During the first decade of iPhone's existence, the Home button was a reliable constant. Then, with iPhone X, it suddenly disappeared and since then all new iPhones (iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro) have end-to-end screens without the button.
In addition, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro do not have 3D Touch. Therefore, Apple has adapted iOS for ease of use without a Home button or pressure sensitive touches. Here is a quick guide to all the new gestures and button combinations you need to use a modern iPhone with iOS 13.
Back home page: Let's start with the most basic features of the Home button: Return home screen. Just swipe up at the bottom of the screen. Easy!
Wake up: You can even lift the phone to wake it up like other modern iPhones or tap the side button. Modern iPhones also support touch to activate: just touch the display to activate it.
Jump between apps: Swipe left or right along the bottom edge of the phone to switch between apps. You can click on the bottom corners by moving your finger up and up to “jump” between applications or simply swipe directly from side to side along the bottom edge.
Application Switcher: Want to see all your apps running? Swipe up from the bottom edge and pause for a second with your finger still on the display. App cards will pop up quickly and you can take your finger off and slide through them.
Close an app: You don't have to do this often, but if you need to delete an app from the app switcher (see above), just slide your finger on the app card. It does not have to be the top card, and you can slide multiple applications at the same time.
Take a screenshot: Just press the side button and the volume up button at the same time.
Rearrange and delete apps: The gesture of holding down to rearrange and delete apps has changed slightly on iOS 13. Tap and hold an app icon and you'll see a list of shortcuts you can do with that app. At the bottom of this list, you will see two options: Share (app name) (for third party applications) and Rearrange Apps.
Select Rearrange Apps and all your apps will rotate and have a cone (X) in the corner. Touch and hold apps to move, drag them over one another to create a folder. Tap the cone (X) to delete them. On the home screen, touch Done in the upper right corner to return to normal screen.
You can also enter the mode Rearrange Appssimply by holding down the app icon even after the shortcut list appears. Just touch and hold and keep holding until you reach the swinging apps state.
Haptic Touch: Newer iPhones don't have 3D Touch, but they do what 3D Touch used to do with a simple long press. Tap and hold a web link to see a preview window with a list of options (Open in Safari, Add Reading List, Copy Link, and so on). You can do the same with dates and times to quickly create calendar events or reminders, addresses to view them on Google Maps or get directions, and more.
Most icons in the Control Panel have secondary or expanded functions if you press them as well.
Accessibility: If you're having trouble accessing items at the top of your iPhone screen, this feature may help. Drag down on the bottom edge of the screen to change everything down. Drag up again (or wait a few seconds) to return to normal. Accessibility is disabled by default. You can enable it at Settings> Accessibility> Touch.
Notifications: You still slide down from the top of the screen, just like other iPhones. But on modern iPhones, with a camera notch and no Home button, there are two “swipe from the top of the screen” gestures; Swipe from the left side of the sensor notch to access your notifications.
Control Center: With the bottom of the screen consumed with other domestic gestures, the Control Center theft was moved to the top of the screen. Just slide on the right side of the sensor notch. The right "horn" if you want. The left side Notifications (see above).
Call Siri: Just press and hold the side button for a few seconds. When the Siri interface appears, you can issue your command or ask your question without saying "Hello Siri" first. Of course, you can still summon Siri without using your hands by saying, "Hey, Siri!"
Apple Pay: tap the side button twice. You will need to authenticate the purchase with Face ID or your access code. A tip: Do not hold the phone at the payment terminal, authenticate it and hold it again at the payment terminal. Just double-tap that side button and look at your iPhone to authenticate with Face ID in one swift motion, then touch it on the payment terminal.
Hang up and S.O.S.: to turn off the slider and S.O.S. , press and hold the side button and volume button for a few seconds. You will feel a quick tap-tap-tap.
Temporarily disable Face ID: The above command (holding down the side button and volume button) also temporarily disables the face ID. You must use your password to unlock the phone (after which Face ID functionality will be restored). This quick and easy gesture is designed to be done without looking, even in your pocket, with a touch-to-touch vibration to let you know it worked. That way, if your phone is taken from you or seized by the police, they won't be able to unlock it simply by holding it in your face.
Reset: Tap the volume up button, then tap the volume down button and press and hold the side button until the Apple logo appears (usually 10-20 seconds). If your iPhone does not respond, the first thing you should try.
Access your widgets: Swipe right on the first home screen to see your widgets. Scroll to the bottom to find an Edit button and adapt it to provide only the quick information you want to see.
Open the edit bar: What's new in iOS 13 is an edit bar that makes it a little easier to cut, copy, paste, undo and redo. In any text entry field, just touch the screen with three fingers, holding them for a second or two.
Undo and redo: If you don't want to use the edit bar, you can quickly undo or redo your last command or text entry. A three finger stroke to the left will be Undo and a three finger stroke to the right will be Redo.
Cut, copy and paste: If the edit bar is too slow for you, you can use some three finger gestures to cut, copy and paste in a flash. A three-finger pinch gesture copies the selected text. A second pinch of three fingers cut. Then simply do the reverse gesture (a three finger grip) to paste.
Move cursor: In any text input field, just tap and drag the cursor wherever you want. On iOS 13, Apple added a new way to move the cursor, and it's incredibly useful. Touch and hold the spacebar on the onscreen keyboard. You will see all the letter keys go blank and you can move the text input cursor by dragging your finger across the keyboard area like a touchpad.
Select text: Double-tap a word to select it, or double-tap a word to select the entire phrase. Tap four times to select an entire paragraph! Drag endpoints left or right to change your text selection.
Drag the scroll bar: iOS 13 lets you drag the scroll bar in almost all apps that have one. Twitter, Safari, Apple News, his name; If you see a scroll bar on the right side of the screen, touch and hold it until you feel some tactile feedback and the scroll bar increases. You can then drag it up and down to quickly fly up and down the page. If you're having trouble grabbing the scroll bar, try to stay a little farther from the edge of the screen. If you are near the edge, it will not work well.
Multiple Selection: In many applications that allow you to select items (such as Photos or Files), you can select multiple items by tapping and dragging with two fingers.
Remember that most gestures you slide from the edge of the screen don't require much precision. As long as you are somewhere near the edge, they should work. Apple indicates the bottom "gesture area" with a horizontal bar. Some applications have their own gestures on the edge of the screen (games in particular are known for this). If you're using an app with a gesture on the edge of the screen like the iPhone X general command, just repeat it. The first theft should execute the game command, but the second theft should execute the iOS system command.
