One of the most annoying bugs I've experienced thus far with iOS 8 is an issue where notification banners don't seem to want to disappear from the top of the screen. No matter how purposefully I flick them away, they just sit there silently mocking me. From a quick web and Twitter search, I don't seem to be alone. However, I've managed to find a temporary solution that should get rid of particularly persistent notification banners.
How to make stuck notification banners in iOS 8 go away
When a banner gets stuck in iOS 8 at the top of the screen and flicking doesn't seem to rid you of it, press the Home button once instead. I've been experiencing this issue since day one of beta one and unfortunately as of iOS 8.0.2, I'm still experiencing stuck notification banners.
Hopefully this is an issue Apple addresses in an update, but until then, pressing the Home button once when a banner is stuck should make it finally roll away. If you're running iOS 8, how often are you seeing notification banners get stuck on you? Have you found a pattern to what banners are sticking and what ones aren't? Let me know in the comments!
