You can rest assured that your iPhone has been skillfully programmed and designed. It has app systems and an interface that puts the world at your fingertips. You can personalize and optimize your iPhone easily by changing a few settings. Within this article you will find some of these tricks to enhance your phone.
When you have an iPhone there is an app that helps you avoid getting lost. The integrated map and gps function allow you to use your wireless service to pinpoint where you are, and where you are going. This makes it easy to find your way home, or locate somewhere new if you have never been there before.
You can also take a picture through using your headphone cord on the iPhone. Steady your hand while focusing on your subject, and press the button on the cord when you are ready. When doing this, make sure you hold the iPhone steady so your shot remains clear and focused.
An iPhone can act as your GPS. If you find yourself in need of directions, you can always use the map feature as a GPS. This makes it easier to locate businesses like gas stations or restaurants. You can bookmark the map on your home screen to make it easy to access with just a tap.
Do you feel like the phrase you just typed into iMessage was the wrong one? Did Auto Correct change the meaning of it yet again? You can quickly undo these problems by shaking your iPhone. That undoes any recent typing. Because this feature is optional, you will have to enable it under “Settings”.
When you’d like to write an email or type up a note, and aren’t interested in using the words your iPhone is suggesting, you don’t need to press X to get rid of the suggestion box. Simply tap anywhere to get rid of this box.
With its standard settings, an iPhone is going to display message previews whenever a notification arrives, even if you have the screen locked. You may like this feature, or you may hate it. You can disable this feature. First, go to Settings, then Notifications, then Messages. Turn off the “Show Preview” option.
If you value your privacy greatly, then you should probably use Siri a little less. Apple records virtually all voice prompts to Siri and stores them on an internal server. Although this assists with improving speech recognition and Apple maintains that there is file security, be aware that your conversations with Siri may be recorded.
Use your handy iPhone to quickly snap a screenshot. Simply, find the screen you want a shot of and hold down your “home” button as you click your “sleep” button. If you see that your screen has turned white, you have successfully taken a screenshot.
As you can see by now, the iPhone’s programming is quite sophisticated. Between the way it looks and the programs it contains, iPhones are monsters of a device. If you use everything you’ve learned here, your iPhone will perform to the best of its abilities.
