This year it is with the old and with the new for Apple's newest iPhones. After the iPhone X, the company has made a constant transition to the same design for all its iPhones – an edge-to-edge display, a notch on the top and the removal of the home button. While the updated design is a refreshing change, it may take some time to adapt to the new gestures and features. To make the transition easier, we've put together a guide to navigating iOS 1
How to Unlock the Screen
Instead of using your fingerprint to unlock the device, now all you have to do is look at the screen. On the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, Touch ID has been replaced with Face ID thanks to Apple's TrueDepth technology.
You can set up your Face ID profile by going to your settings. Then you are asked to perform a series of movements, such as turning your head in a circle to capture all the corners of your face. Once set up, you can unlock your iPhone XS or XR simply by looking at the screen. With iOS 12, you can now add two different Face ID profiles to unlock your phone – for those who want to add a different appearance.
How to Switch Apps
Instead of tapping the Home button twice to raise everyone For your open apps, you'll need to use gestures now. Prior to iOS 12, access to the App Switcher had to be from the bottom of the device. To close the apps, you need to hold down a particular app until the red minus sign appears in the upper left corner. All you have to do now is swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access and switch between all open apps. You can close apps by swiping upwards.
To activate Siri and open Apple Pay
To enable Siri, press and hold the power button until the voice assistant appears on the screen. If you're in the business and ready to pay for your items, you can conveniently call Apple Pay by tapping the power button twice.
How to Take a Screenshot
Creating a screenshot with the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR is easy – even without the Home button. Just hold down the power and volume keys at the same time. Be careful, however, to touch the buttons only briefly. Holding it down opens a window with options for turning off the iPhone or using the emergency SOS features. After creating the screenshot, you can mark or edit the image before sending it.
How to Open the Control Center and the Notification Center
Handling the gestures on your new iPhone may be a bit complicated, especially for those who switch from older models than the iPhone X. To access the Control Center, swipe down from the top right corner of both the lock screen and the home screen instead of swiping from bottom to top as usual. The same is true for the Notification Center, but in this case you will need to swipe down from below the notch in the middle or from the upper left corner.
To turn off the iPhone
You can turn off the iPhone by simultaneously pressing the power button and the volume up or down button. Do not let go until you see the option to turn off the phone. You also have quick access to your medical ID and emergency SOS.
How to use reachability
To use the reachability of an older iPhone model, you normally double-tap the Home button Lets you drag the apps from top to bottom to the center of the screen – allowing you they can easily tap.
With the iPhone XR's 6.1-inch display and the XS Max's 6.5-inch display, this could be even more difficult for those with smaller hands to reach certain apps. To use the reachability feature, you must make sure that it is activated first. Go to Settings> General> Reachability> Reachability and enable the feature. To access apps, swipe down the horizontal bar at the bottom of the screen. To get everything back into place, wipe the bar about an inch or knock on the screen somewhere.
