Control Center is one of the major features of iOS that provides quick access to essential functionality, such as settings toggles, media playback controls, Night Shift, and much more.
The biggest changes in iOS 10 are clear as day when you pick up your iPhone. The Lock screen is completely redesigned. There are widgets everywhere and 3D Touch is much more pronounced, across the OS. We tell you how to use all the new iOS 10 features in the Lock screen, Home screen and Control Center.
Whether you’re brewing a cup of coffee, doing some cooking, or just taking a nap, we all need to set up timers sometimes. And iOS 10 makes this process ridiculously easy, thanks to the new 3D Touch Quick Actions for the Timer icon in Control Center. You can now set a timer for 1 minute, 5 minutes, 20 minutes or 1 hour without even unlocking your iPhone! Here’s how it works.
iOS 10 has a newly redesigned Control Center. Everything’s bigger and there’s much more room. But at first sight, you might be thinking, where did my media controls go? How do I change my output? Here’s where it all went.
Introduced with iOS 7 back in 2013, Control Center gave iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users quick access to useful controls, toggles, and shortcuts for the first time. It has continued to receive tweaks and improvements since then, and while there’s no doubt it’s awesome in its current form, it still needs work.
With less than a month to go, we wanted to set our expectations for iOS 9. The ability to customize Control Center is one of the features that I hope makes it to iOS 9’s feature list.
I watch plenty of music videos, funny web clips, and Netflix shows all on my iPhone. iOS 8’s Control Center makes it easy to control this media from my home screen and lock screen. But if you want a little added privacy when it comes to what you’re watching, you may want to look into this free tweak.
