    Swipe from left-to-right on the date at the top of the Cover Sheet to view other notifications such as weather, reminders, Siri app suggestions, and more. Swipe from right-to-left on the date at the top to return to app notifications.

  2. Swipe from left to right on the date/time at the top of Cover Sheet to access the Today tab to view information in widgets that pertain to today, such as Reminders, weather, stock prices, Calendar items, and other items you’ve selected to display in Cover Sheet.

    You select which widgets appear in the Today tab by tapping the Edit button at the bottom of the Today screen, then selecting the items you want to see. Tap Done to return to the Today screen.

  3. Swipe from right to left on the date/time at the top of Cover Sheet to visit the Notifications section to see all notifications that you set up in the Settings app.

    You’ll see only notifications that you haven’t responded to, deleted in the Notifications section, or haven’t viewed in their originating app.
