Take total control of Control Center with these tips

The Weekender
If you looked at the site this week, you saw loads of news about the release of iOS 14.5 (with its controversial App Tracking Transparency feature) and about Apple’s astonishing earnings.
But did you miss all the useful tips in our Control Center Week series?
For those not familiar, Control Center is one of the most powerful and underutilized features on Apple devices. The how-tos, written by our own Killian Bell, explain how to get the most of this useful toolbox on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac.
In case you didn’t see them all – and there are a lot of them! – we rounded them up in one place.
Time to seize control with Control Center!
– Lewis Wallace, managing editor
P.S. Don’t miss Cult of Mac writer Ed Hardy’s review of AirTag. He’s a longtime Tile user, and was hoping that Apple would revolutionize tracking tags. Unfortunately, it sounds like a bit of a missed opportunity.
