Apple is introducing new features with the iOS 18 update. The tech giant previewed the upcoming iOS operating system at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2024 on June 10. Apple is revamping the Control Centre of the iPhone with iOS 18. It will get many more options than before and will allow users to swipe across pages to access additional controls and toggles. 

iOS 18 is also bringing an easier way for users to turn off their iPhones. 

Apple introduced several new features for the iPhone with the iOS 18 showcase at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2024 on Monday. One of the key highlights was the Control Centre revamp which is getting a new controls gallery with many more options than before. Furthermore, users will also be able to swipe across pages to access additional controls and toggles. One feature Apple did not showcase but has made its way to iOS 18 is an easier way to turn off the iPhone.

The new power button on the iPhone can now be used to quickly turn off the device without having to press and hold the Volume Down + Power buttons and then swipe the slider. This shortcut is accessible in the Control Centre at the top-right corner of the screen. To access it, simply swipe down to bring up the Control Centre, tap on the new power button, and it will bring up the slider used to turn the iPhone off. This feature is currently available in the iOS 18 Developer Beta 1 update.

This new shortcut is just one of the many features that Apple added to the iPhone with its new update but did not advertise during the keynote at the developer event.

Meanwhile, in iOS 18, a new two-step permissions pop-up screen will be introduced. First, it will ask users to allow or deny access to their contacts. If access is allowed, users will then be able to choose which contacts they want to share, instead of sharing all contacts at once.
