IOS Control Center 11 what's new?

Everything is new in the Control Center of iOS 11, Apple not only radically changes the design, it gives a plus of functionality that many users will be grateful for.

All on one screen

In iOS 10 the iPhone control center could be a bit confusing and inconvenient for some users as it showed the main settings on the first screen but if you wanted to access the music controls you had to swipe to access a New screen. The thing was complicated even more if you had some device controlled with HomeKit since a new screen was added.
With iOS 11 everything is simpler, the new control center shows all the options available in a single screen. And when we say all are all, since although we can now put up to 17 shortcuts in the control center  you do not need to move from one screen to another, they are all in the same, although if you put many you will have to scroll down to see them all .

Although for now the most that you will see in the screen of the control center of the iPhone are 17 icons the functionality is much greater, since many of them will offer you more functions to do 3D Touch on them.

Share internet and mobile data

At last we can quickly access two options that many demanded. With iOS 11 Apple adds to the control center a button to share internet and another to activate or deactivate the mobile data quickly.

Non-configurable fixed accesses

Even though it is very configurable, the iOS 11 Control Center has certain fixed sections in which it is not possible to put or remove accesses or change them.
They are basically the same ones we had in the old Control Center:
  • Connections: The section where we find the Bluetooth buttons, AirDrop airplane mode etc.
  • Music Widget
  • Screen rotation lock
  • Do not bother
  • AirPlay
  • Brightness of the screen
  • Volume
All of these options will always be displayed at the top of the Control Center and we will not be able to change them.

How to set up the iOS Control Center 11

When you install iOS 11, by default, the Control Center will display the same initial options that you had in iOS 10, although as we mentioned a few lines above, they are all presented in a single page.
The row of widgets on the bottom can be configured: change the position icons and put or remove the ones you want.
To configure the iOS 11 control center follow these simple steps:
Step 1 - Enter Settings and then choose the Control Center option

Step 2  Now you are going to see two Widgets lists, the ones above are the ones you already have activated in the control center, the ones below that you can add. Touch the + or  buttons next to each widget depending on whether you want to put them or remove them.

What is the purpose of each of the control center options and what functionality do they have?

It will be helpful to know what each of the options you have available to customize your Control Center. Remember that the same icon can do several things if you activate the 3D Touch on it or you hold it for a few seconds, if you do not have a device with 3D Touch.
LANTERN
We are not going to discover anything new with this ... It gives light !.
Functions with 3D Touch:  When using 3D Touch on this icon appears a slider to regulate the intensity of light. As you leave the intensity when you turn off the flashlight will be the one you have the next time you turn it on.

A quick tap on the icon opens the clock application in the timer section.
3D Touch Functions : When 3D Touch covers the timer icon a slider appears to adjust the time, the first 5 levels of the timer increase one minute the time, from there they are uploaded every 5 minutes. From this same time setting screen you can start the timer without entering the clock application.

This is one of the control center options that I like the most, and if you have an Apple TV sure you will love it too.
3D Touch Functions: When doing 3D Touch appears a virtual control with which you can handle your Apple TV 4 exactly the same as if you had in hand the Siri Remote, a real pass.

3D Touch functions: Activating  this icon of the control center will leave the options that you have configured in the section "Quick function" of accessibility "

CHRONOMETER
Exactly the same functions as the alarm widget, you can open the Clock App in the section to create alarm, start timer or start timer.
GUIDED ACCESS
This is an accessibility option that lets you choose how your iPhone will behave when you leave it to someone. For example, if you leave a child to play a game and activate guided access, you can tell the iPhone to stop responding to the home button or even disable some part of the touch screen so it does not respond by touching it.
The guided access icon in the control center starts this function immediately.
MAGNIFYING GLASS
Another accessibility option that is now very close at hand. The magnifying glass is a camera with which you can take photos and enlarge them to see in detail text or other things. It is something quite spectacular and very useful at certain times for people who do not walk very well from the view.
DO NOT DISTURB WHEN DRIVING
A novelty of iOS 11, if you activate this mode you will avoid notifications, calls or anything that may distract you while driving. You can activate it from the Control Center and turn it off automatically when you stop driving.
LOW CONSUMPTION MODE
Quick access to power saving mode, you can now activate it whenever you want in a second, without entering the settings of the iPhone.
