iOS 11 brings another update to the Lock screen and Notification Center. Apple has decided to merge Lock screen and Notification Center into a single entity called the Cover Sheet.
From time to time, willingly or unwillingly, I engage in iOS vs Android debates. They’re quite fun and while I always have legit arguments, there are some points where I just concede (as any sensible person would). Notification Center is one of those things.
iOS 10 is the 1oth major version of iOS. Which means it only took us 9 years to get here. But finally, we have a way to clear all notifications with just 1 tap. Dreams do come true.
I have to say, one of the biggest changes in iOS 10 is staring you right at your face the minute you pick up your iPhone or iPad. The lock screen experience has been completely rethought. Almost everything on the screen is new (even the timestamp is bolder). There’s just so much to talk about. So let’s get to it.
While the iPhone is not a customizable as an Android Phone, it does make sure to include many features that will make it easier to use for folks with disabilities. Accessibility can be found in Settings -> General. While many of features were made with a specific customer in mind, anyone can use the features to improve their iPhone experience. Once such feature is the LED notification option.
Apple’s Watch includes an easy-to-access “Do Not Disturb” function that allows you to silence your phone when you are attending an event where you don’t want your Watch chiming or buzzing at you. Not only is turning on this Do Not Disturb mode easy, the Watch also can be configured to enable the feature on both the Watch and the iPhone at the same time. Read on to find out how to enable or disable Do Not Disturb on your Apple Watch, and use it with the iPhone.
Notifications is one of the killer features of the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch is like having the Notification Center on your wrist, so it reduces the need to remove your iPhone from the pocket or bag.
One of the primary features of the Apple Watch is its notification system that sends alerts from your iPhone to your wrist. Because incoming alerts can now appear on the Watch, iPhone owners can keep their phones stored safely in a bag or pocket, while they communicate via the wrist-worn device. These Watch-based alerts are a huge benefit for people traveling, exercising or engaging in outdoor water sports. We have spent a lot of time interacting with notifications, read on to find out how they work and how you can configure them so you get the most important information on your wrist.
The Notification Center in iOS is still incredibly basic. Apple has made some excellent improvements to the Today view, but the Notifications side leaves a lot to be desired. A new concept video below demonstrates some of the things Apple could do to change this in iOS 9.
