How to add switch control recipes on an iphone

Пользователи с нарушениями двигательных функций могут управлять iPhone с помощью Виртуального контроллера, используя один или несколько переключателей. С помощью переключателей можно выбирать и перетягивать объекты, касаться их, вводить текст и даже рисовать от руки. Сначала нужно выбрать объект или место на экране, используя один переключатель, а затем выбрать действие, используя этот же (или другой) переключатель.

Вы можете использовать экран iPhone, камеру, микрофон или заднюю панель iPhone либо добавить внешний адаптивный переключатель.

Прежде чем добавлять внешний переключатель, подключите его к iPhone, следуя инструкциям, приведенным в документации к переключателю. Если переключатель подключается по Bluetooth, объедините его в пару с iPhone. Для этого включите переключатель, откройте «Настройки» > «Bluetooth», включите Bluetooth, коснитесь имени переключателя, затем следуйте инструкциям на экране.

If you have physical difficulties, you can use Switch Control to operate iPhone using one or more switches. With switches, you can select, tap, drag, type, and even draw freehand. You use a switch to select an item or location on the screen, then use the same (or a different) switch to choose an action.

Add a switch

You can use any of the following sources as a switch:

An external adaptive switch: Choose a Bluetooth switch or Made For iPhone (MFi) switch that plugs into the Lightning connector on iPhone.

The iPhone screen: Tap the screen to trigger the switch.

The iPhone front camera: Move your head left or right while facing the camera to trigger the switch.

Before you add an external switch, connect it to iPhone, following the instructions that came with the switch. If the switch connects using Bluetooth, pair it with iPhone—turn on the switch, go to Settings > Bluetooth, turn on Bluetooth, tap the name of the switch, then follow the onscreen instructions.

Go to Settings > Accessibility > Switch Control > Switches.

Tap Add New Switch, then choose a source.

Assign an action to the switch.

To ensure Switch Control functions correctly, you must assign a switch to the Select Item action and another switch to the Move to Next Item action.

Choose a scanning style and customize Switch Control

You can adjust the behavior of Switch Control in a variety of ways, to suit your specific needs and style.

Go to Settings > Accessibility > Switch Control.

Tap Scanning Style, then choose one of the following:

Auto Scanning: The focus automatically moves to the next item after a specified duration.

Manual Scanning: You trigger a switch to move the focus to the next item (requires multiple switches).

Single Switch Step Scanning: You trigger a switch to move the focus to the next item; if no action is taken with a specified duration, the item with the focus is automatically activated.

Customize Switch Control by setting options such as the following:

Switches: Add switches and specify their function.

Recipes: Create, edit, and choose recipes to temporarily assign special actions to switches.

Auto Scanning Time: Adjust the item scanning speed.

Pause on First Item: Set scanning to pause on the first item in a group.

Loops: Choose how many times to cycle through the screen before hiding Switch Control.

Move Repeat: Set the delay before moving to the previous or next item while a switch is pressed.

Long Press: Set whether a different action occurs when you press and hold a switch, and how long to wait before performing that action.

Tap Behavior: Choose a tap behavior and set the interval for performing a second switch action to show the Scanner Menu.

Focused Item After Tap: Choose whether Switch Control resumes scanning at an item you tap or from the beginning.

Hold Duration: Set whether and how long you need to hold a switch down before it’s accepted as a switch action.

Ignore Repeat: Ignore accidental repeated switch triggers.

Gliding Cursor: Adjust the point scanning style and speed.

Head Tracking: Adjust settings for head tracking (on an iPhone with Face ID) and assign actions to facial expressions.

Sound Effects: Turn on sound effects.

Speech: Speak items as they’re scanned.

Menu Items: Choose the actions shown in the Scanner Menu and the order in which they appear.

Group Items: Group items for faster navigation.

Large Cursor: Make the selection cursor larger.

Cursor Color: Choose a different color.

Saved Gestures: Create and save custom gestures to the Scanner Menu.

Confirm with Switch Control: On an iPhone with Face ID, confirm payments with Face ID by using Switch Control instead of double-clicking the side button.

Turn Switch Control on or off

Important: Switch Control changes the gestures you use to control iPhone.

To turn Switch Control on or off, use any of the following methods:

Go to Settings > Accessibility > Switch Control.

If you’ve got smart home stuff hooked up to HomeKit, like smart lights, plugs, or locks, you know how convenient it is to control from your iPhone or iPad. But it’s also a little annoying to have to leave whatever app you’re in, then find and launch the Home app, just to check the status of something or turn off a light.

In iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, Apple has made this a lot easier. You can add HomeKit to Control Center to see a selection of your favorites right there, one swipe away, without having to leave the app you’re in. Here’s how it works.

Adding Home items to Control Center

To add HomeKit items in Control Center, you’ll need to flip a toggle in Settings.

Open the Settings app.

Tap Control Center.

Toggle the switch that says Show Home Controls.

Flip this toggle to see Home items in Control Center.

Using Home items in Control Center

To access Control Center on an iPhone that has Face ID or an iPad, swipe down from the upper right edge. To access control center on an iPhone that has a Touch ID, swipe up from the bottom edge.

Once enabled in Settings, two rows of your Control Center will be Home items.

You’ll find a couple rows of frequently used Home items there along with a button labeled Home Favorites. You can see the status of those devices, or tap that Favorites button to look at all the devices you have set as Favorites in the Home app. See their status, toggle them, or long-press on controls to see more options.

Changing Home Favorites

Accessing your HomeKit devices from Control Center requires them to be in your list of Favorites. If the device you want isn’t there (or if your Favorites list is has stuff you don’t want in it), you’ll have to go into the Home app to fix it.

Open the Home app.

Tap Rooms at the bottom of the screen.

Swipe left or right between rooms until you find the device you want to change.

Long-press on the device to bring up its detailed controls.

Tap the gear icon in the lower right to access that device’s settings.

Look for the Include in Favorites toggle.

To access a HomeKit device in Control Center, you must add it to your Favorites.

You’ll have to add devices to your Favorites in order to access them from Control Center, and you can trim your Favorites list to remove items you don’t want cluttering it up.

How to Download Auto Clicker for iPhone, iPad, and Mac?

Download Auto Clicker For iPhone:

The App Store doesn’t have so many options for auto clickers. At least they got Clicker+ Counter application for auto clicking on the iPhone. This app has many features and works perfectly as an automated clicker. You can easily download it from the App Store.

This app doesn’t override the device’s sound and vibration hardware switches. The app is compatible with iOS 11.1 or later. If you buy a premium Family Sharing set up, six members can use this app.

How to use Clicker+ Counter?

You can set the number of clicks to perform on a game or app. You can set manually or you can use + and – buttons to increase or decrease the number of clicks. Click on the reset button to start a new manual setup.

How to add switch control recipes on an iphone

Automated click value of Clicker+ starts from 0 and maximum value is 99,999. You can set your target clicks manually and save them to use it later.

In-built Method For Setting up Auto Clicks

There is also an in-built option available for Auto Clicker (Something very similar). It would help if you had some guidance to unlock the feature. Follow these steps carefully to unlock it on your iPhone and iPad:

  • Go to your Settings and open Accessibility.
  • Scroll down, open Accessibility Shortcut, and choose Switch Control
  • Go back and open the Switch Control setting and go through the sequence: Switches>Add New Switch>Screen>Full Screen>Select Item.
  • Go back to Switch Control again and click Recipes>Create New Recipe.
  • Now name the recipe Autoclicker and follow the sequence by clicking Assign a Switch>Full Screen>Custom Gesture.
  • Now make a custom gesture by tapping multiple times on the screen and click on the Save.
  • Press back and go to Recipes again. Click on the Launch Recipe section and choose Autoclicker.

Now your custom-made auto clicker is ready to use. You can launch and stop the auto clicker by pressing the Home button 3 times. This trick doesn’t work on iPhone iPhone X, iPhone 11 and iPhone 12.

Download Auto Clicker For iPad

Downloading Auto Clicker on iPad is pretty much the same as iPhone. You can download Clicker+ Counter from the App Store and use it efficiently. You can use it similarly as iPhone.

There are upgrade charges also included for this app which is $9.99 for a week and $29.99 for a year.

How to add switch control recipes on an iphone

If you don’t want to spend money on an application, you can try the in-built auto clicker method that I have mentioned above. It also works perfectly as an automated clicker.

You can also download restricted auto-clicker applications on iPad and iPhone using JailBreak. But there are plenty of disadvantages of JailBreaking, so I suggest you try the legal way.

Download Auto Clicker For macOS

Apart from iPhone and iPad, it’s easier to download auto-clickers on Mac. There are plenty of options available for Mac. Here is a list of some of the best auto clickers for Mac.

You can download Auto Clickers by simply clicking these websites on Mac, or you can find them on Chrome.

