I’m all about learning new tricks that I never knew my iPhone could do.
I run all updates right away and embrace the change!
I’m always MINDBLOWN when I learn about features like this so wanted to share the lastest tips I’ve learned…
Delete last digit in calculator
Instead of erasing all the numbers and starting over again, all you have to do is simply swipe your finger across the numbers and the last entered digit will be deleted.
Sign documents on the go
For anyone who needs to sign a document, you can simply do it straight from your phone without having to download and scan.
Just preview the attachment via email, tap the toolbox icon in the top right corner and then tap the signature button in the ‘markup preview’, located bottom corner.
Sign the document with your finger on the screen and then tap ‘Done’. You can move the signature wherever you want on the document, and you can add text, highlights or even draw on it.
Instead of using the Calculator app, simply swipe down on your screen to open Spotlight and type in the math problem right there.
Say goodbye to pop-ups
The iPhone allows you to disable in-app pop-ups for ratings and reviews and frustrating feedback requests. Just go to Settings, iTunes and App Store, turn off In-App Ratings and Reviews – ta-da!
Built-in tape measure
You can measure things in real life using your iPhone. The Measure app uses augmented reality to act as a tape measure or ruler to measure everyday objects.
Once you access the app, it will ask you to move your phone around the object so it can analyze the area.
Line the white dot up with a corner on the item you want to measure. Press the white button with the sign in the middle of it and trace the edge of the line you want to measure.
Use the space bar on the keyboard to move the cursor while typing
When you make a typo while texting, sometimes it’s impossible to tap on the right spot to place the typing cursor with your finger.
Instead of dragging the cursor over the text, you can use the keyboard by sliding your finger left and right on the space bar as a track pad to edit.
Set a timer to automatically stop playing music while you fall asleep
If you like to listen to something before bedtime, you can set a timer on your iPhone to automatically stop playing music or podcast while you fall asleep.
The feature can be found in the Clock app under ‘Timer’. So simply set a timer, press on ‘When Timer Ends’, scroll to the bottom of the options, and select ‘Stop Playing’.
Fix autocorrect texts
If there’s a common word or phrase you use but your iPhone keeps autocorrecting, just add it to the Dictionary.
Go to Settings, General, Keyboard and then ‘Text Replacement’. Next, tap the plus sign in the top right corner and enter in the word you want saved.
