How to Enable and Use Reachability on Your iPhone 6/6 Plus

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are comparatively big with 4.7- and 5.5-inch screens respectively. When you are using the iPhone 6 in just one hand (or using the iPhone 6 Plus normally), reaching the top of the screen/display can become almost impossible. That’s where the feature called Reachability pops in. And here’s how to enable Reachability in your iPhone 6/6+.

While your longing to have a big iPhone has truly come true, folks with short fingers can find it hard to use the big iPhones. There are times you would want to use the ultra-big iPhone with just one hand. But due to its huge size, you may not be finding it efficient or, let’s say, comfortable.

How to Use Reachability in iPhone 6/6 Plus

Reachability lets you reach the top parts of an app (or of the homescreen) without having to reach all the way up.

  • Double-“tap” on the home button. Important: Don’t double-click. Just tap twice.

Now you can use your phone one handed as comfortably as you would ever want by just Double-Touching or Tapping on the Home Button. Remember, you have to double touch or tap your home button; and not double press or click. If you double press or click on the home button iOS app switcher will open.

Just by touching the home button twice, the top-half of the interface slides down thereby making it fairly easy for you to reach all controls.
