Edit Control Centre on iPhone and iPad

Last update:

The iPhone and iPad Control Centre is a very useful feature that provides immediate access to several essential functions and settings of the device, facilitating its daily use. This feature is especially valuable in situations where speed and efficiency are required, such as quickly adjusting the volume or activating Do Not Disturb mode during a meeting.

To access Control Centre, iPhone users with Face ID and iPad simply swipe down from the top right corner of the screen. However, on iPhone models with a home button, access is done by swiping up from the bottom of the screen.

Once opened, the Control Centre offers quick access to a variety of controls and applications that you use every day. These include airplane, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modes, which allow you to quickly manage your device's connections. It also offers easy control of brightness and volume, which is useful in different lighting and sound environments. For music lovers, it provides an easy way to control audio playback without opening the music app.

Other accessible features include Do Not Disturb mode, which is crucial for avoiding interruptions during work or rest, and Screen Orientation Lock, which is especially useful when reading or watching videos. Additionally, the Control Centre provides quick access to tools such as the flashlight, calculator, and camera, as well as other frequently used applications or functions. For those using smart home devices, Control Centre also offers controls for HomeKit and other connected devices, as long as they are configured.

The most notable thing about the Control Centre is its customization capacity. Users can tailor it to their individual needs and preferences through iPhone settings. This means you can add or remove controls depending on what you use most.

Why prevent the control centre from being displayed with the iPhone locked?

Recently, a method has been published that thieves can use to activate airplane mode right after stealing an iPhone. It is a problem for someone else to activate airplane mode without entering the unlock code, or without using TouchID to verify the fingerprint, or FaceID to identify the owner.

When you activate airplane mode, it will not be possible to make calls for the iPhone to ring, nor locate it via the internet. Therefore, it is recommended to activate this setting. Although we must admit that it is a bit annoying, since it requires us to enter the code, or recognize our face or fingerprint, every time we want to open the control centre. Additionally, there are times when we have our face covered, or we use the iPhone at an angle that is not pointed at our face.
