The control center first appeared in iOS 7 and was Apple’s response to competition from Android and the jailbreak community. In the eleventh version of the mobile operating system, presented at the WWDC 2017 conference, the Control Center was significantly redone.

Of course, the changes affected not only the appearance of the Control Center. By analogy with iOS 10, many elements of the Control Center, including the flashlight power button, were able to adjust the brightness of the light by pressing and holding the shortcut.
The user can choose between four modes of light intensity, ideal for various situations.
The low-intensity mode (first division) is best suited in cases where too bright light whitens everything around and it is very difficult to examine small objects at close range. In addition, a lower brightness of the flashlight will save battery power of the smartphone. Mode medium and high intensity should be selected if necessary to illuminate objects in the distance.
It is noteworthy that other elements of the Control Center received similar functionality. For example, by long pressing the camera icon, you can select the shooting mode,
and pressing and holding the timer icon allows you to set the required countdown without launching the Clock application.
About all the features of the Control Center, as well as about configuring this iOS element, we described in detail in this material.
