When the phone is unlocked, one needs to swipe it up to open the home screen from the bottom. The gestures are pretty simple, convenient to use.

If the user wants to do multitasking on the phone it is again very easy. Just Swipe up from the bottom and pause for a moment and there you are, well-prepared for the multitasking aspect, wherein, the menu cards appear in front of you to be used.
The menu to appear will take a second. The pause timing will be ensured as and when you start using the gestures. The right amount of pause will be estimated by the user then. You can also swipe left or right on the bottom part of the screen in order to switch in between the recently used apps. Again the quick gesture does not show cards, but switches right between full-screen apps and saves time.

Left Ear Swipe
There is big cut out at the top of the iPhone X screen and on its left and right are tiny areas and are called as “ear” (informally). The left ear, when swiped down, leads to the cover sheet, which is popularly known as the ‘Notification Center’. Cover Sheet is the new name for Apple’s Notification Center. The ‘ears’ show information about the signal strength and battery levels.
