8. Notifications Screen Is Now…Lock Screen?
This one is confusing and maybe you won’t even notice it. So, you probably have Notifications that appear on your Lock screen. And if you were actively using your iPhone in the old days, you’d swipe down from the top to get to the Notifications screen. On iOS 11, if you swipe down from the top—you go to the Lock Screen…where the Notifications are. It’s a little weird, but Apple essentially just merged the two screens. What that means is, you swipe down to see all Notifications you’ve not yet cleared when your phone is unlocked. When your phone is unlocked, swipe up from the middle of the screen to see those notifications.
