Apple wants to make sure you don’t miss any of that gorgeous new Lock Screen design, so it’s rethought notifications so they won’t get in the way.
Notifications now roll in from the bottom so they don’t block the Lock Screen, and they can also be hidden throughout the day.
Further, to deal with repeated notifications that often come from things like live sporting events, ride-hailing, and delivery apps, Apple is introducing Live Activities.
Instead of repeating notifications, developers can put up a single notification block that gets dynamically updated. For example, a notification could show the current score from a game, or the progress of an Uber ride, all changing in real-time. The Lock Screen Music Player is also being rolled into this new Live Activity design.
