iPhone: how to use iOS 12 notifications

IOS 12 has brought improvements in managing app notifications. The user can now mute or disable direct alerts from the lock screen without having to open system settings. In addition, alerts can be grouped by application. This prevents incoming messages in chat apps, for example, from overcharging and polluting the iPhone's notification center.

In the following tutorial, check out how to use the new iOS 12 notification features. The procedure was performed on an iPhone 8, but the tips are valid for any device with the latest version of the Apple system.
