iOS 7 Tip #13: How To Disable That Slide To Read or Slide To Call Feature

You’ve got an email reminder popping up right on your iPhone’s lock screen reminding that you’ve got an mail, with a tiny hint “slide to read” underneath the message.

Or, you’ve got a missed call reminder on the same lock screen, with a similar tiny hint saying “slide to call” underneath it.

Then, if you just slide and unlock the lock screen, you will actually be taken right to the email message or be calling to the missed call number right away. Most of the time, it’s great, but sometimes, it’s annoying.

Well, you can avoid or by pass that all together with simply¬†sliding at the bottom of the screen where it says “slide to unlock” to unlock the lock screen.
