    I'm sick and bored of the default shortcuts. I mean, who uses airplane mode, Bluetooth, DND and orientation lock so often?
    Apple needs to make US choose what shortcuts we want.
    I know it's a BETA, but still... come on

    Because this was definitely worthy of a new thread.

    A multitouch gestures on/off toggle is the only thing keeping me from updating to IOS7 on my iPads...using jailbroken IOS6 until it happens.

    Well I was kinda hoping for this too. Cause I don't like the placement of the volume control.

    It always gets confused with the brightness setting. :(

    The flashlight, alarm and calculator shortcuts are OK though, the camera is so-so

    But where is cellular, 3G and the many Auxo offered...

    They obviously mean a toggle in control center so they didn't have to go through menus in the settings app. Seriously, look at the title of the thread.

    I can understand why they want that. I have a young child who uses games/apps on both my and my wife's iPads. With multitouch gestures he can exit the apps too easily. It is much easier on my iPad, which is jailbroken and has NCsettings installed, to turn off multitouch than it is on my wife's unjailbroken iPad.

    That being said, Apple is unlikely to allow custom shortcuts in the control center though.

    I do. As well as millions.

    Apple knows what users are going into Settings for, therefore that's the reason they put them in Control Center.

    Not. Then billions are using the cellular or the hotspot switches

    I use those often, almost on a daily occurrence.

    So you don't think Apple put the shortcuts in there for a purpose? There's a marketing department for stuff like this. You are not the center of the universe.

    this is apple what u are talking about. they r making the choices for you ;) sucks in cases like this i know.

    btw i use the rotation lock ALL THE TIME :p

    they will never do this, apple is probably too afraid that people may turn it off without actually knowing what it does and than complain about the internet being slow or not working ...

    This thread is about on/off toggles in control center. I'm well aware of the toggle in settings.

    So, which general on/off settings people in general use more often?

    I'm not saying that it wouldn't be good to be able to customize those toggles, but, that aside, which ones are used more often in general?

    Just noticed an annoyance. I'm sat in my lounge at night, with just a lamp on, so it's really dark. The display brightness is on it's maximum setting, so it's hurting my eyes. I drag up control centre. I turn the brightness down slightly so it doesn't hurt my eyes as much, and I swipe control centre away, realising that the display brightens up again and is now too bright. The darkening effect from opening control centre threw my judgement of the display's brightness.

    And/or perhaps auto brightness played some role (after you manually changed the brightness) as well (assuming you have it enabled)?

    Maybe I wasn't clear in my explanation. When you pull control centre up, everything else above control centre dims. So when you alter the brightness in control centre, you have a false reference for how bright the display actually is. So when you then close control centre, the dimmedd effect goes and everything may be brighter than you wanted it to be. (I'm using iPad 2 iOS7 beta 5). On iPhone/iPod touch, control centre takes up most of the display, so maybe the issue I'm raising isn't so much an issue with iPhon/iPod touch.

    I do all the time. When my phone has trouble connecting to 3G, I have to turn airplane mode off and on again. And if my wifi signal becomes weak (this happens very often) I turn wifi off. The shortcuts are nice to have.

    That must be why you can't join a wireless network from CC. :rolleyes:

    That's honestly probably the only thing I like about Android.

    My god, you guys want everything at one touch of a button, how hard is it to go into Settings, by the end of this thread we will have like 20 things in the CC, we'll end up needing a control center for control center.

    hm i can totally see apple offering options for command center, kind of like how apple allows options for their stupid "today" notification center. god i wish i can turn that off.

    what apple will never allow is custom app toggles in notification center.

    I think an actual solution would be to make the wifi button a shortcut to that section of the settings app rather than a toggle. I don't want more stuff; I just want the stuff that's there to be more useful. I almost never turn off wifi — but I do search for networks occasionally.

    The way NCsettings on a jailbroken device does it is ideal in my opinion. Using Wi-Fi as an example, a short press of the toggle turns Wi-Fi on and off and a long press of the toggle opens the Wi-Fi section in settings. Most if not all of the toggles in NCsettings have this behavior.
