Unable to turn on notifications (iOS)

I have a ring doorbell plus one chime. Both recently stopped working.

I played around with some settings in the phone app, and the chime seems to be working again. However, I cannot get notifications on my iPhone or iPad to work.

Everything shows as connected in the Ring apps. I can live view and see previous events. The doorbell will ring outside and now will again ring the chime.

When I attempt to turn Ring alerts or Motion alerts “on” in the Ring app, I get a notice that Notifications are “disabled.” When I go to “settings” everything is still turned on. Allow Notifications, Sounds, Badges, Microphone, Background App Refresh, Cellular Data… all activated. The Ring app will still not let me turn on any alerts.

I have tried turning notifications off then on again. No help.

Any ideas?

Hi @jrm ! Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Ring app? If not, can you please try that and let us know if that seems to help? Thank you!


I tried everything but that.

Delete then reinstall worked. Thanks!


I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app. I’m still not getting notifications.

Hi, I actually got it working again. I had to completely reinstall the ring doorbell. Thank you so much ?

It stopped working again! Uh! The video goes to my phone, but no notifications. I had it working for a day.

Ok, it’s working again now. Thank you. Just so you know, there’s no accept button next to the reply button. Don’t see it anywhere.
