Apple has revamped Notification Center in iOS 16. For a change, the Notification Center now pops up from the bottom of the screen. Moreover, all of your notifications are represented in a pretty neat stack style. While this is a well-thought-out feature and also looks cool, not everyone may find it useful. If that’s you, fortunately, there is a straightforward way to get back the old iOS 15-style notification view in iOS 16 on iPhone.
Get Back Old iOS 15-Style Notification View on iPhone Running or Later
If you are wondering how this hack works, let me tell you that the redesigned Notification Center itself offers an option to adopt the list view.
Step 1. To get going, open the Settings app on your iOS device.
Step 2. Now, tap Notifications.
Step 3. Next, tap Display As.
Step 4. Next up, you have three options:
- Stack: It’s selected by default and presnets all of lyour notifications in a stack style.
- Count: As the name itself suggests, it shows all of your notifications as a total count.
- List: It shows your notifications in a list style. Yeah, this is exactly what you should choose to get back the old notification view.
Select List and you are good to go!
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Which devices are compatible with iOS 16?
Note that only iPhone 8 and later supports iOS 16 or later.
2. Why has my iPhone become slow after the software update?
Don’t worry, it’s usual for an iPhone to become a bit slow after a software update as the new update takes some time to settle. In the meantime, you can disable power-hungry features and also update all apps to improve the battery life.
From now onwards, iOS 16 will represent your notifications in the list view. Of course, if you ever happen to change your mind, you can also head into the notifications settings and make the desired changes.
Both in terms of versatility and security, iOS 16 looks pretty impressive. New add-ons like Quick Note, Lock Screen customization, the ability to unsend and edit iMessages, and Developer Mode make it feature-packed. Moreover, it also promises to be more stable than its predecessor iOS 15 which was rather buggy. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the lock screen widgets as they have added an all-new dimension.
