Did you just drop your brand-new iPhone in the sink or a pond? Don’t worry! Make sure you don’t turn the phone on. Instead, lightly towel dry it as much as you can. Don’t use a blow dryer. Then, put the phone in a small bag filled with white rice and leave it sit overnight. The rice will absorb any water left in it.
If you want to take a picture quickly, double tap on your Home button. Even if the phone is locked this will bring up a little camera icon that will allow you to open the camera. You can then use the Volume Up button on your phone or headphones to snap the picture!
Does your iPhone’s battery drain too quickly? Try turning off the “Setting Time Zone” feature. You can access this by going to settings, then location services, and finally, system services. The, switch the setting from on to off, and chances are that your battery life will see a significant increase.
Did you know that iPhones can take screenshots just like a computer can? In order for you to take a screenshot from your iPhone, hold down your phone’s home button and afterwards press the Sleep button. You’ll then hear a camera click, see a flash, and then a screenshot of your iPhone will be saved in your Camera Roll.
If you need to write an email or document in all caps on the iPhone, simply tap the shift key twice to lock it. This is similar to how you would set the caps lock on any standard keyboard. You can then write your document in all caps easily without having to continuously tap the shift key over and over again.
Make sure that you update your iPhone whenever this becomes available, as this can give you the ability to gain new functions that are created by Apple. Typically, you will find a notification under the settings tab, which will prompt you to update your entire phone to get these different abilities.
To increase your storage space on your iPhone, take advantage of iCloud. This will only take you a few minutes to set up, and it can triple or quadruple the amount of space that is made available. This is especially useful if you store a lot of photographs or a big music library on your phone.
To save battery life on your iPhone, use this trick. When unlocking your phone, cover the area just above the earpiece. This will block the sensor that detects how bright the room is, which tricks the phone into believing your are in a darker space. When the screen powers on, it will be less bright, using less power.
In the event that your iPhone freezes and it is not revived when you press the Sleep/Wake button, you can do a hard reset to get things back in order. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home key at the same time. The phone should shutdown and reboot signaling that everything is working fine once again.
Lock your screen, if you need to. If your iphone seems to have trouble determining whether it’s up or down, try locking your screen. The constant shift between portrait and landscape can get rather frustrating. By going into your settings or, sometimes, by just checking the bottom of your screen, you can lock your phone’s screen to one or the other.
If you use certain words and terms a lot that take up a lot of time to type, the best thing to do would be to add shortcuts. You can do this in the Settings section of your phone. For example, “SYL” can be used for “see you later.” Typing those three letters will prompt the phone to type out the entire phrase.
Many people want to know how to save images using Safari and their mail. All you have to do is touch the image in Safari or mail and then hold it. An action sheet will show itself that enables you to be able to save the image. The image will be available in the library of your photos app.
