iPhone XR Available

While skimming an article about the moderately priced iPhone XR, which is now available, I saw this sentence, referring to the fact that the XR is slightly larger than the XS.
While it doesn't seem to be too big for one-handed usage, time will tell if the stretch to reach Command Center at the top right corner of the device will ultimately prove too discomforting.

Curious, I wondered if the usual gesture to make it easier to get to the top of the display works with Command Center. It does.

On iPhones with no physical home button, you can swipe the black bar at the bottom of the display (the home indicator) downward. That brings the top of the display about halfway down the physical screen. Everything at the top of the display works as usual, including the gesture to call up the Command Center, swiping down from the top-right corner of the display.

More on the home indicator:
