8 Handy Tips For Using Your iPhone

Apple has been in the mobile phone market for several years, so it should come as no surprise that they have created one of the most popular brands on the planet. The iPhone is Apple's flagship product which can be used to browse, play games, take photos or even use Siri - their virtual assistant designed just for iPhones! So how do you know what to do with all these features available on your phone? Here are seven handy tips for using your iPhone.

8 Handy Tips For Using Your iPhone
  • Use Siri
As mentioned previously, Siri is an excellent way to help you find information on your iPhone quickly and effortlessly. Just say "Hey Siri," followed by any question you may have about something happening at home or work. For example: "Hey Siri, what's the weather like today?" or "Hey Siri, how do I get to the nearest gas station?" You can also ask her to perform specific tasks for you, such as setting the alarm or sending a text message.

  • Take Advantage Of Multitasking Gestures
If you want to quickly and easily navigate between apps on your iPhone, you can switch between apps by just double-tapping the Home button to bring up your open apps, then pressing and holding on an app icon until it wiggles around. In addition, you can now tap another open app's icon to jump over there; no need to close one out first! It also means that if you accidentally press too long and close out of an app, you can quickly get it back.

  • Slide To Answer
Hold the " slide to answer " button down for a few seconds when you receive a phone call and don't have time to answer, hold the "slide to answer" button down for a few seconds. This will send the caller directly to voicemail. Please note that you will not use this feature if your phone is currently on the lock screen. Also, it does require some practice. You may need to try sliding multiple times before the call is sent directly to voicemail without ringing first.

  • Do Not Disturb Mode
The "do not disturb" mode will keep your phone from ringing and vibrating when a call or text comes in. Swipe up from the bottom of your screen to activate this mode and toggle the switch to on. You can also customize what notifications you still want to receive while in this mode.

  • Create A Passcode
It is crucial to create a passcode for your device. Enabling the "touch ID" feature will allow you to unlock your phone with just one touch of your finger, but it requires that you use this option when setting up the iPhone initially (or if you want to turn it off later). It is also a good idea to use a passcode to access your iCloud account.

  • Location Services
When you have location services turned on, your iPhone will track and store the locations of where you have been. This feature can be helpful if you need to find your way back somewhere or want to remember a specific place, but it can also be concerning if you don't want others to know where you have been. So first, go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services to manage your location services. From here, you can choose which apps are allowed to track your location and how often they can do so. You can also turn off location services altogether by sliding the switch to the Off position at the top of the page.

  • Photos And Videos
Your iPhone can take some fantastic photos and videos, but it's important to remember that they take up a lot of storage space. To free up some room on your device, you can delete old photos and videos or move them to iCloud or another cloud-based service. You can also reduce the size of your photos and videos by adjusting their settings in the Photos app. To do this, open the Photos app and tap on Settings > Compress Photos.

  • iCloud Storage
It is essential to know how to clear iCloud storage to keep your device running smoothly. One way to clear iCloud storage is by going into your settings and selecting 'Storage & iCloud Usage. Under this menu, you will see how much storage space you are currently using and how much is being used by iCloud. If you are getting close to the maximum amount of storage you are allowed, you can free up some space by deleting old backups, documents, and photos.

Thanks for reading our tips on how to use your iPhone! These tips might seem obvious to use, but many new iPhone owners don't use them to their full potential. We hope you found this post helpful and that it gave you a few ideas on how to make your iPhone work better for you.
