YOUR iPhone has a hidden button gesture that can make your life much easier.
Even if you’ve had an iPhone for years, you might never have heard of it.

It’s also possible to do this with the Home button if your iPhone has one.
You can set lots of different features to the “triple click” depending on you needs.
To find this clever iPhone hack, go into Settings > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcut.
Then choose the feature you want the most.
You can also change the activation speed of the clicks so that you don’t accidentally engage it.
The trick can be used to activate a Zoom function, or launch the iPhone’s built-in Magnifier camera.
And you can also use it to kick-start the Voice Control feature that lets you use the iPhone hands-free.
It’s also a great way to access Background Sounds.
This is a clever trick that plays white noise, rain or ocean sounds to help you get to sleep.
The three-click trick shouldn’t be confused with the similar five-click trick – which is a quick way to contact the emergency services.
Go into Settings > Emergency SOS to turn this feature on.
Then either press the side or top button five times to pull up the Emergency SOS slider.
Next drag the emergency slider to begin the call.
The iPhone will send your current location to your Emergency Contacts and the emergency services.
And the contacts will also receive updates if your location changes.
