iOS 11 launches today, and it promises to give you more control than ever before.
Control Center still features the same tools you’re used to, including flashlight, airplane mode, and AirPlay mirroring. But you can now add a whole slew of new shortcuts and features, and customize the layout to suit your style, and we’ll show you how to do it.
If you haven’t downloaded iOS 11 yet, you can do so in Settings, or by connecting your device to a computer and launching iTunes. Make sure the device is connected to wifi, and that it has 2 GB free. Once you’ve updated, here’s how to customize your Control Center.
1. Choose your buttons
To make your Control Center your own, hop into Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls. Under More Controls , press Add Button next to any button you want to add. To remove a button, tap—you guessed it—Remove Button under the unwanted control.
2. Customize your apps
In your control center, press and hold any button to see options for modifying the feature. You can change your flashlight’s brightness, set timers, change music volume, and more.
