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 ($260 at Back Market).

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 ($900 at Boost Mobile). 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.
