Setup and Use Reachability on iPhone 6
Edited by Grimm, Rushell, Eng
You are watching VisiHow. Today, we are going to show you how to set up and use Reachability on your iPhone 6.
To start off with, let's give a single press to the Home button at the bottom of the phone.
That will take us to the lock screen.
We can then press and hold our fingerprint on the scanner, which will open up our phone.
You may have a different way of entering your phone, such as entering a PIN or pass-code.
You should now be on the Home screen of your phone, where you will be looking for the Settings icon.
Tap once on Settings to open that menu.
Now, scroll down to General and press that.
At the General Settings screen, go down to Accessibility.
Tap on that.
At the Accessibility screen, scroll down until you find Reachability.
It is close to the very bottom.
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.
When you have Reachability on, double press the Home button.
Swipe up to close the Settings window, and then simply tap on the Home screen to return to it.
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. This concludes our tutorial on how to set up and enable Reachability on the iPhone 6. You have been watching VisiHow, and I do hope that this video has been both helpful and informative to you.
