Why You Should Stay Away From The Iphone

The iphone is a very capable and handy device with many different uses. It can be a personal organizer or an entertainment device. Many different methods can be utilized for personalizing your iphone to meet all your needs. These tips will allow you to be the master of your phone.

In order to conserve your battery usage on the iphone, reduce the brightness level. Go to the settings area on your phone and reduce the brightness level. Your battery will last longer using this method, which may make quite the difference in long-term use.

Once you understand how to use the volume buttons to take a picture, try taking a picture with the headphone cord. Steady your hands when snapping the picture, and then touch the cord’s button. You won’t shake the phone and you will have a clear shot.

You can use Siri to set reminders linked to locations. Instead of saying “Siri, remind me to call work at five.” Now, you can simply say “when I arrive home” instead of specifying a time. Then the phone will tell you to call up your work when it detects that you are home. With this feature, you can set reminders based on location, not time.

Make an application from any site you visit regularly. When you are on the site there are a couple of things you have to do. Once you do this, tap the “Go” icon. An option to add the website onto the home screen will appear. Like any other app you create, you can easily rename this link once you have it stored safely on the home screen.

There is a better way to turn off the AutoCorrect feature than hitting the “X” button. Just tap the screen anywhere instead. The suggestion box might be wrong, or you could intentionally have spelled the word that way.

If you want to stay on top of your email, tag your account to your iphone. This helps you instantly receive notifications each tine you get an email in your inbox. You can pick a plethora of email accounts, or pick one to put a tag on.

When attempting to write notes or emails and you don’t want to be bothered by suggestions, you don’t need to tap X to get rid of suggestions. Just tap the screen at any area and the words will be eliminated.

If your iphone is equipped with the Siri app, you may want to rethink using Siri often if you want to protect your privacy. Apple can record and store what you say to Siri. While this does assist the speech recognition function, you should be aware that you might not have total privacy when doing this.

Sleep Button

Press the sleep button if your iphone encounters an issue and press harder to reboot your phone if it is not responsive. You will want to press the home key and the sleep button at the same time. The phone should shutdown and get itself restarted so you can continue using it.

If you prefer hearing clicks every time you hit a key while texting, you can turn that feature on in your phone’s Sounds section. Using different sounds can help you understand when you do type something, and when you don’t.

Choose a ringtone that you love. Don’t stick with the default tone like most people do. Upload a sound byte or favorite song. You will have yourself an attention-getting feature.

If your phone freezes, do not panic. First, try the sleep button to wake it up. The second solution is to press the home button and the sleep/wake button at the same time. That will reset your phone, but then it will power up again in just moments.

You can set up shortcuts to specific words on the iphone to be more efficient when typing. Add a shortcut by going to Settings, then General, Keyboard and add a shortcut. By using acronyms or abbreviations, you can create shortcuts for more common words or phrases you type often. When typing these shortcuts, words and phrases that correspond will come out in their whole form.

One of the great features on the iphone is the comprehensive dictionary that has been preloaded. You can use this tool in pretty much any app. Whenever you’re reading text, you can tap and hold any word that you see. “Define” will be one of the options that comes up on the subsequent menu.

In conclusion, the features an iphone has makes it more desirable than a regular phone. It can do more things that you might not know about. Apply all of the tips that you have read so that you can use your iphone to the fullest potential and personalize it to do what you want.
