There’s a lot to the iOS os that works on the iPhone. Numerous surprise functions and tweaks.
But there’s no handbook to take you through things. Apple provides you some quick suggestions, however from that point forward, it’s down to you.
Most individuals just utilize a portion of what their iPhone can, so Thanksgiving is a fun time for you to bend your tech expertise and who other iPhone owners some suggestions and techniques.
Here are 5 of my preferred iOS techniques.
# 1: Add a secret on-screen menu
AssistiveTouch is an ease of access function and what it does is it drifts a little menu on your display screen (which you can walk around on the screen with a finger) that enables you to perform gestures such as pinching or multi-finger swipes with a single finger and provides fast access to a range of functions.
There are 3 methods to trigger AssistiveTouch:
- Tap Settings > Accessibility > Touch > AssistiveTouch, then turn on AssistiveTouch
- Tap Settings > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcut and after that click AssistiveTouch
- Ask Siri: “Turn on AssistiveTouch”
You can tailor AssistiveTouch by going to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > AssistiveTouch, then click Customize Top Level Menu You can have as numerous as 8 icons revealing (or as couple of as one) so it’s exceptionally flexible.
It’s an incredible faster way to beneficial functions I utilize all the time (specifically for taking screenshots!).
# 2: Turn the back of your iPhone into a button
This is yet another ease of access function that apple has actually contributed to iOS that I like a lot (the other is AssistiveTouch — examine it out!).
To discover this function go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > Back Tap When there you’ll discover choices for Double Tap and Triple Tap.
There you will discover a substantial variety of actions, from system actions such as shooting up the App Switcher or Control Center, ease of access functions such as raising AssistiveTouch and Magnifier, scroll gestures, and even faster ways to make GIFs or QR codes.
I have my own set leading trigger Reachability (you understand, the function that brings the top of the screen to thumb level) with a double tap and to trigger Notification Center with a triple tap.
Great function that I’m now utilizing lot of times a day.
# 3: Pop-up app menus
Another function I utilize a lot is Haptic Touch to raise menus for apps. Simply long-press on an app and see what appears. It may be beneficial, it may not be. It depends upon the app!
You can even do the very same with integrated iOS functions, such as products within Control.
If you are discovering these difficult to trigger, you can change and explore the level of sensitivity
I want there was some sort of interface hint that you might continue apps or locations of the UI to trigger such choices, however alas you should go checking out for them.
So, go checking out! The reward is rewarding as you will likely discover some beneficial time-saving faster way.
# 4: Burst mode photography
Sometimes, the secret to getting a great picture is taking a great deal of images.
Prior to iOS 14, if you held down the shutter button in the Camera app, the iPhone would enter into “burst mode,” taking a lot of images that permitted the user to return and discover the very best one.
But now in iOS 14, pushing and holding down the shutter button changes to video recording mode. That itself is a great function, however I desire the old “burst mode” function back.
It’s there, however once again it’s concealed. And it’s likewise altered how it works.
Head over to Settings > Camera and you’ll see a setting called Use Volume Up for Burst
# 5: Find bad passwords
iOS keeps a track of any bad passwords that you may be utilizing. Bad passwords fall under 2 classifications:
- Reused passwords
- Passwords that have actually been dripped as part of information breaches
Check any passwords saved on your iPhone, and alter anything that is bad.
Settings > Passwords > Security Recommendations.
One of the more dull suggestions, however most likely most helpful!
