iOS 11- Customizable Control Center

I love the new features in iOS 11 and I plan to cover several of them in my next few blog entries.  The Customizable Control Center for iPhone and iPad is one of my favorites.

To get to the Control Center, slide up from the bottom.  Use touch to access any one element.  To add or remove items go to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls.

Customizable Control Center

One of the best items in the Control Center is the lock screen option. (see arrow) Now you can use lock screen on a single app and it will stay that way, rather than reformatting your whole phone layout.

Items you can put in your personal Control Center in iOS 11.

Camera Low Power Mode Toggle Notes Screen Recording
Wallet Do Not Disturb While Driving Guided Access Home
Apple TV Remote Flashlight Magnifer Calculator
Alarm Accessibility Shortcuts Stop Watch Voice Memos
Timer Text Size Controls

I think if you play around with this option you may find it to be extremely helpful. Once I started to remember to access it first thing I found it saves me all kinds of time.
