    So, I remember reading that rich notifications would eventually come to devices without 3D Touch.

    It wasn't included in the first beta, and as far as I can see, it is not included in the GM.

    Has Apple said anything regarding a time frame for this to come?


    Thanks!

    You swipe on the notifications to use the rich features.

    Notifications on the lock screen (or in notification centre) you swipe left and tap on "View" to get the rich notifications.

    First party only for now because 3rd party apps need to update for it still.

    Thanks! I was under the wrong impression that we would get the same kind of response that 3D Touch with maybe a longer press. For app icons for example.

    Long press would have seemed to have made perfect sense to me. Long press cannot emulate (without ridiculous and awkward timing issues) the multi-level input of 3D Touch (light = peek -> harder -> reply) but it seems like anywhere Apple considered replacing 3D Touch with a gesture they could have just picked one level of "depth", in this case harder/reply and said that's what you get when you long press, anything else is a swipe away.

    I imagine they thought of it and there's something I'm missing that makes that impracticable though. There usually is.

    We had this feature in IOS 9. I don't think this is Rich Notifications.

    "View" is a new option (or renamed and changed behaviour) in iOS 10. When you two on View you get the same rich notification as someone would if they used 3D Touch (which brings up the rich notification on a 3D Touch capable device.)

    I think the idea with rich notifications is that applications can now define a little chunk of UI to be presented on the lock screen when you initiate an action.

    As I understand it, in cases when no rich notification actions exist, then that view action would be essentially the same as in iOS 9 (basically just going to the app), but in cases when a rich notification action exists for a particular notification then the view action would perform that rich notification action (rather than simply going to the app, which is what would happen in iOS 9).

    This and also rich notifications can show all the new In-Line content added in iOS 10 as well.

    Don't quite understand your wording. What I know is that "View" does the same thing as "Reply" did in IOS 9. So functionality is the same. Just renamed. "Clear" is the same as the little "X" to clear the notification as was in IOS 9. So what is new about this functionality? It's the same thing but renamed.

    "View" brings up the same quick reply that "Reply" did, at least for messages in IOS 9. Selecting the iMessage from the lockscreen and sliding (IOS 10) brings up the actual app. So nothing is new there either.

    So where is the Rich Notification? For me it would have been a long hold to allow the same functionality that 3D touch allows. Which unfortunately Apple did not provide. I guess the "slide" on the notification what they refer to as "Rich Notifications." However, this was the same functionality in IOS 9 but the gesture changed.

    So if you think about it was we had "Rich Notifications" from the beginning in IOS 9. If that is what Apple is referring to.

    Well in iOS 10 you should be able to see the last few messages sent in a window. That's the difference that makes it "rich".
