Discover All The Things Your Iphone Can Do
There are lots of reasons why the iphone is as popular as it is. Multi-taskers enjoy the ability to customize apps and features to meet their time management needs. This article will reveal new ways to help you fully use the power of your iphone.
If you get your iphone wet, try to use rice when drying it out. Phones are commonly dropped in water from puddles or toilets. Do not use a hair dryer. Instead, use a paper towel to wipe it. Then, place the phone in a Ziploc bag that is full of rice. Then dry it out overnight, or at the bare minimum for several hours.
If you want to browse the web with ease on the iphone, try a larger keyboard. You do not have to purchase a larger keyboard for this to happen. Instead, you can simply turn your iphone clockwise 90 degrees, then lightly tap the URL bar in Safari. You will have an easier to see, larger keyboard so you can type more efficiently.
You don’t have to append “.com” to web addresses while you are browsing. You simply need to put in the main part of the address and the browser will take you to the correct site. While it may not seem like much, doing so will save you a lot of time over the life of your phone.
Another benefit of the iphone is the ability to navigate. The map feature can help you find the nearest gas station or navigate an unfamiliar area. By simply bookmarking the map, access becomes much easier.
The Safari browser and mail are very popular, but not everyone knows how to save photos and images to the phone from them. Simply touch the picture and hold for a couple seconds. A box will come up asking if you want to save that image.
Are there umlauted or accented letters you wish to include in your messages? Here’s what you have to do. Touch the letter you’d like to see more options for, and hold down for a few seconds. You’ll see a box appear that contains many extra key choices. You will then be able to type as many fancy letter as you want.
Have you ever found yourself doubting your most recent entry into iMessage? Is AutoCorrect confusing the meaning of what you write? Simply shake the iphone and you can undo the message in an instant. This will get rid of recent typing automatically. This feature is optional, so if you want it, you have to enable it from the Settings menu.
Your iphone defaults to showing you a preview of your incoming messages when the phone is locked. This is something that some find convenient, but others do not like so much. If this annoys you, you should know that you can turn this feature off. Access settings, select “notifications” and then enter the “messages” option. You then want to disable the Show Preview option.
You should be careful using the Siri voice command system with your iphone if you are worried about your privacy. Apple records virtually all voice prompts to Siri and stores them on an internal server. While the intent of this storage is to enhance Siri’s speech recognition, and the storage is secure, you should still know that anything you tell Siri could be recorded.
It’s important that you always have the most recently updated version of the OS. The reason you want to keep it updated is that Apple is constantly releasing patches and fixes for bugs within the phone. These updates are vital to keep your phone in top running order.
The fact that the iphone is so popular is a result of how useful it is. The endless features, apps and functions hold endless possibilities for the user. It may take a while to learn all of the features. You probably won’t use them all, but you can certainly make the phone work perfectly for you with what you have learned in this article.
