    It seems that Apple listened to the moaners with cases who couldn't reach the edge of their screens to pull down the notification centre. The bar now pulls down from lower on the screen and as I use assistive touch and park my button top right, I'm forever pulling the notification screen down accidentally...

    What do you mean by lower on the screen? What sort of difference are we talking about here?

    JUST above the safari address box, it used to be higher before I'm sure of it.

    So this more easily pulled down notification centre bugs nobody but me?
    I guess those who don't use assistive touch won't be troubled by it.

    It only bothers me when I get it in the lock screen by accident. It happens sometimes where I guess that grabbing my phone from my pocket immediately after getting a message, I somehow activate NC (usually changed to the pointless for me "today" view), or sometimes the camera.

    I park my assistive touch button top right of the screen but obviously need to move it regularly, and it's when I go to drag it down that I pull the blooming notification centre down instead. Most frustrating as it never, or certainly rarely, happened prior to 7.1

    Hmm.

    I think this only applies to 4" iPhones (5 and above), as my iPhone 4S seems to have the same activation zone for notification center.

    I suggest you write on the Apple feedback page. Perhaps pushing them to change it so that the activation zone is pushed up if assistive touch is present near the edge of the screen. I find it that Apple usually listen when it comes to accessibility features. You should also start a thread on the Apple Community support section to increase awareness.

    I remember lots of people complaining that due to their leather case etc, they couldn't get right to the top of the screen to pull the notification centre down. This has obviously been addressed (for them) but now it creates me problems.

    I have always selected cases on the proviso they allow me to reach every millimeter of my phone screen. So many cases do not allow this and yet Apple have pandered to those who buy bad cases. Bizarre.
    Mind you, I expect that Apple gets a cut from the profits of certain 'made for iPhone' cases...

    Assuming that's related to this, and assuming this exists for most others.

    Well, you can check it. Does your notification bar pull down from a slightly lower position now? I think I can place my finger 2mm lower now and still pull the bar down.

    I noticed that I thought it was because on 7.0 if you were say scrolling to down a webpage and went to pull down the notification centre, it would auto-scroll to the top of the page you were on as it does when you touch the top bar but while you were pulling it down. It doesn't do that any more so maybe it has a different trigger point

    It seems about the same to me as before. I don't really have anything that I consistently use at the top (like you seem to) that would really indicate something changed for me, so for me (and I would assume for many others) even if it did change we probably would never really know (and/or actually care), but similarly we wouldn't really know if it didn't really change either.

    ----------

    I've had that happen quite a bit now that you bring it up. I thought I still saw it happen recently too even after installing 7.1, but I guess I'll try to keep an eye out for it a bit more and see if that might have actually changed somehow.
