Everything you need to know about setting up and using Notification Center,
from Lock screen notifications to the Today view, banners to popups, sounds
to Do Not Disturb!

Notification Center is Apple’s
attempt to bring order and sanity to the myriad alarms, alerts, messages,
calls, announcements, and challenges that flood our iPhones, iPods, and
iPads every day. With Notification Center, you can choose on an app-by-app
basis between unobtrusive banners, un-ignorable popups, and between beeps,
buzzes, or nothing at all. You can badge your icons so you know how many
items you have pending, and you can have everything listed for you right on
your Lock screen, so you know about it immediately, or whenever you’re
ready. When too many notifications become interruptions, you can set a timer
or flip a switch and silence it all for as little or as long as you want.

Also note, we’ll be updating this guide regularly as Apple introduces more
Notification Center features, so make sure you bookmark this page and check

Notification Center collects and organizes all your alerts, all in one
place. Whether they’re on the Lock screen or the Missed view, whether
they’re a banner or a popup, whether they beep or buzz, Notification Center
does all it can to make sure you get all the alerts you need. But how
exactly does it work? If you see a notification on the Lock screen, what can
you do with it? If you’re on the Home screen or in an app, how do you even
get to Notification Center? If you get a banner or a popup, what can you do
with it? Well, if you have Notification Center questions, we have answers!

*How to disable Notification Center on the Lock screen of your iPhone and
iPad

By default you can pull down Notification Center from your
Lock screen to quickly get to any recent
messages or notifications you need to access. If, however, for privacy and
security reasons, you prefer Notification Center not be accessible from the
Lock screen, there’s an easy way to disable it.

*How to set up and use Do Not Disturb mode on iPhone and iPad

While Notification Center is a great way to make sure you never miss an
alert, there are some times when you might not want to hear the beeping and
the buzzing that typically comes with them. Enter Do Not Disturb. With Do
Not Disturb, your iPhone or iPad will keep collecting all your alerts but
will do so quietly. Whether you’re in a meeting, at a romantic dinner, or
simply trying to get a good night’s sleep, Do Not Disturb will make sure you
can talk, eat, or sleep in peace and quiet, and still find all your alerts
waiting for you when you’re ready.

*How to disable Notification Center banners, popups, badges, and sounds

Notification Center alerts you to everything that’s happening on your
iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad using a combination of banners, popups, badges,
and sounds/vibrations. That’s great if it’s something really important like
an alarm, appointment, or message. But when every app and game on your
iPhone starts blinking, beeping, and buzzing, notification quickly turns
into constant interruption. When everything is urgent, nothing is. Luckily,
Notification Center also lets you turn off those banners, popups, badges,
and sounds on an app-by-app basis, so you get to decide what’s important
enough to get your attention. That’s right, serenity — and sanity! — can
be yours again in just a few simple steps.

*How to customize the Today view on Notification Center for iPhone and iPad

Notification Center’s Today view gives you day and date, next appointment,
next destination, calendar list, reminders, stocks, an tomorrow’s highlight
all at a quick glance. But what if you just don’t care about weather or
stocks? What if calendar’s on the Today view just aren’t your thing? Well,
you can customize Notification Center’s Today view to show you only those
things that matter to you!

*How to organize alerts in Notification Center for iPhone and iPad

By default, Notification Center lists alerts in the order in which apps were
installed. That’s all well and good until your important messages and tasks
get lost amid a stream of breaking news and game challenges. Luckily, you
can change the order of alerts in Notification Center to be time and date
based, or in whatever custom app sequence makes the most sense to you!

*How to use the flash on your iPhone as a LED notification light

Notification Center can make your iPhone beep or buzz when a new alert comes
in, but what if you want or need more? What if you’re hearing impaired or
came from BlackBerry or some other smartphone with an LED notification
light? What if you want that on the iPhone? Well, thanks to Apple and iOS
Accessibility options, you can turn the LED camera flash into just that!
