    In beta 4 you could invoke Control Center when the keyboard was displayed (e.g., in Messages) if you swiped slowly and deliberately. Now, in beta 5, it appears that it can't be done at all. I've tried swiping both quickly and slowly, and I can't make it work.

    there's a setting now that gives you the option of doing it in apps, perhaps yours is set to off maybe. *I haven't installed beta 5 yet, so I can't confirm if it changes anything.*

    That does kinda suck because I sometimes need to pause music or turn the brightness up or down in the messages app.

    Maybe the ideal setting would be a double swipe like in full screen apps.

    Good thought, but no, I do have it set to work in apps.

    Boy, I've tried and tried, but I haven't been able to make it work even once.

    I second that. Makes sense to me.

    Edit: Doesn't seem to work when the keyboard is open in any app.

    Doesn't work for me either. Was weird activating it with the keyboard anyways.

    Start your finger in the middle of the home button. Then swipe up at a normal speed.

    Tried it 10 times, failed 10 times. Varied the swipe speed from super fast to super slow, and everything in-between. :(

    It works, but again, not well.

    But it looks like you're swiping diagonally from bottom left to upper right. Goes straight up from home button to FaceTime camera. (That direction not literally that far)

    Swipe from left of the space bar. Basically start on the dictation button.

    Can't get it to work that way. My motion is the same as using your thumb (for a right-handed person). I just used my index finger so I didn't block the screen.

    Yup. :)
