Reachability made its debut with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, to offset the larger screen size. Since then it has become a basic feature of all iPhone (except the iPhone SE), including the iPhone X, XS, XS Max e XR Templates. However, it is a bit more complicated to use because there are no Home buttons on these new flagships.

Make sure your iPhone X has iOS 11.1 or later (the XS, XS Max e XR have iOS 12 by default), follow the guide below and you will reach the top of the iPhone without Home buttons in no time.
