How to Switch From Notification Banners to Popup Alerts on iPhone/iPad

Here is a quick tip on how to switch from notification banners to popup alerts on iPhone or iPad, so have a look. Get to feel the nostalgic interface of earlier iOS.

Whenever you receive any notification on your iPhone, it just shows up at the top for few seconds, and then disappears. This is the new way introduced from iOS 7 onwards. Earlier, we used to get a popup on the Home Screen, which wouldn’t go away unless we tap the options. There isn’t any drawback in the new interface, but if you wish to feel the old school days, then there’s a way to switch from notification banners to popup alerts.

The option does not require any additional app or tweak. It’s right there in the Settings app of your iPhone or iPad. The most useful part of this feature is that you can enable popup alerts for any app. Even though the process is quite simple, we have detailed it step-by-step below for better understanding. So do have a look and feel the good old days of earlier iOS.
