How to Use iPhone X Without a Complete Home Button — iPhone X doesn’t have a Home button. Here’s how to unlock (or turn off) your device, turn on Siri, use Apple Pay, take screenshots and use other related Home button functions on iPhone X.
So how do you unlock the device, go to the Home screen, activate Siri, turn on the app switcher and perform all the other functions accessed via the Home button? With gestures, or alternate buttons, or with your face. In this tutorial the admin will explain how how to use iPhone X even without home button.
How to Unlock Your iPhone X
The iPhone X doesn’t have Touch ID, as the fingerprint scanner is usually located on the Home button (RIP) and Apple has decided not to move it to the back of the device or pin it to the screen. Besides Touch ID, you also still get Face ID.
To unlock your iPhone X, you just have to pick up the device and look at it – by default you need to make eye contact, a deliberate feature designed to stop people from unlocking your phone when you’re asleep or unconscious. This method will successfully unlock your iPhone X if used as closely as possible.
Note that this will not automatically take you to the Home screen, it will only unlock the device – visible by the lock icon present at the top of the screen. You will then need to swipe up from the bottom, or activate one of the other features available from the lock screen (like the camera).
How to Use Apple Pay on iPhone X
The loss of the Touch ID fingerprint scanner has also had an impact on Apple Pay. It is also now verified by facial recognition or facial recognition. You have to double-tap the side button (formerly known as the power button), look at your iPhone to verify your identity, then hold the device near the contactless terminal to complete the transaction.
If you use Apple Pay online or in an app, the situation is slightly different – you double-press and authenticate, and the transaction must be completed within 30 seconds. Otherwise, you will have to double press and perform authentication again.
How to Return to Home Screen on iPhone X
The original and most detailed Home button takes you back to the Home screen from anywhere. It’s now done with a gesture: swipe from the top of the screen, as you normally would to open Control Center. There’s a small cafeteria at the bottom of the screen – except when it fades during video playback and the like – to remind you of this. Also note that it’s possible to get the iPhone X to display the Home button on the screen looking more difficult.
How to Access Control Center on iPhone X
Speaking of Control Center, it is now activated by swiping down from the top right corner of the screen.

And the top left edge is used for something else.

How to Switch From One App to Another on iPhone X
As usual you can return to the Home screen, find the app icon and tap to open it, but if you want to know the old way of double-pressing the Home button, which is used to bring up the app switcher then take a look below.
Swipe up from the bottom of the screen (in the little bar), as you would to return to the Home screen, but this time hold your thumb or fingertip on the screen for a few moments, until the app switcher appears. Now you can swipe left or right to scroll through recently opened apps, then tap on one to open it.
If you don’t want to bother with the app switcher and just want to jump back to the previous app, you can swipe across the entire bar at the bottom of the screen. Some early adopters find it easiest to do small semi-circles, across and then down, but experiment to find the best and most effective for you.
How to Take Screenshots on iPhone X
You can’t take a screenshot on your iPhone X by pressing the Home and power buttons at the same time, because you don’t have a Home button. Instead you now press the volume up button and the power/side button at the same time.
The screen will flash white and thanks to the new iOS 11 screenshot feature, you will see a small thumbnail of your screenshot in the bottom left. You can tap this to add an annotation or share it, swipe left to make it disappear or just wait.
How to Activate Siri on iPhone X
Press and hold the power button to turn on Siri – or say “Hey Siri“, as before and with estimates you enable this feature.
How to Turn Off iPhone X

Instead, you have to press and hold both the side button and the volume button. Again, hold them alone until the power-off slider appears, then swipe at it to turn off the phone.
