Your iPhone has some features and tricks that you don’t know about. Several experts are publishing their reports on how to use these hidden capabilities so that owners can use them properly and efficiently.
iPhone has some hidden tricks since it is a feature-rich device. Since this is the case, many owners are having a hard time keeping up with their devices, even the most tech-savvy ones. Another reason why they can’t keep up is that Apple is releasing new updates continuously, leaving no room for users to adjust to the sudden changes.
If you are one of the iPhone users that are having a hard time adjusting to Apple’s new updates, here’s a quick guide on the latest secret hidden features and tricks on your device.
iPhone’s hidden features and tricks
Your iPhone can show your device’s warranty. The first thing you need to do is to open your gadget’s Settings app. After that, you need to look for the “General” option and choose the “About” section. You need to click the “Warranty” option to see your warranty information for your device.
Notes’ perfect shapes
You can draw perfect shapes in your iPhone’s Notes app. You can also do this anywhere else in the Markup interface that is available since it can morph into a perfect shape. This means you need a visual aid like a circle, draw a wonky version and the iPhone or iPad will fix it right up.
Swiping numbers with Keyboard
Another trick you can do on your smartphone is swipe to numbers with your keyboard. If you press and hold on the number key and then swipe up to type the number that you want, when you release a finger, it will go back to the main keyboard so there’s no need to tap twice to get a number character.
Use your Apple Watch as a Viewfinder
The Camera Remote app on the Apple Watch activates the front or rear camera of your device so you can use your Apple Watch as a handy viewfinder. If you take your watch off and wrap it around your smartphone, you can use the rear camera while also seeing yourself, which is useful for vlogging.
Combining a Shortcut with images
Another trick is to combine images with a shortcut. You can use your smartphone’s app and combine it with images. But, it’s easier to use a simple shortcut. Open Shortcuts and tap “+” to add a new one. Type in “Photos” and choose “Select Photos” for the first action. For the second, search for “Combine” and select “Combine Images.” Change the details to say “Combine Photos” and “In a Grid.” After that, search for “Save” and choose “Save to Photo Album.” You can make it fancier with extra steps, but this is all you need to select a series of photos and have them arranged in a grid formation, with the final result saved to the Photos app. There are also third-party shortcuts that you can use.
