    Hi, every new release of IOS I hope that Apple will bring option to keep notifications on lock screen after unlocking phone. For me it is very uncomfortable when I unlock phone for some reason and after lock I miss all my notifications from lock screen. Then I usualy miss some of them.
    If I am on jailbreak, there are som JB tweaks for this, but I dont want to be jailbroken because of such simple thing to implement to IOS.
    Is there just me or there is more of you with feature request like me.

    I'm guessing you know this but just in case, the notifications remain in the notifications screen, which you can access from the lock screen. Lock screen notifications are only meant to show you things that happened since you last unlocked.

    Thanks, yes there are some of them, but not all of them as I noticed. One time I had about 12-15 notifications by 4 apps. After unlocking and locking there were just 5 last from 1 app.

    Well that seems odd. To my knowledge (and experience) notification centre should retain all notifications indefinitely, until you delete them. I'm not sure what's up there then. Maybe someone else can chime in.

    Did you open or use the apps which had notifications raised?

    Some apps have different rules about how notifications are cleared. Some apps persist on the lock screen until explicitly discarded, some clear from Notification Center when you open the app, some when you do a specific action within the app, some when you perform an action on another device/website etc

    Pretty sure there is no universal way to control this

    Im not sure what I exactly did. But sure I didnt open all three apps which notifications disappeared. That´s why I was suprised where all my notifications gone. I will be careful and check it more.

    Check your notification settings. An app can have show on lock screen but don't show in Notification Center.

    I did. All my notifications are allowed in NC and on LS.

    Then they should still be in NC even after you unlock (and then re-lock), aside from any that you clear or view or open the associated app which basically clears the notifications for that app.

    I will check it and if it is as you write, it's almost ok for me. But I prefer option to have those notifications on LS. Maybe in future iOS.

    They are also cleared if you interact with them (swipe, view, clear).
