Hi guys,

Any of you guys having issues swiping down from the top right corner to invoke the control center via reachability and not working?

I’m using the iPhone 12 Pro and it’s been happening frequently where I would swipe from the bottom for reachability then swipe top right to access control center and it doesn’t show up and the notifications comes down instead. ??‍♂️

Is anyone else experiencing this bug?

No problems here. As a temporary workaround, consider using the back tap feature to invoke Control Center and or the Reachability feature.
I have that feature enabled as well but it’s not as reliable either. My preference is reachability first.
It’s definitely a bug/issue.

Upgraded to 14.4 and the damn issue remains!

Can someone try this: either watch a YouTube vid full screen landscape mode or play a video game like Asphalt 8, return to the home screen, swipe from the bottom to invoke reachability, then swipe down top right to invoke Control Center

Works for me on a 12. I can never get reachability to work with a swipe so I use Back tap, but control center appeared with no problem in reachability.

This has been a bug since iOS 11 with the iPhone X.

It happens when you’ve spent some time in landscape orientation and then return to portrait and then if you try to access Control Center via Reachability, it won’t work.

You’ll have to swipe down from the top right of the display for it to work again.

I’ve already filed a bug report about this almost 3 years ago and I suggest people who experience it should, too.

Came here looking for help for this same issue on my XS. It gets pretty annoying, and sometimes the bringing down of the Notification Center won’t even work as the initial workaround fix.
