Each trick will help you access your favorite applications faster and solve problems without taking forever.

1.Change apps in one second

If you’re like us, who have been using the iPhone since its launch in 2007, then what you miss most about the X model is the lack of a home button. Apple knows that this change involves getting used to a new way of switching between applications, and the solution couldn’t be simpler: sliding your finger up to the right at a 45-degree angle – it’s easier than you read.

2. Switch between the most recent apps in one gesture

Now, if you decide to switch from the application exchanger completely – we understand – you can switch between the last two or three recently used applications by sliding horizontally.

3. Close applications

With the iOS 11 and iPhone X, not everything is faster and better. Apple has made it difficult to force a program to close. To do this, tap the red subtraction icon in the upper-left corner of the app window you want to close, and then slide the app up. That’s it!

4. Make a screenshot

Without the start button, this is another process that changes a little, but not much. When you’re on the screen you want to capture, press and hold the volume up and power keys until the screenshot is made.

5. Forced restart

Just as sometimes we want to force the closing of an application, it is also important to force the reboot of the phone, something necessary when an app freezes without letting us use the rest of the iPhone. To do this, we only need to press both volume and power keys, all at the same time, until the device reboots.

6. Open the Control Center

Activating the Control Center on iPhone X is simple, but not that obvious. Just slide down from the upper-right corner of the screen, near the cut-out in the front of the camera.

7. Record and share your Animoji

Well, this is probably the part you’ve been waiting for, how to share the Animojis – basically the most popular feature of the iPhone X on YouTube. Besides, who doesn’t want to share the karaoke of their favorite song performed by their favorite emoji?

The sharing functionality of an Animoji is available in iMessage, but there is also a way to record and share it in any other messaging and social networking application. The first thing you need to do is activate the new screen recorder in iOS 11.

Now, to record, open a conversation in iMessage, tap the App Store icon, select Animoji, and slide it up to full screen. Then, open the Control Center **(see step
