A visual guide to iPhone X and iPad Pro screen gestures



When Apple removed the Home button from the iPhone X and iPad Pro, it created some new moves to compensate for the lack of the physical button. These gestures work (from July 2019) on the iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max and Xr, as well as on the 2018 iPad Pro models. If you are unfamiliar with these movements when moving from an older iPhone or iPad model, things can be a little confusing. Today, we are going to alleviate that confusion with a visual guide to screen gestures for Apple devices without home buttons.

These movements are in effect for iOS 12. Should the movements change in iOS 13, we will update this post with the new information.
