New iPhone X Gestures To Replace the Home Button

Using the iPhone X means learning a set of new gestures to replace the Home button. You need to learn how to do a quick and short swipe up at the bottom of the screen to replace the basic Home button press. Other functions, like screenshots, Siri, accessibility and restarting your phone will use the side button and a combination of other techniques.

    Gary, noticed in last video that your screen didn’t show the notch. Is that normal, or did you do some magic?

    George: The notch is physical. When you take screen grabs or video capture, you don’t see it in the digital representation.

    Is it possible to use Face ID to always open the phone to the home screen instead of the last opened screen or app?

    Do you expect cases with a lower lip interfere with the up swipe (that replaces the home button?)

    Bonnie: Possibly. Hopefully those making cases for the iPhone X will design appropriately.

    Joe: Face ID just unlocks the phone, so it will always just be as you left it.
