The redesigned control centre is one of our favourite features on iOS 11. By swiping up from any screen, you can switch off/on mobile data and even hotspot easily without having to dig through settings. On top of that, you also get your usual Airplane mode, WiFi and Bluetooth toggle as well.

As iOS 11 starts rolling out to supported iPhone and iPad models, you’ll also get a new image and video format that’s very efficiency on storage.
