4 It’s Gesture-Based
The iPhone X is “all-screen,” as Apple puts it. The edge-to-edge design allows for a 5.8-inch OLED display and a seriously impressive screen-to-body ratio, but it leaves little room for the Home button that’s been standard to all iPhones since the very first. In place of the analog button, Apple has introduced a new set of gesture-based controls to the iPhone X’s operating system. A swipe-up from the bottom brings you home, and a swipe-up-and-pause will activate multitasking.
