How to handle iOS 11’s big Lock Screen change

After installing iOS 11, you’re bound to notice a lot of small changes and some bigger changes. There’s the ability to record your screen, a customisable control centre and then there’s… Notification Centre.

Actually, it’s no longer called Notification Centre. It’s now called Lock Screen. In fact, it is the lock screen, but now it works much in the same way Notification Centre did.

You still swipe down from the top of the screen to view recent notifications, but now an additional swipe up is required to view older notifications. The “Recent” section is sometimes labeled “Earlier Today.”

To go back to the previous screen, you can swipe up from the very bottom of the screen. If you don’t start at the bottom, you’ll likely keep scrolling through older alerts. Getting it right will take some patience and practice.

With Lock Screen, you can still swipe in either direction across a notification to do things like clear or open it. Only now, you can swipe all the way to complete the action without having to press the button once it’s visible.

A long or hard press on an alert will also bring up more interaction options, as it did prior to iOS 11.
