What Changes iOS 11 ‘Cover Sheet’ Brings Over ‘Notification Center’?

Notifications play a very important role in our daily life whether it is about reminders, messages, news and what not.

Of course, if someone messes with these notifications you’ll be pissed.

Apple on Monday came up with the new iOS 11 Public Beta 1, which corresponds with the second developer beta that was released just last week. The new iOS comes with many small changes and a few big ones. It has introduced the functionality to record your screen, a customizable control center, and the much talked about Notification Center.

Well, Notification Center’s name is now changed to called Cover Sheet which looks similar to the lock screen and has a series of changes which might be confusing to some people.

The working has not totally changed, you still need to swipe down from the top of the screen to view recent notifications, but now an additional swipe will be required to view older notifications. An “Earlier Today” section has been introduced for this.

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. Of course getting your hands right on through the new process and forgetting the older one will need some time and patience which has definitely left some of the users very disappointed and pissed.

Also there is a change in the way you will be able to handle a notification, to take action on a notification you now have to either long or hard press on an alert, depending on your device as compared to iOS10 where sliding an individual alert to the left and tapping on one of the options did the job.
