The good news is Apple’s latest iOS release, iOS 11, includes a new feature that allows you, the user, to decide which features you want in Control Center. Of course, that’s only good news if you know how to add those quick-access buttons for your favorite tools. Well, we're going to show you!
Update to iOS 11
Making sure you have the iOS 11 update Apple released in Fall 2017 is the first step toward adding new buttons to your Control Center. You can check to see if you've updated by opening Settings, then General, then Software Update.
Update hasn't happened yet? Then make sure your phone is plugged in—or has at least 50% power left—and tap Download & Install. Now relax, because the update might take a while.
