Reorganize Control Center to make favorite tools easier to find [Pro tip]

Control Center Pro Tips WeekWe want to help you master Control Center, one of the most powerful and underutilized features on Apple devices. Cult of Mac’s Control Center Pro Tips series will show you how to make the most of this useful toolbox on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac.

Make your favorite Control Center tools and shortcuts easier to find by reorganizing and cleaning up your Control Center window. It’s easy on iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch — and we’ll show you how.

You may have found that there are many Control Center buttons, enabled by default, that you never use. And that the ones you interact with regularly are at the bottom of your Control Center window.

It’s quick and easy to change that inside iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS.

Reorganize and clean up Control Center

These are the steps you need to follow on iPhone and iPad:

  1. Open the Settings app and tap Control Center.
  2. In the list of Included Controls, tap the red minus button alongside any you don’t use, then tap Remove.
  3. Scroll to the More Controls list and tap the green plus button alongside any you want to add to Control Center.
  4. You’ll notice there are three lines alongside all the items you’ve chosen to include in your Control Center options. You can tap and hold those three lines and then drag any item up or down the list to change its position in Control Center. Those at the top of the list will appear first, so put the tools you use most often here.

  1. Open Control Center by swiping up from the bottom of the screen while at the watch face.
  2. Scroll to the bottom and tap the Edit button.
  3. Tap and hold any Control Center button, then drag it to where you want to place it before letting go.
  4. Use the red minus button to remove any tools you don’t use.
  5. When you’re finished, tap the Done button at the bottom of the screen.

The Best

Infinitely better than plastic/vinyl cases I have always used. Great to touch, good hand, smart look and works flawlessly.

No Items in Envelope !

yes i had received the shipping package that was a bubble envelope , the corner was torn with no items from my order . the items in my order was roughly $ 12.00 .
i would had paid more for a better packaging and delivery option. Keep the money , i'll never do business again with your company and will let others know of my experience.
you guys gotta do better, not just for myself but for others

Good afternoon, I am extremely sorry about this. Please can you email me, adel@cultofmac.com with an attached image of the package so we can get this sorted out for you as soon as possible. Many thanks Adel.

Watch protective band

Very comfortable, fits well and provides good protection for my watch. I highly recommend this watch band if you work or just play hard while wearing your Apple Watch.

Nice Band! Can you hear it?

This band is quality for the money. Compared with other bands from Amazon, this one is worth it all the way.
I hope the next iteration brings the black buckle for my black ss iWatch.

Definitely Recommend

I love this case, it feels great and gives the phone a sturdy feel without being a bulky mess like some other top brands. If you’re on the fence about it, just get it. You won’t regret it.
