  • Hi,


    As far as I know, only if there are updates of the Apps you selected when you screen is locked will show you the notifications.


    For example, I see you have selected Mail, Weather and Messaging as your Lock screen apps (screenshot005kg.png). When your screen is locked, if your mail app receives an email, your lock screen will show you the notification.


    I have also performed a test to verity this.

    Hope this helps.
