iOS 17 may not be the biggest update in terms of new features, according to recent reports, but Control Center could be one of the areas slated for an update.
According to a source familiar with MacRumors, the iPhone and iPad Quick Settings menu, which can be accessed by swiping down from the top of the screen, will be overhauled.

The handy feature offers quick access to connectivity settings, volume, brightness, media, and other handy tools like flashlight, Apple TV remote, and do not disturb settings.
However, while there have been additions over the years, the feature has largely remained the same for the past five years. Of course since 2017 when it expanded to cover the entire screen with the option to add more icons.
The source that MacRumors says tipped them off about the iPhone 14 Pro’s Dynamic Island didn’t really have any specifics about the changes, other than saying it would be a “major” improvement.
However, they said that iOS 17 will be more of a maintenance update with performance and stability improvements, which ties in with previous reports from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who also said that it will, while also adding “nice” features.
iOS 17 will be officially unveiled at Apple’s WWDC 2023 keynote on June 5 in Cupertino. Apple traditionally unveils updated operating systems for all its platforms at an annual event.
This year, we may see a new one in full: mixed xrOS, which will run Apple Reality Pro mixed reality headsets. However, there are more rumors that Apple may decide to push back on this announcement.
