Did Apple do enough to fix notifications? — Dieter

This is a good beginning by Apple. Better late than never.

Honestly, I only have notifications on for SMS and phone calls, everything else can bite it. Oh and to answer the question, I can't say until I use the new interface but I suspect this is still an uphill climb to usability summit.

Andrew Mercier iOS already has this... Force touch the notifications.

which app was used for screen recording?
Timi Akinlonu (1 day ago)
They kinda did but showing them all is kinda annoying. As an android user i am happy apple did this because there's a lot of apple users out there that love this feature that android have so seeing apple do this also will help android as well. competition and learning from your competitors is what drives the industry forward

God, why are people so unfair? Apple notifications are perfect... Well not as perfect as they were prior to iOS 10 when they made them less readable (by making them look more like android.) Now they are making them far worse by grouping them, so that you are not able to read them without touching the phone. I HOPE this will be an optional setting. I use both iPhone and Android every day and Android notifications are completely useless and extremely annoying. You can use apps such as Floatify to alleviate the problem to an extent but the apps are not as perfect as native iOS notifications.

Get to the point quicker it’s just notifications. Got haired 4 mins in.

Dieter has been getting way better the past year or two. He sounded too simple a la lay person borderline lazy before but now he sounds practical and knowledgeable. He managed to find that fine line!

Okay I don't know what changed behind the wheel, but I'm really digging these new kind of videos Verge is cranking out. 🔥
Leo Joey (7 days ago)
I don't know I never get any notifications so it was never an issue for me. Like for SnapChat I'll let those notifications run loose, but messages I'll turn off some people from the Notification Center, and only have them show as a red dot on the iMessage app. or insta I just turn off entirely. etc. maybe y'all should be proactive instead of yelling at apple to fix a problem that you can, if you tried?
PB-Panda (7 days ago)
Great video, but I disagree on the “manage” notifications button and your thoughts of it. While it is good to be able to change the settings quickly, this is something you only really do once in a while, so the button will be more of a nuisance when viewing a notification than anything else. We don’t download new apps that often - at least I don’t. I’d just as soon spend 30 seconds in settings.

Good thing to learn from android... apple are doing great tho...

icantwords (7 days ago)
What’s frustrating for me is they already had ‘grouped notifications’ but they removed it with iOS 10. And now they’re adding it again as a ‘new’ feature.

Jens Uhlmann (7 days ago)
Owning a Oneplus 6 and enjoying Stock Android 8.1, I can't understand this stupid mess of notifications in iOS at all... also this deviding of lock screen and notifications, wtf is this? How can people use this and not get completely annoyed by this? Im not an Apple hater by any means, but this is ridiculous...
Han Aral (8 days ago)
Unlike the newest version of android, iOS 12 will probably be what people are actually looking forward to updating to.
Han Aral (8 days ago)
You didn't really mention how it's mirrored on watchOS 5
Andrea Carriero (8 days ago)
I would like to silence the sender for a certain amount of time 5mins 10mins... not the full iMessage or WhatsApp for instance
Emad Ahmed (8 days ago)
I think Apple has sufficiently fixed the notifications on iOS 12. Yeah, they're still a far cry from Android's notifications, but they solved the major issues... which would be enough if they didn't do it so late since people wouldn't have upped their demands so much by seeing Android's notifications.
krithik raj (8 days ago)
wow something new!!!!!!!!!!!!! Android had this a decade ago!!
amihay sarfaty (8 days ago)
Apple has become from a company that leads the phones market to one that plays (vary badly) catchup.. That's sad.
Adrien Fève (8 days ago)
Really like the new direction taken by the verge
alphaandliarize (8 days ago)
I stopped watching at 2:09 because apparently, they forgot to mention about deleting everything at once can be done by 3D touching the X at the top and will prompt Clear All... or they don't know that all together. Please let me know if I'm right, if not feel free to correct me!
Brady Burnsides (8 days ago)
I'd like to try out iOS again since I feel like the iPhone hardware has finally gotten to a good place. I have 2 big things that are keeping me from switching though. 1. Better Notifications Even with these changes, I don't feel like the notification system has been fixed. Honestly for me it just seems very cluttered now. Maybe I need to get a hands-on with it first. I'm spoiled by Android notifications. 2. Default apps I think the only apps I'd want to change now are the default photos app (to Google Photos), default navigation app (to Google Maps), and maybe the default calendar app, though I haven't used Apple Calendars very much.

Best thing in Apple, Your phone has an update life of atleast 4-5 years. While in Android it's just 2 years in average.
Hayden Patterson (8 days ago)
OH MY GOD THEY HAVE ALMOST REACHED 2012 ANDROID
LightningMotionshot (8 days ago)
Not really that innovative. They copied this from BB10, where notifications are also grouped on a per-app basis on the lock screen (and I like BB10's implementation better as it only expands when you click an app icon rather than a big overblown list by default like in iOS 12).
Derek Jones (8 days ago)
Thnx’s Apple
Canosis Plays (8 days ago)
I’m quickly seeing I’m not a power user. My notifications are on for Apple Pay, email and messages. That’s about it. This solution is perfect for my use case.

