Apple’s iPhone is still one of the most popular smartphones and it currently has over 1 billion active users. People love iPhone because of its user-friendly UI and the overall stability of iOS. Apple took this step further with iOS 15 by introducing a couple of new useful features. In today’s article, we will discuss the 10 awesome tricks that will enhance your overall user experience with your iPhone. Most of these tips are not only for iOS 15 but also for some older iOS versions. So, if you are still on iOS 14 or 13, some of these tips will help you too. Let’s jump into this.
- Clear Wrong Digits in the Calculator App
If you accidentally type the wrong digits in your calculator app, you can erase them by swiping left or right at the top of the screen to delete one digit at a time.
2. Record Videos with a Swipe
There are those times when you want to capture a moment immediately after opening the camera app. But by default, iPhone’s camera app always launches in photo mode. To record videos much faster, simply long-press the shutter button to start recording instantly. If you want to record a longer video, keep holding the shutter button and swipe to the right.
3. Download Large Apps via LTE and 5G
Apple’s default settings want you to download apps larger than 200MB via Wi-Fi. However, if you have enough mobile data you can remove this limitation. To do this, open your settings app >Tap iTunes & App Store > App Downloads and choose the “Always Allow”.
4. Silence Calls From Unknown Contacts
There are those times when you don’t want to pick up calls from strangers. Fortunately, iOS now allows users to do this through the phone app settings. To silence calls from unknown callers, open your settings app, scroll down and tap on Phone, then toggle the “Silence Unknown Callers” button to the right. This will silence calls from all the numbers not saved on your iPhone.
5. Type Faster With Text Replacement
Everyone has those common words and phrases they use while texting friends and family. iOS now allows you to do this much faster using the Text Replacement feature. With this feature, you can simply type four letters such as “HAYD” instead of typing the phrase “How are you doing”. However, you have to first add these abbreviations to your keyboard. To do this, go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement. You can now add abbreviations to all the common phrases you use while typing on your iPhone keyboard.
6. Tracking Your Menstrual Cycle
This is a very handy feature that women can utilize to track essential data about their menstrual cycles. The health app since iOS 13 allows women to log their flow level, and all the symptoms like cramps or headaches. It also helps them predict when their next menstrual cycles will begin and end. To use this feature, open the Health app on your iPhone, tap the search bar at the bottom right of the screen and click Cycle Tracking. You can then input all the required information to get started tracking your menstrual cycles.
7. Copy Text in an Image Using the Live Texts Feature
This feature that Apple introduced in iOS 15 allows users to copy texts in an image. For instance, if there is a certain phone number in an image, you no longer have to type it manually into your dialer. To copy texts in an image, double-tap or long-press the position of the text in the image and tap copy. This text will be copied into your clipboard, so you can paste it into any other app.
8. Use Spotlight Search to do Calculations
This trick allows you to do simple calculations without opening your calculator app. You simply have to open spotlight search by swiping down while on your home screen or lock screen and input the operation you want to execute. Spotlight search will then give the answer right away.
9. Set Timer Faster
If you are one of those people who rely on their timer for workouts or other tasks that require timing, this trick is for you. Here is a faster way of setting a timer without opening the clock app. Open control center by swiping down from the top right corner of your screen (full-screen iPhones) or swiping up from the bottom of your screen (iPhones with home button) and long-press the time icon. You can now slide it up or down to set your desired number of minutes.
10. Add Multiple Faces to Face ID
If you use your iPhone with one of your siblings or friends, iOS now gives you the option to add multiple faces that can be used to unlock the iPhone and any other apps that use Face ID. To add another face, simply open your Settings > Tap Face ID & Passcode > input your passcode > Tap Set Up an Alternate Appearance and Scan the face of the other person you want to add.
