Add or Remove Apps from Notification Center in iOS
You can quickly add or remove any items from showing up in Notification Center in iOS through the central system settings. This isn’t the same method as disabling an item like the stock ticker, but it’s faster if you want to adjust several apps at once and quickly determine what appears in Notification Center screen on the iPad or iPhone, and what apps don’t show up there.
Changing What Apps Show in Notification Center
This will apply to iOS on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch:
- Open “Settings” and tap on “Notifications”
- Scroll down to “In Notifications Center” and tap on the “Edit” button in the upper right corner
- Tap and drag from the right-side of any iOS app, drag down to remove an app from Notifications Center or drag up to add an app
- Click on “Done” when satisfied, and close out of Settings when finished
The list of items at the top are apps that are set to be visible in Notification Center, while the list of items at the bottom are apps that are not visible in Notification Center. If you can’t drag the apps between each list then you are not in the “Edit” mode, so do that first.
Using the same settings panel, it’s also possible to adjust precisely where an app is displayed within Notification Center, rather than relying on the two default sorting options. Do that just by dragging them around according to where you want each apps respective placement within the list of notifications.
Changes made here are visible immediately by pulling down Notification Center with the familiar swipe down gesture from the iOS clock area.
