumped onto the Apple Watch. Specifically, if you enable DND manually from the Control Center (swipe up from the bottom of the screen when you see your dial), you can set DND to stay turned on until you turn it off, and after one hour in the evening, when you leave your current location.
