How to fix "You have a new message" iOS notification

How to fix "You have a new message" iOS notification banner

In the last few days, I get "You have a new message" Gmail notifications on my iPhone instead of the normal notification with the subject and part of the message itself.

It's quite an annoying issue, given the fact that I haven't changed my notifications settings.

Here is how the notification looks:

gmail you have a new message notification

My first thought was that the Gmail app had a bug and that probably they'll fix it, but then I noticed that my Outlook app was acting weird also.

Showing "New Message" "Open outlook to read your message".

The strange thing is that this happens only for my email apps.

You need to restart your iPhone to fix this issue. Who would have thought 🤷‍♂️?
