For some of us, double-clicking the iPhone’s Home key to get to the multitasking bar at the bottom of the screen isn’t quite as easy as it sounds.
If you don’t (or can’t) click fast enough, you’ll just wind up back on the home screen, or maybe even on the “Spotlight” search page.
Well, here’s the thing: you can actually slow down the speed with which you need to double-click (or triple-click, as the case may be) the Home key, perfect for those of us lacking split-second reflexes.
- Tap Settings, General, Accessibility, then scroll all the way down and tap “Home-click Speed” (it’s under the “Physical & Motor” setting).
- Now, pick a new double-click speed—either Slow or Slowest.
- When you tap a new option, your iPhone will “buzz” three times to give you an idea of how quickly (or slowly) you need to double-click.
Bonus tipGot an iPad? If so, you can use a special four- or five-finger gesture to reveal the multitasking bar. Get the details right here.
