How to customize the Today screen on Notification Center for iPhone and iPad

How to customize the Today screen in iOS 7 Notification Center

The Today screen in Notification Center lets you see weather conditions, what's on your calendar, and a few other things at a quick glance with only a gesture and a tap. But what if you don't care about stocks and don't want them cluttering up your Today screen? What if weather just isn't your thing? Luckily you can customize Notification Center's Today screen to show just what matters to you!

How to personalize the Today section of Notification Center on iPhone and iPad

  1. Launch Settings from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Now tap on Notification Center.
  3. Under Today View you can turn items Off that you don't want to appear at all.
  4. If you want to rearrange items, just tap the Edit button in the upper right hand corner and then drag the moveable items around where you want them.

That's all there is to it. I personally don't ever use the stock ticker so it's the first thing I usually disable after a clean restore. What parts of the Today screen do you disable, if any? Let us know!

This was excellent but I was looking for how to turn on whether in my notification center. Can you help with that?
The fourth edition of IOS 7.1 beta has been released for developers registered with Apple. source : http://www.smartphonestutorials.com/fourth-edition-ios-7-1-beta/
Calendar at notification center don't show all day events!!!!!!!!!! I miss the list of tasks of the old notification center. And the weather info with the drawing was cool.

After you turn on weather in notification center settings, you have to use the stock weather app just once (and allow it to know your location). Then weather will begin to show up in your notification center.

Ally! Any idea of any Jailbreaks that will bring back the old weather widget from iOS 6?

WPSteve says:

I always disable stocks. I do miss the old weather widget too, and wish we had more options than just the calendar.

I only disable stocks too, but I miss the current weather conditions from iOS6. Now it only tells you the high and the upcoming weather. It would be nice if it would add a "it is currently..."

Wow, that customization is awesome ._.

I honestly miss the quick Facebook/Twitter buttons. I hope at some point they bring them back (and add the iMessage one, like in Mavericks).

Huh. I just realized from looking at the screenshots that I don't see Fantastical on my Notifications list. Had to go to the app to enable it. Hahaha, thanks.
