How to Remove Tips and Other Apps From Notifications on the iPad

The iPad doesn't come with a manual, although you can download one. Instead, it has a Tips app to help you find features you may not have known about. Constantly receiving these notices in the Notification Center can be annoying, though. Here's how to turn them off if you don't need any help.

  1. Open Settings on your iPad.

  5. Turning off notifications will stop Tips from sending you messages, but you can still open the app to learn about new features.

Repeat these steps for any app in the Notification settings to stop them from sending you messages. You can also change the style in which you receive these notifications to ones that won't bother you as much.

Uncheck the options under Alerts to restrict where notifications appear.

  • The Lock Screen option lets you see them without waking up your device.
  • Notification Center makes them visible when you swipe down from the top of the display.
  • Banners appear both when you're in and out of other apps.
  • Banner Style lets you choose between a temporary notification and one that stays on your screen until you dismiss or tap on it.
  • The Options menu helps you organize your notifications. Show Previews adds information to the notification, such as the contents of a text message. Notification Grouping saves clutter in the Notification Center by sorting messages into "stacks" based on the app they come from.

If you have no need of the Tips app or any of the default utilities that came with a new version of iOS, you can also delete them. On the Home screen, tap and hold the app icon until they all start shaking, and then tap the X in the upper-left corner to remove the app from your iPad.
