There are few things more rage-inducing, more ruinously annoying than seeing the following on your phone:


With a few easy steps you can be red-dot-free:

1. Go to 'notifications' in 'settings'

2. Select 'sort manually'

3. Choose the applications you don't want to get notifications from by swiping 'allow notifications' off

Android phones have a similar process: go to 'settings'/'application manager' and then 'BadgeProvider'. Select 'Force Stop', and then 'Disable' on the applications you don’t want to receive notifications from. Restart your device and you’re good to go.
