Ios – How to clear the remote notification in your app


Is there a way to clear the remote notification from the notification banner when swiping down from the top of the iPhone screen. I tried setting the badge number to zero:

application.applicationIconBadgeNumber = 0 

in delegate didFinishLaunchingWithOptions, and didReceiveRemoteNotification, but it did not clear the notifications. Thanks.

Best Solution

In iOS 10, above all solutions are depreciated

'cancelAllLocalNotifications()' was deprecated in iOS 10.0: Use UserNotifications Framework's -[UNUserNotificationCenter removeAllPendingNotificationRequests]

Use the below code to cancel notification and reset Badge count

For iOS 10, Swift 3.0

cancelAllLocalNotifications deprecated from iOS 10.

@available(iOS, introduced: 4.0, deprecated: 10.0, message: "Use UserNotifications Framework's -[UNUserNotificationCenter removeAllPendingNotificationRequests]")
open func cancelAllLocalNotifications()

You will have to add this import statement,

import UserNotifications

Get notification center. And perform the operation like below

application.applicationIconBadgeNumber = 0 // For Clear Badge Counts
let center = UNUserNotificationCenter.current()
center.removeAllDeliveredNotifications() // To remove all delivered notifications
center.removeAllPendingNotificationRequests() // To remove all pending notifications which are not delivered yet but scheduled.

If you want to remove single or multiple specific notifications, you can achieve it by below method.

center.removeDeliveredNotifications(withIdentifiers: ["your notification identifier"])

Hope it helps..!!
