Do you make the most out of your iPhone? Most probably, you do not. iPhones are loaded with features and hidden settings that most users are not aware of. With these embedded settings, you can customize your iPhone experience and make your life easier. In this blog, we will discuss the hidden iPhone settings and how to apply them.
- Raise to Wake
For those who have an iPhone 6s or later, the Raise to Wake feature is handy. After turning it one, you just have to raise your phone to see the notifications. Even though you will be able to look at the notifications, the screen will stay locked and secure. In order to enable this mode, just go to the Settings app and select Display and Brightness. After that, turn on the Raise to Wake feature.
- Prioritize specific downloads
Do you want to save up battery? Well instead of updating all the applications together, you can prioritize app updates. This feature is especially useful while setting up a new iPhone. Just locate the application you wish to prioritize and long-press it. Now, just select Prioritize Download.
- Adjust the flashlight brightness
Even though the iPhone’s inbuilt flash is very handy in dark environments, not all situations need an intense flash. Thankfully, the brightness of the flash can be adjusted. In order to increase the flashlight intensity, just launch the Control Center. With your finger, swipe upwards from the lower portion of the display. After that, firmly press and hold the flashlight icon.
- Remove unused apps
Is your iPhone clogged up with too many apps? In order to make more storage space, just delete the apps you do not use. As a matter of fact, your phone will do it for you. Go to the Settings and select General. Tap on iPhone Storage and activate the Offload Unused Apps feature. If you wish to get the removed app back, just install it again from the App Store.
- Quickly select camera mode
The iPhone’s stock Camera app is amazing, and it comes with several modes. However, sometimes users end up missing a good shot because they were browsing the different modes. Now, whenever you want to take a picture quickly, just firmly press the Camera button. Now, you can select modes such as Selfie or Slow-motion straight from your iPhone’s Home screen.
- Turn text into emoji
Rather than sifting through various screens of emojis to locate the most apt one, you can just type and convert it into an emoji. In the Messages app, just input any text, and hit the emoji icon located next to the spacebar. Now, some of the words will get replaced with emojis. In order to change a word to emoji, just press on the orange word and the emoji will replace it. Some words have several emojis, and you can select the one you want.
- Find Safari tabs efficiently
Is your Safari browser usually overflowing with tabs? Well, in order to locate tabs easily, just open Safari browser when the iPhone is in landscape mode. After that, press the tabs icon. A Search Tabs option will now be available.
