    Open the Control Center all the way. Now continue pulling up until it stops. See how it still only partially covers the screen but now it has exactly enough room for another row of icons? Why is this? Why can you only pull it up to that specific point?

    Thats not really a 'hint'.
    That area you can see is the result of the 'elastic' or 'rubber band' effect they use. It's like inertia.

    But yes, it is possible that you might be able to scroll up for more shortcuts. I just hope its not a tentpole feature for iOS 8 :p

    I don't know why it is not full screen anyway,,,it would look better IMO. Share sheets too would look better filling the screen.

    Yes, I think we will se more control options on the cc but I would't hold my breath for anything soon. Possibly on iOS 8.

    I think the dedicated settings page for control center is a pretty strong sign that there's more to come in terms of customization and options. Otherwise, I'd think they would have tucked it away under general settings somewhere

    IMHO that is simply for Apples rubber banding effect, not for the addition of another row of Control Center shortcuts.

    No different then when you swipe down for search it reveals space for another row of app icons.

    Clearly this depends on the device you are using. On an iPhone 4s there is not room without covering the status bar.

    It's just the 'bounce' UI affect that Apple uses. It's all over the place.

    This is not quite the same as a standard rubber band effect—in all other instances (like Search) you can pull indefinitely, until you run out of screen. But when pulling the Control Center, it abruptly stops right where another row of icons would be.
