2. Check Internet Connectivity on Your Phone

First, ensure you have enabled the Cellular data on your iPhone. Also, check that flight mode is not enabled on the device; otherwise, you will see new notifications from any app, including Facebook.

Make sure to check other apps that require internet connectivity to run. Check if you are receiving notifications from other apps and if the web pages are loading or not.

If you see a total internet blackout on your iPhone for all the installed apps then you can try contacting your ISP to know about the connectivity issue and request to resolve the same.

There may be some maintenance work going on at the ISP for which they may have temporarily disabled the network connectivity.

3. Disable Do Not Disturb on Your iPhone

If you have enabled Do Not Disturb on your iPhone for a particular period, you may not see notifications from Facebook or other applications during that time.

To start getting notifications you need to disable do not disturb. If you are running iOS 15 on your iPhone, Do Not Disturb is now present under the option Focus.

4. Update Facebook App

Some minor bugs in an older build of Facebook may be causing the nuisance and not letting in any new notifications. Users often forget to update their apps on time.

So, check if any new update is available for Facebook on the App Store and then install the same.

  1. Open the App Store app
  2. Tap on the profile pic in the top right corner
  3. Then you will see the list of apps that are waiting to be updated to the latest build
  4. If Facebook is there in the list simply tap on the update button to install the latest version of Facebook on the iPhone.
  5. After installing it, check if you are getting notifications or not.

Additionally, you may also uninstall and reinstall Facebook on your iPhone. Your account will not be affected in any way by this.

By connected devices, I mean if you have an Apple Watch connected to your iPhone, chances are that the notifications are getting diverted to the Apple Watch instead of appearing on your iPhone. This happens when your iPhone is locked.

You can change this behavior by changing the Apple Watch’s notification settings.
