    I know there are many threads discussing the changes in beta 4, but this is big news and I believe it deserve a separate thread.
    When you get a notification, just swipe up to get rid of it!!!
    I don't even remember how long we waited for this feature!!!
    I have tested it with a couple of mails and it works!!!
    Now the next thing we want is to get actionable notifications.

    This isn't new; the previous betas did that. That's why there wasn't a thread about it posted today.

    Edit: But I'm sure some people didn't know that, and this thread is probably really helpful. :eek:

    Really? I never noticed and never saw any post about it.
    Anyway, it's great to have this feature...

    Does the phrase..."taking the wind out of OP's sails" come to mind?:p ;)

    Yeah, been there since beta 1 for iOS 7.

    I recall being able to do it in iOS 6 (if not even earlier) as well...perhaps with a slight pull down prior to swiping it all up. This was in addition to being able to swipe them away by swiping right to left, which isn't there in iOS 7 anymore.

    I am on beta 2 and swiping notifications does nothing in any direction, other than scroll the list up and down.

    I'm surprised people didn't know about this but you could do this in iOS 6

    in iOS 6 you can swipe left on a notification and it would go away immediately, just like in iOS 7 you swipe up.

    Hi mate, When the notification appears, just swipe it back up and it goes. Hope this helps

    Are we sure we are talking about the same thing?
    In iOS 6 there was no way to react to an incoming notification. Only tap on it to bring the app in question.
    In all previous betas of iOS 7 I tried using gestures to get rid of notifications but that never worked, up until now.

    Oh are we talking about notification banners? That wasn't clear. I thought the OP meant the Notification Center.

    In iOS 5.1.1 you can do this. Swipe from right to left over the banner and it will bounce away. I use this a lot

    There was definitely a way in iOS 6 (and before) as well: swipe the notification banner right to left to make it go away, or alternatively pull it just a tiny bit down (kind of like starting to bring down the notification center) and swipe it up all in one quick motion.

    Hahaha, fair enough. By the time my comment was posted, there was already one ahead of it. :( So, uh, let's see…

    Great find, OP! Top notch work! :D

    Sorry, but wrong on both accounts (as others have mentioned). iOS6 (and possibly earlier) swipe left or right, iOS7 swipe up (since beta 1)

    And even swipe up in a way in iOS 6 and before if you pull just a tiny bit down first before swiping up.

    I've seen people say this but I've never ever been able to make this work. I just end up opening the notification.

    It's ok OP. You tried. You were just a few years too late.
