Apple’s latest, and highly anticipated, operating system for iPhone 6S and higher, iOS 13, has many new features that have proved useful, and disappointing.

One of its more convenient features is the ability to change your Wi-Fi network from an iPhone’s Control Centre – without having to go through Settings, the main previous method.

Control Centre can be accessed by swiping down on the top right-hand corner of the screen on your iPhone X or later (or from the bottom of the screen on older models), whether it is locked or not.
