How To Disable Or Increase The Text Message Alerts On Your IPhone Or IPad

You may have found that those repeated Text Message Alerts on your IPhone/Ipad can be distracting. Or perhaps you work in a noisy environment and need more alerts. Fortunately, Apple has provided a simple, but somewhat hidden, setting that will let you customize the number of times a specific Alert is repeated.

So, let's set it up.
  1. Open your Settings App.
  2. Scroll down to Notifications and select it.
  3. From the Notifications Panel - Select Messages.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom. Select Repeat Alerts.
  5. You should now see several options - ranging from completely disabling repeat alerts to extending the alerts to 10 times after a message has been received. To disable the repeat alert, check the Never option or set the number that works for you.

Keep in mind that repeat Alerts, if engaged, occur approximately every 2 minutes.
