Some tips and tricks for IPHONE series X
GET THE HOME BUTTON BACK
If you’ve come from an iPhone 7 or iPhone 8, you might be missing the Home button. While you can’t get a physical Home button back, there is a way to use a software Home button on the iPhone XS using an Accessibility feature.
Go to Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> AssistiveTouch and define shortcuts for single tap, double tap, long press and 3D Touch for the AssistiveTouch button. For Single touch, define it to go Home. You can use define other gestures features to define features you find difficult to access.
Create Your Own Memoji
The iPhone XS vastly improves how Portrait Mode photos are captured. Not only does it have a much better bokeh effect, but you can also now go in and edit the background blur for any portrait mode shot later on.
Go to Photos, select a Portrait Mode photo and tap on Edit. Now, you’ll see a slider below that will let you change the background blur from f/1.4 to f/16 aperture.
Record Videos in 4K
The iPhone XS now lets you record audio in stereo mode! But the default video recording resolution is still set to 1080p. If you want to make use of the awesome new camera, you should try capturing footage in 4K. Go to Settings -> Camera -> Record Video and switch to 4K.

There’s a new way to get into the Hard Reset mode on the iPhone XS. This is just an advanced reboot, it won’t wipe any data. Press Volume Up, then Volume Down and then quickly hold the Side button until you see the Apple logo on the screen.
