In this lesson for the Clock app on the iPad we look at how we add the Stopwatch Control to the Control Center and how we use the Stopwatch in the Control Center.
Adding the Stopwatch Control to the Control Center
The first thing we need to do is add the Stopwatch Control to the Control Center. This is very similar to how we added the Alarm Control to the Control Center I demonstrated in an earlier lesson. To add the Stopwatch Control to the Control Center, you need to go to the Settings app on your iPad. In the Settings app is a setting for Control Center. When you tap on this setting, you’ll see Customize Controls. When you tap on this you will see Include. These are the Controls that are in your Control Center currently. Below this list of included Controls, you will more controls you can add. Tap on the green ‘+’ next to Stopwatch. When you do that, the Stopwatch Control will move to the included controls. You can now access the Stopwatch from the Control Center on your iPad.
Accessing the Stopwatch from the Control Center
Now that the Stopwatch Control has been added to the Control Center, to access the Stopwatch in the Clock app, you just go to your Control Center and tap on the Stopwatch Control. When you do this, the Clock app will open to the Stopwatch.
