Absolutely. It's not like Apple provides a user's guide so these gestures do very much seem secret. Remember, David Pogue is writing for a very broad audience, not the MacRumors segment. I have family members who frustrate me to no end with their basic iOS questions, but they don't spend nearly as much time as I do tinkering with their phones.Its more the headline of the article that is ridiculous. If it was simply billed as a list of all the things the home button does, it wouldn't be as idiotic. I'm sure there are lots of people out there who have no idea about a couple of those - namely the triple click.
But "secret" would make more of them more likely to be interested in actually clicking on the article and reading it. And to that group of users things that aren't immediately obvious or have to be found in some manual can be considered as "secret" in some sense.This doesn't make them secret features
"Should" being the keyword there.Aren't these the basics that everyone should already know about the Home button?
Doesn't seem like it is in the title (or even the article).Anything can happen if the word secret is involved.
Exactly. Nothing earth-shattering here. Even my dad, who's 60 and technically inept, knows all these features and no, I didn't teach him.Aren't these the basics that everyone should already know about the Home button?
