    With all the money/developers/resources and after a wholeeeeee year they come up with that? Are you kidding me?

    All they had to do is copy this concept literally...

    There was nothing that I really saw today in the preview that showcased evolving force touch to bring it to more things.

    Cool concept. Aesthetically Apple's is worse, but fuctionaly it has the same features (other than dark mode)

    well but it's Apple who keeps touting their looks over functionality. so Apple has done nothing as far as CC is concerned to make it better.

    Very disappointed with the look too. It's great that it's customizable, but it's really ugly and not Apple-like at all.

    I usually use CC to control Home, looks like I'm better off using Siri, given that the time taken to do something is not so much less than asking Siri.

    I just wish they refine the look of control centre. I quite like how it behaves and allows limited customisation now, having used it for a day both on my 9.7 iPad Pro and my iPhone 7 plus. But oh so ugly, its horrendous to look at, especially on the iPad.

    In fact, the iPad features are actually quite usable, I thought some of them were gimmicks, but I am already using the drag and drop functions, the hovering split view, they all are super useful. haven't experimented with the pen yet though.

    OSX 10.13, however, was the disappointment. I do not even realise I have changed over, which is not a bad thing, but there is not one single feature on it (except the file system in the background, which also to me seems exactly the same speed on the 15" tbMBP, with some programs behaving erratically but expected. (of course, this belongs in the other thread, but thought might as well add a few lines :))

    I don't see taste or innovation here. Definitely, Apple should just pay to this guy some money for the AWESOME concept and adapt this into iOS 11. This is really disappointed.

    That concept is 100x better than the CC in iOS 11, not even close...

    Anything Sam Beckett does is better than Apple's implantation. Not surprising.

    Visually, that concept is much better. I don't think the long-press-to-rearrange would be a good idea. For one thing, it would get in the way of using long press to mimic Force Touch on older iPhones. And I think it would be too easy to trigger when Force Touching. But they could use the current add-and-reorder approach in settings with that video's look.

    I'm hoping that they've just worked on function first, and that they're going to improve the aesthetics in subsequent betas.

    I thought the new one was pretty ugly at first, but now it's grown on me. I do think it doesn't quite match up with the aesthetics of the rest of the system (it reminds me more of iOS 7 than of 10), but I no longer dislike it. The added functionality and one-page design are welcome.

    Let's be real....if a UI/UX designer in another company comes up with a control centre UI (or something similar to a control centre) as in this new iOS 11 a.k.a cluster**** of toggles in one screen he/she can pack his bags and look for another job.
    But ofcourse, not at Apple HQ.

    When those designers at Apple HQ were ready with the revamp of the iOS 11 control centre they looked at eachother and said to eachother:
    ''wow, yes...this is it...it took us 11 (!!!) versions of iOS, but this is the most beautiful useful control centre we ever created, we can be very proud, heck its designed by Apple, so its amazing anyway!!"

    To me, this new Control Centre is a perfect example of a company getting really, really lazy when it comes to both soft- and hardware (iPhone 6/6S/7).
    But then again I realise people are coming back anyway for the Holy Grail, the Apple eco system. And of course due to the fact they are vendor locked in (seamless intergration between Apple devices).

    Apple is fully aware of this, so even if they **** up a Control Centre in iOS 11 by being super lazy, the user doesn't care, cause of the Apple eco system and vendor lock in.
    People are buying their iPhones regardless at almost any price, Apple can do little to less efforts for this, the $$$ are coming to Cupertinho anyway so why bother??

    I still really like and use with joy, all of my Apple devices I got over the years, but the laziness (soft-hardware) of Apple is very clear the last few years.

    I'm really not a fan. I'm all for making control center custom, but the whole page design they did I'm really not enjoying. They should've kept it the card that you slide up and let you customize it from there.

    While I do believe Android 7/8 currently have the best implementation of a control centre, personally, I do like this new control centre for the ability to customize it, and the way it works with 3D touch is pretty cool...adds another layer of interaction.

    I think it's a great idea to have the sliders vertical, it's a much more natural movement. I think the vertical layout of the new control center makes a lot of sense, and will work even better on an iPhone without any bezels.

    Not at all, they design things to make them work. Then they design that thing to be beautiful. Sometimes they hit their mark.

    That concept doesn't do much for me either.

    There really needs to be a smooth way to make things more important or less important... not just shift things around or put it behind a layer of 3D touch. (remember there are devices that will get this that DON'T have 3D touch, designers always forget very important details like that and then their "beautiful designs" just cause user headaches)

    It'd be nice to have a way to grow and shrink different areas and control objects (i.e. have more than one size/detail level for certain controls)... without having to hide it behind force touch or long touch. Just have it right out there where it can be used with a single tap if wanted.

    It works better once you actually get your hands on it. Only problem is I have yet to be able to access it from the Lock Screen as the unified "Notification Center" is accessed by the same Swipe up from the bottom.

    New Control Center is great! It looks weird but you love the new Real Estate soon enough. I wish they would just get rid of Notification Center or give us the ability to choose what is in there. It looks like a Rat's Nest.

    infinitely better than the oh-so-brilliant o_O thin horizontal sliders within horizontal panels that can be swiped left/right on the current iOS.

    I don't have the beta. But you are saying CC is not accessible from the lockscreen? Even if you start your swipe from outside of the display instead of the direct bottom of the display.

    I just tried again and I had to literally be precise. My swipe had to come from Off Screen. In iOS10, I could swipe on the screen and up and it usually worked. I didn't know the main method was off the screen :(

    The Beta is Buggy. Could be worse.

    It does work. SORRY. FALSE ALARM (Fake News). My B

    I honestly don't really care what it looks like because I'm in and out of it so fast. For me the improved functionality matters more than the aesthetics.
