Understand how iPhone notifications work and use them to your advantage in this free lesson.
Notifications alert you to many things on your iPhone, including incoming messages, new emails, and calendar events. Notifications work slightly differently for each app, but they're easy to customize. In this lesson, we'll show you how to modify the Notification Center and choose which apps will appear there.
The Notification Center keeps all of your notifications in one place. Simply swipe down from the top of the screen to open it at any time, even from the lock screen.
You'll notice that the Notification Center has three different views, which you can select at the top:
Notifications will remain in the Notification Center until they are dismissed, or cleared. To clear a notification, tap the X, then press Clear.
Notifications cannot be cleared from the Today view.
