Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2024) is almost here with arms open to embrace countless announcements of updates and betterments of the company's expansive product and service lineup. 

Instead of giving you a sneak peak into everything you might see during the keynote, Gadinsider is here to talk at length about the iOS 18 which has long gripped the iPhone landscape for various reasons. 

New Control Center on iOS 18

In light of a freshly shone rumour, the software update will welcome iPhones with a redesigned Control Center, with its primarily standing out feature being its ability to locate controls on separate pages.

This departure from the single-page view, currently iOS update offers available, suggests that Apple is eyeing for the discarded design which it first introduced in iOS 10, to span the Control Center in multiple pages. 

This remarkable revival of an old Control Center design will let users swipe between three different sets of controls. The only downside here is docked in these controls' disability to be customised. 

Create multi-page Control Center in iOS 18

According to Mark Gurman's recent report wherein he shed extensively on the upcoming iOS 18, the new iOS update will have more powerful customisable options than the current iOS 17, which only allows users to make amendments to particular controls of the Control Center by going to Settings, then Control Center.

However, with certain controls — including the Now Playing, Focus, and connectivity controls — unable to be customised, the new iOS update will let this happen.

Similar to when users enter ‘jiggle mode’ on the iPhone’s Home screen, iOS 18 will allow rearrangement, addition, and deletion of controls right from the Control Center interface, without requiring them to head to Settings first.
