There has been a lot of change since Apple introduced its iPhone X in 2017.

We could be able to blame Apple for this, as the instructions on screen aren’t precise. The message displayed could read “Double-Click the Side button to Install”. Thankfully , in iOS 13, Apple has added an “Confirm with Side Button” message to on the right side of the display, to simplify things.
