The iOS (iPhone) notification centre system makes it simple to keep track of new notifications and act on them, whether it’s immediately or at a later point. Every notification is stored in one place and can be accessed at any time with a single swipe of the finger. In this section we are going to take you through a comprehensive step-by-step guide of the entire process.
