Control Center gives you instant access to the camera, AirDrop, AirPlay, timer, audio playback controls, and other handy features. You can adjust the brightness, lock the screen in portrait orientation, turn wireless services on or off, and turn on AirDrop to exchange photos and other items with nearby iOS 7 devices that support AirPlay.
Open Control Center:
Swipe up from the bottom edge of any screen (even the Lock screen).
Tap one of the five toggle icons along the top. Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb, and Orientation Lock.
Move the brightness slider below the toggle icons to the left or right to decrease or increase the brightness of your display.
Control Media Playback:
You can use the volume slider, scrubbing slider, and the play/pause, forward, and back buttons to control your media playback. Tapping a song title will open the music app.
Tapping the AirDrop button will let you make your device visible to everyone or just your contacts.
Tapping the AirPlay button will let you select a device to stream video to.
Tapping an icon in the bottom row will quickly launch the flashlight, timer, calculator, or camera.
Close Control Center.
Swipe down, tap the top of the screen, or press the Home button.
