3. Interacting With the iPhone

What are we going to learn?

  1. How to interact with the iPhone
  2. Learn the difference between buttons and gestures
  3. What each physical button on the iPhone does

In conclusion

Most of the interactions are with the touch screen which uses two types of interactions 

  1. Virtual buttons – tapping/pressing something
  2. Gestures – for instance  swiping (to move on to the next picture) or pinching (zoom in/out)

In addition to the touch screen, the iPhone also has external buttons that control certain functions, such as the volume buttons, screen on/off button, and silent mode switch.

For the next lesson:
