Stop Accidental Swipes – Control That Control Center [iOS 7 Tips]

Control Center Settings

It’s fantastic to be able to swipe up from the bottom of the screen in any app or the home screen to turn Wi-Fi on or off, enable or disable Bluetooth, and the like. Control Center in iOS 7 has really solved some of my biggest issues with iOS in general.

However, there are times when I’m playing a game or using a certain app that I don’t really want the Control Center to pop up when i use the bottom of the screen.

Thankfully, Apple’s given us a way to disable it.

Tap on the Settings app to launch, and then tap on Control Center. You’ll then see two toggles, one that lets you access Control Center on the Lock Screen, and one that lets you access it from within apps.

It’s a trivial matter to hop in here and turn off Control Center in apps, for those times when you’re playing a game or scrolling through lists of emails. You’ll still be able to access the Control Center when you’re on the Home or Lock screen.
