6 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOUR IPHONE COULD DO
6. Use Camera Flash as Flashlight
We are sure a lot of people are aware of this feature, but at the same time, there are plenty of people who are not, which is why we decided to include this on the list. You can do this by opening up the iPhone control center, and then tapping the button on the bottom left side of your screen to turn the camera flash on. You can now use it as a flashlight and change back to the default settings when you are done.
5. Make TouchID Work Faster
There have been some complaints about the TouchID on the phone not responding fast enough, and we have a solution to the problem. The best way to speed up TouchID on your iPhone is by saving the print of the finger that you use the most to access the phone multiple times. By saving it as a different print, you reduce the time it takes TouchID to process your fingerprint when you want to access your phone.
This feature works better when you can see what you are doing, which means that you will have a tough time if you try to do it with an iPhone that has a cracked screen.
4. Take Pictures with Your Headphones
This is a pretty neat feature because it allows you to take pictures by simply using the volume buttons on your headset when you are in camera mode.
3. Make Your Camera Blink When You Have New Messages
This is a very useful feature which allows your phone to notify you of a message with the blink of your camera flashlight. You can turn this feature on by going to your general settings, going to accessibility, and then scrolling down to LED Flash for Alerts, and turning it on. Just make sure you turn it back off when you’re in a movie theater or trying to sleep.
2. Easy Access to the Top of the Display Screen
When you try to access the top of the screen on your iPhone, you usually need one hand to hold the phone, and another to scroll down on the screen. There is an easier way to do that, all you have to do is double touch the home button twice, and the screen will briefly shift downward, allowing you to access the top of the screen pretty easily.
1. Charge Your Phone Faster
Okay, this is technically not a feature, but it is still very useful information. It is no secret that the battery life of the iPhone isn’t very long, and using the charger that comes with the phone takes some time. Instead of using the adapter, switch to an iPad charger, because they charge the iPhone faster, so you don’t have to wait too long before it’s fully charged.
