The latest iteration of iOS has packed in a range of impressive tweaks and enhancements. Along with the long-awaited Dark Mode, one of the nifty little new add-ons that have caught my eyes is the option to switch WiFi networks and manage Bluetooth connections right from Control Center in iOS 13. It works pretty much the same way in iPadOS 13 as well.

From a user’s perspective, it’s quite neat, and I’m sure many of you would appreciate this implementation. Without wasting any time, let’s find out how it works!
