Essential Apple User Magazine|January 2022
The Notification Centre in iOS 15 has had a great visual redesign. Now, when you get notifications from people, such as incoming messages, their photo is displayed next to the notification. Notifications from apps have bigger icons showing which app sent them, and non-urgent notifications can be collated and delivered when you’re not as busy. Read on to find out how to organise and use your notifications.

Using the Notification Centre

1 To access the Notification Centre, swipe your finger down from the top of the screen. Notifications are arranged in stacks according to the app that sent them. Tap one of these stacks to open it and see its on-screen notifications.

2 To clear a single notification, swipe it left and tap the Clear button. To delete all notifications received from a given app, tap the X next to the app name and then the Clear button that replaces it. All those notifications go.
