    Go into settings > general > accessibility > assistive touch and turn it on.
    I customized the way I want to (that's within the settings). There will be a "floating button" on your iPhone screen that will allow you to access different settings including the control center.

    Very carefully...lol.. It's almost impossible.. Once every several times I get it...I use a screen cloth.. Sometimes I even wash it out and dry it a little with blow dryer then blow it out with canned air...

    I tested my Lifeproof Nd as suggested; it worked well as I got soaked in a torrential rain.

    I have one I use for camping and beach. It works great at protecting the phone. The biggest issue I run into is that because of water hitting the touch screen it will give me phantom touches. It's especially problematic when in the ocean with the waves and such. It's not as big of a problem in a pool where the water is generally calmer.

    Interesting, I never experienced "water phantom touches". After reading this post, I actually ran water over the screen and LifeProof Nd case to see what would happen and the screen only came on as I have raise to turn on activated. I guess it's possible that the "ocean" might have a way of effecting the screen...maybe

    It's the wave slap that causes it. But, after reading your response, is it possible my touch screen is to sensitive? If so, how do I reduce sensitivity?

    P.S. I just changed my 3D touch from light to medium. Let's see if that helps.

    I thought about getting a Lifeproof, but for my use (sailing, only in case I go overboard) I decided the generic bag-type cases work fine. I got one on Amazon for $7 w/free shipping ("Joto" Brand, though there are a tonne on amazon and they all look the same) and it works brilliantly. Of course, it's not something you can leave on all the time, and it's not as easy to use your phone. But it is possible to take underwater photos and use the phone.
