This Is How You Hide The Unread Email Number

2,638 unread emails or so? Your iPhone and/or iPad shows you this continuously with this beautiful red badge on the top right corner of the Mail app icon? And slowly but steady you get annoyed by this? Well, this is how you switch it off:

  1. Open up Settings
  2. Go to Notifications
  3. Then choose the respective application, for example: Messages (or Mail)
  4. Tap on the switch right next to Badge App Icon

Within the notification settings for Mail you also need to/can choose between your different accounts. (In case you set up more than one.) Like this:

DONE! And this red thingy will never ever appear again.

This works for every application that shows you this bagde and no matter if iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Happy unbadging 😀
