The hidden gesture for switching apps on the iPhones start button «iOS and iPhone :: Gadgethacks



I love my iPhone 8 Plus, but the allure of modern iPhone gestures is sometimes more enticing than I want to admit. I imagine that many of you with a home button iPhone feel the same. What if I told you that your iPhone is suitable for iPhone X-like gestures? You can even use a gesture to switch between apps. Welcome to the future.

The gesture itself actually requires a little force. Why? It is a 3D Touch gesture. If you press hard on the left edge of your screen, you will see the window "pop" a bit. Press down again to fully open the app switcher (GIF # 1) or pull the switcher itself open (GIF # 2). You can also switch to the last opened app by making a complete swipe after the first pop (GIF # 3).

From left to right: pop in app switcher; swipe to app switcher; swipe to previous app.

It is not as smooth as switching between apps on an iPhone X, but it works well. Surprisingly, Apple removed this feature with the release of iOS 1

1. Although iPhone X users didn't have to worry when they got their new phones, we home button users were so frustrated by the omission that Apple brought the gesture back into iOS 11.1. [19659005] Don't Miss It: You browse your iPhone incorrectly – much faster this way
