We finally advise that it’s safe to upgrade your iPhone or iPad to iOS 8. The number of problems after the upgrade has quieted down after Apple’s updates.
I just upgraded my iPhone to iOS 8 and am taking advantage of the Notification Center.
What is the Notification Center? Put your finger at the very top center of the screen, and swipe down. You’ll get a page of useful info having to do with your day. (Note that at the top you have a Today button and a Notifications button.)
You can edit what shows up in the notification center. To edit: Scroll down to the bottom of the Notification Center page and click the Edit button. You have options to add or remove, such as calendar, reminders, and stocks. You can also change the order by dragging.
Did you know some non-Apple apps have “widgets” to allow you to show relevant into in your Notification Center as well? Here are a few. (You need to download the app first, and then go into Notification Center > Edit and click the plus sign to get them to appear.)
Some of the best apps with a Notification Center option:
Evernote: Add a note right from here
OpenTable: Shows your dinner reservations
Dropbox: Shows the most recent file changes
ESPN SportsCenter: Quick access to scores
