Notification Center on the Lockscreen

One of the most powerful and requested features added in iOS 5 is Notification Center, a tool that lets you control how your iPhone's apps send you notifications about missed calls, tweets, events, and many other things. In previous versions of the iOS, notifications only appeared on app icons (with the exception of text message and missed call alerts); now, though, you can set notifications to appear in many different areas of your device.

As the screenshot above shows, you can configure Notification Center to display all kinds of alerts on your iPhone or iPod touch's lock screen, allowing you to see important updates without even unlocking your device.

Read on to learn all about the options available in Notification Center, how to configure them, and how to use other aspects of the feature.
