Is your iPhone your best friend. Don’t worry, our’s too. Considering you probably spend more time lovingly gazing into the screen of your iPhone than any other object in your life, it’s all the more reasonable that you know everything about it. Android users - we didn’t forget about you. Check back next week for our top Android hacks!
You’re a busy person, and you don’t have time to type out all the suffixes at the end of your URLs. Well now you don’t have to - holding down the “.” button will bring up all the suffixes for you to select.
If you’re looking to be more handy in the New Year, let your iPhone help with its down built-in bubble gauge. Swipe right in your (not delete-able) Compass App, and voila!
Yes, your iPhone has been stalking you in secret ever since you welcomed it into your life. It knows how many times you’ve visited your favourite places, and now you can too. Go to: Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services (Scroll to Bottom) > Frequent Locations (Scroll Down) > Ta da!
We’ll start off with one that you may have already known - your iPhone charges much faster when it’s on airplane mode!
With a hack like this, we’re wondering why we don’t see people spontaneously shaking the hell out of their phones every couple of minutes. Yes, your iPhone basically functions like your childhood favourite Etch-A-Sketch, as you’re able to erase typing or photo editing mistakes just by shaking it. Try it out by typing a message to a friend and shake it off!
Check the timestamp of a message in your Messages or WhatsApp by simply swiping left!
Yes, it’s nice that your iPhone’s camera autofocuses the image for you, but that can be annoying when you want to get creative and set the focus yourself. Now you can! Instead of just tapping the Camera screen to focus the image, hold it down for a second or two, and an ‘AF Locked’ option will pop up. Snap away!
Okay let’s face it, personalised ringtones are so yesterday. I mean, who still uses keeps their phone off vibrate anyway? Well now you can still know who’s calling while you’re phone’s on silent, thanks to an option to assign a unique vibration to your contacts. If you want to get really fancy, you can create your very own vibrating beat too! Address Book > Contact of your choice > Edit > Ringtone > Vibration.
You’ve finally remember to close all our apps, but swiping up with your pointer finger for what seems like 10 minutes is just not fun. I mean, how many apps did you have open? We’ve all been there. Your iPhone actually supports multi-finger gestures for closing apps too. Three is always better than one in this case.
If you’re someone who likes listening to music before dozing off, this is a great way to not have your phone playing music into the night. Go to your Clock App > Timer > When Timer Ends > Stop Playing. This works great when you’re working out as well, as your music will stop playing after you’ve sweated enough.
iPhones are the best things have happened to us, but its battery life is notoriously bad. What we don’t know is that we’re indeed the culprits for the premature deaths of our batteries. Instead of charging your iPhone to more 100% (and keeping it like that overnight), get into the habit of charging your phone to around 95%+ and unplug it. This will keep your battery fresh for much longer.
Have you ever had to stand on one foot dangling over the edge of a building just to get enough signal to send a Tweet? Okay, maybe we’re exaggerating a bit here, but it can be a pretty awkward process of find signal on occasion. Instead of risking your life, do a simply call *3001#12345#*, which will promptly bring up a “Field Test” pop up. Select Neighbourhood Measurements to see what your stats are. As a general rule, anything above -80 is full bars, and anything below -110 would make it difficult for you to even send a text.
If you’re obsessed with note taking, know that your iPhone will now let you indulge with a whole set of tools (pens, rulers, markers, the while shebang) to take your obsession to a new level. Simply open the Notes App > On My Phone > Write A New Note on bottom right corner, and you’ll see the new tools on the bottom!
