As expected, Apple has ditched the home button in order to make the iPhone X bezel free. As we have been using iPhone for a decade and have become habitual to the physical button, we will miss it, at least for some days.
On earlier iPhones, the basic tasks are performed by an average iOS user with home button includes, Activating Siri, go to home screen, switching between apps, and other tasks that require Touch ID. Since there is no home button on iPhone X, it’s quite obvious that the question arises how to use iPhone X without home button? I started looking for the way and here is what I found.
