In iOS 17, users of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max experienced a significant change as the Screen Mirroring button in the Control Center was replaced by a mute switch. If you find yourself missing the quick access to Screen Mirroring, here’s a straightforward guide to bring it back.
The inclusion of the Action Button in the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max led to the need for a virtual alternative for the physical Mute Switch it replaced. However, this substitution unintentionally displaced the familiar Screen Mirroring button that users were accustomed to.
For users who have upgraded to the iPhone 15 Pro or Pro Max and noticed the absence of the Screen Mirroring button, it has been replaced by a mute switch in the Control Center with the iOS 17 update.
Due to the transition from a physical switch to the Action Button, users looking for a non-default function for the new button required a software-based substitute. However, not everyone may find the need to customize the Action Button and might prefer the original Screen Mirroring option for seamless screen casting.
Thankfully, adding the Screen Mirroring button back to your Control Center is a straightforward process.
Here’s How to do it in iPhone 15 Pro iOS 17:
- Open the Settings app on your iPhone 15 Pro or Pro Max.
- Scroll down to the Control Center tab and tap into it.
- Locate Screen Mirroring in the “More Controls” list, and add it to your Included Controls.
It’s essential to note that while you can restore the Screen Mirroring button to the Control Center, you won’t be able to revert it to its original placement. Additionally, the mute button, now a part of the Control Center, cannot be removed. Nonetheless, this simple guide allows you to enjoy the convenience of having the Screen Mirroring button at your fingertips in the Control Center.
