Uncover the Best-Kept Secrets of Your iPhone: 10 Hidden Features You Never Knew Existed
The iPhone is packed with features that many users may not even be aware of. Here are 10 hidden iPhone features that you probably didn’t know about:
With the release of iOS 14, Apple introduced a new accessibility feature called Back Tap. This allows you to assign an action, such as taking a screenshot or opening an app, to a double or triple tap on the back of your iPhone.
You can set up a Medical ID on your iPhone that can be accessed from the lock screen. This can include important health information, such as allergies, medications, and emergency contacts.
The Magnifier function transforms your iPhone camera into a magnifying glass. To use this feature, navigate to Settings > Accessibility > Magnifier and enable it. You can then triple-click the home button to activate it.
Shake to Undo
If you accidentally delete or modify text, you can shake your iPhone to undo the action. This works in most text input fields, such as messages, emails, and notes.
You can create custom vibrations for specific contacts or alerts. Go to Settings > Sounds & Haptics > Ringtone > Vibration and select “Create New Vibration” to get started.
With Siri Shortcuts, you can automate tasks on your iPhone by creating custom voice commands. For example, you could create a shortcut to turn on your smart lights or send a pre-written text message.
With the built-in Notes app, you can scan documents using your iPhone camera. To do this, open a new note, tap the camera icon, and select “Scan Documents.”
If you find yourself typing the same phrase or sentence frequently, you can create a text replacement shortcut. Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement to set this up.
By pressing and holding the side button and either volume button on your iPhone, you can quickly call emergency services. You can also set up automatic emergency contacts in the Health app.
If you press and hold the space bar on your iPhone keyboard, you can turn it into a trackpad. When altering text, this makes it easy to shift the pointer.
