How to Enable Accessibility on iPhone X

When Apple adopted bigger screens As of the iPhone 6, one of its main arguments against large cell phones went down: the fact that it is quite difficult to reach the upper corners when you are using only one hand. To resolve this, she implemented a function called Achievability, which with two taps on the Touch ID (without pressing) causes the system screen to be pulled down, allowing the thumb to reach the top.

But how to do this on iPhone X, which does not have the Touch ID?

That is what we will show in this article.


For some very strange reason, Reachability is not active by default when you take the iPhone X out of the box for the first time. You must manually activate the option in Settings. Follow the step by step:

Step 1: Open the System Settings.

Step 2: Touch the ‘General‘.

Step 3: Touch the ‘Accessibility‘.

Step 4: Look for the item ‘Achievability‘between the options and activate it.

There, the function is activated on your iPhone X.


How to use reachability

On iPhone X everything works by gestures. To bring the top of the screen closer to your thumb, you need to run your finger along the bottom edge of the screen, as shown in the following illustration:

The first few times it is not easy and you are likely to make several attempts without success. But once you get the hang of it, the whole thing happens naturally.
