Having an iphone can be both a blessing and a curse. The amount of things you can do with the phone itself, or through the seemingly infinite number of apps is simply mind boggling. In order to obtain some knowledge on some important functions of your iphone, continue reading.
If your iphone gets wet, you can dry it with rice. It is not uncommon to drop your phone in the toilet, a puddle of water or something else wet. Instead of using a hair dryer, wipe your phone with a soft paper towel and then put it into a ziploc bag filled with rice. Once the rice has had several hours to absorb moisture (leaving your phone in the bag overnight is ideal), your phone should be dry again.
You can use Safari to just do one tap and make a phone call. Let’s say you want to find a dry cleaner. When you locate the phone number of the cleaners, you don’t need to switch over to the phone component of your iphone. A simple touch of the number and your call is connected directly to the exact business you searched for.
One of the best buys you can make for your iphone is a protective screen. Without it, the phone is likely to sustain damage from every day use. Just a tiny speck of dirt can scratch the screen. Be sure that you always have a screen protector on your phone.
It is possible to create an application from any of your favorite websites. First, navigate to the site. When there, all you need to do it to press the “Go” button. One of the options you’ll be presented with is adding the website to your iPhone’s home screen. Whenever you get it on the home page, it can be renamed, and then, you’ll have your own app of the site.
The iphone displays previews of messages coming in on your lock screen. This could come in handy or it could be annoying. If this annoys you, you should know that you can turn this feature off. Choose the Settings menu, go to notifications and then touch messages. The facility you wish to disable is known as “Show Preview”.
Just like with lots of other smartphones, the iphone can be set to give you visual indicators of when you receive calls and/or messages. For silent but important notifications, you can set the LED camera flash to blink when a call or message comes in. Access this feature by utilizing the settings menu, and then tapping on “general” then “accessibility”. Select “LED Flash” for your alerts.
Whenever you’re using your iphone, you can take a quick screenshot. Once you have selected the screen you would like a screenshot of, push down on your “home” button and make sure to click the “sleep” button the same time. Your screenshot is captured when your screen turns white momentarily.
The Safari browser on the iphone allows you to do virtually everything you can do on a large computer, and that includes bringing images down from websites. If you find an image you want to preserve on your phone, simply tap it and hold it. The popup menu allows you to put the picture in your Camera Roll. There is also the option of using the picture in a message you will send.
If you’re an iphone owner, then you are probably at least partially aware of the vast number of things it can provide you. However, because there are so many, it’s easy to get lost in trying to figure everything out. The tips above will have you spending less time looking and more time taking advantage of the power of the iphone.
