Apple made a number of compromises in its first bid to make
an “all-screen” handset, but among those key decision made was the ditching
of home button with its integrated Touch ID finger scanner, and replace it with
a Face ID biometric solution, achieved by the TrueDepth camera kit that
warranted a “notch” cutout at the top of the iPhone X display.

As a result, those coming from a legacy iPhone hit both a
muscle memory wall, and aspect ratio compatibility issues. Don’t cry and
suffer, though, as there is a way to go home sweet home, even on the iPhone X,
albeit in a virtual manner:

  • Go to Settings>General>Accessibility on your iPhone X;
  • Tap the AssistiveTouch option at the top, and turn on its
    switch;
  • Tap on the Customize top-level menu option, and mash on the
    minus sign until there is only one “Custom” star icon left out of the
    six initial options;
  • Tap in the custom icon, and pick “Home” from the
    long list of actions presented;
  • Set the transparency level when the Home button is not
    active to 20%, this way it won’t interfere visually when you are scrolling down
    in Safari and reading an article, for instance;
  • Hold the virtual Home key, and move it to the middle of the
    dock at the bottom of the iPhone X’s home screen;
  • Now each time you are feeling nostalgic, you can use the
    good old Home button, instead of the dreaded swipe-up gesture of your iPhone X.
    For unlocking the phone, though… well, that’s still going to be done via a
    simple glance at the phone, why do you think Apple went through all that Face
    ID kit trouble?
