Control Center is a new feature in iOS 7 that provides quick access to certain apps, music controls, brightness, and system toggles. The best part is, Control Center is accessible anywhere within iOS. If you’d like to access Control Center, all you need to do is swipe up from the bottom of the screen. Unfortunately, there’s no way to rearrange Control Center or customize any of the app shortcuts, but iOS 7 does offer a few options that may be helpful. Check out our video tutorial below to find out how to get the most out of Control Center’s options:
If you can’t see the above video, please click this link.In order to customize Control Center’s options, launch the Settings app and tap on “Control Center” in the list. Here you’ll find toggle switches for “Access on Lock Screen” or “Access Within Apps.” As noted in Control Center’s settings, turning off the “Access on Lock Screen” toggle will prevent it from being used from the lock screen. In addition to this setting, you can also turn off "Access Within Apps” to prevent the use of Control Center while an app is open. There may not be a lot of options for Control Center at the moment, but taking advantage of these two settings will help provide you with a better experience in iOS 7.
