How to use Notifications on iPhone
Notifications on iPhone provide a quick, convenient way to keep track of what’s going on without having to open each app individually. They can be displayed as a badge on the app icon, as a alert, or as a banner across the top of the screen. You can also choose how and where you would like to be notified, such as through sound or vibration.
Here’s how to use notifications on your iPhone:
Tap Settings > Notifications.
Select an app from the list and then turn on Allow Notifications at the top of the screen.
Choose how you would like to be notified by tapping one of the following options:
- Badge App Icon: A red badge with a number appears on the app icon when there is something new to see.
- Sounds: You’ll hear a sound when there is a new notification.
- Alerts: An alert appears in the middle of the screen when there is something new to see. You can tap it to open the app or clear it.
- Banners: A banner appears across the top of the screen when there is something new to see. You can tap it to open the app or clear it.
You can also tap Settings > Sounds > Text Tone to set a custom sound for text messages or iMessages (if you have an iPhone with iOS 7 or later).
How to use Notification Center on iPhone
Notification Center is where all of your iPhone alerts are stored. If you have an iPhone 6s or later, you can use 3D Touch to access more options for each notification.
To see your notifications, swipe down from the top of the screen.
To clear all the notifications, tap Clear.
If you have an iPhone 6s or later, you can use 3D Touch to clear all notifications at once:
Press firmly on the Notification Center.
Swipe up to Clear All Notifications.
How to use Lock Screen Notifications on iPhone
Assuming you’ve got Notifications enabled for your apps (you are using Do Not Disturb, right?), you can see your recent notifications from the Lock screen by simply swiping down from the top of the screen.
You’ll see a brief summary of each notification—Who it’s from, what it’s about—and you can tap to view the full notification. Tapping Clear will dismiss all notifications.
If you want to see more than just a summary of each notification, you can enable Previews. Go to Settings > Notifications and tap an app. Under Options, tap Show Previews and choose Always, When Unlocked, or Never.
