Clearer no­ti­fi­ca­tions

Mac|Life - - FEATURE -

>>> Ap­ple has re­vamped the way no­ti­fi­ca­tions are pre­sented in iOS 11, which should help if you’ve ever found your­self dis­ori­ented by the dif­fer­ences in their ar­range­ment be­tween No­ti­fi­ca­tion Cen­ter and the Lock screen.

When your de­vice is un­locked and you swipe down from the top of the screen to open No­ti­fi­ca­tion Cen­ter, at first you’ll see only re­cent, unat­tended items – just like on the Lock screen. How­ever, by then swip­ing up you’ll re­veal a his­tory of items go­ing back chrono­log­i­cally through time.

Though this sounds like a small change, it brings a greater sense of con­ti­nu­ity re­gard­less of whether you’re check­ing no­ti­fi­ca­tions af­ter pluck­ing your iPhone from a pocket, or tak­ing a few min­utes out of do­ing some­thing else on your phone to deal with items that you’ve ig­nored for a while.
