Many people consider owning an iphone a curse. It can do many things thanks to the apps it has. For more exciting and interesting ways to use your iphone, check out the tips below.
If your iphone is wet, consider using rice. It is common to drop the phone in a water puddle, the toilet or something wet. Put your device into a bag with rice to help soak up the moisture. Leave it there overnight, and in almost every case, it will be fine in the morning.
You can use Safari to just do one tap and make a phone call. For example, let’s say you are looking for a dry cleaner. While on the Internet, find the number and your phone can call it. Touch the number itself, and the connection will be made automatically.
Safari and mail applications are widely used by iphone owners, but many are not aware of how to save images with these apps. Simply touch the picture and hold for a couple seconds. A box pops up with the save option.
Download an app that will allow you to upload files on your iphone and use it as a storage device. Upload photos, music or other files with the app. Then, you can easily transfer them to any computer via the phone, or just access them directly from the phone itself.
Are you doubting the wisdom of what you just typed into iMessage? Have you ended up with something strange added to your message by Auto Correct? There’s a super-easy way to undo the damage: just give your iphone a quick shake. It erases the most recent typing you have entered. Be aware that this feature is optional, and you will need to check in the Settings area to ensure that it’e enabled.
Via the default setting, the iphone shows previews of messages when the lock screen is on. This could come in handy or it could be annoying. If you are among those who find it bothersome, you can disable it. Go into your settings menu, choose notifications and then messages. Show Preview is the option you want to turn off.
The iphone has the option, as do other smartphones, to alert you visually to calls and messages you are receiving on your phone. If you want to have a silent notification, the iPhone’s LED camera can be set to blink whenever you receive a call and/or message. Access this feature by utilizing the settings menu, and then tapping on “general” then “accessibility”. Select the button “LED Flash on Alerts.”
Your iPhone’s Safari mobile browser will allow you to do just about everything that you would be able to do on a regular Internet browser. In Safari, just touch and hold on a photo you’d like to save. This will go right into your Camera Roll after you save it. You can also send it to someone in a message.
If an iphone freezes up, you can easily perform a rest to get everything back in working order. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home key at the same time. The phone will then shut down and restart as a signal that everything went well.
Owning an iphone means being introduced to the millions of amazing things it can do. However, you can not take advantage of the benefits if you are lost in sorting through them all. Use what you learned here and make your iphone work for you.
