Eight iPhone Tips You Should Know


Smartphones have become an essential part of our daily lives. Every day, millions of people use their iPhones for calls, messages, browsing the internet, and capturing memories. However, are you using your iPhone as effectively as you could be? 

Whether it is the iPhone XS, iPhone 11, or any other model in the range, these incredible devices are able to do so much that many users are unaware of. To help you, we have taken a closer look at the top eight tips and tricks to enhance your experience:

1. Speed up your phone
Experiencing a slow iPhone? This is a common problem for many users, but it can be quick to resolve. The first thing to do is remove any apps that you are not using but if that does not work, check the battery settings to see which apps are using the most processing power.
You should also occasionally switch off your phone to clear the memory and make sure it is fully updated.

2. Enable dark mode

The iOS 13 update enabled users to enable dark mode on their phones.

This unique feature changes the color scheme that features a black or dark-grey background and white text.

Not only does this help to conserve battery, but it also makes the phone easier to use late at night.
3. Create a custom iMessage

Need to politely decline a phone call? You can set up a custom iMessage to explain to callers why you are unable to answer.

To turn this on, go to Settings > Phone > Respond With Text to set up your three responses.

4. Force reset your iPhone X and up

Need to conduct a force reset on your phone? From the iPhone X and up, you simply need to press and release the volume up button, press and release the volume down button, hold down the side button until you see the Apple logo.
5. Set custom ringtones and vibrations

Want to know who’s calling without looking at your phone? iPhone users can set up custom ringtones and vibration patterns for specific callers. To do this, open the contact you would like to customize and click ‘Edit’ at the top right. Click ‘Ringtone’, and from there, you can then create a unique rhythm and pattern!

6. Capture photos while filming

Did you know you can capture high-quality still images while filming?

When you are next filming that magical moment, simply click the camera button that appears in the bottom left of the screen
7. Autocorrect replacement

If you are looking to speed up your texting, your iPhone will let you create your own personal shortcuts.

You can set it up so that whatever you type, your iPhone will add in a replacement. That means you can set it up so that when you type abbreviations, such as OMW, the phrase ‘On My Way’ will appear.
8. Use AirPods as hearing aids

Apple AirPods are not only for playing your favorite tunes. You can turn them into hearing aids simply by going to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls.

This will then magnify any voices and ensure you can hear more clearly.
