Why Did the Notification Color Change After Updating My Samsung Galaxy S23?

As we said earlier, many people are confused when the notification colors on the Samsung Galaxy S23 suddenly change after an update. You may be wondering about this too. 

When a new update is in production, the developers likely choose the notification colors for a specific purpose. Perhaps they wanted to make them easier to distinguish from other notifications, or maybe they chose brighter colors that would stand out more against different backgrounds. 

However, it seems like this is not something the developers have intended to do because there is no evidence or mentions in the update. So this is very likely a bug that has come along with the update you have installed.

Now that we know why the notification color changed after your Samsung Galaxy S23 update, let’s look at how to fix it.

Fix 01: Clear System UI App Cache

One solution to this issue is to clear the System UI App Cache. This is a quick and easy process that can be done in just a few steps.

To follow the One UI cache, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Then, tap on Apps.
  3. Scroll down and tap on One UI Home.

Fix 02: Clear System Cache

It is a good practice to clean the system cache after doing a software update. If there are any corrupted files or apps on your device causing the issue, clearing the system cache may fix it. 

This can be done by following these steps:

  1. Turn off your device.
  2. Plug a USB cable into the device.
  3. Press and hold the Power key + Volume up keys for a few seconds. When the recovery menu appears, release the keys.
  4. Use the volume keys, highlight the Wipe cache partition, and press the power key.

Fix 02: Change the Color Palette

If you don’t know, One UI has a color palette feature that you can use to customize colors as you wish.

From there, you can simply change the notification color to the color that had before the software update.

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap on Wallpaper and style.
  3. Then, tap on the color palette.
  4. Now select the color palette and change it as you want.

Here is how you can reset all settings of your Samsung Galaxy S23:

  2. Go to General management.
  3. Tap on Reset.
