I've looked around a bit and cannot find anything about this. But as far reaching as the internet goes, forgive me if I've missed the explanation I seek.

On my lock screen, in the top right corner, under the symbols for wifi/cellular/battery, I have a line under them.
I know its there intentionally, but I wonder what it signifies or its reasoning.

Can anyone clarify this? Thank you.

Basically to show people that it is an area that can be interacted with. Not everyone is as savvy and the new control center gesture is opposite of where it's always been.

Completely understand. I'm just one of those inquisitive type of people that keep picking at something until I figure it out. Thanks for the help!

This line doesn't bother me, but why an indicator on the right side for control center, and not on the left side for notification center ?

A horizontal line is new-Apple-GUI for a 'swipeable' area.
Not quite new in the sense that these type of indicators have been around in some places in relation to Notification Center, for example, as I recall.

Potentially because Notification Center is still in its usual place where it used to be, while Control Center is now in a different location and only has a particular small area that correlates to it.
