Apple’s upcoming iOS 17 is rumored to include “major” changes to Control Center on the iPhone, according to a recent leak from the MacRumors forum.
An anonymous source, who accurately divulged details about the dynamic island on the iPhone 14 Pro prior to its official announcement, revealed that iOS 17 will prioritize performance and stability improvements, suggesting that an updated Control Center could be one of the top features of the software update.
Apple is expected to unveil iOS 17 during the annual key Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 5, 2023. After the announcement, the first beta version of the update should be available to developers for testing on the same day. However, the source did not provide any specific information about the planned changes to the Control Center, which has remained largely unchanged since the release of iOS 11 in 2017.
Control Center, which was introduced in iOS 7, will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year. The menu provides users with convenient access to various system functions, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, display brightness and volume. On newer iPhones, such as the iPhone X, users can access the Control Center by swiping down from the top right corner of the screen.
It’s not yet clear how Apple will change the Control Center, but there is speculation that the company could make it more customizable and update the design after a few years of minimal changes. However, it’s important to note that these rumors have yet to be confirmed by other sources, and Apple’s plans may change. While the anonymous source has a proven track record, unverified rumors should always be taken with skepticism.
