Apple’s flagship smartphones in recent years differ significantly from previous iPhones, so questions may arise about how to use it. The iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and iPhone X lack the Home button, and those who used to use it to turn on the screen will have to get used to new ways.
That’s right, the familiar circle at the bottom of the display, present on the iPhone since its inception, is gone. Since the iPhone 5s, a fingerprint sensor has been integrated into the button and unlocking the device has been a breeze. I pressed a button – the smartphone scanned my finger – easy and simple.
Now neither the Home button nor the fingerprint scanner anymore. How to activate the screen now, you ask. There are several ways to do this, which we will discuss below.
