Many changes have been made since the iOS 16 update was released. Due to these changes, it may be a bit difficult to find the notifications. When your iPhone is locked, you can easily see the notifications on the screen, but when it’s unlocked, you may struggle to find the notification panel. But don’t worry, in this article I will show you how to see notifications on iOS 16 when the phone is unlocked.
How to see notifications on iOS 16 when phone is unlocked?
(The method explained below only works for iPhone X or newer.)
You can easily find notifications on your iOS 16 device. You just need to swipe down from the top left corner of your screen when your iPhone is unlocked. By swiping down from the top left corner of your screen, you get a notification center where all the notifications in a group are displayed.
To further split the group and view all notifications individually, you need to swipe up on the notification group that has been created. This will display all the old notifications on your screen.

To see the notifications on your iPhone 8 models or iPhone SE, you need to swipe down from the top center of your screen. Swiping down from the top center of your screen brings up the notification center. All notifications will be grouped according to their application after the iOS 16 update.
