We recently listed some of the common issues that emerged with iOS 10.2, but there are plenty new issues reported every day. One of the problems that established itself as a great annoyance is the malfunction of the notifications feature.
This renders the device unusable in the opinion of many users. We prepared some possible solutions so you can try and fix the problem. At least until the Apple addresses the issue and makes their devices usable for all the costumers who upgraded their OS.
