iOS 12: Where to find Control Center on the iPad

Apple is trying to make your iPad a really big iPhone X.

Control Center, home to shortcuts for things like Wi-Fi toggles and adjusting display brightness, has a new home on the iPad ($249 at Walmart).

Starting with iOS 12, instead of opening the multitasking view via a gesture or double-pressing the home button, iPad users will need to swipe down from the top-right corner. Specifically, a swipe down over the battery icon will launch Control Center. We briefly touched on the new location in a roundup of iOS 12's hidden features

If that sounds familiar, it should -- it's now in the same location as on an iPhone X ($899 at Amazon). After updating to iOS 12, you will see the Control Center icon randomly appear just below the battery icon, along with the familiar iOS handle to indicate a gesture can be used in that spot.
