Many people enjoy using an iPhone. However, you may not be aware of what makes this device so great. This article offers tips and techniques for today’s iPhone user.
A great benefit of having an iPhone is that you do not need to purchase a GPS system. The iPhone contains an accurate GPS system. Since the iPhone’s GPS system already knows current location, simply put in your desired destination, and you will receive concise directions, just as you would with a regular GPS system.
In order to take advantage of the iPhone’s ability to make your life easier, be sure to investigate applications that utilize GPS technology to provide you with the locations of nearby gas stations, grocery stores, and restaurants. Doing so will help you save time on all of your errands no matter where you happen to be.
Did you know that unlike many cell phones, you can assign a ringtone for each feature on your phone? Well, it is the truth! All you have to do is go to the settings, tap on the sounds feature and assign the tone. For contacts, tap on a contact and assign a ringtone to this specific entry!
Save the battery life on your iPhone by turning off Notifications and Location Services until you need to use them. Your iPhone will automatically reach out and update these functions regularly and use battery power in the process. Be aware of the power your iPhone is using, and you will have it when you need it.
Have you ever wanted to quickly navigate to the top of a page? Instead of trying to scroll back up, click on the status bar that’s at the top of the screen. In most of the iPhone apps (including Safari, mail, and your contacts) this will quickly bring you back to the top of whatever page you’re on.
Even if you do not plan to use your iPhone for a while, you should store it with a dead battery. Allow your phone to fully charge each time it is put on the charger instead of letting it run down. Otherwise, you run the risk of adversely affecting the chemical composition of the battery, possibly damaging the phone.
Have you ever wanted to create a playlist when you’re not at your computer? Well, now you can Open the music app and click the “Add Playlist” button. You can then give it a name. After that, you’ll be able to click on individual songs, albums, or artists to add them to your new playlist.
As you browse web pages, scrolling with a single finger or two fingers is an option. A website that is divided into sections can be perused slowly using one fingered scrolling. If you use two fingers, you will be able to scroll around an entire page.
You can glean images from the Internet when you use the Safari browser on your iPhone. Want to save a picture on the Internet? No problem – just tap on the picture and hold your finger down. You can save pictures to your iPhone’s Camera Roll by using the helpful context menu that appears. You can also choose to copy it to a message.
It is easy to save an image from Safari on your iPhone. When you are on the image you want, tap and hold down on the image. A message will come up, asking you if you want to “Cancel” or “Save Image”. Obviously, you will want to pick the “Save Image” option.
There is no doubt an iPhone is simple to use when surfing the Web. However, it can be a real drag to try to scroll all the way back to the beginning of a long web page. This can be avoided by making one simple click. Tap the status bar to return to the top of the page. This works for other long screens (like iTunes lists) too.
When you need to tag an email message as unread, you may have to hunt for the command that allows you to do so. Find Details, click on Unread, and when the email is reopened, it will be seen as unread.
The iPhone has the ability to screenshot anything. Simply do a quick press of your Home button and your power button all at once. (Press them both briefly; pressing them at length will cause undesired effects.)By doing this, a snapshot will be taken of the current display which will be sent directly to you to Images app.
If your iPhone freezes and the Sleep/Wake button does not work, do not worry. There is another option. Try pressing and holding on the Home Button and the Sleep/Wake button instantaneously. Then, you’ll be notified to slide the tab that will turn off your phone. This type of hard-reset can revive your frozen iPhone.
It is very easy to share a URL from your iPhone. To do this, just tap on the URL of the page that you are looking on. Then, tap on the share. A new email will pop up containing the URL and all you have to do is type in the name of the recipient.
While you can’t delete the apps that come with your iPhone, you can certainly hide from view those that you rarely use. Try placing them in a folder together and placing the folder on the last page of your app lists. This way those rarely used apps that can’t be deleted will at least be moved out of the way.
Go to Settings and then Message to enable to the word counter option. If you do not have unlimited texting, this feature will tell you how many characters your texts are as you type them. Going past 160 characters typically counts as two text messages and eats up your allotment faster.
