The iPhone is a very sophisticated phone with advanced settings that people tend to have no idea about. These are settings that every iPhone user should bear in mind for an effective use of the phone and for optimum satisfaction from the use of the device.
- ADJUST THE INTENSITY OF THE FLASHLIGHT
Enable a slider that lets you change the brightness of the light. To bring up the control center, swipe up from the bottom of the screen then do a firm 3D touch press on the flashlight icon
- STOP WEB TRACKERS
Through embedded ads, advertisers may track you across multiple websites. The latest version of Safari for IOS 11 lets you prevent this activity, limiting sites ability to monitor your browsing behavior. To enable this feature, open the settings app tap Safari and turn on the prevent cross-site tracking option. You can also block pop-up ads in the menu.
- SORTING THROUGH FILES
In the IOS files app, you can arrange your files in different ways. Simply drag down somewhere on the screen and a menu will appear. It lets you sort files by name, date, size or tags. The same menu also lets you create new folders and switch between list and thumbnail views.
- SECURE YOUR NOTES
Where you don’t want anyone else to be able to access certain information on your iPhone notes app, you may go to settings=>notes=>password. You can set a code or a touch ID lock. Inside the Notes app, you can lock a specific note by dragging it to the left in the list, tap the icon and enter your password.
- MAKE NOTIFICATIONS LESS DISTRACTING
Remove the preview snippets that come with notification. By doing so, open settings and tap notifications, then show previews and finally tap never.
- SENDING MONEY THROUGH MESSAGES
Seeing that Apple has tightly integrated its Apple Pay service into all aspects of IOS, including the messages app, whenever you type an amount with a currency symbol, it will automatically appear underlined. Tap on this underlined number and Apple Pay will send that amount of money from your account to the other participant in your conversation. You also get to double-check and verify the amount before it officially transfers.
- ABANDON WEAK WI-FI NETWORKS
Your iPhone may automatically connect to public WI-FI which may not be as strong as your regular data. The iPhone can automatically let go of such networks when you go to settings=> cellular, and then turn the WI-FI assist toggle switch on.
- IDENTIFY CONTACTS MORE EASILY
This can easily be done by not only setting up a custom ringtone for the contact but also a unique vibration for incoming calls. Just open contacts, tap any person on the list and choose edit.
