iOS 12 for the iPhone has a complete overhaul of how notifications are managed. You can group them, you can turn them off more easily, and Do Not Disturb is also improved. In this episode of Processor, Dieter Bohn breaks it down. Subscribe: http://goo.gl/G5RXGs

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.
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.
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?
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.
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...
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.
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!
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.
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).
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....
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.
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...
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
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.
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.
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
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
