The iOS Control Center contains two rows of buttons at the top and bottom of the area. The previous implementation made more sense to me, since the top buttons were switches and the bottom buttons were mainly pitchers (except for the flashlight, which feels out of place).
The latest update that introduced the Night Shift feature brought a new button to the Control Center. You are now in the middle of the bottom row and are responsible for activating / deactivating that function.
I can see how the flashlight could have been a one-time compensation because, on the other hand, the interaction with that particular characteristic is supposed to be short: you cast it, use it quickly, and return to what you were. doing (as with the camera, calculator or timer).
But now I do not fully understand the logic behind those placement decisions. The Night Shift button is definitely a switch, it can stay on for a long period of time and it seems to belong to the area where most of the switches are. I realize that the area will fill up too much, but, again, it is possible to have two rows of icons there, with the secondary ones grouped in a collapsible / expandable area, like the one that allows you to act on a banner. notification (for example, response to a text message). That would also make it possible to include the switches for Low Power Mode, Cellular Data and Auto Brightness in that quick access area, which makes it even more feature-rich.
Before telling me that this really belongs to Apple's comments website, let me finally ask my question: is there any logic behind this placement? It just does not feel good, consistent or predictable. However, I'm sure they know what they're doing, which makes me wonder if I'm missing something.
I did a search before asking if this is not going to be a duplicate.
