Apple iPhone X has been given many unprecedented changes. All the features present in earlier versions of iPhone can no longer be seen on iPhone. The Touch ID which was earlier present in iPhone can’t be seen in iPhone X. It has been replaced with Face ID. It means that the bezel around the display had disappeared and along with it the home button is gone. Now, the Apple users have gestures to operate the phone. Navigating in iPhone has reached the next level of technology.
The home button used to control most of the stuff in the previous version of iPhone, but now it no longer exists. Instead of it, you can now find a small bar placed at the bottom that controls everything. It also acts as an app switcher by switching between the apps. Controlling things with this mini bar is easy.
However, if you have been a previous iPhone user or you own another Apple device like iPad, getting habitual to the bar would be bit challenging. However, we have a way out for you. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
