Nearly everyone has an iPhone now, well it may seem that way, but many aren’t aware of how to use most of its functions. If you think your iPhone could or should do more for you, you’re definitely not alone. This article is filled with advice and tips to help you get everything out of your iPhone.
When surfing the web on the iPhone, you do not need to add “.com” to web addresses. All you need is the main portion of the address typed in and the browser should connect you with the proper site. This is a simple little trick that saves you plenty of time while using your iPhone.
You can increase your messaging speed using this method. Tapping away from the suggestion box can cancel this entirely. The little “X” does not have to be hit!
Does your message require an accent or an umlaut over a letter? This is actually quite simple to accomplish. Press the button of the letter you want to use and hold it down. A box will appear with some extra keys. Now you can include special characters any time you wish!
When your phone is locked, you will still see incoming messages. It may be a feature you like or dislike. If you find it annoying, you can disable this feature easily. Go into the Settings area, and then choose the Notifications section, followed by the Messages area. You can then disable the Show Preview feature.
Set your own AutoText phrases and words to make messaging faster. You should use this feature for phrases you use all the time, such as ‘where are you’ or for signing your emails. You’ll find the necessary settings lurking in the iPhone settings’ “Keyboard” section.
If you’ve just dropped you phone in water, make sure you don’t turn it on. Try to dry the casing as much as possible, and allow the internal parts to dry overnight. If you try and turn it on while it’s wet, you risk short circuiting the phone and ruining it.
Here’s a tip for saving time when it comes to your iPhone’s suggested words function. If you are typing up an email or note, and are tired of the phone giving you suggestions, just tap anywhere on your screen to kill the suggestion box. This will prevent you from tapping the “x” all the time.
Most people know that you can set a reminder for a specific time using the iPhone, such as “Dentist at 4:30.” What you may not know is that location-based options are available as well. You can have the phone remind you to stop at the store when you leave work, for example. No matter what you need to remember, the iPhone can help.
iPhones are more expensive than other phones, but they can do just as much as your computer can. Once you are an iPhone owner, you know how amazing it is. Hopefully, with the help of this article, you are now able to get even more use and better results from your iPhone.
