From messaging your contacts to taking photos, your phones are one of the most important parts of your daily lives. iPhones have been quite a famous brand of phones and have a considerable customer number.
From taking screenshots using fingers to enabling Dark Mode, there are several hidden characteristics of iPhones and solutions to the problems of users who use them. Here are some neat tips for iPhone users.
Use the App Store
Take advantage of the Official App store and download some neat applications that will help you enjoy the smartphone even more.
There might be some issues with the store, though. If you are asking yourself why my account has been disabled in the app store since you cannot browse through app categories or download new applications, restarting the iPhone should be the first thing you want to do.
Another solution to the problem is to restore your Apple ID information and log out of the store and log in again.
Finally, get in touch with Apple customer support or take the smartphone to a service shop. Seeking professional help might be the only way to overcome the issue.
Take Screenshots Using Your Fingers
You might be used to taking a screenshot on your iPhone by pressing the buttons, but you can also use your fingers to take a screenshot easily. This activity is possible by tapping on the back of your iPhone. In order to unlock this unique feature, you have to go to the Settings menu and then click on the option Accessibility.
There, you shall find an option called Back Tap, and you have to click on it. There you shall find two options called Double Tap and Triple Tap. You have to assign functions to these options in order to use them.
Besides using the tapping method for taking screenshots, you can also use it for muting the iPhone, lock screen, volume raising and decreasing, and other functions. You can easily access them by tapping your phone twice or thrice, as per what you chose.
Visualize All the Apps
By default, your iPhone’s App Library sorts all your apps into specific folders. If you want to see them in a list, you can easily get it done. All you have to do is to drag the screen down after opening the App Library, and immediately all your apps shall get listed according to alphabetical order.
It also provides you with a search. You can either search for the app you need to find or scroll down the list looking for it.
Use a Timer on the Music App
You can stop the music on your phone from playing automatically after a certain period of time. If you want to stop your music from playing on its own after a fixed amount of time, you can go to the Timer option. The Timer function is available on the menu from the Clock app. You have to click on it and press on the option When Timer Ends.
Now, you need to scroll downwards to the bottom, followed by pressing on Stop Playing. Now, you need to set the time. And this is how a timer for your music is set. Once the time is over, the music shall stop playing automatically.
Customize the Default Message Responses
If you are unable to receive a call, your iPhone provides you with an option to send a message to the caller to provide an answer for not replying to the call. There are some default messages provided on your iPhone for such situations, like ‘Sorry, I can’t talk right now,’ ‘I’m on my way’ and “Can I call you later?’.
If you do not like to reply with any of these messages, you can simply change the default messages. You have to go to the Settings menu, then to the Phone option. Go to the Respond With Text option and click on it. Now, you can easily type the message you want to send to people whose phones you cannot reach.
Get Rid of the Entire Home Screen
If you want to get rid of your home screen icons, you have to long-press on the blank area on your home screen. Then, you have to tap on the page indicator that is located at the bottom of your screen.
Now, you have to tap on the tick sign at the bottom of each of the screens that you want to get moved. This procedure does not delete your apps; it just hides all of them in your App Library.
Invest in a Screen Protector
A screen protector might seem like an unnecessary accessory, but it is better to be safe than sorry. If you drop your iPhone on a hard surface accidentally, there is no telling what might happen to the smartphone. In some cases, it might not even turn on anymore.
