Tap on Clear in Message in Lock Screen iOS 10

Tap on Reply to respond. Or tap on Clear to remove the notification.

You can use these simple steps to respond to any notifications from the compatible apps.

One of my favorite features in iOS 10 is the redesigned Lock screen, which has become more user-friendly than ever before. If you want to navigate it with ease, make sure to check out this complete guide.
