VoiceOver describes aloud what appears onscreen, so you can use iPhone without seeing it.
VoiceOver tells you about each item on the screen as you select it. The VoiceOver cursor (a black
rectangle) encloses the item and VoiceOver speaks its name or describes it.
Touch the screen or drag your finger over it to hear the items on the screen. When you select
text, VoiceOver reads the text. If you turn on Speak Hints, VoiceOver may tell you the name of the
item and provide instructions—for example, “double-tap to open.” To interact with items, such as
buttons and links, use the gestures described in Learn VoiceOver gestures on page 122.
When you go to a new screen, VoiceOver plays a sound, then selects and speaks the first item
on the screen (typically in the upper-left corner). VoiceOver also lets you know when the display
changes to landscape or portrait orientation, and when the screen becomes locked or unlocked.
Note: VoiceOver speaks in the language specified in International settings, which may be
influenced by the Region Format setting in Settings > General > International. VoiceOver is
available in many languages, but not all.

Learn VoiceOver gestures
When VoiceOver is on, standard touchscreen gestures have different effects, and additional
gestures let you move around the screen and control individual items. VoiceOver gestures
include two-, three-, and four-finger taps and swipes. For best results using multi-finger gestures,
relax and let your fingers touch the screen with some space between them.
You can use different techniques to perform VoiceOver gestures. For example, you can enter a
two-finger tap using two fingers of one hand, or one finger from each hand. You can even use
your thumbs. Many use a split-tap gesture: instead of selecting an item and double-tapping,
touch and hold an item with one finger, then tap the screen with another finger.
Try different techniques to discover what works best for you. If a gesture doesn’t work, try a
quicker movement, especially for a double-tap or swipe gesture. To swipe, try brushing the
screen quickly with your finger or fingers.
From VoiceOver settings, you can enter a special area where you can practice VoiceOver gestures
without affecting iPhone or its settings.
Practice VoiceOver gestures. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > VoiceOver, then tap
VoiceOver Practice. When you finish practicing, tap Done. If you don’t see the VoiceOver Practice
button, make sure VoiceOver is turned on.
Here’s a summary of key VoiceOver gestures:
Navigate and read
•• Tap: Select and speak the item.
Swipe right or left: Select the next or previous item.
Swipe up or down: Depends on the rotor setting. See Use the VoiceOver rotor on page 123.
Two-finger tap: Stop speaking the current item.
Two-finger swipe up: Read all from the top of the screen.
Two-finger swipe down: Read all from the current position.
Two-finger scrub: Move two fingers back and forth three times quickly (making a “z”) to
dismiss an alert or go back to the previous screen.
Three-finger swipe up or down: Scroll one page at a time.
Three-finger swipe right or left: Go to the next or previous page (such as the Home screen,
Stocks, or Safari).
Three-finger tap: Speak additional information, such as position within a list or whether text
is selected.
Four-finger tap at top of screen: Select the first item on the page.
Four-finger tap at bottom of screen: Select the last item on the page.
•• Double-tap: Activate the selected item.
Triple-tap: Double-tap an item.
Split-tap: As an alternative to selecting an item and double-tapping to activate it, touch an
item with one finger, and then tap the screen with another.
Double-tap and hold (1 second) + standard gesture: Use a standard gesture. The double-tap
and hold gesture tells iPhone to interpret the next gesture as standard. For example, you can
double-tap and hold, and then without lifting your finger, drag your finger to slide a switch.

Choose your rotor options. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > VoiceOver > Rotor and
select the options you want to be available in the rotor.
Available rotor settings and their effects depend on what you’re doing. For example, if you’re
reading an email, you can use the rotor to switch between hearing text spoken word-by-word or
character-by-character when you swipe up or down. If you’re browsing a webpage, you can set
the rotor to speak all text (word-by-word or character-by-character), or to jump to the next item
of a certain type, such as a header or link.
When you use an Apple Wireless Keyboard to control VoiceOver, the rotor lets you adjust settings
such as volume, speech rate, use of pitch or phonetics, typing echo, and reading of punctuation.

