Apps that take advantage of your enabling notifications to send you ads.

Fuck ‘em.

Should be illegal.

Even worse: notifications and ads in the Settings app from Apple trying to sell subscriptions to Apple TV, Apple Music, and their other ~services~.

If you go deep enough into the app settings (sometimes three or four layers) you can turn off “promotional” notifications, but not from the Apple settings

Uber did the same thing a few days ago to me. I have all ad notifications turned off inside the app, but it still sends some Uber+/Uber Gold ad to my lock screen. I laughed when I disabled notifications on the device, because I'm going to wonder why I'm not getting ride notifications in the future. But fuck them completely.

I don't believe that works for Uber, r2 - so annoying.

Why would you allow any type of notification except for emergency (fire, hurricane, etc.)? Turn them all off.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
