The new iPhone X works and functions differently from their previous models. For instance, there is no home button and no fingerprint sensor. Assuming this is a template for iPhone products in the future, here are some tips that will help you navigate your new iPhone X.

  • Hidden Battery Percentage

For the iPhone X, Apple has hidden the battery meter, so if you do not see your battery levels on your home screen, have no fear. All you have to do is to access the control centre to see it.

  • Hidden Alert Notifications

Apple has also hidden all alert notifications on the iPhone X as a default setting. This means that you won’t get any alert notifications if you’re not actively using your phone at the time. This is a privacy setting and can be adjusted in the control centre.

  • Facial ID

A lot of folks were wary about the facial ID feature of the iPhone X when it was first announced. You’d be glad to know that the facial recognition feature works perfectly fine. All you need to do is take the time to properly set it up.

  • Creative Selfies

With the new true depth front camera and dual rear cameras, the possibilities that exist with pictures– particularly selfies– are almost endless. Get ready take some amazing pictures with your new iPhone.

  • Swipe Navigation

With the absence of a home button, swiping has become the most important navigation tool for the iPhone X. Unlike with past models where you could afford to ignore the swiping tutorials, it’s important to pay attention to all the tutorials on swiping with the iPhone X. This will help you enjoy the device to the fullest.
