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.

On previous models of iPhone, you could force restart your iPhone (known as a hard restart) by holding the Home button and your Sleep/Wake button at the same time. However, the iPhone 7 Home button isn’t really a button at all. It uses Haptic feedback to create the feeling of pressing a button. Perhaps this caused an issue with using the Home button as a means to restart the device. The iPhone 7 or 7 Plus requires you hard restart your iPhone with different buttons this time around. Here’s how to force restart your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus.

I use reading glasses for some things, a concession to middle age, but fortunately I don't ever need them when I'm using my iPad. That's because I've adjusted the settings so that the text is larger and bolded, making it much easier to see. These settings apply to all of Apple's apps and to third-party apps that support Apple's Dynamic Type. Ever since iOS 8 was introduced, Apple has gathered text size, bold, view, and brightness into a single panel in Settings.
