Group Notifications and Screen Time are the best announcements of iOS 12. In this article, we will talk about group notifications. Group Notifications prevents the alerts and notifications from scattering and make a group of them so that with one swipe you can remove the notifications of the particular app from the screen.
The basic idea behind this feature is if we don’t enable Group notifications you will receive separate notification without order and scattered on the screen. You have to scroll and scroll to get notification of particular app. Instead, when you enable group notification the alerts of the particular app will be grouped together and when you tap on them they will expand. I hope you understood what is Group Notifications.
