When we get a new phone, many of us are comfortable with the little features we get to know on our phone for the 3 weeks of purchase, we don’t dig deeper to enjoy the amazing features some of this phones has to offer. We don’t fully utilize the money spent on getting this luxurious phones. A typical example is the iPhone X, there are cool features which is really helpful for better use but we mostly don’t explore them. We have compiled the best useful and simple tips for the iPhone X, we hope you find it useful.
- POWERING OFF OPTION
This one is more so for the people who have an iPhone X. As most of you know, in order to turn off an iPhone X, you must press the “Volume Up” and “Power” Button. I’m going to give you two alternatives to turn off your phone. The first one is to go to Settings–> General–>scroll all the way down till you see “Shut Down”. The second option is even easier. Just press volume up–>volume down–>hold power button.
- GUIDED ACCESS
This is another feature that I enjoy using and it’s one of my favorite. What guided access allows you to do is limit the privileges you give to other people when it comes to your phone. For example, when someone asks to use your phone for a phone call, they won’t be able to snoop around your phone and you also have the option to time them. To activate this, go to Settings–>General–>Accessibility–>Guided Access. Once you turn this on, you can activate it by triple-clicking the “power” button.
Since there is no home button like previous models, reachability might be a confusing function to perform. However, with a quick change in the settings, you should be good to go. Tap on Settings–>General–>Accessibility–>Reachability. Once you turn that on, all you have to do is swipe down from the bottom dock and all of your apps should come down.
- USING THE NOTCH TO SCROLL UP
Like many iPhone models before this, if you were browsing the web and ended up scrolling down, a slight tap on the top of the screen should bring you back up. Many people believe that the iPhone X doesn’t have this option because of the notch. However, this is untrue and the same function can be performed.
- MULTI-TASK FROM HOME SCREEN
For iPhone X users, if you wanted to multitask, you have to swipe up slowly to see it on your screen. Instead, try making an arch movement on the bottom left corner of the device. This is a faster and more efficient way of accessing that multi-task screen.
