Blynk Notifications and Emal aren't working, Arduio Uno and IOS phone

I’m using the Push Notification Widget on my Iphone 7, and I was wondering if I could receive some help as I am having a lot of trouble with it. No matter what code or hardware I try, Blynk.notify does not send notifications to my phone. It is read in my Arduino code, but no notification is sent. (I know it is read because the lines of code before are after it are being done). I have tried many different codes, devices, deleting the widget, etc. The email widget ( does not work as well (I have used many other widgets and I only seem to have a problem with these two). This is an example of a code I used- I wired my button to GRND and digital pjn 2. Any suggestions?

#define BLYNK_PRINT Serial
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
SoftwareSerial SwSerial(10, 11); // RX, TX
#include <BlynkSimpleSerialBLE.h>
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
char auth[] = "xxxxxxxxxx";
SoftwareSerial SerialBLE(10, 11); // RX, TX
void notifyOnButtonPress()
  int isButtonPressed = !digitalRead(2);
  if (isButtonPressed) {
    Serial.println("Button is pressed.");// This works 
    Blynk.notify("Yaaay... button is pressed!"); // never is received on Iphone 

void setup()
  // Debug console

  Blynk.begin(SerialBLE, auth);

  Serial.println("Waiting for connections...");// this works 

  // Setup notification button on pin 2
  pinMode(2, INPUT_PULLUP);// i have wired my button as pullup 
  // Attach pin 2 interrupt to our handler
  attachInterrupt(digitalPinToInterrupt(2), notifyOnButtonPress, CHANGE);

void loop()

What iOS version do you have?
Is notification widget in the same project where your device is?

I have IOS 11.3 (the latest one). Yes, the notification widget is in the same project where my device is.

Please note that sending notifications and emails from the device connected over BLE is not supported.

What else can I use that will work for notifications?