VoiceOver makes a sound when the insertion point moves, and speaks the character, word, or
line that the insertion point moves across. When moving forward by words, the insertion point
is placed at the end of each word, before the space or punctuation that follows. When moving
backward, the insertion point is placed at the end of the preceding word, before the space or
punctuation that follows it.
Move the insertion point past the punctuation at the end of a word or sentence. Use the rotor
to switch back to character mode.
When moving the insertion point by line, VoiceOver speaks each line as you move across it.
When moving forward, the insertion point is placed at the beginning of the next line (except
when you reach the last line of a paragraph, when the insertion point is moved to the end of the
line just spoken). When moving backward, the insertion point is placed at the beginning of the
line that’s spoken.

Hearing aid compatibility
The FCC has adopted hearing aid compatibility (HAC) rules for digital wireless phones. These
rules require certain phones to be tested and rated under the American National Standard
Institute (ANSI) C63.19-2007 hearing aid compatibility standards.
The ANSI standard for hearing aid compatibility contains two types of ratings:
An “M” rating for reduced radio frequency interference to enable acoustic coupling with
hearing aids that are not operating in telecoil mode
A “T” rating for inductive coupling with hearing aids operating in telecoil mode
These ratings are given on a scale from one to four, where four is the most compatible. A phone
is considered hearing aid compatible under FCC rules if it is rated M3 or M4 for acoustic coupling
and T3 or T4 for inductive coupling.
For iPhone hearing aid compatibility ratings, see
Hearing aid compatibility ratings don’t guarantee that a particular hearing aid works with a
particular phone. Some hearing aids may work well with phones that don’t meet particular
ratings. To ensure interoperability between a hearing aid and a phone, try using them together
before purchase.
This phone has been tested and rated for use with hearing aids for some of the wireless
technologies it uses. However, there may be some newer wireless technologies used in this
phone that have not been tested yet for use with hearing aids. It is important to try the different
features of this phone thoroughly and in different locations, using your hearing aid or cochlear
implant, to determine if you hear any interfering noise. Consult your service provider or Apple
for information on hearing aid compatibility. If you have questions about return or exchange
policies, consult your service provider or phone retailer.

Switch Control
Switch Control lets you control iPhone using a single switch or multiple switches. Use any of
several methods to perform actions such as selecting, tapping, dragging, typing, and even freehand drawing. The basic technique is to use a switch to select an item or location on the screen,
and then use the same (or different) switch to choose an action to perform on that item or
location. Three basic methods are:
Item scanning (default), which highlights different items on the screen until you select one.
Point scanning, which lets you use scanning crosshairs to pick a screen location.
Manual selection, which lets you move from item to item on demand (requires multiple switches).
Whichever method you use, when you select an individual item (rather than a group), a menu
appears so you can choose how to act on the selected item (tap, drag, or pinch, for example).
If you use multiple switches, you can set up each switch to perform a specific action and
customize your item selection method. For example, instead of automatically scanning screen
items, you can set up switches to move to the next or previous item on demand.
You can adjust the behavior of Switch Control in a variety of ways, to suit your specific needs
and style.
Add a switch and turn on Switch Control
You can use any of these as a switch:
An external adaptive switch. Choose from a variety of popular USB or Bluetooth switches.
The iPhone screen. Tap on the screen to trigger the switch.
The iPhone FaceTime camera. Move your head to trigger the switch. You can use the camera as
two switches; one when you move your head to the left, and the other when you move your
head to the right.
Add a switch and choose its action. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Switch Control >
Turn on Switch Control. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Switch Control.
Appendix A    Accessibility
Turn off Switch Control. Use any scanning method to select Settings > General > Accessibility >
Switch Control.
Bail out! Triple-click the Home button at any time to exit from Switch Control.
Basic techniques
These techniques work whether you’re scanning by item or by point.
Select an item. While the item is highlighted, trigger the switch you’ve set up as your Select Item
switch. If you are using a single switch, it is your Select Item switch by default.
Display available actions. Select an item using the Select Item switch. Available actions appear
in the control menu that appears.
Tap an item. Use your selection method to choose Tap from the control menu that appears
when you select the item. Or turn on Settings > General > Accessibility > Switch Control >
Auto Tap, then just select an item and do nothing for the Auto Tap interval (0.75 seconds if
you haven’t adjusted it). Or set up a switch specifically to perform the tap gesture at Settings >
General > Accessibility > Switch Control > Switches.
Perform other gestures or actions. Select the gesture or action from the control menu that
appears when you select the item. If you have Auto Tap turned on, trigger your switch within the
Auto Tap interval, then select the gesture. If there is more than one page of actions available, tap
the dots at the bottom of the menu to go to another page.
Dismiss the control menu. Tap while all the icons in the menu are dimmed.
Scroll the screen to see more items. Select any item on the screen, then choose Scroll from the
control menu.
Perform a hardware action. Select any item, then select Device from the menu that appears. You

