Apple’s iOS has come a long way since its humble beginnings as iPhoneOS, and all of the finest iPhone models have expanded on the operating system’s initial promise. Steve Jobs proved the iPhone’s power with a massive on-stage Starbucks order in 2007, and the platform has grown yearly, with each update adding features. After the first iteration of the iPhone, multitasking, the alert and Regulate Center, and the App Store were all added. However, the rapid pace of development can make it difficult to keep up with new features.
Following are hidden tricks that most people don’t use:
To select the text, use a cursor:
Texting has become a lifestyle, but it is still surprisingly inconvenient, even in the best circumstances. This tip is for people, who have added an errand word by autocorrect and not noticed it until a few hundred words were written more.
- Place your finger or finger at the bottom of the screen, beneath the Keyboard.
- This will turn the Keyboard into a touchpad until users raise one’s finger or thumb.
Make text snippets:
Text snippets are great shortcut keys for copying in pre-registered phrases. For instance, if you’re communicating with a client, such as through iMessage, you might want to send a pre-written response. In addition, you can use text replacement to create a wall of text posted anytime you type a word.
- Open the setting, go for the General option, and then look for Keyboard.
- Select Text Replacement to generate new replacements and the words that will trigger them.

The scientific calculator is activated by turning one’s iPhone to the side while the calculator app is open. This includes brackets, real numbers, cos/sin/tan alternatives, and the ever-useful command, among other things.

It’s ideal for animals and hyperactive toddlers, allowing you to go back and select the best photos after the event. It’s also simple to get to. When you’re in the Camera app, slide the Shutter to the left, the only one you use to snap photographs.
Scan documents with a camera:
The camera on your iPhone can function as a very efficient document scanner. Still, while Live Text allows you to extract information from images, it is possible to digitize an entire document. You might not have noticed how to because it’s buried inside the Notes app.
- To scan documents, open Notes, then swipe the camera icon.
- The highlighted document will get saved automatically. You can also take a scan manually by pressing the shutter button.
As a notification, use your camera’s flash:
One more camera trick which is little tricky. You can set your iPhone’s camera flash to off when user receive messages, supplying a more visual indication somebody is calling or sending messages.
