If you’re having trouble navigating your iPhone’s big screen, Apple’s accessibility feature can make it much easier to use your device with one hand.
Accessibility is the name of the iPhone feature that brings content halfway up the screen of your device, making one-handed navigation more comfortable.
In older iPhones that had a home button, accessibility could be enabled by double-tapping the home button.
For devices with Face ID instead, you’ll need to enable the option through accessibility settings. Once activated, it can be activated via a touch gesture.
How to enable accessibility on an iPhone without a home button
- Open Settings
- Faucet Accessibility
- Faucet To touch
- Activate Accessibility
Once activated, you will only have to swipe the bottom edge of the screen to bring the top edge within reach.
To restore full screen, simply swipe up from the bottom edge, which will “push” the screen back to full screen mode.
