It seems as if almost everyone has an iphone nowadays. However, many people are not aware of all the ways it can be used. You are not the only one who feels that there is more they could be getting out of their iphone. You can turn your iphone into the powerhouse it’s supposed to be by using the handy advice presented below.
Now that you have an iphone, getting lost is a thing of the past. There is a maps app integrated into your phone when you purchase it, and it will allow you to check your location wherever you have service. This application is handy for getting back home, or locatiing a new destination.
As soon as any new updates are available, you should immediately update your phone. By updating your phone regularly, you’ll ensure that you’ll have the most up to date version on the operating system, including security patches and new features. You will also have to store all photos and other information you have on your computer in case something bad occurs to the phone, you’re covered.
You can now set location-based reminders through Siri. You can tell Siri to remind you to do something at a specific time. Now, you can simply say “when I arrive home” instead of specifying a time. Then, once you reach home, Siri will sense it and remind you. This is convenient for times that you want a reminder, but don’t know exactly what time you’ll need the reminder.
Are you sick of constantly getting iphone notifications? This is a simple way to turn them off. First, select the settings button, and then touch the notifications bar. Examine which apps are listed in the heading and delete things that you don’t need. This can also help your battery life.
Did you know that any website you visit can be made into an app? Open the website on your phone’s browser. Once you do this, tap the “Go” icon. You will then have the option of adding the website to the home screen. After it has been added, simply rename it to create the app.
AutoCorrect usually tries to suggest different words for you to use, but you don’t have to keep hitting “X” at each word. The screen can be tapped at any location as an alternative. That closes the box for you, a much faster solution.
You can snap a photo using your headphone cord. Simply frame the picture that you wish to take. Once you’re ready to take the picture, press the button that’s on the cord. This is how you snap the photo. Follow the same steps as usual to save or alter the photo.
Did you just type something into iMessage that you probably shouldn’t have? Perhaps the dreaded Auto Correct feature has skewed the meaning and garbled your intent. By shaking your phone quickly it can be undone. This automatically removes your most recent typing. This feature is optional, so if you want it, you have to enable it from the Settings menu.
Although iPhones aren’t cheap, they offer so much. You simply have to figure out how to access all the features you want to use. Apply the tips you just read, download more apps and explore your iphone to become more familiar with it.
