Millions of iOS 10 users receive a millions of Notifications every day, but we can also configure these alerts to make them more useful, more productive, and secure. That’s what we’ll look at in today’s report.
What are Notifications?
Notifications first appeared with iOS 5 in October 2011, migrating to Macs the following year.
The system puts new and incoming information at the top of the screen, and also collates these into the Notifications Center panel which you access by swiping down from the status bar. Tap a Notification to open the relevant app, or swipe left and tap Clear to get rid of it.
If you use a 3D Touch-enabled device you can sometimes get other options when you hard press the Notification, such as Snooze. When you receive a Message in Notifications you can respond to that item by hard-pressing the alert, rather than opening the app.
