It doesn’t matter how long you’ve used iPhones – a few months or a few years, there are some hidden secrets the phone has been hiding. And, these little hidden tricks can change how you use the phone. So, with that in mind, what exactly can iPhones do?
7 Unpublicized but Neat Tricks Your iPhone Can Do
1 – Shake The Phone To Undo Mistakes
It can be difficult to type on a small screen and, because of that, mistakes in writing can happen. Thanks to Apple, this is an extremely useful feature. All you have to do is shake the phone and several options including whether you want to cancel and continue or if you want to undo your typing. Rather convenient isn’t it?
2 – Use Your Head To Control The Phone
Yes, you did read that right. You can use your head to control your phone. It’s known as Switch Control, which can be accessed going through your Settings and into the Accessibility menu. It was designed to help people who have certain kinds of disabilities. When you tilt your head, yu can check things out on your phone.
3 – Location-Based Notices
Reminders (notices) are a great way to help people remember things. This is especially helpful to people who hate coming up with a mental list. Your iPhone can let you know what you need at a certain location. All you need to do is set a reminder up, tap the information icon and start the location feature. The phone will use the installed GPS to give you a reminder when it detects you are in that location. Look at this feature as an electronic personal assistant.
4 – Burst Pictures
How many times have you taken a picture and it look blurry? The iPhone’s burst feature will allow to you to take many different pictures at one time. When you’re done, you can go through the gallery and find that perfect photo. All you have to do is hold the picture button done to activate burst.
5 – Block Callers
One of the worst calls you can get are telemarketers. However, iPhone users may not realize how easy it is to block these types of calls. Just go into your phone’s Settings app and add the numbers you’d like to block. There you have it… no more annoying calls at the least opportune times.
6 – Use Volume Control To Take Photos
When it comes to taking pictures, it can be difficult to do with a touchscreen button. Therefore, you can use the phone’s volume controls to take them. If a headphone is being used, don’t fret. The headphone’s volume control buttons can also take photos.
7 – Airplane Mode
Do you need your phone to charge quickly? Put the phone on its airplane mode while it charges, and it goes twice as fast. The reason is that the phone isn’t wasting its battery trying to get a Wi-Fi or other type of connection.
