How to Customize iOS 11 Control Center

With iOS 11, the Cupertino giant has introduced some revolutionary features that were only available to jailbreak users up till now. Once such feature is Control Center customization.

How does iOS 11 Control Center work?

As you already know, Apple doesn’t like people tinkering around with their operating system. Only jailbroken devices could avail of extra customizations thus far.

However, Apple is looking to change the status quo with its latest mobile operating system.

Control Center in iOS 11

iOS 11 comes with a revolutionary modular Control Center design. This is the very first time Apple is using a “modular” design and allowing Control Center customization.

Here’s the full list of all functions and aspects that are customizable.

  • Torch
  • Camera
  • Alarm
  • Low Power Mode
  • Accessibility Shortcuts
  • Apple TV Remote
  • Calculator
  • Do Not Disturb While Driving
  • Guided Access
  • Magnifier
  • Notes
  • Screen Recording
  • Stopwatch
  • Text Size
  • Timer
  • Voice Memos
  • Wallet

Although the new CC is highly customizable, there are a few toggles and functions that you cannot remove.

For example, there are no customization options for WiFi, Mobile data, Bluetooth, Airplane mode, Brightness and Volume sliders, AirPlay, and Music.

Here’s how you can customize the Control Center and get the best possible combination that suits your requirements.

Step 3 Select the Customize Controls option.

Step 4 You will now be able to add or delete whatever you want to. Simply tap the red button to remove and the green button to add a control. You can also organize the included controls by tapping and moving them up or down.

My setup is really simple. I have only included the Torch, Camera, Alarm, and Low Power Mode controls along with the stock default controls.
