Edited by Grimm, Courtney, Jen M
You're watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, we are going to show you how to turn button shapes On and Off for your iPhone 6.
To begin, we will press the circular button at the bottom center of our iPhone.
This is the Home button.
Alternatively, we can also press the Power or Lock button.
This button is located on the upper, right side of the device.
Then, we will swipe across the Lock screen to access the main Home screen of the phone.
If there is a password setup like shown, we need to enter the passcode.
We can also press our finger down on the Home button to use the Touch ID sensor.
Once we have accessed the main Home screen, we will need to find the 'Settings' icon.
This icon is a grey and silver box shape, with several circular gears inside of it.
Once the 'Settings' icon is found, give it a single press.
Once we have pressed the 'Settings' icon, we will now be looking for the 'General' icon.
The 'General' icon is the top label, in the third section. It also features a gear shaped icon.
A single press on the 'General' label will open up the 'General' panel.
On the 'General' panel, we are going to scroll down until we find the 'Accessibility' option.
This is indicated by the word 'Accessibility', and has a small arrow on the right hand side.
Tap down on this panel, this will take us to the 'Accessibility' panel.
On the 'Accessibility' menu, we are looking in the second section, for the panel labeled 'Button Shapes'.
We will see now that 'Button Shapes' is currently turned off.
If we press the button on the right hand side of the panel one time, it will turn on 'Button Shapes'.
You will note now that 'General', which is a button option, has a shape that has been applied around it. Meaning that we can now quickly and easily identify menu button options.
If we press again on the 'Button Shapes' switch, we can look at 'General' and we will note the shape has disappeared.
For further example purpose, we will turn 'Button Shapes' on and go back through the menu options.
Press on 'General' to return to the 'General' options menu.
This icon is located in the upper, left-hand corner of the screen.
We will see here that 'Settings' has also been listed with a Button Shape.
If we press back by tapping 'Settings', we will now be in the 'Settings' area once again.
We will now be shown the Main menu options, with no secondary options to choose from.
However, if we choose another option, we will now have the option to go back to 'Settings'.
For this example, we have chosen the 'Mail, Contacts, Calendars' panel.
Should we then tap on the 'iCloud' panel, we will see that we also have the 'Mail' option within a shape, which we can press to go back.
Each of these icons indicates that there is another option for us to go back to.
If we double press the Home button, we will have the option of closing this panel.
We can do this by pressing down on the panel, and swiping up.
Then we can press down once on the Home screen panel.
This will bring up the Home Screen.
Now we can go back to using our phone with the newly added Button Shapes.
Anytime we access a menu or a function of the phone that has several menu options or back options, we will quickly and easily be able to identify the part of the screen where we need to press in order to perform the desired function.
This concludes our tutorial on how to add Button Shapes to your iPhone 6.
