In this rapidly evolving digital age, staying one step ahead is no longer a choice, but a necessity. Your iPhone is more than just a device; it seamlessly integrates into your daily routine.
Serving as your communication hub, camera, work companion, and entertainment source, it becomes an indispensable part of your life. As we embark on the exciting journey of 2024, let’s uncover the groundbreaking features that will shape the year ahead, and revolutionize how we experience the iPhone. We have prepared for you tips for staying ahead in mobile technology.
iPhone Tips to Save Time
iOS 16 introduces a fantastic feature that allows you to modify or completely retract a message after sending it, reducing those dreaded “uh oh” moments.
Edit, Unsend messages
To give it a try, open Messages and compose your message as you normally would. Send it by tapping the send button. Then, long-press on the sent message, and a menu will appear with options such as Edit and Undo Send. Choose the desired option based on your needs at that moment.
It’s important to note that this feature only works if the recipient is also using iOS 16; otherwise, they will still receive the original message.
Do Not Disturb
You can now avoid such humiliation with this cool iPhone feature. It allows you to set up your device to automatically activate “Do Not Disturb” as soon as you step inside your school or workplace.
Here’s how to do it:
- Open the Shortcuts app.
- Go to Automation.
- Tap the plus (+) button and select Create Personal Automation.
- Choose Arrive.
- Tap “Choose” next to Location.
- Enter the address of your school or workplace, then tap Done.
- Optionally, you can set a specific time range.
- Tap Next and select Add Action.
- Search for “Set Focus” and choose it.
- Tap Next and then Done. Now, whenever you arrive at your school or workplace, your iPhone will automatically activate Do Not Disturb mode.
To keep your iPhone running smoothly and quickly, you need a phone cleaner. It is enough to run the iPhone cleaning app at least every 1-2 weeks to keep the memory clean. You can install CleanUp from the official source and remove temporary data, duplicate photos, and compress videos. Thanks to Smart Search, you can clear your memory with almost no effort.
Add Tools to Your iPhone’s Control Center
The Control Center on your iPhone provides quick access to frequently-used tools. By customizing its contents, you can tailor it to your needs. To access the Control Center, swipe downwards on the right side of your iPhone’s screen.
To modify the tools in your Control Center, navigate to the Settings app. Scroll down and tap on “Control Center.” This will bring up the Control Center menu, showing “Included Controls” at the top and “More Controls” at the bottom. You can add controls by tapping the green plus icon next to the tool’s name. This will allow you to enjoy easy access to a range of useful tools with just a swipe.
Drag the Volume
Instead of repeatedly pressing the volume buttons on your iPhone when adjusting the volume, you can simply press once and then use your finger to control the onscreen volume bar. This method not only saves time but also provides more precise volume control, similar to a long press of the volume bar in the Control Center. It allows you to find your preferred volume effortlessly.
You can effortlessly capture videos on iPhone 11 and later models without switching from the default photo mode. In the Camera app, simply press and hold the shutter button to begin recording and release it to stop. For a continuous recording without holding the button, slide the shutter button to the far right until a target padlock icon appears. Rest your finger on the padlock, and the shutter button will remain in that position as long as you shoot the video. During recording, you can also tap the shutter for still photos. To stop shooting video, tap the record button below the viewfinder.
Take a Screenshot of a Full Web Page
When capturing a screenshot of a web page, you might have noticed that only the visible content gets captured, leaving out the rest. Fortunately, there’s a workaround to save the entire web page effortlessly. Just follow these steps:
- Capture a screenshot of the web page.
- Tap on the small screenshot preview, usually found in the bottom-left corner.
- At the top, you’ll see two options: Screen and Full Page. Tap on Full Page.
- Tap Done, and you’ll find that the complete webpage, not just a cropped portion, is saved to your Photos app.
Copy and Paste Photo Edits
To edit multiple photos similarly or replicate changes made to one photo onto others, the new copy-and-paste edits tools in iOS 16 can be utilized. To start, open an image in the Photos app, tap Edit, and make desired adjustments. After finishing, tap Done and locate the ellipsis (three dots) icon in the upper right corner of the interface.
Next, select Copy Edits from the dropdown menu to copy all the adjustments made to the image onto the clipboard. Then, choose another photo or select multiple photos from your library, access the ellipsis icon again, and tap Paste Edits to apply the exact same adjustments.
Not all the best iPhone features are listed here, as the list goes on. However, they all allow you to use your iPhone more efficiently and save time on daily tasks. Become a master at using your iPhone to make the most of your time.
