There are certain stunts a few smartphone brands can pull; change whatever you may on the products, and customer loyalty still stays stronger. Now Apple is one of those brands. And talking about stunts, the X model got released with a bit of surprise. There is no key designated for the home location. Nevertheless, you would discover a better process for simulating a key that would perform your iPhone’s “home” role. Few saw this edge-to-edge screen modification coming when we anticipated the X. The visible button that takes you home was considered redundant. Its absence gives you a better display screen size, now substituted by the gesture-technology. Therefore the X stands out as the only iPhone without the button. Now if you are one of those people who have an emotional attachment to the ditched vital feature, there is still hope.
Here is an amazing workaround for you to get your darling home key back:
Try a Virtual Home Key Option
Although not noticeable, the IOS comes with a secret home key. You can access this via your Settings. From your >Settings, select >General, then >Accessibility and finally >Assistive Touch. The assistive function is to support individuals with specific challenges. Now go ahead and enable it, select the Single-Tap option, and pick the Home; your simulated Home key will surface on display.
If you prefer your new Home location key (we know it is virtual) to be more of an entity key, then you can set this in the custom tap options: if you want it for a “single or double-tap”, 3D Touch or better still an extended press function. You can also move your new Home key anywhere on the screen. It’s even more mobile, unlike your old favourite, even if you feel like dragging it to the middle bottom of your screen to give it that favourite home essential position. It may obstruct your navigation of other apps, so here is how to get it out of the “apps-way”. Migrate all your apps and create room to locate your simulated home key right at the bottom centre of the screen. Now you have a home key just like the old one. Take out the word “virtual”; they are the same.
