Get Control of the iPad Control Center

put Control Center away

A short time ago I wrote about how to use the iPad Control Center, a set of convenient controls for your iPad. That article explained how to access and use many of the features and functions found in Control Center.

However, I recently received this request from a reader:

Bottom control center bar

How do I eliminate or reposition this bar? It continually
pops up when I hit the space bar and interrupts my typing. Thx any
advice welcome

Here’s how to turn off the Control Center.
Go to Settings.
Tap Control Center in the left column.
Turn off Access Within Apps.
