Question: Control center wont expand

I have iPhone 8, iOS 11.1.1, but my control center is not working properly. I cannot turn on night shift or true tone that usually would be in brightness bar, but brightness bar wont expand, when I press and hold it. Same happens with wifi/bluetooth bar, I cannot access personal hotspot thats under that bar. What do I do and how do I make it work?

Hey aaortim!


Thanks for visiting the Apple Support Communities. From your post, I understand that you are having trouble accessing specific features in Control Center, like Night Shift and Personal Hotspot. I'd be happy to help!


Based on the instructions in Use Night Shift on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch - Apple Support , to turn on Night Shift (and other features like it), you need to firmly press and hold on the Brightness slider in Control Center. This act is more like pressing a button than just setting your finger on the display; place and hold your finger on the slider, and then push into the screen a bit.

If you continue to have trouble accessing the features you need in Control Center, try restarting your iPhone: Restart your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support .

More information on Control Center can be found here: Use and customize Control Center on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch - Apple Support .


Cheers!

Hi...

No need updates, but it’s fine.

Try this step to expand..

* first touch the any of one icon in notification centre.

* now the icon only get visible other going to invisible view.

* while that time ‘press the icon once again’ to expand.


(Can’t take the your finger..continue the touch and then press little bit to expand.)


Hope it’s useful.


Ping me if you have any questions...

Oh sorry! I use the name notification centre instead of control centre.


You just press any of the icon in control centre for example press and hold the brightness icon few Sec and then continue to press again...to expand.


Try few times..you would get it.
