iOS 5 Stock Ticker

Don’t want to see the Stock Ticker on the iPhone or iPads Notification Center in iOS 5? This was one of the first questions a friend asked me after updating to iOS 5, so if the stock markets don’t play into your daily life, here’s how to remove the stocks widget:

Disable the Stock Ticker in iOS 5

  • Launch “Settings” and tap on “Notifications”
  • Tap on “Stock Widget”
  • Slide on the “ON” widget to turn it “OFF”

Remove the Stock Ticker in iOS 5

Now you can pull down the Notification Center and not see the stock market to be reminded of your portfolios abysmal performance (unless you own AAPL or GOOG of course)
