How to change your Wi-Fi network in the Control Center on an iPhone with iOS 13

Apple's latest, and highly anticipated, operating system for iPhone 6S and higher, iOS 13, has many new features that have proved useful, and disappointing.

Control Center can be accessed by swiping down on the top right-hand corner of the screen on your iPhone X or later (or from the bottom of the screen on older models), whether it is locked or not.
