iOS 12 brought many new features and enhancements to iPhone and iPad, including Screen Time to help manage your time using apps, new Animoji and Memoji, ARKit 2 and much more.

One small improvement that actually made a big splash, considering it had been highly-requested by users, is stacked notifications (officially known as Grouped Notifications), which can help clean up your Lock Screen and Notification Center by grouping app alerts.

Stacked notifications in iOS 12 make your iPhone’s alerts feel more organized and the feature is a wonderful improvement to iOS overall.
