Hidden iPhone X Gestures

After the WWDC 2018 conference, Apple added new Animoji and personalized Memoji for iPhone X on iOS 12. Plus, also added two sets functions of Face ID, unlock, slide and close background apps. Will there be new gestures? This answer has already been revealed in the follow-up iOS Memory Deep Dive meeting. Apple showed developers the iPhone X hidden gesture operation that most people don’t even know. It can be noticed that the gesture operation is not only implemented on iOS 12 but also iOS 11. This article will show you how to use these three iPhone X hidden gestures.

1. Quick App Switcher
In the past, to open the app switcher in iPhone X, you need swipe up from the bottom of the screen. Now, once you click to open an app, you just need to immediately swipes upwards from bottom and hold , it will immediately enters the app switcher mode. You need to do this quickly.


2. Return to The Home Screen and Switch Pages Immediately
Slide the screen from the bottom up to return to the home screen. You can switch the home screen right away without the need to wait until the animation is completely reduced.


3. Engage to Browse Photos Within The App Before The App is Completely Opened
If you want to use the built-in photo App to look for a photo taken previously, you can browse within the photo app even before the app is completely opened.


The above three gestures need to do it with a quick hand. The first two gestures can be use on iOS 11 and iOS 12. However, the third gesture might need to be done by a super fast hand, because the speed of the application is too fast. Maybe the iOS version for three or four years later, this gesture can be activated easier when the App started to run slower. Hopefully this tutorial will help iPhone X users to learn more advanced hidden gesture.