Item scanning
Item scanning alternately highlights each item or group of items on the screen until you trigger
your Select Item switch to select the highlighted item. When you select a group, highlighting
continues with the items in the group. Scanning stops and a menu of actions appears when you
select a unique item. Item scanning is the default when you first turn on Switch Control.
Select an item or enter a group. Watch (or listen) as items are highlighted. When the item you
want to control (or the group containing the item) is highlighted, trigger your Select Item switch.
Work your way down in the hierarchy of items until you select the individual item you want
to control.
Appendix A    Accessibility
Back out of a group. Trigger your switch when the the dashed highlight around the group or
item appears.
Tap the selected item. Choose Tap from the menu that appears when you select the item. Or, if
you have Auto Tap enabled, just do nothing for three-quarters of a second.
Perform another action. Select any item, then select the action from the menu that appears. If
you have Auto Tap turned on, act on your switch within three quarters of a second of selecting
an item in order to display a menu of available gestures.

With support for secure access to corporate networks, directories, custom apps, and Microsoft
Exchange, iPhone is ready to go to work. For detailed information about using iPhone in
business, go to
Mail, Contacts, and Calendar
To use iPhone with your work accounts, you need to know the settings your organization
requires. If you received your iPhone from your organization, the settings and apps you need
might already be installed. If it’s your own iPhone, your system administrator may provide you
with the settings for you to enter, or they may have you connect to a mobile device management
server that installs the settings and apps you should have.
Organizational settings and accounts are typically in configuration profiles. You might be asked to
install a configuration profile that was sent to you in an email, or one that is downloaded from
a web page. When you open the file, iPhone asks for your permission to install the profile, and
displays information about what it contains.
In most cases, when you install a configuration profile that sets up an account for you, some
iPhone settings can’t be changed. For example, your organization might turn on Auto-Lock and
require you to set a passcode in order to protect the information in the accounts you access.
You can see your profiles in Settings > General > Profiles. If you delete a profile, all of the settings
and accounts associated with the profile are also removed, including any custom apps your
organization provided or had you download. In some cases, you need a passcode to remove
profiles. If so, contact your system administrator.
Network access
A VPN (virtual private network) provides secure access over the Internet to private resources,
such as your organization’s network. You may need to install a VPN app from the App Store that
configures your iPhone to access a particular network. Contact your system administrator for
information about apps and settings you need.
In addition to the built-in apps and the ones you get from the App Store, your organization may
want you to have certain other apps. They might provide you with a pre-paid redemption code for
the App Store. When you download an app using a redemption code, you own it, even though
your organization purchased it for you.
iPhone in Business
Your organization can also purchase App Store app licenses that they assign to you for a period
of time, but that they retain. You’ll be invited to participate in your organization’s program in
order to access these apps. After you’re enrolled with your iTunes account, you’re prompted to
install these apps as they’re assigned to you. You can also find them in your Purchased list in the
App Store. An app you receive this way is removed if the organization assigns it to someone else.
Your organization might also have custom apps that they’ve developed. These apps aren’t
in the App Store. You’ll install them from a webpage or, if your organization uses mobile
device management, you’ll receive a notification asking you to install them over the air. These
apps belong to your organization, and they may be removed or stop working if you delete a
configuration profile or dissociate iPhone from the mobile device management server.

