As an iphone user, you likely realize its tremendous capabilities, though you may not know everything it is truly able to do. To learn how to maximize all that the iphone can do for you, continue with the following article.
Update your phone when new updates are out. Keeping your phone updated will ensure that it is loaded with the latest options and software patches. Your pictures and other files will be saved to your computer; if you damage your iphone, you will not lose all your data.
Buy a screen protector to use on your iphone. Without it, the phone is likely to sustain damage from every day use. A scratch can be caused by even the tiniest particle of dirt you may have on your finger. It is in your best interest to always use a screen protector.
When you get to a webpage, you can use your fingers to search. A given webpage can be scrolled through box by box. You can scroll through the main page with two fingers.
Most iphone owners use their phones as cameras. Taking a lot of pictures, though, can leave you with many unorganized photos. The iphone has a built-in album to help organize your pictures. This is a great feature for when you are looking for a certain photo in a hurry.
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. Just tap the screen at any area and the words will be eliminated.
The calculator is a very valuable function on the iphone. When held vertically, the calculator is a standard calculator, but when held horizontally, it becomes a highly-functional scientific calculator.
The Safari browser in your phone is fully-functional and can do anything you could on a regular computer, including saving Internet pictures. Want to save a picture on the Internet? No problem – just tap on the picture and hold your finger down. The context menu that pops up will let you save the picture directly to your phone’s Camera Roll. You can even copy it into a message!
Press the sleep button if your iphone encounters an issue and press harder to reboot your phone if it is not responsive. Press on the sleep button and the home button at the same time. This will shut down the phone and restart it.
To help limit mistakes while typing, turn on the keyboard clicks under the sound settings of your phone. Hearing the clicks will let you know when the phone has read the character you typed, and that will help you avoid typing errors.
When you make AutoText shortcuts for commonly typed phrases, you can cut down the amount of time you spend emailing and texting on your iphone. It’ll be a lot faster to input frequently-used phrases (e.g. “I’m coming,” “Where are you?”) or email addresses (a shortcut for your own address is always useful). You will find this option in the keyboard settings of your iphone.
Now that you have read this article you know that there is a lot more that you can do with your iphone than you had already been using it for. Apply what you have learned here and have fun with your phone!
