Hidden Tips and Tricks Every IPhone X

The iPhone X ushers in a new age of all display, notches, facial recognition, Animoji, and new gestures for controlling everything.

You may find yourself confused by how to do things without a home button and notice many features have been moved around. To help you get the hang of things quickly, we’ve compiled the 12 best hidden tips that’ll help you master your iPhone X.

We know, there’s a learning curve, and nobody likes relearning things. But we promise it’ll be worth it. So take a deep breath and let’s do this together.

1. Open the App Switcher like a pro

Now that there’s no home button, you’ve got to learn a whole new set of gestures, and opening the App Switcher can be tricky. Apple tells you to swipe up from the gesture bar towards the center of the screen, and then wait for the App Switcher to appear when you feel a little vibration. This is not only slow, but hard to pull off. Instead, swipe up and at an arc towards the right or left (if you’re a lefty) and, voila!

2. Bring back the home button (sort of)

Honestly, you get used to not having a home button pretty quickly. But if you simply can’t live without it, there is a way to bring it back (albeit in virtual form).

Go to General > Accessibility > AssistiveTouch and turn it on. You’ll now see a virtual home button that you can customize to activate shortcuts.

You can set the virtual button to go home with a single-tap, double-tap, long press, or 3D Touch. Or set the button for other shortcuts like launching Control Center. Additionally, if you’re worried about screen-burn in, we recommend lowering the “Idle Opacity” setting below the 40 percent default.

In some ways this virtual home button is more versatile than a physical one. You don’t have to place it where the real button used to be — it can be place anywhere along the sides of the display.
