If you don’t (or can’t) click fast enough, you’ll just wind up back on the home screen.
Well, here’s the thing: you can actually slow down the speed with which you need to double-click (or triple-click, as the case may be) the Home key, perfect for those of us lacking split-second reflexes.
- Tap Settings, General, Accessibility, then scroll all the way down and tap “Home-click Speed” (it’s under the “Physical & Motor” setting).
- Now, pick a new double-click speed—either Slow or Slowest.
- When you tap a new option, your iPhone will “buzz” three times to give you an idea of how quickly (or slowly) you need to double-click.
Got an iPad? If so, you can use a special four- or five-finger gesture to switch between apps. Get the details right here.
