There are also camera and microphone switches in the quick settings panel, an indicator that shows when the camera and microphone are in use. As a result, the user will be aware of whether the camera and microphone are currently recording data, and, if necessary, can quickly turn them off.

An updated view of the Wi-Fi settings has appeared. When you long press on the Wi-Fi icon in quick settings, a pop-up panel appears, where all available networks are indicated.
