Button Settings Home Iphone 6

Yesterday we learned what the virtual Home button on the iPhone screen is like, that in the settings it is called AssistiveTouch and learned how to turn it on and off. When pressed, the virtual button on the screen turns into a menu with 6 buttons, some of them contain a number of functions, for example, the Device button.

Such a number of buttons and subsections in this menu is not convenient for everyone, so we decided to configure the AssistiveTouch and create our own menu for the on-screen virtual iPhone button, leaving only the necessary elements. We will create several options, one of which you can choose for yourself. To whom menu options do not fit, you can create your own.

Where to customize the AssistiveTouch on-screen button

The first thing we will do is adjust the transparency of the virtual button itself, which is constantly located on the screen in idle mode. If it is an eyesore, we will make it more transparent, if on the contrary, the user has a vision problem, then standby transparency can be turned off and the virtual button will be clearly visible on the iPhone screen, as if in a touch state.

The degree of transparency, like other AssistiveTouch settings, can be found here:

We launch the Settings application, go to the Basic, then. Universal Access and AssistiveTouch. Here we select. Opacity at rest, and set the degree of transparency of the virtual Home button.

Only home. Home button broken

If the physical Home button does not work on the iPhone, without 3D-Touch support, then some users configure the virtual button on the screen so that when it is pressed, the menu does not open, but just the usual press of the usual Home button works, do the following:

  1. In the action settings AssistiveTouch go to the section. One touch.
  2. And choose. Home

Now you do not need to make unnecessary movements by clicking on the virtual button, the usual pressing of the Home button is triggered, without displaying the AssistiveTouch menu. The function will be relevant for users of the new iPhone X, who in no way can wean the button!

But if in the menu with the AssistiveTouch settings in your iPhone model there is a subsection. 3D Touch, and this option is enabled, then just press the virtual button a little and it will also work, but it’s just not very convenient, since the virtual 3D Touch Home does not work double-clicking to call, for example, the multitasking panel.

AssistiveTouch menu if the Power button is broken

If the iPhone’s on and off button breaks down, you can configure your own special menu that will appear when you press the virtual Home button located on the phone’s screen.

You can see an example in the screenshot below. Our menu consists of 4 buttons, each of which uses a virtual press of the Power button. If you want to make a similar menu in your iPhone, then we perform several actions:

  1. In the AssistiveTouch settings (who already forgot where they are, see the text above, where we set the transparency of the button), select. Top-level menu
  2. In the opened page with the minus sign (-) we leave only 4 icons
  3. Now we touch each icon and set our own commands for them: Lock screen, Reboot, SOS, Screenshot.
  4. After applying the command to each button, do not forget to click the button. Finish, located in the upper right corner.

Now check, we press the Home screen button, which should show our 4 buttons, each of which can help with the inactive power button, it is also the screen lock.

Virtual Home menu with inactive volume buttons

If the volume buttons are junk or do not function, then you can make a 3-button virtual menu that will help you adjust the sound volume:

Using the AssistiveTouch settings that we did above, you need to compose a menu with volume buttons and they will appear in your menu.

In general, you can customize any combination of virtual buttons for yourself and use them on your iPhone for convenience.
