How To Get Rid Of Blue Box Jumping Around The Screen In iOS 16

Some users have been complaining about blue box jumping around their iPhone’s screen and just won’t go away. Most of the users don’t know the reason why there’s a box that jumps from one option to another let alone know how to disable it. 

Estimate Cost : 0

Time Needed : 3 minutes

If you’re thinking that there’s a serious problem with your device, the answer is no. That blue box is one of the features of your iPhone that you can switch on and off whenever you want. 

That’s what we’re going to show you in this post, and here’s how it’s done: 

  1. Go back to the Home Screen and tap Settings.

    Doing so will open the Settings app which allows you to change some features in your iPhone. 

  2. Scroll down a bit and tap Accessibility.

    This will bring you to the screen with a lot of accessibility settings you can change to make your device work the way you want. 

  3. Find and tap Switch Control.

    This setting is the culprit. It’s the reason why there’s a blue box jumping around the screen of your iPhone. 

  4. Tap the switch next to Switch Control to disable it.

    Immediately after that, the blue box will not appear until you enable the Switch Control again. 

  • iPhone 14 Pro
  • iOS 16, Switch Control

This feature allows you to use your iPhone sequentially highlighting items on the screen that can be activated through an adaptive accessory and that’s the reason why the blue box won’t stay in one place.

Switch Control is disabled by default. Aside from manually disabling the switch, you can also reset the settings of your iPhone to bring all settings back to their default values. That will also get rid of the blue box jumping around. 

We hope this guide can help you.
