VoiceOver Move to related content

iOS and iPadOS

Hello all,

A couple of days ago, I found a new VoiceOver shortcut on iOS called: "move to related content". This command can be executed by performing two fingers flick right or by pressing VO + j on a Bluetooth keyboard. I've tried this out on a couple of different screens: Home screen, Safari, Mail, Etc., however it doesn't seem to work.

Does any body know the use of this new VoiceOver action and how it should be used?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Alexandre Bellemare

I found that just today while browsing the new XR gestures.

In my experience, the best use I found for it was in the Mail app on an iPad, to jump to the contents of a message. For example, I could be browsing my inbox on the left side of the screen, and rather than exploring the right or browsing by containers, I could do a two-finger flick right to jump to the open message. There may be other uses, but that is the one I know of off the top of my head.

I also believe this is meant to be used on iPads, in apps with two-column layouts such as Mail or Settings.
