Hello, my name is Douglas Walker. Today, we'll be checking out our home screen gestures. Yeah, Apple now has several devices that no longer have a home button, so this has really changed the way that we interact with our home screen. The fact that we have no home button changes the way that we launch Siri. It also changes the way that we open our accessibility shortcuts, as well as how we close any of our open apps.
We also have home screen gestures for opening our control center, our notification center, as well as our app switcher. Now, this might seem like a lot, and it is, however, the more we use our home screen gestures the more we'll find that our muscle memory will just kick right in. So let's go ahead and check it all out.
Okay, we're using our iPhone in today's workshop. But no worries, because all of this will work pretty much the same whether we're using our iPhone, or our iPad.
Ed: Now that you've had a chance to learn a bit with us, we'd like to learn more about you: your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley, and your relationship to vision loss. Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don't worry: everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you'd prefer to talk through these questions, we're just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on, plus it connects you to the Hadley community and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts like me. Now, where were we?
