Apple has just released iOS 7 to the public. Here's a look at the new Control Center.

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).

Toggle Settings:
Tap one of the five toggle icons along the top. Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb, and Orientation Lock.

Set Brightness:
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.

Launch Apps:
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.

Take a look at the video below to see how Control Center works. You might also want to check out the new Notification Center, Multitasking Switcher, and AirDrop.

Finally they make the control center that should be there years ago, but then they decide it's a good idea to not add data and location toggles. WTF!!! I start regretting that I lost my jailbreak for this useless s**t

There is no air play button on my iPad either (Third Generation) - I=Air Play is not suppord on the iPad except for the 4th generation.. that is the only iPad that has airplay ability. Here is the apple link if you would like to verify. Personally, I think it is crap, because when I try to connect my iPad to a TV I am told that I have to turn off airplay for it to work... and my 3rd generation HAS no airplay according to apple... so what gives? to turn off air play in ios 7&source=web&cd=4&ved=0CEQQFjAD&url=,d.b2I&cad=rjt

If only they can add those toggles like location services or data or even switch off LTE.

It's a big step in the right direction. But they need to add a toggle for location services and data.