Installation Process

We took the example of MurGaa Auto Clicker. Follow these instructions to install the auto clicker on MacOS:

  • Download the software and save the setup file to Downloads
  • Open the Downloads folder and find the setup file.
  • Click Right on the auto clicker setup and click on open from the Menu.
  • Continue the installation afterward.
  • Now MurGaa Auto Clicker is ready to Automate the task of clicking.

Conclusion

So this is our solution to get an auto clicker for iOS and Mac users. Although it is a bit tricky for iPhone and iPad users, as there are not so many dedicated apps available for that. You can try the JailBreaking method to download auto clickers from third-party sources, but it won’t be legit, and there are several risks too. On the other hand, the auto clicker we have listed above is fully functional in macOS. You can use it on repetitive tasks or clicker games.

There is no denying it; technology is now a part of our daily life. We wake up to the sound of our smartphone’s alarm. We check the news through the various news and media apps. We get updates from our families, friends, and even celebrities through the different social media platforms. We communicate with our co-workers, bosses, and customers through emails, phone calls, SMS, and real-time video chats. Technology is so much ingrained into our day-to-day activities that we feel that it is a part of us. Just imagine living a day without your smartphone with you. In as much as we are deeply reliant on technology, everything in excess is not okay especially when it comes to our children. This article will discuss how to set a time limit on iPhone usage to effectively manage your children’s exposure to handheld devices.

Recommended Children Exposure Times to Handheld Devices

There is no total ban but being exposed to cell phones and handheld devices. However, use of mobile phones and other handheld devices should be properly managed by the children’s guardians. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Society of Pediatrics expects pediatricians to recommend the following to parents:

● Infants and Toddlers aging 0-2 years old – zero exposure
● Children 3-5 years old – one hour of exposure per day
● Children 6-18 years old – two hours of exposure per day

How to Set a Time Limit on iPhone Usage

iPhone has a lesser-known feature that allows owners to set a time limit on iPhone usage. The feature can help parents manage their children’s use of iPhone. To set a time limit on iPhone usage, do these:

1. Enable Guided Access on your iPhone by going to Home > Settings > General > Accessibility > Guided Access. You can check our separate detailed article on how to enable Guided Access on iPhone.How to add switch control recipes on an iphone

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I end the Guided Access even if time is not yet up?

A: Yes, as long as you have the passcode for the Guided Access, you can end the use of the feature anytime.

Q: I want my child to switch between two learning apps while the timer is still on. How can I do just that?

A: You can’t. Guided Access only works for a single app.

Q: Can I extend the time limit for iPhone usage?

A: Yes. Simply follow the step-by-step instructions in the previous section to reset the time limit of guided access.

Q: I want to put a time limit on a specific period which repeats daily until I stop them. Is this possible?
A: Unfortunately, Guided Access cannot do scheduled and repeated time limits. Hoever, if you are using an iOS 12, then you may be in luck. You can schedule repeated time limits on your iPhone usage by learning how to use Downtime on your iPhone. With Downtime, you no longer have to manually trigger the Guided Access feature.

You just learned how to set a time limit on your iPhone using the Guided Access feature. If you have questions with any of the steps discussed in this article, let us know in the comments section.

If you are an iOS 12 user, Apple has a better feature for you – it’s called Screen Time. With Screen Time, you can now monitor your phone and app usage and the same time set downtimes on certain apps and periods. Screen Time gives you better control over your phone and your children’s phones. You can check our detailed article on Screen Time to learn more about the feature.

In a recent entry, we reviewed the native iPhone app of the extremely popular service, IFTTT (IF This Then That), which uses “recipes” (or collections of commands between applications and other services) to trigger specific actions.

This time, we’ll take a closer look at some recipes available for the IFTTT iPhone app that can prove to be very convenient, especially if you are already familiar with IFTTT and what the services does.

Important Note: It seems that the IFTTT iPhone app needs to be open in order to function properly since Apple’s APIs won’t let some apps sync in the background. This should be solved with the release of iOS 7, but in the meantime the app’s functionality can be somewhat hindered by it.

1. Keep a Constantly-Updated Backup of Your Contacts

When it comes to important, personal information, there can never be enough backups. This is exactly what this recipe does with your contacts: It creates a Google spreadsheet and updates it every time you add a create a new contact on your iPhone. (Recipe ID 106535)

You can turn Voice Control on or off verbally, but you can also do so in your settings. Just go to Settings > Accessibility > Voice Control, and toggle the switch. You can also say “Disable Voice Control” to turn the feature off.

Want to add more functions? Check out the next section to learn how to add your own custom commands to Voice Control.

