Customizing the Notification Center

It's easy to customize the Notification Center to suit your needs. For example, you can turn certain views on and off and choose which apps to include in the Notification Center. You can also customize other notifications for individual apps, like sounds and badges.

To customize the Notification Center:

  1. Tap the Settings icon on your Home screen.
  2. Tap Notifications.
  3. From here, you can customize which apps will appear in the Notification Center. Tap the app you'd like to customize. In our example, we'll choose Instagram.
  4. From here, you can deselect Show in Notification Center to choose whether you'd like notifications from this app to appear in the Notification Center.
  5. This app's notifications will no longer appear in the Notification Center. There are several other available options, which are covered in the interactive below.
