    Did anyone ever use it on purpose yet? I never have and I don't see why I would. Seems so useless to me. Thoughts?

    There's a team of engineers and doctors trying to figure out what the hell it's for.

    If you leave a notification more than 24h without removing it frome the NC it moves in the "missed" tab.

    It is for notifications received while the phone was locked and asleep. All notifications show up under the All tab (those that came in while phone was in use, and those that came in while phone was locked and asleep). Only the latter appears in the Missed tab.

    I know, but why would you use it that way? Who actually goes to the 'missed tab', just to see missed notifications? What's wrong with looking in the same place as all other notifications?

    So again, who really uses it?

    There is a use for it, but who actually uses it for that (or anything else)...yeah that's a good question.

    Thanks captain Obvious.

    I'm interested if such a person exists and if so, if he could explain why it is useful.

    Only thing I can think of is if you have a ton of notifications in the All tab and you just want to filer out missed phone calls in the Missed tab.

    Not something that seems like common usage.

    The thing is the ALL tab can be cluttered by all sorts of notifications. On mine I see at least 10 notifications from Tapatalk, 10 e-mails and other notifications. I guess Apple's intention was to seperate the time sensitive notifications but meh, they need to re-think this one.