Important handling information
Cleaning Clean iPhone immediately if it comes in contact with anything that may cause stains—
such as dirt, ink, makeup, or lotions. To clean:
Disconnect all cables and turn iPhone off (press and hold the Sleep/Wake button, then slide
the onscreen slider).
Use a soft, lint-free cloth.
Avoid getting moisture in openings.
Don’t use cleaning products or compressed air.
The front or back cover of iPhone may be made of glass with a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic
(oil repellant) coating. This coating wears over time with normal usage. Cleaning products and
abrasive materials will further diminish the coating, and may scratch the glass.
Using connectors, ports, and buttons Never force a connector into a port or apply excessive
pressure to a button, because this may cause damage that is not covered under the warranty. If
the connector and port don’t join with reasonable ease, they probably don’t match. Check for
obstructions and make sure that the connector matches the port and that you have positioned
the connector correctly in relation to the port.
Lightning Discoloration of the Lightning plug after regular use is normal. Dirt, debris, and
exposure to liquids may cause discoloration. To remove the discoloration or if the cable becomes
warm during use or won’t charge or sync your iPhone, disconnect the Lightning cable from your
computer or power adapter and clean it with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. Do not use liquids or
cleaning products when cleaning the Lightning connector.
Operating temperature iPhone is designed to work in ambient temperatures between 32° and
95° F (0° and 35° C) and stored in temperatures between -4° and 113° F (-20° and 45° C). iPhone
can be damaged and battery life shortened if stored or operated outside of these temperature
ranges. Avoid exposing iPhone to dramatic changes in temperature or humidity. When you’re
using iPhone or charging the battery, it is normal for iPhone to get warm.
Appendix D    Safety, Handling, & Support
If the interior temperature of iPhone exceeds normal operating temperatures (for example, in a
hot car or in direct sunlight for extended periods of time), you may experience the following as it
attempts to regulate its temperature:
iPhone stops charging.
The screen dims.
A temperature warning screen appears.
Some apps may close.
Important: You may not be able to use iPhone while the temperature warning screen is
displayed. If iPhone can’t regulate its internal temperature, it goes into deep sleep mode until
it cools. Move iPhone to a cooler location out of direct sunlight and wait a few minutes before
trying to use iPhone again.

