In my latest column for The Seattle Times, I take a closer look at something that most of us probably use in the most limited way possible: Control Center on the iPhone and iPad. It’s the set of controls that appear when you swipe up from the bottom of the screen (or from the top-right on the iPhone X) that access screen brightness, audio volume, and the all-important flashlight switch. Turns out, Control Center can do much more than that.
I also run through some of the news of the last month, including the new iPad 9.7-inch model, Apple’s renewed push into the education market, and an update on the forthcoming Mac Pro.
Read the column here: A look at some upcoming Apple products, and new ways to use Control Center.
