Anyone else not being notified about incoming Emergency Alerts?
I’ve been getting emergency alerts for curfews, but I’m not getting alerted that they’ve come. The alerts come to the phone, but the phone doesn’t make a sound, vibrate, or pass the message to my apple watch. I only find out about them if I turn the phone on for something else, or notice an email alert from a different source on my imac.
Emergency Alerts and Public Safety Alerts are enabled in the phone Notifications, and Notifications settings for Phone and Messages are mirrored to the watch. I have no problem getting alerted on the watch for alarms I’ve set in the Alarmed iOS app and the watch icon for ‘connected to the phone’ is green. I’ve rebooted both the watch (4, 6.1.1) and the phone (8, 13.4.1) with no improvement.
It would be kind of nice if Emergency Alerts actually did the Alerting part. Especially once we get real-time earthquake alerts, where seconds matter (next year, with luck).