Disabled iPhone
If iPhone is disabled because you forgot your passcode or entered an incorrect passcode too
many times, you can restore iPhone from an iTunes or iCloud backup and reset the passcode. For
more information, see Restore iPhone on page 149.
If you get a message in iTunes that your iPhone is locked and you must enter a passcode, see
Back up iPhone
You can use iCloud or iTunes to automatically back up iPhone (in iTunes, use File > Device > Back
Up). If you choose to back up using iCloud, you can’t also use iTunes to automatically back up to
your computer, but you can use iTunes to manually back up to your computer. iCloud backs up
to iPhone daily over Wi-Fi, when it’s connected to a power source and is locked. The date and
time of the last backup is listed at the bottom of the Storage & Backup screen.
iCloud backs up your:
Purchased music, movies, TV shows, apps, and books
Photos and videos in your Camera Roll
iPhone settings
App data
Home screen, folders, and app layout
Messages (iMessage, SMS, and MMS)
Note: Purchased content is not backed up in all areas.
Turn on iCloud backups. Go to Settings > iCloud, then log in with your Apple ID and password, if
required. Go to Storage & Backup, then turn on iCloud Backup. To turn on backups in iTunes, go
to File > Device > Back Up.
Back up immediately. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup, then tap Back Up Now.
Encrypt your backup. iCloud backups are encrypted automatically so that your data is protected
from unauthorized access both while it’s transmitted to your devices and when it’s stored in
iCloud. If you’re using iTunes for your backup, select “Encrypt iPhone backup” in the iTunes
Summary pane.
Manage your backups. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup, then tap Manage Storage.
Tap the name of your iPhone. You can manage which apps are backed up to iCloud, and remove
existing backups. In iTunes, remove backups in iTunes Preferences.
Turn Camera Roll backup on or off. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup, then tap
Manage Storage. Tap the name of your iPhone, then turn Camera Roll backup on or off.
View the devices being backed up. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup >
Manage Storage.
Stop iCloud backups. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup, then turn off iCloud Backup.
Music not purchased in iTunes isn’t backed up in iCloud. Use iTunes to back up and restore that
content. See Sync with iTunes on page 18.
Appendix D    Safety, Handling, & Support
Important: Backups for music, movies, or TV show purchases are not available in all countries.
Previous purchases may not be restored if they are no longer in the iTunes Store, App Store, or
iBooks Store.

Cellular settings
Use Cellular settings to turn cellular data and roaming on or off, set which apps and services use
cellular data, see call time and cellular data usage, and set other cellular options.
If iPhone is connected to the Internet via the cellular data network, the
icon appears in the status bar.
, , or
LTE, 4G, and 3G service on GSM cellular networks support simultaneous voice and data
communications. For all other cellular connections, you can’t use Internet services while you’re
talking on the phone unless iPhone also has a Wi-Fi connection to the Internet. Depending on
your network connection, you may not be able to receive calls while iPhone transfers data over
the cellular network—when downloading a webpage, for example.
Appendix D    Safety, Handling, & Support
GSM networks: On an EDGE or GPRS connection, incoming calls may go directly to voicemail
during data transfers. For incoming calls that you answer, data transfers are paused.
CDMA networks: On EV-DO connections, data transfers are paused when you answer incoming
calls. On 1xRTT connections, incoming calls may go directly to voicemail during data transfers.
For incoming calls that you answer, data transfers are paused.
Data transfer resumes when you end the call.
If Cellular Data is off, all data services use only Wi-Fi—including email, web browsing, push
notifications, and other services. If Cellular Data is on, carrier charges may apply. For example,
using certain features and services that transfer data, such as Siri and Messages, could result in
charges to your data plan.
Turn Cellular Data on or off. Go to Settings > Cellular. The following options may also be available:
Turn Voice Roaming on or off (CDMA): Turn Voice Roaming off to avoid charges from using other
carrier’s networks. When your carrier’s network isn’t available, iPhone won’t have cellular (data
or voice) service.
Turn Data Roaming on or off: Data Roaming permits Internet access over a cellular data
network when you’re in an area not covered by your carrier’s network. When you’re traveling,
you can turn off Data Roaming to avoid roaming charges. See Phone settings on page 48.
Enable or disable 3G: Using 3G loads Internet data faster in some cases, but may decrease
battery performance. If you’re making a lot of phone calls, you may want to turn 3G off to
extend battery life. This option is not available in all areas.
Set whether cellular data is used for apps and services. Go to Settings > Cellular, then turn
cellular data on or off for any app that can use cellular data. If a setting is off, iPhone uses only
Wi-Fi for that service. The iTunes setting includes both iTunes Match and automatic downloads
from the iTunes Store and the App Store.
Sell or give away iPhone?
Before you sell or give away your iPhone, be sure to erase all content and your personal
information. If you’ve enabled Find My iPhone (see Find My iPhone on page 38), Activation Lock
is on. You need to turn off Activation Lock before the new owner can activate iPhone under his
or her own account.
Erase iPhone and remove Activation Lock. Go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content
and Settings.
