Clear Notifications In The iOS 5 Notification Center [iOS Tips]



My Notification Center tends to get a bit busy. It shows me my favorite stocks, weather, five of my most recent emails and upcoming calendar appointments. Now and then I’d like to clear these items from the Notification Center.

Here is an easy way to do just that.

If the header for a section out of  all the displayed alerts in the Notification Center has an “X” inside of a circle you can clear all the displayed messages with two taps. The example below shows this for the Mail alerts.

Just look for the “X” inside of a circle, which you will find on the right hand side of a the header bar. Tap it once and it will change to the word “Clear. ”

Tap it again when it reads “Clear” and that section of the Notification Center is cleared of all notifications until a new one arrives.
