Yes, you will not only have to learn new gestures but get used to using them on your 12. Gestures like going to the home screen, getting to the app. switcher, control panel and notifications, taking a screen shot and clearing cache to free up RAM all these gestures need to be learned and gotten used to as they all involve using the Home button

Hi,
I also just upgraded from an iPhone 8 to the iPhone 12 (6.1 inch one).
From my experience the transition was not that difficult, I got use to the new gestures quite quickly (though in my case I have had a chance to play around with a home button less iPhone before, with my mom's iPhone 11 ProMax and possibly as far back as the iPhone X, when I went to give it a try at Appel resellers).
But I would also like to know how to clear the RAM cash in the newer iPhones.

Hi Ramey, I saved an Applevis podcast on my Victor Reader Stream for my own future reference when I get my next phone without the Home Button. It's Applevis Podcast #364.

Hello Nut, Here is the name of the Applevis Podcast:
Exploring the New Gestures and Changed Button Functions on the iPhone X

Hi,
Thanks for the podcast title, I finally found it after performing a search on the main website.

I caught on to the new gestures, but I wanted something I could do more consistantly. I assigned the four finger swipe down to Home, and the four finger swipe up to task switcher. I also assigned the double back tap to Home, and triple back tap to notifications.

Between all of the options, I have enough ways to accomplish what I want depending on whether I'm going one or two handed.
