    Reachability turns on automatically with the phone by default.
    However, you may have turned it off accidentally or had someone else playing with your phone who turned it off. In which case, this is where you would turn it back on. The switch on the right side will be green when it is on.

    Now, we will demonstrate Reachability.
    This feature requires two short taps to the Home screen button. In this case, we want to quickly tap two times on the button. When we do this, the icons at the top of the screen will move down, allowing me to more easily reach them with one hand, hence the term reachability.

    Two quick taps, and the icons come down.
    After ten seconds, they will automatically go back up without me doing anything.

    However, if I want the icons to go back up earlier, I can tap at the top of the screen, and they will return to their original position at the top.

    This feature enables you to more quickly reach the icons on your phone.
    Some of you may have wondered while using your phone why it drops down occasionally. This is why it does that, Reachability. It's a built-in function, and it is actually helpful, especially if you have an iPhone 6 Plus, or you have small hands.
