Forum Question: How Do I Turn Off Notifications for the Clock (Timer) App?

Before iOS 10: I have the Clock app open and am using the Timer. The timer goes off and I press the cancel button and the timer stops.

Now: I have the Clock app open and am using the Timer. The timer goes off and a notification appears. I can’t press the cancel button (on the open app) because of the notification. Now I have to swipe down on the notification and press the stop button. I would rather just not have the notification. Thanks

    I doesn’t appear to be an option. You have to deal with the notification. You can also use 3D Touch if you have a newer iPhone and get to the stop button that way. But it is still two taps, as opposed to the swipe and tap.
    Maybe suggest to Apple that you want to be able to turn off the Timer with a single tap somehow? Use their feedback form: http://www.apple.com/feedback/

    Thanks Gary. I submitted it to Apple.
