    Hopefully just a beta thing, but in iOS 11 I can no longer clear notifications (or quick interact), by swiping left on notifications on lock screen to show ‘clear’ for example.

    Has the interaction changed in some way?

    I also can’t hard-press to interact with a notification unless it’s unlocked first (which sometimes just unlocks whole phone..)

    Any tips?

    Same, swiping left just opens up the camera, swiping right takes me to my widgets.

    No swiping notifications in iOS 11, at least for now. A long press or 3D Touch should give you the options per notification.

    It does, but only if it’s unlocked, otherwise the notification blurs for a moment and then stays.

    Unfortunately unlocking phone with TouchID sometimes unlocks entire phone (depending on how you woke it up), so then you have to go hunting for that notification in the right app..

    Fingers crossed this is just a beta bug!

    I’m on DP2 and can action notifications on the lock screen by 3D Touch on iPhone 7+ or long press on iPad Pro. You must unlock to actually take the action, but that’s correct behavior. Are you on PB1? Anyone else seeing that behavior?

    If that’s what you’re seeing then, yes, I’m certain it’s a bug.

    On iOS 10 you could clear a notification without unlocking (if you attempted to delete / reply etc you needed to authenticate)

    You can on 11 too. Long/3D press then hit the X in the top right of the notification (NB I only had a couple of HomeKit notifications to test this with). Or do you mean straight swiping to remove it directly?

    Currently I mean neither seems to work..
    - straight swiping changes to widget or camera
    - long press (no Force Touch), doesn’t work unless it’s unlocked first (no padlock at top of lock screen, using Touch ID)

    If you clicked the home button to wake the device, authenticating with Touch ID unlocks whole screen...

    Doesnt work this way on iPhone 6. you have to unlock the iPhone first to even use "long press" to get the notification to open

    I see. I can’t fix your situation but on my end: -

    - Yes, swiping acts on the screen at the moment, not the notification. No idea if that’s what will make it to GM
    - Long press on my iPad, on the lock screen (not just the notification screen) causes a notification to pop up with all its actions present and cross on the upper right of it which I can use to dismiss it.
    - Home button (or rather Touch ID) being a bit too quick on the draw isn’t new but definitely frustrates some people. Depending on your device Raise to Wake or using the Wake/Sleep button might be an option. That or pressing home very quickly.

    A lot of people during DP1 and DP2 have expressed frustration at the current behaviour, and it sounds like you’re experiencing different behaviour still, at least from what I’ve been seeing. Betas are “fun” :confused:

    That makes more sense to me now then. On my iPad, which obviously doesn’t have 3D touch, long press is a stand in. I’m sure (or at least I’m fairly sure) that things will get more consistent as the beta progresses.

    I have an iphone 6+ and I have the issue where I am unable to interact with notifications. The iPhone 6 does not have force touch. Hope they let us long press on the notification in future beta updates.

    Seems like they either have to add it to pre-6s iPhones or take it away from iPads if they’re going to be consistent. Let’s hope it’s the former.

    It somewhat makes no sense. You can long press on items in the control centre on the 6 & 6+. It works for wifi, flashlight etc. but not for notifications.

    Its likely going to become more consistent throughout the beta process.

    I'm sure they will. I just hope they don't remove it from the 6 and 6+.
