I'd sure like to know exactly what facilities are in the new Control Center. I cannot tell from the photo available from the Apple show today, and the descriptions mention three or four items that can be "controlled," and says there are others.

Would someone who knows care to post a list of what is in there and what the "toggles" do? Some are obvious, some may not be, and some are unknown, at least to me.

Many thanks!

Do what you need to do. Quick.
Turn on or off Airplane mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Do Not Disturb. Lock your screen’s orientation or adjust its brightness. Play, pause, or skip a song. Connect to AirPlay-enabled devices. And quickly access your flashlight, timer, calculator, and camera.

Thanks. I was hoping for the ability to kill all background apps at once.

I wonder how the call blocking works...through contacts, I guess, eh?

Those two features are important to me.

I'm hoping I will be able to toggle the hotspot on and off. Otherwise I might just have to keep my jailbreak.

keep in mind this is still beta. the 3g on/off and hotspot are pretty nice ideas, i bet someone told them that by now.

My wish list is short...be nice to have a toggle that turns on and off the sound: ringer, incoming emails and messages, et cetera. I keep my phone in an Otterbox and getting to the tiny switch on the side is a PITA.

You can probably use Do Not Disturb for that (which is in the Control Center).
