The iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max models are perfect for those who wish to have big screens for easier reading. However, the downfall of a bigger device is that you have to stretch your hands much further to type, which can get tiresome. That’s why Apple included a feature that can make using your iPhone much easier, and it’s even available for iPhones with smaller screens as well.

What is the feature Apple is offering?

The feature is called Reachability, and it’s an accessibility feature that allows iPhone users to pull down the top of their screen displays to the middle of their screen. This makes everything much easier to reach with your thumb than it would normally be. Once the top of your screen is relocated to the middle, you can then operate your iPhone as normal, enjoying the perk of having a larger screen yet still allowing your hands to not have to do all that extra stretching.

How to activate Reachability

What if my iPhone has a home button?

If you have an older iPhone that comes with a home button, follow all the steps listed above to activate Reachability. Once it’s activated, double-tap your home button without pushing the button in. If you push the button in, it will reveal your recent apps tray, so make sure you’re just tapping it as you would if it were a touchscreen.
