Set Up Accessibility Shortcuts on iPhone 6
Grimm, Ron Cruz, Eng
You're watching VisiHow and today we're going to show you how to set up accessibility shortcuts on your iPhone 6.
To start with, give the home button, which is located on the bottom of the screen, one press
That press will take us to the lock screen
You can then swipe across the lock screen to enter a PIN or directly enter your phone if you don't have a PIN set up
Once in the phone, you should be on the home screen
On the home screen, you should see the silver and gray settings icon which looks like a series of gears in a square. Tap on the settings icon.
This will open up the settings menu
Once you are in the settings menu, you will scroll down to the third section looking for General. Tap General.
You will then look for accessibility and tap on it one time
It is also in the third section.
The accessibility menu is broken up into several sections
It starts with vision then hearing, media, learning, interaction and finally at the very end you will see accessibility shortcut. Tap on accessibility shortcut.
You will see a number of options, and there could be more added on later depending on the development of iOS
Tap on Zoom, which will give me the accessibility shortcut to Zoom.
Tap on the home button in order to get back to the home screen
Tap the home button three times
Now my text is zoomed in
To scroll around, use 3 fingers to press and hold to navigate the screen
If you want to move the zoom window, press and hold the small tab with one finger to drag it up and down
When you are finished and no longer want to have the zoom function enabled, triple press the home button quickly and it goes away
To close open Windows in the background, double press the Home button quickly and swipe the Windows up to close them so we are not draining our battery power
Then tap Home again to get back to the Home screen.
Many of you may be wondering what the use of the Zoom function is
If you have poor eyesight, it's one way of easily improving that. Also, the zoom function will allow you to zoom in on content that you might not be able to zoom in to using the native functionality of the iPhone 6. This concludes our tutorial on how to set up accessibility shortcuts on the iPhone 6. If you need any additional assistance please let us know on the comment section below.
