17 Hacks Apple Doesn’t Want You To Know About Your iPhone


Love them or hate them, you've likely had an iPhone at some point -- and if not, someone you know has one. Probably a lot of someones. And it really isn't a major surprise, what with all they are capable of handling in our day-to-day lives. Phone, email, texting, tweeting, surfing, banking, planning, photography, music...there is so much available out of the box that many of the hidden features are never discovered by most users.

We've compiled a list of what we think are the most handy tips and tricks to get even more out of your iPhone -- and some of them may actually astonish you. Either because you didn't know you could be doing things much more easily than you do now, or that you didn't know your phone was paying that much attention to you. I honestly didn't know #17 was a thing. I was shocked.

1. Putting Your iPhone In Airplane Mode Will Charge The Battery Considerably More Quickly. Just Be Warned That While This Recharge Sprint Is Active, You Will Not Be Able To Make Or Receive Calls Or Texts.


3. Might Sound Too Good To Be True, But Your iPhone Is Basically An Etch-a-Sketch. If You Mess Up A Text, Email, Or While Editing A Photo, Just Shake It Out And Start Again.
4. Don't Want To Open Twitter To See What Your Favorite Tweeter Is Up To? No Problem. Just Ask Siri "What's Diply Saying?" And She'll Show You A List Of Our Most Recent Tweets.
5. You Can Swipe In Your Text Messages To View Timestamps



6. You Can Control The Scrubbing Speed Of Audio/Video By Moving Your Thumb Down While Scrolling, For More Precise Tuning And Quicker Searching.

7. Add Web Suffixes Like ".com" By Simply Holding The "." Key While Typing In A URL In Your Browser.

8. Your iPhone Can Double As A Level To Help You Hang The Perfect Picture. Just Open The Compass App And Swipe To The Right - BAM! Level Up!

9. By Holding Down The Capture Button In The Camera App, Your Phone Will Take A Series Of Shots So You Can Get The Perfect Picture.

10. While We're Talking About The Camera, You Can Use Your Volume Buttons To Take Pictures Whilst In The App.

11. Oh And Another Thing, You Can Turn Off That Annoying Autofocus By Holding Down On The Screen In Camera Mode Until You See AE/AF LOCK Display In Yellow. This Is Especially Useful When Shooting Panoramic Or Video Footage. 

12. Create A More Complex Password As Opposed To Just The Four-Digit Pin. Navigate To Settings > General > Passcode Lock. Turn Off Simple Passcode. A Keyboard Will Prompt You For Your New Password And Will Do So When Unlocking Your Phone.

13. Instead Of Switching To The Numerical Keypad, Just Hold The 123 Button And Slide To The Numbers You Want. The Keypad Will Return Immediately And You Can Keep Typing.

14. Like Browsing On Your Phone At Night, But Don't Want to Keep Anyone Else Awake? We've Got You Covered. Invert The Display Colors By Going To Settings > General > Accessibility And Turning On Invert Colors. Not Only Will It Cause Less Eye Strain, It's Kind Of Cool To Look At.

15. Guided Access Is A Very Useful Feature, Especially When Letting Children Play With Your Phone. Guided Access Keeps Users From Clicking Or Tapping Somewhere They Aren't Meant To Be (Like Making In-App Purchases). Just Go To Settings > General > Accessibility > Turn On Guided Access.

16. You Can Use Your iPhone Or iPad As A Personal Laptop By Pairing It With Any Bluetooth Keyboard. This Could Be A Lifesaver For Students Or Traveling Business People.

17. And What May Be The Creepiest Thing Your Phone Does? Your Phone Will Figure Out Where You Live, Work, And Frequently Visit And Be Prepared To Share That With Anyone. Go To Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services And Look At Frequent Locations. Spooky!
