iPhone surveys show that many people do not know most of the features of their smartphones. In this article, we will talk about 10 apple smartphone functions you could not even aware of.
• Speed dial the last number
In the application “Phone” there is a non-obvious function that allows you to instantly call back the last dialed number. All you have to do is press the call button twice – and the iPhone immediately starts calling the last source number.
• Fast burst shooting
One of the most useful hidden features of the Camera application is continuous shooting. It is extremely easy to use. Press and hold the shutter button for a while. As long as you hold down the button, iPhone will take photos. This feature improves the quality of shooting subjects in motion.
Many people download or even buy applications to track the steps taken. But this feature is in the Health app. In addition to the number of steps, it takes into account the rise to the floor. Most apps from the App Store can’t boast of the latter feature.
• Scanning documents
The Notes scanner is built into the Notes application. To use it, you need to create a new note, click on the “+” icon above the keyboard, and select “Scan documents”. After that, it remains to point the camera lens at the document. The object will be automatically detected by the scanner, and the scanning accuracy can be adjusted.
• Filters in the Photos app
The “Photos” application allows you to fully work on any photo and significantly improve it. To use the available filters, open the photo in the application and click “Edit”. You can apply various filters, play with colors and lighting, rotate images, etc.
• Stop music or video on a timer
This feature will come in handy for those who are used to listening to music or watching videos before bed. In the application “Clock” you can set a timer to stop playing music or video. Set a timer and select “Stop”.
The Compass application has a Level tab. By opening it, you will get a full-fledged construction level. With its help, you can hang something exactly on the wall. But keep in mind that in iOS 12 the function “Compass” is transferred to the application “Roulette”.
• Hiding private photos
Everyone on the smartphone has a photo, not for the general public. Fortunately, you can hide such pictures on the iPhone. Select a photo (or several pictures at once), click “Share” and select “Hide” in the window. The photos you select will not appear in the shared feed, but they can be found in the Hidden album.
• Shaking to cancel
This feature appeared in the first versions of Apple’s mobile operating system. It allows you to undo the last action on the iPhone by shaking the smartphone. You shake the iPhone, and a menu appears with two options – Do Not Apply or Cancel. The function works wherever you can type.
• Magnifier mode
The iPhone can be used as a magnifying glass. This feature implements the camera capabilities of the device. To turn on magnifier mode, activate the switch with the following algorithm: “Settings” → “Basic” → “Universal access” → “Magnifier”, and then press the side button three times.
Apple cares about users, so it is constantly expanding the capabilities of its smartphones. This proves once again that before spending money on a new iPhone app, you should make sure that its functionality does not have the necessary option.
