Many people enjoy using an iPhone. However, you may not be aware of what makes this device so great. The following article will explain how the iPhone has revolutionized communications and introduce you to some amazing tricks you might not have known about, regardless of how long you’ve been an iPhone fan!
Dim the brightness of your iPhone to reduce battery consumption. You can accomplish this in your iPhone’s settings area. It will help extend the battery life for the days you need to have your iPhone on for long hours.
The iPhone is a wonderful device that can even help get you from one area to another. The map application should help you find directions to go anywhere as well as find a gas station, a restaurant or a store in an area you are not familiar with. Bookmark the map for ease of use.
Do you get too many notifications? To stop them, do the following. Begin by selecting the settings button, then tap the notifications bar. Check out the apps in the “Notification Center” and delete any unwanted apps. Doing this will keep the life of your battery long.
To get rid of the AutoCorrect suggestion box, don’t keep hitting the “X” button every time it doesn’t recognize a word. Just tap the screen! This closes the suggestion box immediately, so that you can type the word the proper way.
Take advantage of the different scrolling options of some websites using one or two fingers. If boxes were used to design the webpage, you will be able to scroll through only one box if you use one finger. Two fingers will allow scrolling through the whole page.
If you wish to send your message or draft a note but do not want to utilize corrected words, there is no need to touch the “x” to get rid of them. You only need to tap the screen anywhere to make the box disappear.
Always keep your iPhone updated with the latest OS release. Apple iPhones are close to being as complex as some computers today, so keeping your phone updated will include any necessary patches, bug fixes, security fixes or functionality issues. Updating is crucial especially if personal information is used or accessed if you go online with your phone.
Save time by leaving the .com off when typing in a web address on Safari. For instance, you may input “Amazon” for Amazon.com in your URL box to instantly go to the site.
You may well feel that your iPhone’s word suggestions cost you more time than they save. When typing, if endless word corrections start to bother you, just tap the screen to eliminate the boxes. This will prevent you from tapping the “x” all the time.
Using your iPhone can be really fun and really easy, but there are some aspects of the phone that make it seem tedious. For example, having to scroll up the length of pages can be a pain. You should not have to! Clicking the top of your screen where the status bar is, will bring you right back to the beginning of the page. This works for all long screens, especially one like iTunes.
With an iPhone, there is a simple step you can take to decrease the amount of time you spend typing. Go to Settings and then General to select the Keyboard option and add new shortcuts. You can set a short code for longer, often-used phrases. It will save you a lot of time because you will only have to type a few letters rather than an entire phrase.
You can take a screenshot of your iPhone. Just hold the power and home button at the same time. (Only tap them briefly, because when you press them too long, something undesirable can happen.) That takes a snapshot of the current display, which sends it to your Images application.
The iPhone offers an extremely useful dictionary as a standard feature that is programed into the iOs of the phone itself. Put this useful tool to work for you as you deploy just about any application. Simply tap and then hold down a word and pick the “define” option.
