When I try to center a switch in Xamarin forms, it does not center vertically on iOS. The same switch code on Android seems very well centered.
Comment 1 Andy 2015-07-06 20:50:47 UTC
I should have mentioned that this is in a StackLayout

			mSwitch = new Xamarin.Forms.Switch {
				HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.EndAndExpand,
				VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.CenterAndExpand,

I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms version and I am observing that when I modified your code as  

using System;

using Xamarin.Forms;

namespace AppForms
	public class App : Application
		public App ()
			// The root page of your application
			MainPage = new ContentPage {
				Content = new StackLayout {
					VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center,
					Children = {
						new Label {
							XAlign = TextAlignment.Center,
							Text = "Welcome to Xamarin Forms!"

					new Xamarin.Forms.Switch {
							HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.CenterAndExpand,
							VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.CenterAndExpand,

and Now I am getting switch control in center for both and iOS 

Please let me know if you are facing this issue again?

This was caused by a different issue it seems. I had the padding set for the parent stack layout to 15.0 for vertical. In that instance, instead of centering and clipping the object, the top-most vertical padding is applied  more than the bottom-most vertical padding. Thank you for looking into this so thoroughly

I've modified it to have that padding applied to the right side instead.

Padding = new Thickness(10.0, 0.0, 15.0, 0.0);

I believe that a warning should be logged if the padding causes an object's bounds to extend out of it's parent.

The original code was 

Padding = new Thickness(10.0, 15.0);

Described behavior is expected.
