3 Useful Tips for iOS iPhone, iPad Notification Center


Since iOS, the biggest change is the notification center and since then the only widgets which I can see is a Weather widget and the stock widget. Apart from that now Facebook and Twitter also have the access to that and now you can directly post anything to these social networks by the notification center. But believe there are very few users who use those widgets of stock market and weather forcasting ever and for them it gets annoying when they cannot remove it. Today we will tell you that how you can get rid of these widgets and how can you any application to be in the notification center and how you can change the notification style of the application on your phone.

Removing the Widgets

Go to the notifications section in the Settings and then tap the edit button.

To remove this widget, just tap and hold on the name of that widget and then drag them to drop it under the section of ‘Not in notification center’. Finally tap done and then you will not see that widget anymore in the section, this method is same for both the widgets in the notification center. If you want to remove the buttons for sharing of Facebook and Twitter then you can do the same with the Share Widget in the notification section.

Change the priority of notifications from applications

You can change the priority of the notifications being displayed in the notification center. For example if you want to see the notifications of Facebook prior to that of Twitter then you can change this priority which will log all the notifications from Facebook above the notifications of Twitter.

Again tap the Edit button as done before and then arrange them in the order as the priority you want. That’s it!! The order in which they are arranged here will be the order in which you will see the notification in the notification center.

Change the style of Notification

There are basically 3 ways in which you can opt the way your notification to be appeared on the screen. One of them is the alert style, the other one is the badge style and finally you can totally turn them off and it will not display the notification at all.

The type of display can be seen from the screenshot.

These are the primary features which can help you to control the notifications of all the applications available on your phone. Please let us know if you have any other problem related to the notification center.
