Hello, my name is Douglas Walker. Today we will be checking out our home screen gestures. Now, Apple has been slowly moving away from devices that have a home button. So, this is really changed the way that we use our home screen.
The fact that we no longer have a home button changes the way that we'll launch Siri. It also changes the way that we will open our accessibility shortcuts, as well as how we will close any of our open apps. We've also been given new VoiceOver gestures for opening our Control Center, our Notifications Center, as well as our app switcher. Now, this might seem like a lot of changes and it is. However, these new gestures really are quite intuitive. So, how about we jump right in.
