If you've never used the Home keyboard shortcuts on your iPhone before, you've missed it. And no, I'm not talking about opening Siri. If you click the Home button three times, you can quickly call up tools like Magnifier, VoiceOver, Zoom, and Assistive Touch, but that's all changed on the iPhone X, X S X S Max and X R which have no home buttons to click. Fortunately, it is no more complicated to use the tool shortcut on the iPhone X, X S X S Max and X R as on any iPhone with home button. Instead of clicking the Home button three times, click the new Page button three times. It's that simple.
However, if you do not have anything set up to use the page navigation keyboard shortcut, nothing happens if you click on it three times, or if you just happen to reach another side target. Keyboard shortcut
Keyboard shortcut tools Three-Click Button
In iOS 1
Apart from Magnifer, there are a wealth of tools for this page key linking. Just open the settings and go to "General", then "Accessibility". Scroll all the way down and tap Accessibility Shortcut. From this list, you can add some or all of the following shortcuts to the page navigation:
- AssistiveTouch: This opens the on-screen menu where you can, for example, open the app switch and lock the screen, access Siri, start Reset your iPhone (or turn it off), adjust the volume, and so on.
- Classic Invert Colors: This inverts the colors on the screen in a classic look. Compare this to the new "Smart Invert Colors" below.
- Color Filters: Allows you to change the color of the screen in certain situations, such as a red screen for night use.
- Reduce White Point: This makes the white on the screen less bright, which may be easier on your eyes.
- Smart Invert Colors: This allows you to quickly and easily turn the next item on or off, a "Dark Mode" on iOS.
- Switch Control: This is for people who have a hard time navigating the iPhone with their hands. Users can use an external switch device, perform head movements, or tap the screen to perform common actions
- VoiceOver: This will audition aloud whatever is on your screen, depending on how you set it have up.
- Zoom: This will bring up the zoom controls, which is especially useful for users with visibility issues. In addition, you can switch the brightness to the correct settings (which will allow you to go below the standard brightness level.)
While the magnification tool is displayed here, you can not really turn it on or off in this list. You can do this only via "magnifying glass" in the main menu "accessibility". If you enable multiple options in the Accessibility menu and click the Page button three times, a menu will appear on the screen asking you which tool to use.
But this is not everything. There is another option that you can assign to the triple click gestures with the side button "Guided access". With this feature, you can lock certain areas of your screen so that you can hand over your iPhone to your curious friend or mischievous child without opening things they can not. You can also find the "Guided Access" option in the "Accessibility" menu, and like the Magnifer, you can not enable or disable it using the "Accessibility Shortcuts" menu.
Well, the only thing you need to do is get used to all side-button gestures. If you click too often, you can activate Emergency SOS, or if you do not click enough, you can lock the screen. But it should not take too long until all this is done.
