How to customize and use new iPhone Control Center in iOS 18


Apple has revamped the iPhone Control Center with the new iOS 18. It debuted with iOS 7 over a decade ago and while there have been a few tweaks, it is the first time a major change is coming. The new Control Center has a completely changed layout and is more customizable than before.

One of the biggest changes in the new Control Center customization is it can now be done without going to iPhone Settings. You can now customize these shortcuts directly from the Control Center. Here is everything you need to know about the new iOS 18 user.

Note: iOS 18 is currently in the beta stage. This means it is bound to have bugs and performance issues that will be fixed when a stable version is released. If you are not okay with facing these issues, we suggest you wait for the stable build rollout.

How to Use New iPhone Control Center in iOS 18

Users can use the new iPhone Control Center in iOS 18 in the same way as they have been doing so far. Swipe down from the top right corner and it will be right there for you to use.

Apple has divided quick shortcuts into multiple categories that users can access by swiping up and down after opening Control Center. The first category features commonly used shortcuts like WiFi, cellular data, volume control, brightness control, flashlight, and more. Other categories are for music/media playback, smart home, and connectivity options.
