iPhone X features the revolutionary design of the edge-to-edge display, at least for the Apple products, giving it a completely different look than what we are familiar with. After 10 years of being the most popular smartphone brand, they had to bring something new for their customers. So, they got rid of the Home button in the iPhone X and replaced it with a near-bezelless screen.

If you’ve been an iPhone user for a long time, then you would know that the Home button was an integral part of the smartphone and responsible for a number of actions. With the iPhone X, then Home button is replaced with simple gestures that you can use to access various options, like accessing the home screen and perform different tasks. In this article, we will see how you can switch between open apps on your iPhone X as in the previous iPhone models, we used to double-click on the Home button to use the app switcher.

How to Use App Switcher on iPhone X?

In the iPhone X, there are 2 different methods you can access the App Switcher panel and switch between the running apps easily. Let’s have a look at both of them!

Method 1: Access App Switcher

To go to the App Switcher panel and see all the apps running on your iPhone X, you simply need to press the bottom part of the screen and the swipe up and pause in the middle of the screen for a few moments. When you press long enough, you will see another card appear on the left-side of the screen indicating that you’ve successfully accessed the app switcher panel. You can now let go of the screen and swipe between apps to easily access them.

This method is useful when you have several apps open and you want to go back to the app that you opened sometime ago. If you’re working on only 2 different apps simultaneously, then this method is not really useful compared to the next method.

Method 2: Switch Between Open Apps

If you are just using 2 different apps at the same time and you want to switch between them, then you can do that easily with the iPhone X.

To do that, you simply need to swipe along the bottom-edge of the screen and cycle through the open applications. By swiping left-to-right, you will go to the previous apps and by swiping right-to-left, you will go to the next app.
