But help is at hand, as TikTok star ‘Roxanna.Roxi’ has unveiled a nifty hack that makes it possible to scroll through a feed without using your hands.
In a short video, a robot narrator says, “Super cool TikTok trick you didn’t know existed. Did you know you can scroll on TikTok without using your hands? Just say “next.”
As part of the video demonstration, Roxanna shows users how to gain access the function of an iPhone’s voice control options.
These are visible by simply clicking on the ‘accessibility’ tab in the Settings app.

- Click on ‘Action’
- Tap on “Perform Custom Gesture”
- Draw a line up (as if you were scrolling)
- Press save
- Then go back to the previous page
- Press save again
From here, users were advised to tap the ‘set up voice control’ option where a voice command can be created and customized.
although Roxanna chose to say “next” as her command, iPhone owners can choose any phrase they want to have the feed swiped up.
Once the phrase is typed in the “Create New Command” section, “Run Custom Motion” should be clicked.
Here, users have to swipe up on their screen as if scrolling through their TikTok feed before clicking save.
This allows the iPhone to merge the voice command and scroll action that can be used in the app.
Its use isn’t limited to TikTok, though, as Apple says voice commands can be easily used to “click,” “swipe,” and “tap” on phones.
These features were originally designed to make iPhone easier for people with physical or mental disabilities to use.
Apple’s website states: “You can select, drag and zoom precisely by displaying numbers next to clickable items or by placing a grid on the screen.
Voice Control also provides a more efficient way to write and edit.
