But you don’t have to wait until fall to change the Home key’s behavior.

Beyond its standard chores of taking you back to the home screen and letting you quickly switch between apps,

the Home key can also act as a shortcut to some of iOS’s handiest features,-For newest iPhone leaks-

Today we’re going to discuss one of these new features and how to implement it which might be a time saving option for you.

Home Button Accessibility Options

 

iOS has a bit of ground breaking features up it’s sleeves.

for example,

Voiceover will read aloud anything on the screen,

Grayscale renders all the colors on the display in shades of gray,

while Invert Colors reverses all the colors on the screen,

There’s also Assistive Touch and Switch Control,

Also an option that allows Night Mode in Safari

All those accessibility options are (somewhat inaccessibly) hidden behind a few layers of menus.

And then there’s a handy iOS setting that’ll let you access a slew of accessibility features with a triple-click of the Home button.

but there’s a handy setting that’ll let you get there with a triple-click of the Home button.

 

Tap Settings > General > Accessibility, then scroll all the way down and tap Accessibility Shortcut. Next go ahead and tap the accessibility features you use the most—you can tap one, all, or just a few of them.

Now, go back to the home screen and triple-click the Home button.

If you only selected one shortcut, that accessibility feature will immediately switch on. Triple-click the Home button again to turn off the accessibility option or to return to the shortcut menu.
