Tips & Tricks

Are you looking for tips and tricks for iPhone units? There are several you might not be aware of including the following ones:

  1. Use the timer to stop the music

If you want to turn off the music when you’re going to sleep, for example, you can use the timer to turn off the music. For example, you might want the music to be switched off 30 minutes later if you’re planning to go to sleep soon.

This is a great feature for various reasons. For example, it gives you the ability to listen to music as you fall asleep. On the other hand, it also allows you to save the phone’s battery life, which is important if you want to have enough juice during the next day before needing to charge the iPhone.

  1. Set alpha-numeric passcode

This will help you to create a stronger password and also add another layer of protection. You can do that by going to Settings-General-Passcode Lock. There’s a lot of debate about how to create a stronger passcode. However, some of the general guidelines are to use 16+ characters. It’s also advisable to use a mix of letters, numbers, and symbols.

Taking this basic step is one of the best ways to boost your iPhone’s security. On the other hand, if you just have a basic password it will be easier for someone to guess. That’s especially true if they already have some basic information about you. In that case, it would be quite easy for them to figure out your password.

  1. Save your phone battery life

When the iPhone’s battery life is low, switching off certain settings can help the battery to last longer. You can still get texts and calls and go online using the EDGE connection.

  1. Find word/phrase in a web page

When you’re searching for a word/phrase in a page on the web it’s important to know how to do it. In safari input the word using the search bar located on the top-right. Then tap Search. When you’re on the results page, first scroll all the way down. You’ll then see the number of words that were found on the various web pages. Tap on the word/phrase searched.

  1. Delete the last digit in the Calculator App

Let’s say that you’re using the Calculator app and you entered the wrong digit. You can then just swipe left/right of the number in order to remove the last digit. You can keep doing this step until the number drops to zero.

This is a great feature if you want to remove numbers from the Calculator mode faster. When you’re doing a lot of number crunching, for example, you’ll likely want to do the calculations as fast as possible. There are various ways to save time and one way is to use the swipe.

  1. Switch the shooting directions in the Panorama mode

Tap the arrow in your phone’s Panorama mode in order to switch the camera’s shooting direction. That will allow you to take panoramic photos from left-right or right-left. This is definitely a plus if you’re a fan of taking photos.
