Hi there,

Seems like I had just experienced this bug myself today.
I got numerous missed calls on my iPhone SE, and could not clear them the way its explained in the HTG link. Has anyone experienced this as well?

Many people had issues it seems like in the past.

I swiped down to get notifications center, and then swiped left and tapped the X. No reaction at all.
So I then restarted my phone, and all were cleared after that.

Yep, that is a known issue for a long time. For me it happens if I leave notifications uncleared for a day or two. Then they get stuck there unless I restart the phone. Some apps clear ok all the time, but Mail doesn't.

I'm on a 6s+ with 9.3.5 if that matters.

I see this issue after a phone reboot. It shortLy clears itself up. As a hack, go into app that won't clear and then can clear (most of my problem notifications are Reminders, so, clearing them in Fantastical gets thing flowing again).

Yeah, I haven't had it quite a while but now started running into it again over the last few days.
