Apple has given us a real, customizable Control Center with iOS 11. Right now, all you can do is edit the controls below the first 4 rows. Apple gives you a dozen or so new controls that you can add to the bottom of the new Control Center.
The Control Center in iOS 11 is back to being a single page affair. It now slides up as a page, taking on the entire screen and blurring the background. You can scroll through it as well. You’ll find Home, Now Playing and toggles as tiles here.
The more interesting part is what you can add controls below the tiles – custom controls.
Open the Settings app and go to the Control Center section. Here, you’ll find a UI similar to the Today View widget editing screen. To add a control, tap on the green + button. To reorder a control, grab the handle at the end of the control’s section and slide it up and down.
The first 4 rows are non-editable. Everything you add will be below these rows.
Finally, you can just tap the new battery icon widget in the Control Center to enable Low Power Mode. When tapped, it animated and turns into a yellow shade.
Magnifier was one of the hidden but incredibly useful accessibility features in iOS 10. It would turn the Camera into a magnifier, giving you a 10x zoom so you could blow up the small text. Now, there’s a shortcut for it right in the Control Center.
There’s a full-fledged Apple TV remote in the Control Center. 3D touch the Apple TV icon and it will open up. You’ll have a big trackpad, menu button, and play/pause controls.
This control adds a new functionality to iOS that we’ve been waiting for. Tap on the Screen Recording control and you’ll start recording the screen. Once you’re done, tap on the blue bar on the top and confirm from the popup to stop. The video file will be saved in Videos album in Photos app. If you 3D Touch the Screen Recording controls, you get the option to disable pics.
