iOS 11 has a new feature that I’m thrilled to (finally) see – Control Center flexibility.  This allows me to add the features that I use most to Control Center. Changing from seeing the “Timer” to “Alarm” eliminates a step I go through to set my morning alarm – yay!  As a bonus, I get to choose the order my selections appear – having the alarm in lower right-hand corner makes it that much easier.

  • Open Settings App  –> Select Control Center










  • In addition to adding a variety of possibilities (as well as their order of appearance in Control Center), you can also select whether Control Center is accessible in Apps or only on your home screen.
