“Recently, I got a message and it appears on my lock screen, but if I don’t open it and leave it to deal with later, it has disappeared from my lock screen when I try to read it afterwards. Has anyone else experienced the same issue as me, by the way, I’m using an iPhone 8 running iOS 11.0.2”

Since iOS 11 release, we have been asked a lot about the iOS 11 notification alerts is missing from lock screen issue. If you have the same experience as what we described above, then the following guide might be helpful for you to fix notification missing from lock screen on your iOS 11.1/11.0.3/11.0.2 iPhone/iPad/iPod touch.

1. Check the Notification Settings

It is possible to have notifications disappearing from the lock screen if the notification settings are incorrect. To ensure you can see everything you want, the first thing you need to do when you have this issue is head to Settings>>Notifications. The Notifications screen displays a list of all your apps that can send you notifications.

Then simply scroll down the list and confirm that the Allow Notifications button is on for that app. On the app’s page of Notifications preferences, check that alerts are enabled on the lock screen. To make sure you see alerts when you are using the phone, go to Show Previews, and tick the Always(default) option.

And don’t forget to enable the type of notification as Persistent.
