In this article, I am going to tell you how you can enable reachability in the latest iPhone 12 models. Reachability is the most amazing feature that is only available on Apple devices. This feature is mostly used by users who have iPhones with a large display like iPhone 12 pro max, iPhone 11 pro max, iPhone xs max, and more.
What Is Reachability?
The Reachability feature was first introduced with iPhone 6 and 6 plus. This feature shrinks the bottom half of the iPhone’s display for one-hand usage. The top half of the iPhone’s display then reached down, making it easy for the user to access the status bar and other user interface elements located on the top-left and the top-right corner of the iPhone’s display.
On older iPhones like iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 plus. The user should enable reachability features by tapping the home button twice. Since iPhone X and onward there is no physical home button the reachability feature has been programmed to work with a simple gesture.
How To Enable Reachability On The Latest iPhone 12 Models
To find how you can enable the reachability feature on iPhone12 models and other iPhone models without a physical home button read the following method.
- Open the Settings app.

In the latest, IOS 14 Apple has introduced a new back-tap feature. The default function of this gesture is to capture a screenshot of the iPhone’s display.
