The iPhone, as we all know it, is no doubt one of the most popular and well-known pieces of technology ever known to man. Most of us have an iPhone and if not then we at least wish to own one. Apart from being a solid device and a status symbol, the iPhone also has some of the finest features to boast of. While we know about many of the device’s major features, all thanks to the marketing policy of the brand, there are other noteworthy ones which are overlooked. So to solve all your iPhone woes, and to make your device a lot more functional, we are here to provide with a list of iPhone features, which you can’t even pretend to know about, so let’s get started.
Make your searches, faster, quicker: Well, there are few things technology cannot do, for everything else, there is the iPhone. When it comes to searching for something on your device, it is all about speed as well as precision. Save time by holding down the full stop icon whilst typing out an address to bring up a shortcut series of URL suffixes, you can find quick shortcuts for just about anything, which is such an advantage. In a time crunch, this hack can help you in shaving a few extra seconds of your search and prove to be very advantageous.
Find out how much does your iPhone really know about you: The iPhone is like Bigg Boss keeping an eye on your every movement; soTopTop much so that it proves to be almost sinister. So to find out, how much does the iPhone exactly know about your or whereabouts, just head to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations. In here you can actually see the places you have frequented to and moreover, check how long have you spent in each place! Now that is one device a detective would not wait to get their hands on.
You can take a photo without even touching your iPhone: This iPhone hack is known by many, but just in case you do not know, the device uses your volume control button to click a picture; this will make sure that you do not have to touch the screen and disrupt the alignment of the picture. Plus, while using the volume button for clicking pictures, you can actually hold the device with both your hands for additional stability. However, in case you do not wish to touch your device altogether to click a picture, say, if it’s on a tripod, then you can easily hit the volume button on a pair of compatible, connected headphones, which will provide with the same effect without attempting to hit the touchscreen controls.
You can easily look for keywords on a page: Now this is an excellent feature, especially if you are someone who doesn’t have the time nor the willingness to read a full-fledged article on a certain topic. Most people do not know about this, but you can easily search for words on a webpage in mobile and read up on the facts you were looking for rather than browsing the entire article. On any web page, type the word you’re looking for in the URL bar, but don’t tap on Go Instead, scroll down and you’ll see an option to search for the word, and you can then tap through each instance. This particular hack is a time saver and you pretty much work as the Control “F” feature on the laptop or computer.
You can check if the surface is level: Yes! You read that right. Besides a compass, the iPhone also has a spirit level tool which can help you in leveling things accurately, which means you can perfectly hang your pictures right, set up your tripod straight, and check if you DIYs are perfect or not. If you load up the Compass, then swipe left, you’ll find a spirit level tool and it can prove to be your best friend if you have OCD issues. Either use the spirit level with your phone laid out flat or with it perched on its side in either portrait or landscape mode. By tapping on the screen you can easily measure the difference between two surfaces to see how the angles vary.
You can easily hide private photos: Now this hack is for all those who are notoriously known for keeping private things, very private. Well, let’s face it, we all hand out our mobiles to our family and friends and pray to dear God that they do not swipe left or right. If you have a collection of sensitive images or private pictures which you are not open to showing other people you can easily hide them, and keep them intended for personal viewing only. Inside Photos, select one or more images, then tap the Share button and choose Hide. The selected pictures will become invisible via, collections, Moments and years views, however, you can still access them through the Album screen.
Your iPhone can act like a sleep reminder: In our daily lives, the thing we compromise on, the most, is sleep. So allow your mother some rest, and let your iPhone pester you to go to sleep for a change. Your device is not only a reminder to wake you up, but at the same time to let you know when to hit the sack;. All you got to do is Open up the Clock app on your iPhone and then tap on the Bedtime link at the bottom. Your phone will ask you what time you want to wake up in the morning. When that’s set, you can decide the days of the week you want the alarm to go off, and then how many hours of sleep you wish to derive each day. Your phone will then save all this information, and remind you to go to sleep on time. For those of you looking forward to a healthy lifestyle, this particular hack can prove to be very handy.Top iPhone Features
