Revamped Control Centre on iOS 15 Version

Apple is reportedly planning a redesign of the iPhone Control Centre. Leaks sourced from MacRumors suggest that the new look will mirror the aesthetics of the Control Centre found in macOS Big Sur. Notably, the macOS version features a clean, compact design that enhances user experience.

Should these changes materialize, iPhones running iOS 15 could feature colored icons for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirDrop. The update may also introduce a new horizontal slider for adjusting screen brightness and volume, akin to the interface seen on Android smartphones.



Reports indicate that iOS 15 could bring new icons, including those for keyboard brightness and AirPlay Display, among others. However, it’s worth noting that iOS 15 may not entirely mimic the Control Centre from Big Sur. It’s likely that some existing elements and icons will be retained in the new iOS version. Also Read – Google Android 12 design leaks, reveal major UI design overhaul

Other new features

In addition to the Control Centre modifications, reports suggest that iOS 15 version will introduce new APIs for developers. These APIs could potentially integrate both Touch ID and Face ID functionalities. It remains uncertain whether the forthcoming iPhone 13 series will support both these identification methods.

However, there’s a strong possibility that the new iPhones will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. Another leak, originating from a Reddit user, hints at further visual changes, particularly in the app icons. This suggests that iOS 15 could bring a fresh look to the iPhone interface. Also Read – Realme GT 5G with Snapdragon 888 chipset launches globally, Realme Robot Vacuum unveils
