  2. Scroll down and tap App Store;

  3. Scroll down and turn off the function under ‘Ratings and reviews’.

2. Turn off the ‘sent from my iPhone’ notification

Anyone who has ever sent an email from their iPhone (or iPad) has come across this message. At the bottom of the email is then ‘Sent from my iPhone’ or ‘Sent from my iPad’. The recipient will also see this message in the email.

It does become irritating when greedy children’s hands or your friends uninvitedly ‘play’ with the settings in the control panel or message center. You have quite a lot of settings that you can access while your iPhone is locked. To avoid irritations, simply disable both options. You do this in the following way.

  • Open ‘Settings’;
  • Scroll down and choose ‘Face ID and access code’;
  • Enter your code and scroll down;
  • Under ‘Access when locked’, turn off the options for ‘Notification center’ and ‘Control panel’.

As you can see, there are more options that you can disable here, but by blocking the control panel and the message center you already remove a lot of setting options.

Now all we’re missing is an easy way to remove your camera and flashlight from your lock screen, without having to use Screen Time…
