THERE’S a life-changing iPhone ‘swipe hack’ that millions should be using.

After all, it can often be difficult to reach the top of the iPhone screen.

That’s especially true if you’re using a giant model like the new iPhone 14 Pro Max.

But Apple invented a solution for this problem many years ago, and it’s called Reachability.

The little-known iPhone features allow you to quickly move the top of the screen down.

This makes it much easier to reach the top part of the screen.

Apple says: “When using iPhone with one hand in portrait orientation, you can use Reachability to lower the top half of the screen so it’s within reach of your thumb.”

The feature has been around for years, so your iPhone certainly supports it.

You need an iPhone 6 or later, so all core models launched in 2014 or later will support it.

To turn it on, go into the Settings app and look for Accessibility.

Now tap on Touch and then turn on the Reachability feature.

So how do you use Reachability? It depends on your iPhone model.

If you’re using an iPhone with Face ID, you’ll swipe down on the bottom edge of the screen.

And if your iPhone has a Home button, double-tap it lightly.

When you want to go back to full screen mode, just tap the top half of the screen.

Practical!

There’s another iPhone hack that can come in handy if you’re struggling to get hold of your handset.

It’s called the one-handed keyboard, and it’s a game-changer.

Enabling it allows you to easily type with just one hand.

It’s great if you hold onto a strap on the bus or have a cup of coffee with you.

First, go to the app you want to type in and make sure the keyboard is open.

Then look in the bottom left corner and tap and hold the emoji face or world symbol.

When you hold down the emoji or world symbol, a small “Keyboard Settings” box should appear and on the bottom row you will see three different keyboard symbols.

Tap the symbol on the left to get a keyboard that’s easier to type on with just your left hand.

Tap the symbol on the right to get a keyboard that’s easier to type on with just your right hand.

When you’re done using your one-handed keyboard, you can go back to normal by holding down the emoji or world symbol in the bottom corner and selecting the middle keyboard option.
