Has the content of your iPhone ever suddenly moved down so it occupies only the bottom half of the screen?

Does this keep happening?

Reachability Impact

What The Hell Is Going On?

You’ve stumbled across a feature of iOS called Reachability.

The purpose is to make screen content easier to reach if you’re using one hand.

You initiate this by double-tapping the Home button.

… something you can easily do accidentally.

Can I Turn This Annoying Feature Off?

Of course.

Or this post would be an inane waste of time 🙂

  • Tap Settings
  • Tap General

Reachability Access

  • Tap Accessibility
  • Scroll down until you see the Reachability toggle switch.
  • If the switch is green, Reachability is on. Tap the switch, it will turn white and Reachability is turned off.

Reachability Settings

There’s many other cool settings in Accessibility that are worth taking a look at. I’ve covered some in these posts:
