Secret iPhone Features Secret iPhone Features

No one can deny that there are loads of things you can do with your iPhone, but we'd like to list some other things, which you either haven't faced or haven't used yet, especially with all the additions in iOS 5. To cut a long story short, let's start.

Camera & Pictures

Text and Email Functions

We all need to type a great number of things on our iPhones. So let's try to make our life a lil bit easier using some tips.

4. Text expansion


Aren't you bored with typing the same phrases a hundred times a day? We have a solution: go to Settings > General > Keyboard and scroll down just a bit looking for Shortcuts. Then enter the phrase you want and assign a shortcut, and the next time you type that shortcut the phrase will appear. In my view, this feature enables you to save a lot of your time and effort.

5. Showing emotions

When you boil with rage and want the person you are texting to get your point, turn on caps lock by double tapping the shift key. I can bet that your 'hidden' message will come through.


6. Private browsing

Want to make sure that your data aren't getting sent out to the Internet via Safari? There's an easy way to fix that: Go to Settings > Safari and then click the tab for Private Browsing.

7. Save an image

If you want to save an image from a website as a wallpaper or an icon, just hold down your finger on the picture for a second or two. Once it's saved it's in your Photo Library, ready for whatever you want to use it for.


8. Automatic downloads

If you have a great variety of iOS devices or you buy things online, it would be a great idea to keep all this staff in sync. To do that, you can use Automatic Downloads of your music, apps and books. To get there, go to Settings > Store and choose whichever of these three you want. Just be in the know!

9. Change Your iCloud Storage Size


You can easily increase the size of the iCloud storage. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup > Buy More Storage and select what level you want to use. You can also downgrade sizing if you think you have too much, too.

10. When everything seems to go wrong

Your iPhone is not willing to work, the apps hang, and you are about to throw the phone out of the window. Wait! Try a hard reset. It will shut the iPhone off completely and then restart it. To do this, hold down the lock and home buttons simultaneously for at least 5 seconds, or until the Apple logo shows up. When it boots back up, it should be ready to work.

Here you go, these are the features that we hope will be useful to you. Get the most from your iPhone!
