Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video The Home screen and Home button, part of iOS 5: iPhone and iPod touch Essential Training.
In this video, I want to look at the Home button on the iPhone and iPod touch.…This is the Home button here on the front of the iPhone and its primary purpose…is to immediately get you back to your Home screen.…Now, when the screen is locked as it currently is here, pressing the Home button…is like pressing the Sleep/Wake button.…It activates your screen but you still have to slide your finger across this…area to unlock the phone.…This is the Home screen of the iPhone, where you can access the various…functions and apps that are available.…As we'll see later, you can install additional apps which can be spread across…multiple screens, which can access by flicking the screens to the left.…
Pressing the Home button instantly brings you back to the first and main screen…no matter how many screens deep you are.…If you're running an app, pressing the Home button always brings you back to the Home screen.…Pressing the Home button while on the Home screen brings up the spotlight Search…screen, where you can search your entire phone for words or phrases.…
