Top 9 iPhone tips and tricks you would like to know before
An iPhone is basically just a computer that fits in your pocket – and in many ways, it’s even better than a computer.
So it’s no wonder that some features of the iPhone remain buried, and we might never find out about them without some insider’s advice. You can customize almost anything you see and hear, and just when you think you are in control of, say, the images you collect, a new trick pops up that changes your entire operating model.
The iPhone is more portable than a laptop. The camera is better than many point-and-shoot cameras. Your iPhone can even store more data than a cheap desktop PC, and the apps are comparable to any device on the market.
Whether you’re chatting with Siri or finding a new way to navigate your notifications, here are 10 things you didn’t know your iPhone could do.
How many times have you awkwardly tried to navigate through a text message or email by tapping on the screen where you want to place your cursor? It’s maddening, especially if there are tiny mistakes that you need to correct. Fortunately, the iPhone can help you crash your cursor.
1. Your keyboard can be used as a “trackpad”
All you have to do is press your text keyboard and the keys will disappear. Without the keyboard, you can slide your thumb in this space to move your text cursor. Press harder and you can select text.
If you release the pressure a little, you can deselect the text and then select it again by pressing down. It may take a while to get used to, but it is worth a little practice, as you will be able to navigate much more precisely.
2. Activate a particular setting to save battery in the blink of an eye If you’ve been out all day and forgot a charger, you may have fumes regarding the battery. Fortunately, the Low Power mode will save you some juice in an emergency.
Go to your phone’s control center and tap the “low battery” icon to turn it on or off. This should give you a little power boost, at least until you can access a charger again and everything is clear. 3. Secretly store photos you don’t want others to see
The problem with having your photo albums in iCloud is that others may look over your shoulder and spot an image that, well, needs some explanation. If you have a set of images in your Photos app that you want to hide from prying eyes, you can hide them. Head to your Photos app, choose the photos you don’t want others to see and tap the “Share” icon. It looks like a square with an arrow inside. Then choose “Hide”.
You will need to navigate to your albums in the Photos app in the future to find them, but they won’t be available to everyone now. 4. Know who is calling you before you pick up your phone.
If you want to know who is calling you without having to look at your phone, this handy tip should make it easier for you. Go to your Contacts menu, select the person for whom you want to change a ringtone or notification option, then choose “Edit.” From there, go to “Ringtone” and tap “Default”.
