Some people like to pretend they know it all when it comes to Apples iPhone. I promise: you dont know it all. Even if youve been carrying an iPhone in your pocket since the first day the handset became available back in 2007, you still dont know everything there is to know about all of the phones features, because there are just too many things baked into iOS to remember them all.
Make your camera flash blink when new messages arrive
Heres a great example of an accessibility feature thats useful for everyone.
Open the Settings app and tap on General, then Accessibility. Scroll down to LED Flash for Alerts and slide the toggle to on.
Use your camera flash as a flashlight
Speaking of the camera flash
many people know about this one, but you would be surprised at how many people dont.
Drag up from the bottom of your screen to open your iPhones Control Center, and then tap the bottom-left button to turn your iPhones flash on and use it as a flashlight. Tap that same button one more time to turn it off.
Take vertical panoramas
Everyone loves using the built-in panorama feature in the iPhones camera, but most people dont pause for a moment to realize that panoramas dont always have to be done in landscape. Instead, you can move your iPhone vertically while in panorama mode to capture something very tall in a single frame.
Dim your display quickly when reading in the dark
The iPhones auto-dim feature never seems to work the way you want it to. As a result, most people leave it off. When youre reading something in the dark though, its nice to have a quick and easy way to dim your display.
Well, now you can do it in a fraction of a second. Heres how:
Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Zoom -> Enable Zoom
Tap the screen quickly with three fingers three times
Press Choose Filter > Low Light, then set Zoom Region to "Full Screen Zoom"
Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Accessibility Shortcut (its at the bottom) -> Set to "Zoom"
Now anytime you triple-tap your home button on any screen, your display will dim.
Make TouchID work faster
TouchID is rumored to be getting some pretty big improvements on the upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, but you can make Apples fingerprint scanner work faster on your iPhone right now.
Instead of just recording your thumbprint (or whichever finger you use most often) once, save it two or even three times as different prints. Youll be shocked at how much faster your iPhone unlocks after you do this.
Open Touch ID & Passcode in the Settings app to add your print multiple times.
Save money while traveling by only using iMessage
Roaming charges can add up fast, so Wi-Fi is your best friend while youre travelling. Using a VoIP app is a good way to communicate while youre abroad, but what about messaging? Asking people to use a different messaging app just while youre travelling probably isnt going to work out very well.
Guess what any iPhone user can message you just as he or she always does using iMessage. Meanwhile, you can ensure you dont pay any pricey roaming charges for messages that might otherwise be sent as an SMS.
Just open the Settings app and go to Messages. Then disable Send as SMS as well as MMS Messaging just to be safe. You can also disable cellular data completely now, and youll still be able to message everyone you know with an iPhone.
Use your earbuds to snap a picture
Of course you know that you can use the volume buttons on your iPhone to snap a picture while using the camera (if you didnt, enjoy that eleventh hidden trick), but did you know you can do the same thing with the volume buttons on a connected headset?
Now you do.
Charge your phone faster
There are tons of areas where the iPhone is a class-leader. Battery life, unfortunately, is not one of them.
Do yourself a favor: buy an iPad charger. Theyre just $19 on Amazon, and theyll charge your phone much faster than the adapter that ships with it.
Apple has also confirmed in the past that using an iPad charger with an iPhone will not do any damage.
Save a draft with one swipe
As we noted in a recent post, the iPhones Mail app includes a great hidden feature that lets you save an email as a draft with one single swipe. The draft stays visible at the bottom of your screen while you look elsewhere in the Mail app, and then you can continue working on it again with a single tap.
Last but certainly not least, the one iPhone trick every single iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus user needs to know.
On any screen no matter where you are, double-touch on the iPhones home button to shift the entire screen downward briefly, thus allowing you to reach things near the top of the display without having to use two hands. Since the iPhones screens are bigger than ever now, this is an insanely useful feature that youll love.
Note that this is a double-touch gesture, not a double-tap. Dont actually press the home button, just touch its surface twice quickly.
