    Is there an alternate way to open control center, such as with a triple click, etc.? Our teachers use AirPlay a lot to mirror to the Apple TVs, but the Griffin Survivor case makes it very difficult to do...

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    There is no alternate way, no. Definitely a limitation of having one of those types of cases.

    Is there something about the case that lets you activate Notification Center, but not Command Center?

    Nobody really uses notification center, so that's not an issue. Not being able to get at AirPlay however is a big deal.

    That's probably the most ridiculous statement I've ever seen on here.

    AirPlay is a feature that the vast majority of iOS users have no way to use, even if they wanted to, whereas Notification Center will be used by people to read text messages and email.

    Interesting too, I've done research and there is another way to draw open the notification center .. but I could find nothing for control center.

    Siri can't seem to get to it, nor does any of the Accessibility tricks. (Explore the AssistiveTouch area for example.)

    It can't be terribly hard to smoosh your finger into the crack and swipe up, can it? I haven't heard others with tight screen border cases say anything, but I don't have one to test...

    There may be a way yet to do so, try Switch control settings perhaps?

    ----------

    And for the record, I find Control Center more useful than the Notification Center.. by far.

    Have you read the thread? I'm pretty sure he knows what his teachers use and don't use.

    I was talking about at our school. No reason to go of the deep end chief.

    Assistive Touch (accessibility) should allow a simulated swipe up... but I haven't checked.

    While yes we can program an up-swipe via AssistiveTouch, the starting point of the simulated swipe up, the blue dot, cannot be placed low enough on the screen to trigger Control Center to kick in.
