The iPhone X is here and it is really, really good. Many users are currently in a period of acclimatisation though, as Apple’s flagship handset markedly changes the way you interact with it, mandating the use of a series of new gestures as the iPhone X has no home button. Luckily, thanks to the fact that the iPhone X has an almost bezel-free display, Apple has been able to cram in a wide-variety of replacement Screen Edge Gestures, which not only replace the home button’s functionality but expand on it also.
There’s no doubting though that these new gestures require a little time to get used to, which is why we’ve put together this handy gesture guide to navigating throughout the iOS UI on an iPhone X with no home button. Before we get to the gestures proper though, let’s quickly run over the new iPhone X definitions so we’re all on the same page when we get to the explaining (see boxout).
