When I go to bed, which happens pretty much around midnight every night, I turn off my iPhone after I’m finished reading my book. I always read on the phone nowadays. It used to be the iPad, but not since I got the larger model phone [6+]. I don’t put it on charge, though, until when I get up in the morning.
Last night, I realised something about myself I’d never thought about before: Before I turn it off, I have to get rid of all those little, red notification numbers on each icon! Up until now, I’ve just done it, without reflecting upon it, but last night, in bed, I replied to an iMessage, so that the red 1 would go away. I regard iMessages as important, so they have a different notification sound than all the others, and now I’ll try to upload a sound file to WordPress for the first time in my life 🙂.
Yay! It worked
Clearly, another, little bout with OCD. Like right now, when I took this screenshot, I have four emails, four scrabble games to be played and so on. No big deal, as I’m not turning it off for many hours … I can just relax, I don’t think there’s anything pressing for my attention.
