I can long press on notifications and directly block it forever or finely tune the App sending it what it is allowed to send etc.
Last time I used an iPhone I still had to double swipe to even dismiss a notification, which is super annoying because most are probably spam.
If Notifications on iOS were as good as on Android I would instantly switch.
Apple improved that on iOS, see the screenshots here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201925
Also, I just aggressively remove apps that try to show spam notifications.
I agree with your point that android is making management much easier though.
These notifications go straight into Notification Center, which means if you never swipe down to look at notifications, you’ll never even see them (They don’t show a banner, or even on the lock screen.) That limits their value to the marketing people looking to juice their engagement numbers with spam push notifications.
And a partial swipe brings up the three notification options, a full swipe dismisses it.
