    Default Re: Assertive Touch??

    If you're referring to AssistiveTouch, I've used it for years.
    Many find it annoying.
    I find it indispensable.
    Good Luck

    I use Assistive Touch all the time. I do all my screen shots with it. Very convenient and helps not wear out buttons.
    Have trouble pulling up the control center because of the case? Use Assistive Touch.

    Default Assertive Touch??

    I use it all the time as well. At first the fading button use to get on my nerves, but now I barely notice it until I need it.

    Thought it was annoying at first but I can't imagine not using it now. It's a great tool.

    The button annoyed me at times. I put it on the home button triple click to dismiss it. It's on screen most of the time though.

    I've used it when home button on iP 4 gave up, don't like it, spoils the look of the screen.

    But you can use the triple click to remove the button.

    Or not activate it at all if you don't like it. That's what I've done. Sounds like that's what @Wotchered is saying.

    Sounds like he said it (the button) spoiled the look of the screen. I pointed out he could remove the button with the triple click.

    I use it for screen shots and app switcher. To me it makes me feel better that I'm not abusing the home button too much. I'm addicted to killing my apps (even though it was proved that that does not increase the battery) it's a hard habit to break. Lmao

    Update......I don't use assistive touch any longer now that the iPhone 7 and 7plus have the haptic home button. Man I love that thing.

    Default Assistive Touch??

    I use Assistive Touch mostly for screenshots. It's a lot easier than pressing the home and power buttons at the same time.

    Never knew about this feature. May try it sometime as I do end up using the home button on my 6S a fair bit for tasks AssistiveTouch would help with.
