10 Incredible iPhone Hacks
You may love your iPhone for texting, emailing, and of course surfing the internet. But did you know that your iPhone is capable of so much more? You might be amazed at what magic you can unlock on your iPhone, giving it even more capabilities. Take a look at these iPhone hacks that every iPhone owner should know.
1. Soothe eye strain.
You can invert the colors on your screen, making them darker and more soothing on the eye which comes in handy especially at night. To do this go to Settingsà Accessibility-à General-à Invert Colors to make this switch.
2. Shake away mistakes.
If you make a mistake while typing you can shake the phone back and forth for a quick erase. You don’t need to shake too hard, just a quick back and forth will do the trick and allow you to start over.
3. Have Siri stalk for you.
This is not as scary as it sounds! If you are outside and planes are overhead, you can ask Siri the question, “Planes overhead?” for detailed information about the flights. This can be especially fun and informative for kids to try.
4. Make photos a snap.
Use the volume buttons to take photos. This is especially helpful when taking selfies or taking photos from awkward angles that prohibit touching the screen button.
5. Look left for time stamps.
Are you trying to see what time a particular text came in? Simply swipe to the left of the text and you will see the time stamp. You can do this with any message, no matter how new or old it is.
6. Charge faster.
If you switch the phone into airplane mode, it will charge faster. Airplane mode shuts down many programs that suck energy, so the phone is able to take a quicker charge and get you up and running faster.
7. Text quicker.
You can add a period to the end of your sentences by double tapping the space bar. Just tap twice and the period will be added for you. No more typos!
8. Snap those screen shots.
See a picture you like? Want to save a convo? Then screen shot it. You can screen shot any image on your screen when you push the power button at the top of the phone as well as the main home button at the same time.
9. Make Siri smarter.
If Siri pronounces a word wrong, you can say, “That is not how you pronounce it,” and Siri will give you options for how the word should sound. You can select and option and she will save it for next time.
10. Find favorite websites faster.
If you have certain sites you visit daily, you can save them all in one place. Just add those favorite websites directly to your home screen. Just go to the site, tap the “Export” icon and then choose the “Add to Home Screen” option. You will then see a new icon appear that will take you to that site anytime.
