How to Adjust iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR Side Button Double-click or Triple-click Speed

Some of you might be surprised to know that there is an option to customize the click speed of the side button. If you find the multitasking button a bit too fast or too slow, follow this upfront guide to adjust double-click or triple-click speed for the side button on your iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR.

With the iconic Home button gone for good, the Side button has stepped up to fill the void. Knowing how efficiently the ON/OFF button carries out multiple tasks like authenticating payment, activating Siri, triggering Emergency SOS and more, I’ve got used to it. To provide a bit better control; iOS lets you customize the click-speed of your iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR (pretty much the way the OS used to allow you to fine-tune the click speed of the Home button on the older iPhones).

So, just in case you find the sleep/wake button a tad too fast or sluggish, you can choose to fine adjust its speed depending on your convenience. Let me show you how it’s done the quick way!

You can choose any of the options based on your need. For instance, if you find the click a bit too fast to handle, go for the Slow option. And if you want the click speed to be very slow, choose the slowest.
