How to get email notifications in notification center on your iPad

What do you use your Notification Center for? The answer seems to be a no-brainer: notifications. However, did you know that some iPad users never tailor their notifications to provide up-to-the minute, relevant information? While it is no secret that iOS 7 provides some important updates to the Apple services we know and love, some users do not make the most out of their Notification Center.

One way to do this is to make Notification Center important to you in a way that it may or may not matter to someone else. Are you a person that wants to have your daily plans listed so that you won’t forget important meetings? iOS 7’s Notification Center provides what you want. But what if you don’t have a lot of plans each day and only need your Notification Center for – say, checking email or staying on the winning end when it comes to juggling your email count? If this is you, then it’s time to update your Notification Center and put it to better use. You can set up your Notification Center to publish your most recent emails so that you never miss an email again.
