3D Touch Lets You 'Clear All' Notifications on iPhone, a Trick That's Rarely Known

Apple managed to sneak in a lot of cool new 3D Touch actions with the release of iOS 10. For example, you now have the option to increase or decrease the iPhone flashlight brightness if you deep press on the flashlight icon in Control Center. Furthermore, if you deep press on the camera icon in Control Center, you are presented with a bunch of options pertaining to recording a video, taking a selfie, a regular photo etc. These actions, and more, are littered throughout iOS 10 that are waiting to be discovered. That's why we are going to take things further by showing you how you can utilize 3D Touch to clear all notification in one go. Sure, you can press the little 'x' icon in Control Center and get rid of everything for that particular day, then yesterday, then the day before it, and so on. But what if you want to clear everything from the beginning of time in one go? Pick up your 3D Touch enabled iPhone and follow what we have to say.


Note: This tutorial is applicable for devices that support 3D Touch. Currently those devices are iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

1. Unlock your iPhone.

2. Pull down from the top of the display to bring up Notification Center.

4. You'll see a 'Clear All Notifications' option. Tap on that.

That's it, you have successfully cleared all of your notifications, making things absolutely nice and tidy, the way they should have been.

While this feature might not serve to be a lifesaver for many users out there, but we all have that moment where we are forced to clean things up without jumping into apps to see what others are talking about. Besides, the process of cleaning up notifications one at a time is hectic to say the least. Why do things one day at a time when you can do it in one fell swoop right?
