How to fix Huawei P30 Pro notification problems

Huawei's EMUI skin has come a long way in the last three years, but there are areas where it falls short. Push notifications in particular have been an issue for some time now, with EMUI's aggressive memory management to blame. There are times when notifications from a particular app just won't show up, or instances where all background services are disabled if the screen has been off for a few hours. Here's how you can manually fix the issue.

  1. Open Settings from the app drawer or home screen.
  2. Select Apps.
  3. Choose an app to see its options.
