How to See Notifications on iPhone 13

Notifications are an essential part of our iPhone experience. They keep us updated about new messages, emails, and app alerts.

With the latest iPhone 13, managing notifications has become even more convenient. In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to see notifications on your iPhone 13 and customize them according to your needs.

Step 1: Unlock Your iPhone 13

Start by unlocking your iPhone 13 using Face ID, Touch ID, or passcode.

Step 2: Access the Notification Center

To access the Notification Center, swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen. You will see a list of notifications organized by app.


If you are using an older iPhone model with a Home button (like iPhone SE or earlier), swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the Notification Center.

Step 3: View and Interact with Notifications

In the Notification Center, you can view all your recent notifications. Each notification will display a short preview of its content along with the app icon and name.

  • To open an individual notification: Tap on it to launch the corresponding app and view more details.
  • To dismiss a single notification: Swipe it to the left or right until it disappears from the list.
  • To clear all notifications: Swipe up from anywhere in the list or tap on “Clear All” at the top.


If you accidentally dismiss a notification, don’t worry! You can still find it in the Notification Center’s History section by scrolling to the top and tapping “Show Less” or “Show More.”

Step 4: Customize Notification Settings

Your iPhone 13 offers various options to customize how notifications appear and behave. Follow these steps to personalize your notification settings:

Option 1: Manage Notification Center Widgets

iOS 15 introduced widgets in the Notification Center, allowing you to see more information at a glance. To manage your widgets:

  • Swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen to open the Notification Center.
  • Scroll down until you see the “Edit” button at the bottom.
  • Tap on “Edit” and select or deselect widgets based on your preferences.
  • To rearrange widgets, tap and hold the three horizontal lines next to a widget, then drag it up or down in the list.

Option 2: Customize App Notifications

You can individually customize notifications for each app installed on your iPhone 13. To do this:

  • Navigate to Settings from your home screen.
  • Select “Notifications” and choose an app from the list.
  • Tweak notification settings, such as allowing banners, sounds, badges, or disabling them altogether for a specific app.

Option 3: Group Notifications

iOS 15 introduced notification grouping, making it easier to manage multiple notifications from one app. To enable or disable this feature:

  • Navigate to Settings.
  • Toggle on or off the “Allow Notifications” option.

By following these steps, you can effectively manage and customize notifications on your iPhone 13 according to your preferences and needs. Stay up-to-date with important alerts while maintaining a clutter-free experience!
