Assertive what? Assertive Touch.
This is something you actually might find useful one day. This won’t be a useful post if you have a new iPhone. This post is for those who have an iPhone of 5+ years old.
After a few months (and a lot of wear and tear) the home button doesn’t always respond and that’s when you will need the Assertive Touch feature. Its a “home” button, but it floats on your screen. I remember when I used it on my older iPhone that it did feel a little inconvenient, but after a while, you get used to it.
It also gives you access to shortcuts that you can customize on Favorites menu. You can rotate your screen, shake, lock, adjust volume and mute your phone simply by using the”Device” option. It’s actually a great little feature!
This awesome feature is not only available on the iPhone, but also on the iPod and iPad!
There is quite a bit one can do with this little feature. Save yourselves the drama, time and some cash for the unnecessary repair. I found this video that explains this feature quite nicely.
If you want to activate your Assertive Touch Button you can follow these easy steps:
– Settings (scroll down)
– General (scroll down)
– Accessibility (scroll down)
– Assertive Touch (scroll down)
– and switch it on.
