Apple's iPhone X is a massive departure from all the iPhones ever launched. The bezel-less design ditched the signature home button that all the iPhones had over the years, confusing users who were trying to get the basic functions correct.

The iPhone X is clearly the best iPhone ever launched, and you'd agree if you already own one. But it suffices to say that the Apple flagship comes with its fair share of mysteries, even if you've always been an iPhone user.

The lack of a physical home button required Apple to bring several workarounds just to move about from one function to another. Be it a simple task of taking a screenshot, going to the home screen or turning off the iPhone X, new gestures have been incorporated exclusively for owners of the most expensive iPhone ever.
