YOU might be missing out on more than a dozen iPhone perks.
It’s possible to unlock plenty of clever iPhone hacks in a matter of seconds.
You’ve probably seen your iPhone’s Control Center hundreds of times.
It’s the place where you turn on Airplane Mode or activate your screen rotation lock.
There are plenty of buttons for you to use in the Control Center – but you can add even more.
You may want to add the Stopwatch, a quick-start for Low Power Mode, or a Shazam button to quickly recognize songs.
Getting to your Control Center is different depending on your iPhone model.
On an iPhone with Face ID, swipe down from the top-right edge of the screen.
For an iPhone with a Home button, swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
Here’s the full list of available Control Center controls in alphabetical order:
- Accessibility Shortcuts
- Announce Notifications
- Apple TV Remote
- Code Scanner
- Dark Mode
- Guided Access
- Low Power Mode
- Music Recognition
- Quick Note
- Screen Recording
- Sound Recognition
- Text Size
- Voice Memos
Adding or removing these controls is very simple.
Simply go into your Apple Settings app and tap on Control Center.
If you see a new control that you like, simply tap the green plus icon on the left.
This will move the button up into the Included Controls section.
If you change your mind later, simply tap the red minus button on the control that you want to remove.
It’s also possible to re-order the Included Controls by tapping and dragging the hamburger icon (three horizontal lines) to the right of the buttons.
