The capabilities of the iPhone are its main shtick. Unlike other devices, all the functions of Apple smartphones are thoroughly worked out, and therefore, they work smoothly and reliably. The new device has all the most necessary options that allow you to use the Internet comfortably, make calls, take and watch videos. However, iOS phones have quite a few unobvious features, and not all users know how to find hidden apps on iPhone. Here are some iPhone settings secrets, which will allow you to use your smartphone more effectively.
IPhone tricks Apple won’t tell you
- Close Three Programs at Once
Do you need to close multiple applications? In order not to stack up each program separately, you can use three fingers and close three tasks at a time. This is so easy and fun, try it.
- Turn off the Flashlight Quickly
All iPhone users are aware of the fact that the Control Point has quick access to the flashlight function. However, not many people know that you can turn it off not only in the usual way but also by running the camera when the screen is locked.
- Level Instrument
With the help of a gyro, the iPhone is able to determine whether the surface, on which it lies, is perfectly horizontal or vertical. To use this function, start the standard Compass application and drag your finger to open the next screen in the camera with the screen locked.
- Search in Messages
In order to find a message, you can use a special search. The text entry field appears if you drag down the list of your letters. To see the exact time when you receive or send an SMS, drag the screen to the left with them – a line with time will appear on the right, the blue background is for iMessage messages, and the green one is for simple SMS.
- Underlined and Bold Text
In some applications, the text-formatting bar is visible right away, but otherwise, users often do not know how to open it. After selecting the text for editing and opening the copy (paste) window, you will also find BIU settings that allow you to edit the formatting.
- Go Back Quickly
The iPhone does not have a separate "Back" button. However, in applications such as "Settings," "Mail," "Messages," you can quickly turn back by swiping to the right.
- Lock the Focus and Exposure
When the camera is on, pressing the screen sets the focus and exposure, but after the iPhone moves, these settings reset. To lock them at a particular point, tap and hold your finger on the screen until the notification of the exposure and focus lock appears.
- Creation of Different Vibrational Alerts
Do you want to know about someone's call, even without looking at the screen of your phone? In the contact settings, there is an option to select and create vibration for notification. In order to create a vibration type, in your contacts select the right person and, editing the data, create a new vibration signal. It will be made by pressing your fingers and can become an original way to highlight any of the numbers.
- Saving Mobile Internet Traffic
If you follow the use of cellular data and want to reduce the consumption of traffic, iOS has the ability to disable mobile data for individual applications. Find the "Cellular communication" item in the settings, and at the bottom, you will see the switches for each application.
- Extended Battery Life
Spotlight, of course, is a very useful function that allows you to get the information you need quickly. Nevertheless, in cases when the battery charge is more valuable, you can disable tracking of some data, because constant indexing of many indicators strongly discharges the battery. The Spotlight menu can be found in the general settings of the iPhone.
- More Emoticons on the Keyboard
Apple added the ability to change the color of emoticons and emotions in iOS. When you see the keyboard, do not forget that some of the letters or symbols can have different variations. In order to see the enhanced options, you need to select the desired emotion on the keyboard and hold the finger on it for a few seconds.
- Improving the Work of Touch ID
One trick will make the iPhone fingerprint scanner work better. In the Touch ID menu, create several "new prints," each time applying the same finger to the sensor; two or three times will be enough.
- Continuous shooting
Thanks to the powerful iPhone processor, the camera allows you to shoot a series of photos. Then, from a large number of frames, you can choose the most successful one. The mode is great for pictures of sports events, children and special moments.
- Faster Charging of iPhone
Sometimes in a hurry, you want to charge your smartphone faster. In this case, after connecting the charging cord, you must turn on "Fly mode."
- Protection of Privacy
This trick will not only provide greater privacy but will also extend the battery life a little. The fact is that the iPhone sends data about its whereabouts to Apple. In order to disable this option, find the "System Services" item in the privacy settings and disable shadowing.
- Saving Images Separately From Attachments
If you have a group chat, in which someone sends an attached file every second, or just want to separate the GIF files from the archives, go to the "Information" section in the necessary dialog and go to the bottom. All attachments are already sorted into two different categories: images and attachments.
- Reading Reports in Each Chat
Reading reports became available for each dialog. The corresponding button is in the same section "Information."
- Sending Images in Low Quality
Animated stickers take up a lot of space in the iMessage archive. In order to save the memory of your iPhone, go to Settings, choose Messages and activate the low quality mode.
