iOS 10’s Intrusive Notifications

When I chanced upon an article last week about developers already testing the iOS 10.1 version, I finally decided to update my iPhone 6 Plus’s software. Update went smoothly but not without me getting a bit paranoid about the black screen.

One problem I did immediately notice is that the notifications have become intrusive to the point that I kept mistakenly clicking on the default Banner notification while I was in the middle of a Cooking Dash episode. Unlike the newer iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, my phone’s processor still isn’t capable of saving the game apps if I click away from it for a while; by the time I go back to the game app, it would have already taken me back to the “downloading” page even if I paused the episode I was on.

Yeah, right! Something’s indeed about to be ruined; I can’t see through what I’m cooking!

I experimented with the Notifications settings and found only the Banners option made sense because the Alert option is obviously even more glaring. However I look at it, both Banners and Alerts are intrusive.
