Status Bar

The Status Bar appears at the top of the screen. It displays icons indicating that you’ve received notifications (on the left) and icons indicating the phone’s status (on the right), along with the current time.

If you have more notifications than can fit in the Status Bar, the more notifications icon icon prompts you to open the Status Bar to view them all. (See Notification Panel.)
