The iPhone X is the first iPhone without a Home button. In place of a physical button, Apple added a set of gestures that replicate the Home button  and add other options, too. If you really prefer to have a Home button on your screen, you have an option.​ Not only does the iOS include a feature that lets you add a virtual Home button to your screen, but you can also create custom shortcuts that make that virtual Home button do all kinds of things the traditional button can't. Here's everything you need to know.

NOTE: While this article mentions the iPhone X and its lack of a Home button, the instructions in this article apply to every iPhone.

In order to configure the virtual Home button with shortcuts, you first have to enable the Home button itself. Here's how:

  1. Tap Settings.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap Accessibility.
  4. Tap AssistiveTouch.
  5. Move the AssistiveTouch slider to on/green.
  6. At this point, the virtual Home button appears on your screen. Tap it to view the top-level menu (more on that in the next section).
  7. Once the button is present, you can control two preferences for it:
    1. Position: Position the button anywhere on your screen with drag and drop.
    2. Opacity: Make the button more or less transparent by using the Idle Opacity slider. The minimum setting is 15%.
