Introduction to Control Center for the iPad

Control Center for Attorneys

Control Center is a feature on the iPad that allows a user to quickly select some basic settings without having to launch the iOS settings app. It was introduced in iOS 7, but I am often surprised that many attorneys do not know it exists. Control Center is accessed by swiping up from the bottom of your screen on your iPad, and it only takes up a small portion of your screen. I have created a short YouTube Video showing how to use Control Center, and describing all the functions that you can access with it:

In the video, you will learn how to launch Control Center, how to change settings on your device using Control Center, and how to customize when Control Center is used. As an attorney, I often use Control Center while traveling to switch Airplane Mode on and off, while presenting to enable Airplay, AirDrop, and Do Not Disturb, and when listening to Podcast or Audiobooks to quickly pause titles, skip around tracks, or to change the volume. Control Center is a useful tool that allows you to quickly access functions without leaving an application, and has often helped save valuable time.
