The iPhone Control Center is a box of very useful tools accessible in just a few steps. If you want to get more out of your iPhone, today we will explain what tools are available to you, what you can do with them and how you can activate them. It is a very simple process, and in a few steps you will have a giant fan with which to control almost all your iPhone from the same place.
What you can do with the Control Center
The Control Center is an area of the iPhone with which you have many controls of your iPhone at hand, so that you do not have to go looking for them one by one, and activate or deactivate them within the applications. This is divided into two parts: on the one hand, Apple’s predefined options and, on the other, what you can modify to your liking. Between them, they make up a total of up to 34 tools available. The iPhone predefined commands are as follows:
- Airplane mode
- Mobile data
- Personal hotspot (share mobile data)
- music control
- Screen lock
- Share screen
- modes of concentration
With these options you can turn all these options on and off, without having to go to the settings and modify each of them individually. Now, when it comes to additional controls, the iPhone has been significantly expanding its functions and shortcuts through this panel. Currently, in the latest version of the system, iOS 16, we have the following tools which we can remove and add:
- Screen recording: allows you to record the screen of our iPhone and all its actions.
- low power mode
- dark mode
- Hearing: allows you to control ambient sound levels, with decibel counter
- Code scanner: scan QR codes and open them automatically
- Magnifying Glass – Use the camera to magnify images and take quick photos of them, which are then deleted
- Sound recognition: helps distinguish sounds from our environment
- Music recognition: the Shazam application, without having to install it, recognizes music by pressing a button and it appears in the notification center.
- Guided access: for people with vision problems, the iPhone helps to move around the interface
- Apple TV Remote: you can control Apple TV with the iPhone screen
- Wallet: quick access to our bank cards, tickets and tickets.
- Shortcuts: accessible commands that are configured from Settings > Accessibility
- Quick note: allows you to write a note directly
- Notes: Open the Notes app
- voice notes
- Text Size: Increase or decrease typography throughout the iPhone
These tools correspond to shortcuts and shortcuts to application-specific functions. Timer, Alarm, and Stopwatch direct you to those specific features in the Clock app. Shortcuts, Hearing, Magnifier, Guided Access, Sound Recognition, and Text Size are shortcuts to accessibility features. Code Scanner and Magnifier are specific and separate features of the main Camera app. The iPhone Control Center allows you to have up to 34 tools and commands in the same place, which can be activated just by clicking on its icon. To add or remove tools, we have to go to Settings > Control Center and modify these in the Included controls section. There we can modify and customize this interface to our liking.
