Does your iPhone 11 have a Control Center? Yes! But unlike iPhones with Home buttons, you don’t swipe up to get to the iPhone 11’s Control Center. To access the Control Center on an iPhone 11, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and any other iPhone without a Home button, you’ll need to swipe down, not up. The notch at the top of your iPhone 11 creates two distinct sides at the top of the screen, and Apple uses this small divide to give you access to both Notifications and Control Center. This tip covers how to access the Control Center but keep an eye out for our tip on how to accessg Notifications without a Home button. Here’s how to get to the Control Center on the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max and earlier iPhones without a Home button.

Before iOS 11 changed the layout of Control Center, the AirDrop options were clearly visible within Control Center. With iOS 11, AirDrop is still there but hidden. If you’re wondering what happened to AirDrop, we’ll help you locate it. AirDrop in Control Center is where you choose who can find you and send you things via AirDrop. Of course, even if anyone can find you, you still have the option to decline. But it’s good to know where AirDrop has disappeared to in Control Center with iOS 11. Here’s how to find AirDrop in iOS 11 on iPhone.

  Recording your iPhone screen can come in handy when you want to share something with a friend or explain instructions for how to use an app. If you want to record your screen, you don't need a special on-screen recorder app or software. To answer the question of how to add a screen recorder function, you can enable the screen recorder feature from the Settings app under the Control Center section. With Screen Recording enabled for your Control Center, you can record your screen easily. If you're wondering, "why can't I screen record with sound?" we'll answer that question, too. An iPhone screen recording will record in-app sounds by default (if your iPhone's ringer is on). But you can choose to also record your voice during the screen recording. Let's get started with how to record your iPhone's screen with or without sound, including system sounds and external sounds.

There's an Apple TV remote app available for download in the iTunes Store, but if your iPhone is running iOS 11 or later, you don't need it; your iPhone's Control Center automatically includes the Apple TV Remote app. The iPhone remote control feature is super convenient, especially if you've lost your Apple TV remote or want to use your iPhone keyboard to enter text in the search field on your Apple TV instead of slowly and painfully swiping through one letter at a time with your remote. Here’s how to set up the Apple TV Remote in your iPhone's Control Center to operate your Apple TV.

Control Center is great because it allows you to quickly do all kinds of useful things like turn Wi-Fi, Airplane Mode, and Do Not Disturb on or off, lock your screen orientation, control playback, adjust volume levels, open your phone's calculator, and use your iPhone as a flashlight. However, some people worry about privacy when Control Center is accessible from Lock Screen (although, rest assured, nothing private can be opened without unlocking your phone), and others get tired of accidentally opening Control Center in an app while playing a game. Which is why Apple made it possible to turn off access to Control Center from Lock screen and within apps. Here’s how to disable access to Control Center from Lock Screen.

You've probably heard of AirDrop before, but you may be wondering what AirDrop is, how it works, and of course, how to use it! AirDrop is a feature that allows you to wirelessly send and receive photos, videos, websites, locations, and more with nearby Apple devices running on iOS 7 or later. You can also share with Macs running on Yosemite or later if your iPhone runs on iOS 8 or later. For AirDrop to work, both WiFi and Bluetooth must be turned on, and you must be signed into your iCloud account. I love using Airdrop to easily transfer pictures from my iPhone to my Mac. Airdrop is also a great way to share photos with friends after you've attended an event together. Let's get started learning how to enable AirDrop on our iPhones, and how to use it.

Control Center in iOS 10 got a big upgrade that divides the single page into multiple tabs you can swipe through. And if you have Homekit devices paired with your iPhone, you'll be happy to use the new Home app, which allows you to easily organize and manage all of your HomeKit devices within a single app. Better yet, part of the redesigned Control Center is a tab that's dedicated to your HomeKit devices. When you open Control Center, simply swipe left twice and you'll be able to change the temperature in your home, turn the lights on, unlock a door, and whatever else the HomeKit devices you own can do. Here's how to access your Smart Home from Control Center with iOS 10.

3D Touch is here to stay. With iOS 10, 3D Touch can be found in a lot more places, performing more functions. This includes Control Center on iPhone. Control Center is accessed when you swipe up from the bottom of your screen. Along the bottom of Control Center are four icons that allow you to jump into using important features: flashlight, timer, calculator, and camera. With iOS 9, each icon performed a singular function. However the iOS 10 Control Center now uses 3D Touch to provide quick action options for making the flashlight more or less bright, setting the timer at a preset time, copying results from Calculator, and jumping directly into the Camera mode you need. Here's how to use 3D Touch in iOS 10 Control Center on iPhone.

What is portrait orientation and what is portrait orientation lock? On iPhone, when you tilt your device on its side, the screen follows and rotates to landscape orientation. Turning on portrait orientation locks the screen so that no matter which way your iPhone is turned, the screen will stay in place. Instead of your iPhone screen flipping between portrait and landscape view, you can use portrait orientation lock. We’ll cover how to lock your iPhone screen and how to use a small workaround to lock rotation on iPad as well. And just in case your screen won't rotate, we'll also tell you how to unlock screen rotation on iPhone and iPad. Here’s how to lock your iPhone or iPad screen with portrait orientation.
