    Did they remove the option to clear all notifications at once by tapping the X on the upper right corner in Notification Center? I see I now have to clear them one by one by swiping left and tapping “clear”

    Nope, the X is still there. I just used it.

    Out of curiosity, are you using a 5S or a 6-series device? I believe they removed the "x" for older devices that don't have 3D touch.

    That's odd, it shows up on my 7. If you haven't done a basic reset yet, I'd try that before doing anything more drastic.

    Is the X supposed to appear diagonally across from the day number in the date?

    The X does appear diagonally down across from the date. A simpler way to envision it may be to keep in mind that the X is situated directly in line with the day label (i.e. Earlier Today, Yesterday, Monday, etc.).

    You don’t see the X for current notifications. Slide up for older ones, 3D Touch on any X and you should be able to clear all.

    The X appears only when there are old notifications present, to clear recent notifications, you have to swipe each one by one.

    This is true. I have a notification from 45 minutes ago that has an X, but the one from 5 minutes ago does not. I wonder at what time a notification moves from "recent" to "earlier today".

    If you lock and unlock your device, then any "new"/"recent" notifications become "older" ones and your can see and use the "X" that shows up for them to clear them all at once.

    So this morning I have a boatload of notifications..... a few from the night before showing under older. But anything after midnight has to be cleared one by one. Really? What's Apple doing?
