How To: Stop Accidentally Swiping Up the Control Center in iOS 7 (Disable for Apps & Lock Screen)

Stop Accidentally Swiping Up the Control Center in iOS 7 (Disable for Apps & Lock Screen)

Personally, my favorite new feature in iOS 7 is the Control Center. With it, you can very quickly and efficiently access popular and much used settings, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, brightness and more—all with one simple swipe.

While I love the Control Center, it may not be everyone's cup of tea. There are times when it swipes up unintentionally, when playing a game, or trying to swipe up other panels in certain applications like Twitter.

In this softModder tutorial, I'll show you how to disable the Control Center in applications and/or on your lock screen.

Disable Control Center

To disable the Control Center from either your apps or lock screen, head over to Settings -> Control Center -> and toggle off Access on Lock Screen and/or Access Within Apps.

From then on, you should not be able to swipe up the Control Center while in your lock screen or any application (downloaded or not).
