iPhone X Accessibility: What We Know So Far


The iPhone X is Apple’s Brand new iPhone, with a full sized screen, no bezel, at 5.8 inches. Perhaps one of the biggest points is that Apple has removed the beloved Home Button, so How can this phone be accessible? Here is what we know so far. This article will be updated as information becomes available.

  • Triple click Home, which is a customizable accessibility shortcut to activate functions such as VoiceOver and Zoom, has been changed to triple pressing of the side button on the right side of the Phone.
  • To open Notification Center, find the left status bar and then flick down with three fingers.
  • To open control Center, find the right status bar, and then flick down with three fingers.
  • FaceID supports VoiceOver: You can turn off the need for the eyes to be focused in accessibility settings.

Again, we will continue to update this article as new information becomes available. Let us know on Twitter or in the comments if you know of something, and we will update the article accordingly.
