How to Customize the Control Center on Your iPhone

In the same way you organize widgets in the Today View, you can choose certain features of your iPhone to be quickly accessible from the Control Center. This also allows you to remove Control Center functions that you might never use and replace them with something better. Here’s how to customize the Control Center on your iPhone.

How to Customize Control Center

  • First, swipe down from the top right corner of your screen (or up from the bottom of your screen if you have an iPhone 8 or older) to open the Control Center.
  • Open the Settings app.
  • Tap Control Center.
  • Select Customize Controls.
  • To remove a control, tap the red circle next to the feature you want to remove.
  • Under More Controls, tap the green circle to add the feature to your Control Center.
  • Under Include, you can tap and hold the three horizontal lines on the right of each feature to rearrange the features and how they show up in your Control Center.

I love that the Apple TV Remote is an option, but the one I added and use the most is, of course, Low Power Mode.
