The bezel-free OLED display of iPhone X is primed to rev up media viewing. And I truly appreciate it. But with the arrival of the edge-to-edge display; Home button, which had been a shining star for a decade, has been completely eliminated. With this button removed, the method of quite a few functionalities has changed for the better. Case in point: the process of switching apps on iPhone X has also been slightly tweaked.
So, how do you use app switcher on iPhone X? Thanks to the swipe gesture, multitasking continues to be a smooth-sailing affair on the new smartphone. Find out how it works!

Step #1. Simply press the screen at the bottom and then swipe up. Then, you need to pause in the middle of the screen (while still touching the screen)
Step #2. Next, a card will come up from the left side of the screen. That’s app switcher mode.
Step #3. Now, just swipe left or right to scroll between the opened apps (just the way you used to switch between apps on your old iPhone.)
