A longtime request for the iPhone was a way to quickly search and connect to available Wi-Fi networks and Bluetooth devices without having to browse the Settings app. With iOS 13, Apple has finally integrated this important feature into Control Center, so you can quickly access wireless settings from anywhere, including the lock screen.
The new feature builds on Control Center's Network Settings card introduced in iOS 11 Only options for turning Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on and off have been provided. You can now switch to another Wi-Fi network, disconnect a Bluetooth keyboard, or connect to a set of Bluetooth headphones or speakers. You can do all this in the Control Center with some 3D touch gestures or a long press.
First, open the Control Center. On an iPhone with Touch ID, swipe up from the bottom of the screen. On an iPhone with Face ID, swipe down from top right. Next, press and hold the map in the upper left corner, which displays the airplane mode, mobile data, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth controls.
The map is then expanded to show all the network setting options just mentioned, as well as AirDrop and Personal Hotspot. We're only interested in the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth controls here because the others do not have any additional features that were not included in iOS 1
Option 1: Switching Wi-Fi networks and opening settings
Press hard or long – Press the Wi-Fi icon. This will open a new map of the available Wi-Fi networks that you may be able to connect to.
Tap any network to connect. If the network does not require a password, or if it is a network to which you were previously connected, you will be connected immediately. If the network requires a password, you will be asked to unlock your iPhone (if you have not already). Then, the app settings will open where you can enter the password. If you're already on a network and tapping it, nothing happens, so you can not connect to your current wireless network. Turn off Wi-Fi only completely or off.
In addition to being able to switch and connect to Wi-Fi networks, you can also tap the Wi-Fi settings shortcut button below to jump to the Wi-Fi area of the Settings app
Bei So many wireless devices available today, especially in recent years when the headphone jack has been removed, it is vital to be able to manage wireless connections quickly and easily. The Control Center always seemed to be the obvious location for these connections, and iOS 13 finally closed the last major functional hole in the Control Center.
