Although the owners of iPhone and Android only take us like the dog and the cat, there is no doubt that There is a point we have in common, the hatred of iOS notifications . Historically, Android has been above iOS in this aspect since its first version, and it is not conceivable that, in full 2018, if you send 30 WhatsApp messages, you have 30 separate banners on the notification screen.
Apple’s sloppiness with notifications is the most criticized point by the company’s own fans, and for the first time in years, rumors about a radical change in the same ones resonate . Inevitably, the change of notifications in iOS requires that the operating system of the iPhone and iPad is closer to the one we have in Android, and that is precisely what could happen.
As our colleagues from MovilZona tell us , iOS 12 could have, finally, grouped notifications . Currently, notifications reach iOS wildly , without grouping or numbering. If you send 100 messages on WhatsApp, you will have 100 banners to scroll through, crazy. This system does not make any sense, and Apple users have been demanding a change for years.
As we can see in the images, finally, iOS would group notifications by applications , so that we do not have hundreds and hundreds of banners on the blocking screen. However, they would still be far from the interaction we have in Android with the notifications, and that is that from Android Oreo, we have a system of Notification channels, which allows us to prioritize different notifications within an app , apart from that our system of quick answers with preview of the chat, is much more advanced.
However, it is a big step by Apple, which remains in rumor until the presentation of iOS 12 in the next WWDC 2018. This would be the biggest change in the history of iOS , so we will be attentive to see what they have taken us borrowed .
