Most of the people have criticized the issue of removing a physical home button from iPhone X. Users appreciate the efforts of Apple for introducing a bezel-less screen with maximum screen output and no physical buttons, but due to the glitches in iOS 11 and tiresome hand gestures, people are trying to look for alternatives they can use for the home button.
While the number of opened windows for different applications can be accessed by swiping up the intangible home button, users can visit the Control Center by dragging at the upper right corner on the screen. Users are now continuously searching for ways to access the fundamental functionalities on their iPhone which were once just a fingertip away but with the elimination of a home button, everything has become dependent on the screen. An option that has existed on the iPhones over the years is also present on iPhone X called Assistive Touch. The Assistive Touch is an option that leads users to the accessibility settings. This option will allow users to place a virtual home button on the screen that can be moved in any direction for the fulfillment of different tasks.
This virtual home button will allow users to take 4 important actions. The round home button can be tapped, held, touched in dual dimensions, and dragged downwards. Making any motion with the home button will allow users to perform different functionalities like going back to the home screen, capturing a screenshot, multitasking, and granting access to the Control Centre.
The invisible home button is convenient in the sense that it can be placed anywhere on the screen and if a designated space has been allocated to the button like the previous iPhones, the button can stay at the bottom of the screen in the center permanently.
Apple has always been one step ahead of all the tech companies but its innovation comes at a high premium price which is beyond the affordability range of every consumer.
