Many people consider owning an iphone a curse. The number of integrated features combined with the countless array of applications is truly staggering. This article will give you tips and techniques to use all of the iPhones functions.
An iphone makes it virtually impossible to get lost. The iPhone’s maps app comes loaded onto your phone right when you get it, making it a breeze to locate yourself as long as you’re connected to the network. This makes it easy to find your way home, or locate somewhere new if you have never been there before.
Through the aid of Siri, you can create custom location reminders. Siri already gives reminders based on a pre-set time. It will call you when you get home. Then, once you reach home, Siri will sense it and remind you. That way, if you have no idea when you will reach home, you are still going to have a reminder.
Do you get annoyed by receiving so many notifications on your iphone? There is a way to easily turn off the notifications. Go to settings, then select notifications. Review the applications listed below the heading “Notification Center.” Take away anything you do not want to be there. This will also help your battery last longer.
You can create a unique library of shortcuts and meanings with your device. When working with diction, this helps the phone automatically recognize what you are trying to say. Add as many shortcuts and phrases as you want. The autocorrect feature will help you out, too, by speeding up your typing and saving you from doing a lot of editing.
You can take photos with the cord from your headphones. Simply frame the picture that you wish to take. Hold your cord button and this will give you the ability to take your picture. This will process the photograph for you. Saving the picture in your iphone is done just like you do with any other picture.
Use the following trick to make messaging quicker. If you don’t like the dictionary’s suggestion for a word replacement, just tap the screen anyplace to get rid of it. The little “X” does not have to be hit!
Taking full advantage of your iPhone’s multimedia capabilities just makes good sense! You can download television shows, movies, and other video clips, so that your iphone can be an entertainment device wherever you go.
Did you just type something into iMessage that you probably shouldn’t have? Has Auto Correct made you sound silly? Have no fear! Clearing the information is as simple as gently shaking your iphone. This feature will undo everything you have recently typed. This feature is optional, so if you want it, you have to enable it from the Settings menu.
Like many smartphones, you can set the iphone to provide a visual indicator of incoming calls and messages. 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 the settings menu, go to “general” and then “accessibility”. Turn the LED Flash on for alerts. It is just that easy.
The Safari browser on your iphone is capable of almost everything your standard, full-size computer browser is capable of–including saving images you find online. You can save pictures on the Internet to your phone by tapping down for several seconds. A menu will appear that will allow you to save the image. You can then put it in a message if you want.
Keep the firmware on your iphone current. This make the device more usable and your battery’s life longer. Update firmware by uploading the latest iTunes to a computer and connecting the phone to said computer. ICloud can connect to an Apple computer if you have one.
Anyone with an iphone probably already knows that its capabilities are seemingly endless. However, because there are so many, it’s easy to get lost in trying to figure everything out. Apply what you have learned in this article to maximize your upside to owning this device.
