Disable Double-Click to install iPhone 11


So if you have ever tried to install a App on the iPhone 11 or any other iPhone such as the iPhone X or iPhone XS. You will realize they all bring up a splash screen each time that asks that you to Double-Click to install by clicking the side button.

Now confirming with the side button is meant as a security feature to prevent unauthorized purchased but it can be disabled for free Apps or in general if you want.

Why Disable this Feature?

You may in some cases need to disable this feature as you are really annoyed with the feature. Don’t need it as you only download free Apps and don’t have a associated credit card so no need for it.

Otherwise you may simply want it off as you already have the main lock and don’t need the extra layer of security. Whatever the reason I will show you how to disable the feature.
