25 iPhone Tips & Tricks | YOU WISH YOU KNEW SOONER!!

Hey everyone! Grab your iPhones because I have 25 super useful tips and tricks that you probably forgot all about. These handy features can make your iPhone experience much smoother, and some of them are real game-changers. Let’s dive right in!

Imagine you’re scrolling through Instagram and you come across a hilarious picture that you just have to share with your friends. Instead of the usual routine of taking a screenshot, saving it, and then opening another app to send it, there’s a much quicker way. Simply screenshot the image, tap and hold on that screenshot, and then swipe up to access your home screen. Open WhatsApp (or any other app) and drop the screenshot directly into your chat. It’s that simple! This trick also works with multiple photos from your photo library, making sharing a breeze.

Here’s another gem you might have missed. While navigating through your apps, like Notes, Settings, or even Health, you can find yourself deep in various menus. To quickly go back to a previous screen, tap and hold on the back button. This brings up a menu of all your recent screens, allowing you to jump back to any of them instantly. This trick also works in browsers like Chrome and Safari, helping you navigate back through your browsing history more efficiently.

Ever find yourself scrolling endlessly to the bottom of a page and then needing to get back to the top? Instead of furiously swiping up, just tap on the status bar at the top of your screen. It’ll instantly jump you back to the top. This works in almost every app, including YouTube, Spotify, and Safari.

One of the lesser-known but incredibly useful tricks is “Shake to Undo.” If you make a mistake while typing, editing a photo, or moving icons on your home screen, just shake your iPhone. A pop-up will appear, asking if you want to undo the last action. Confirm it, and your mistake is instantly undone.

Sharing content between apps can sometimes feel cumbersome, but there’s a gesture that simplifies it. Use three fingers to pinch on the screen to copy an image or text, then go into another app and pinch out with three fingers to paste it. It’s faster than using the share sheet and finding the specific app.

Let’s talk about the keyboard. Most people know that holding down the space bar turns your keyboard into a trackpad, making it easier to move the cursor. But did you know you can also tap anywhere on the keyboard while holding the space bar to start selecting text? Once you’ve selected your text, just tap again to exit the selection mode. This precise control is perfect for editing text on the fly.

For quick access to special characters or numbers, press and hold the special character key, select the character you need, then release to continue typing. Tapping twice on a word selects it, and triple-tapping selects an entire paragraph. Holding down any letter reveals special characters related to that letter, and this even works for currency symbols.

In the Notes app, you can draw shapes using the markup tool. To make your shapes look perfect, just pause at the end of your drawing, and your iPhone will automatically tidy them up. This works across Photos, Notes, the Mail app, and even screenshots.

The search bar in iOS is more powerful than you might think. Besides finding apps and contacts, it can also perform quick calculations. Type in something like “25 – 7,” and it will show you the result, which is 18.

When it comes to organizing your home screen, moving apps one by one can be tedious. Instead, tap and hold to start moving an app, then tap on additional apps to stack them up. You can then move them all at once.

If you find yourself frequently taking photos with your iPhone, turning on the “Use Volume Up for Burst” option in the camera settings is a must. This allows you to take a burst of photos by holding down the volume up button. Later, you can pick the best shots from the burst.

Spam calls are a nuisance, and one way to combat them is by removing your personal information from the web. A service like Incog can help. It searches for your personal data online and removes it, protecting you from unwanted calls and potential scams. Use the code “hailes” at checkout for a 60% discount on your first year.

Siri has some magical tricks up her sleeve too. You can say “Lumos” to turn on your flashlight and “Nox” to turn it off. You can also quickly open apps by saying commands like “Open Spotify” or “Open Instagram.”

Did you know your iPhone has a built-in measuring app? It uses the camera to measure objects, and it also includes a leveling tool for tasks like hanging pictures or mounting a TV.

The Weather app also has a hidden gem. By tapping the map icon, you can view real-time weather conditions, including wind speeds, temperatures, and precipitation around the globe.

For foodies, the Photos app offers a neat trick. If you have a picture of a meal, swipe up and use the Visual Lookup feature to find recipes for that dish. This way, you can recreate delicious meals you come across in your daily life.

If you like falling asleep to music or videos, use the Clock app to set a timer that will stop playback when the timer ends. This will save battery and prevent your device from running all night.

Setting a timer is even quicker with a shortcut. Press and hold the timer icon in the Control Center to set a timer without opening the app.

For better focus, use the Background Sounds feature found by pressing and holding the ear icon in the Control Center. Choose from various sounds designed to help you concentrate or relax.

The Back Tap feature in the Accessibility settings allows you to assign actions to double or triple taps on the back of your iPhone. For instance, you can set a double tap to take a screenshot and a triple tap to lock your screen.

Customizing contact ringtones and vibrations is a great way to know who’s calling without looking at your phone. You can even create unique vibration patterns for each contact.

Lastly, let’s talk about some forgotten but extremely useful tricks. In Safari or Chrome, take a screenshot and switch to “Full Page” mode to save the entire webpage. This is handy for keeping recipes or long articles. In the Photos app, if you pause a video, you can select and copy text from the paused frame. This is perfect for extracting information from documents. And instead of closing apps one by one, swipe up with three fingers to close three apps at once.