How to customize Voice Control

Making it an even better accessibility feature, and one that’s fun to play around with, you can add custom commands to Voice Control. Say one phrase for several actions, or to quickly add or delete text. Follow the steps below to add a custom command:

  1. Go to Settings, then Accessibility, and tap Voice Control.
  2. Tap “Customize Commands” and “Create New Command…”
  3. Type in the phrase you’ll say to make the action happen. For a quick email insertion, type “Insert my email address” or a similar phrase.
  4. Tap “Action.” You’ll now have four options of what the action can be: “Insert Text,” “Run Custom Gesture,” “Run Shortcut” and “Playback Recorded Commands.” We’ll break these down in a moment.
  5. For the sake of the example, choose “Insert Text” and type your email address into the box.
  6. Once your action is set up, tap “New Command,” then “Application.” Here you’ll decide if you want your command available in one particular app, or in all apps on your iPhone.
  7. Tap “Back,” then “Save” in the top right corner to finish making your custom command.

How to add switch control recipes on an iphone

To see or edit custom commands, simply go to Settings > Accessibility > Voice Control > Customize Commands > Custom. Just tap the one you want to delete or edit, then tap the “Edit” button on the top right of the screen.

Now, back to the four options you can choose from when customizing and creating new commands:

  1. With “Insert Text,” you’ll type in what you want to have typed out for you when you say your custom phrase.
  2. “Run Custom Gesture” means you can record gestures habitually performed in apps. This is useful for games or apps that require unique motions. A great example is the “touch-and-hold” gesture, which allows your phone to hold down a spot on your phone for you, such as a button when you issue your custom command.
  3. With “Run Shortcut,” you get a list of Siri shortcuts that can be activated by Voice Control, in case you want her involved in the action, like with texting a particular contact.
  4. With “Playback Recorded Commands,” you can record a series of commands, like opening one app, copying text and pasting it in another, so that all happens with one phrase.

You can add vocabulary to Voice Control as well, to allow it to type things that are a little tricky to spell. Add and later delete vocabulary by doing the following:

  1. Go to Settings > Accessibility > Voice Control.
  2. Tap “Vocabulary.”
  3. Tap the blue plus sign (“+”) in the upper right corner, and type in the word or phrase you want Voice Control to know.
  4. Tap “Save.”

Voice Control is a feature that can help people with motor issues, or just help you avoid Siri, who has a surprising potty mouth! Tap or click here to see what we mean.

If you’re an iPhone or iPad user, you’re probably aware of the sharing menu in iOS. It gives you access to a lot more options than just being able to send information to different apps or share files with other users. Did you know that you could customize this sharing menu according to your preference?

Apple calls this menu “Share Sheet”, and it has been around for a few years. However, with the introduction of ipadOS and iOS 13, Share Sheet has received some major visual changes and other improvements. There’s a lot more flexibility when it comes to customization, so that users can have more control over what’s displayed in this menu.

Interested in learning how this works, so you can customize the share sheet on your iOS device? Look no further, because in this article, we’ll be discussing exactly how you can add to & edit sharing menu options on both the iPhone & iPad, as long as they’re running iOS 13 or later.

How to Add & Edit Sharing Menu Options on iPhone and iPad

The Share Sheet in iOS 13 does not remain constant across apps. Certain options that you see in the sharing menu are strictly specific to the app you’re using. However, the procedure to add and edit options in the share sheet remains the same. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the necessary steps.

    You could access the Share Sheet from any app that you’re familiar with. However, for the sake of this article, we’ll be using Safari. Simply tap on the “Share” icon to bring up the Share Sheet from the bottom of your screen.

Here, scroll all the way to the bottom of the Share Sheet and tap “Edit Actions…”

That’s pretty much all you need to do, in order to make changes to the sharing menu on your iPhone and iPad.

Since the content that’s displayed on the Share Sheet is app-specific, you might necessarily see some of your favorite actions as you switch between different apps. Let’s say you added a “Bookmark” action to Favorites in Safari, you won’t find it when you access the Share Sheet in the Music app, because that particular action isn’t supported by the app.

Therefore, you might want to edit your Favorite actions in order to better suit the app you’re using. As a result, it will take some time before you neatly customize the Share Sheet according to your preference across various applications.

This iOS feature comes in handy in so many situations, and you can save plenty of time by performing certain actions within the Share Sheet. For example, you could use the Skitch action in the sharing menu to annotate screenshots right in the stock Photos app, without even having to open the Skitch app itself.