I just want to be able to delete emails again straight from the notification centre and lock screen.
Marcos Vinicius (8 days ago)
So basically what Android has been doing for ages. Including the "do not disturb" settings.
James B (8 days ago)
They are a lot better, but I still don't like them notifications (just copy android already apple, no one really care). Like at 1:24 why are Felicia's 2 messages in 2 separate bubbles - just have a it in 1 bubble!! This is a bad use of space, and it makes it seem like it's 2 different convos. Also, I'll add - do you really need the title "notification centre" in notification centre; again just a bad use of space - how much room on a phone screen does apple think they have....
Dominic Shiells (8 days ago)
Why didn't they sort out control centre as it is still terrible
R_Y_N (8 days ago)
Android has had these features for years now
Chinmay Ingle (8 days ago)
Did that zooming out made you go crazy ?😐y tho?
UltraFighter18 (8 days ago)
A comparison with Android would be interesting and I would like to see how The Verge will present it. Because from this clip is more than obvious that Apple just made their notification system more like it's on Android. And I know notifications were grouped in iOS 9, still the sum of the changes Apple did(more control and options) with the notification system in iOS 12 makes more like an overall Android copy.

this channel has become one of my favourite tech channels now. finally videos that really contain a lot of information instead of over-exaggerated excitement and present it in an easy way and sort of focused. <10min are the best.

I must be the only person who really does not rely much on notifications. I do not need notifications for all my social media to be pushed onto my phone. I check them regularly anyway, I can just go to it.

smrfr (8 days ago)
I didn't have the same patience. I switched back to Android as soon I previewed iOS grouped notifications. They need to prioritize functionality, speed and user experience over presentation in this department. A busy day on and off the phone with many notifications is unnecessarily stressful on iOS

I bet f t was apple ,the comment section wud b full of(why Android copy apple)....am still wondering y apple funs can't accept that Android is far more better ....and again it's amatter of what u want ,u lyk apple or Android ,it's simple..! And it's not coping as people always prefer t to be ,I think a combination of borrowing ideas and re designing some areas where u think the competitor s good and also listening to your clients demand...

Ihsan Husandi (8 days ago)
This is new grouped notification is not enough, I guess it’s worse since you have to tap first to see any previous messages, and the visual also takes too much space they need to put messages in one single boxes, not the old different box but grouped together
Andrew Branch (8 days ago)
Liked (not because of iOS copying Android) because your conversational delivery is fantastic. (+Minnesota)
VenoStuff (8 days ago)
I agree that Apple fixed the notifications. I don’t agree that Android has better notification management anymore.
Aryan Kumar (8 days ago)
VenoStuff oh ok.
VenoStuff (8 days ago)
Aryan Kumar emm…you can reply directly from the notification without opening an app… 🤔
Aryan Kumar (8 days ago)
VenoStuff Not directly from the notification. On Android Oreo, you just expand the notification by swiping down on it, then a textbox and a "reply" button appear. All in the notification.
VenoStuff (8 days ago)
Aryan Kumar emm, then why there’s a reply button?
Aryan Kumar (8 days ago)
VenoStuff You still can't reply to something directly or have smart one-tap replies.

+The Verge +Dieter Bohn Nice try Apple (with the notifications) though it's not enough for me to switch back from Android. Android *got notifications hands down!* I've been an Android user since 2011 and everytime I try to revert and use iOS, I just find myself yawning.

This should be a fix that should have happened long time ago, at least just group by apps. I don't understand why it took Apple so long but luckily they finally are trying to fix it.

Vitor Elias Luiz (8 days ago)
I believe notifications were improved by a lot this time, but we gotta wait and see how it actually turns out...
Riyaz Ahmad (8 days ago)
Now nobody is going to say that Apple copied notifications from android
Aryan Kumar (8 days ago)
Riyaz Ahmad Who cares if Apple copied it? It doesn't mean it's bad. Besides grouped notifications are an essential feature, not an extra. That's like saying that Android copied the capacitive touch screen by Apple, that's bullshit because it's essential. But saying that Android copied the gestures makes sense.
Riyaz Ahmad (8 days ago)
Coz apple fanbois won't say this.. They're blind and deaf when apple copies something
Aryan Kumar (8 days ago)
Riyaz Ahmad Literally all Android fanboys are saying that.

it stupid how you cant just swipe away notifications. You have to swipe them then hit clear.
Vincent Tan (8 days ago)
Nice video👍🏽 And finally yes! Group notification and do not disturb while sleeping is what I neeeeeeddddd😂
Oblivion (8 days ago)
If they make apps put their notifications into categories like Android does so you can disable certain notifications from an app but still receive a different type, then I'm impressed and they've caught up

It seems i gradually like watching the Verge especially by Dieter
Lukas Davison (8 days ago)
Hi Dieter. Thanks for your video. I like your style: It's pretty clean and direct, also the subtitles really help to get the point easier when your primarly language isn't English. Answering your question: I'm not so sure. I would rather say they did the minimum they could do, which was obviously fixing that Twitter like UI. But we should sing victory before time. They should be able to display the number of notifications you have in an app i.e WhatsApp like "You have X notifications". Also it would really help that IOS could identify the apps you use more to see their notifications first (in the case you sleep and receive tons of messages and other kind of notifications). But i can't look at less some features like the "Do not Disturb" thing which let's you to configure it in an specific area or with the movies. Thanks again for this episode. Looking forward to the review of other IOS 12 new elements. Bye
David Barker (8 days ago)
Apple finally took some cues from Android as far as notifications go. "Some" not entirely, for you annoying Apple fan boys.
