How to navigate your iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, or iPhone XR — Apple Support


Voiceover: With iPhone X and later you’ll use gestures
to navigate, multitask, and access all of your favorite
features and apps. Let’s explore. To turn on your iPhone,
press and hold the side button. Then swipe up from the bottom
to unlock your screen, and authenticate with Face ID
or your passcode. To start, let’s take a look at
how to move between apps. To see all of the apps you have
open in the background, swipe up from the bottom edge
of the screen and pause. You can tap on any app
to open it. From time to time, you might need
to force close an app. To do this,
just swipe up on any open app. When you’re done,
swipe up from the bottom edge to get back to the Home screen. This gesture will bring you back
home at any time from any app. If you have multiple
Home screens, swiping up from the bottom
will bring you back to your main Home screen. You can also quickly cycle
through apps. Swipe along the bottom edge
of the screen to open your most recent app, and keep swiping to switch
to another. You can do this
from the Home screen or while using any app. To go to Control Center, swipe down from the top right
of your screen. From here,
you can quickly adjust settings and other handy iPhone features. Swipe up to go Home. To see your notifications, swipe down from the top
of your screen. Here, you’ll find
any recent notifications you may have missed, including notifications set
to be delivered quietly. Then swipe up from the bottom
to go home again. To search for something, swipe down from the middle
of the screen to bring up Spotlight,
like this. And swipe up to go home. Next up, Siri. To use Siri, just say,
“Hey Siri,” and make your request. Like, “Hey Siri,
text Brandon, “Can’t wait for you to visit
this weekend.”” Siri: Ready to send it?
[SIRI TONE] OK, it’s sent. Voiceover: You can also use Siri by pressing and holding
the side button. Open the Weather app. To take a screenshot, press the side button
on the right and the volume up button
on the left at the same time. Your screenshot will appear in the lower-left corner
of your device. You can press and hold
the screenshot to share it, tap it to add drawings,
and text with markup. Or swipe left on the screenshot
to dismiss it and find it
in your photos later. To buy something in a store
using Apple Pay, double-click
on the side button, glance at your iPhone
to authenticate with Face ID, then hold the top of your iPhone
near the payment reader. To put your iPhone to sleep,
press the side button. To wake it back up, just tap the screen
or raise your device. Then use Face ID to unlock it. Your iPhone can also
quickly call emergency services, like 911,
should you need them. To do this, continue to press and hold
the side button and one of the volume buttons. But before you test
this feature out, be careful. If you keep holding down
the buttons, your iPhone will play
a loud alert sound and will automatically
start an SOS call to your local
emergency services. You can tap Cancel to dismiss. If you ever need
to force restart your iPhone, press and quickly release
the volume up button, press and quickly release
the volume down button, and then press and hold
the side button until you see the Apple logo. To turn your iPhone off, just press and hold
the side button and either of the volume buttons
until the slider appears. Then slide to power off. And now you’re a pro
at navigating your iPhone. For more helpful tips like this, subscribe to

  1. I’m coming from an iPhone 6 to an iPhone X, so it’s actually kinda nice to see these videos. Especially since they’re so neatly organized and easy to follow.

  2. I have not been able to figure out something…I watch a YouTube video, the next video starts, I then want to go back to the previous video, to either watch it again, or show my family. There is no way to “go back.” No matter which way I swipe, it won’t go to the previous video. On a Droid, I just hit the back button.

  3. Yo! I noticed something weird going on with my XS Max. When I press Side Button for Siri, screen turns black automatically and Siri’s responded slower only on top notch speaker. Then I have to press the Side Button again TWICE to wake my phone up. I’d appreciate your clarification regarding this.

  4. I really needed a video like this! I’ve had this iPhone 6 for 2 1/2 years and needed an upgrade and just purchased the iPhone XS Max!

  5. Has anyone else notice that on iPhone Xs you need one more second to swipe left a notification while on iPhone 8 Plus that doesn't happen?

  6. can u help me please i delete my photo in my iphone X and i delete and in recoveri , but i need this photo because and icloud its my friend and i delete and this some photo ,,, please help me i am ready to pay more money ???

  8. I have problem with the new iPhone XS Max when it update it take very very long time to update can someone halp please

  9. Apple is mainly a manufactured phone focused on US consumers. And it is expensive for people of other countries. And it's not friendly in the way of the Android. Call recording will not be. True collar does not work in Apple on Android. Companies always have to make things in mind when people ask what they want. There is no law that people should say that they should take away what we gave you and give you the price we gave you. Apple has to get out of this kind of mindset. otherwise the days of Apple's history are not far off.

  10. Does anyone know how to maximise and minimise videos on iPhone X/Xs without having to press the button on the bottom right of the video?

    On my 6s I used to be able to pinch the screen to minimise/expand on YouTube.

  11. It seems lame that somebody might me watching this, but I have never had an iPhone I always go for android so nkw that I do I wanna learn how to use it right😂

  12. Is there anyway to go back while your in an application ex if I’m in messages and get a new message is there any trick that allow me to exit the message I’m in and go to the next message

  13. I am moving from android to iPhone and I know how to navigate everything it’s just I like watching these videos just Incase I miss anything

  14. LOL….annnnnd why are they doing this?. I got my 8Plus unlocked (it's law in Canada) and bought a Sim card that was useable in Fiji…..sign up for a 2nd plan??….I may be good looking but I am not stupid…look forward to 2020 when Apple will announce they no longer support 8 Plus and lower….Gonna get me a 1998 Nokia flip phone and be hella cool 🙂

  15. I talked to a REP @ AT&T and this guy told me that my new iPhone XS MAX is not 5G even though AT&T shows it on the iPhone he said when 5G rolls out you will have to BUY a NEW iPhone that is 5G ready. None of apples iPhones as of today are able to work on a 5G network. This is the reason why APPLE & AT&T are giving away a FREE iPhone XR with the purchase of a iPhone XS or XS Max with a new activation. APPLE is way to GREEDY as AT&T to ever give away a FREE iPhone. That is when I realized we have been taken those of us that fell for this free iPhone XR bull crap.

  16. 3:47 You can turn off the sound and also add in a feature that pressing the side button 5 times will also start an SOS call.
