How to Use Accessibility Shortcut on iPhone X

Thanks to the side button, using Accessibility Shortcut on iPhone X is as straightforward as ever before. If you often use Accessibility features like VoiceOver, Display Accommodations, set up the shortcut in order to quickly turn on or off any feature. Follow this quick guide to find how it's done!

Accessibility Shortcut lets you easily turn on or off Accessibility features on your iOS device. Just triple-click the Home button on your device to access all the features you have enabled and then choose to select the one you want to use! But how do you use Accessibility Shortcut on iPhone X considering it doesn’t have the Home button?

On iPhone X, side button has been given the huge responsibility of handling multiple things. And, from what I have experienced so far, the button has lived up to the billing fairly well. Whether it’s activating Emergency SOS, authenticating payment, invoking Siri or triggering Accessibility Shortcut, side button is able to carry out the assigned tasks with good effect.
