How to activate Reachability Mode on iPhone X

The easy reach mode (Reachability) is the solution Apple offered when it launched its first 5.5″ terminal to reach all the options on the screen.

Thanks to this function, we can use our iPhone Plus with one hand , on the iPhone X this option is still present.

Activating it is really simple, but it comes a little more “hidden” than in other occasions. If you have trouble, for example, activating the control center , this function will be really useful.

  1. We go into Settings
  2. Click on “General”
  3. Now let’s go to “Accessibility”
  4. We marked “Easy reach”

Now we have it activated . If we need to access the top of the screen, we simply have to slide the finger from the bottom down. The screen will automatically drop down so you can perform the action.

The new iPhone X has a 5.8″ diagonal screen, so many users may have difficulty reaching the end of the iPhone X with one hand, so activating the easy reach mode is a great solution to this “problem”.

On other iPhones, this is done by pressing the Home button a couple of times , so we get the same effect to make the screen go down to the middle of the device.

Now you know how you can activate the easy reach mode in a really simple way to enjoy this handy iOS feature on the new iPhone X.

What did you think of this option? Did you use it frequently on your iPhone Plus?
