The Secret World Of The IPhone: What You’ve Been Missing

Some consider the iPhone as the best invention since the electric light. But, what’s so special about the iPhone? The below article will inform you of this answer and will provide you some tips that you’ve never heard of, even if you own an iPhone.

You can turn your favorite website in an app. First, navigate to the web page. Once you are on the site, tap your phone’s “Go” button. This will give you the option to add this site to your home screen. Once it appears on the home page, give it a personalized name.

Regularly update the firmware of your iPhone. Doing so extends the life of your battery and makes your iPhone efficient and functional. Firmware can be updated by connecting the phone to your computer after you’ve uploaded iTunes. ICloud can connect to an Apple computer if you have one.

You can mark emails as unread; however, the option is not visible on the main, mail screen. Find ‘Details’ on your iPhone menu and click on the unread tag for email. When you return to your email it will be marked as unread.

You should be using your iPhone to share and send photos to your family and friends. Two primary methods exist in which you can accomplish this. First, you can save the image and then add it as an attachment to an email, or you can go to your Facebook application and upload it there for everyone to see.

Among the many useful features that come loaded onto your iPhone is a fairly robust dictionary incorporated right into the iOS itself. Almost every app on your iPhone can reference it. Tap then hold on a word; when the options come up, choose Define.

Make sure you are mindful about the apps you allow onto your phone. There are so many options out there when it comes to the apps, between the free and pay versions. However, there are a few to look out for that could get through the approval process, so be wary of any that get very bad reviews.

If you misplace your iPhone, there is an app that can help you find it called Find My iPhone. To use this service, you must first access the app and sign up. You can have the phone ring for you if you have it lost in the sofa cushions. You can also lock or delete any data if you are afraid your phone may have been stolen.

If you are making a phone call, but wish to disguise your telephone number, this can be accomplished with the iPhone. In the Settings menu, click Phone and then change the Show Caller ID setting to OFF. That area of settings is also useful if you need to access your own phone number.

If you want to browse the web with ease on the iPhone, try a larger keyboard. And it doesn’t have to be an external keyboard. Simply turn your iPhone sideways and press the Safari address bar! This will give you access to a larger keyboard to help make your typing a breeze.

Should a freeze occur with your iPhone, and it will not wake with a button push, a hard reset is probably needed. Press and hold that button while you hold down the Home key simultaneously. This will restart your phone, which will bring up the Apple logo in white.

Do you want to use a shortcut to get to the camera option on your iPhone? Luckily, there is a shortcut that will help to speed things up. Clicking on the home button two times will get you to this area. You should see a small camera icon near the bottom of the screen. Hitting it will instantly throw your iPhone into camera mode.

A great tip if you own an iPhone is to start using Facebook on it. Not everyone knows yet that Facebook and other social networks are accessible from the iPhone.

Are you wanting to back up contacts on your iPhone? This is easily done with an app known as iDrive Lite, which permits contact sharing and restoration. As long as your iPhone is running at least the 2.0 OS, you can enjoy this service free of charge.

Assign a different name for email accounts if you want to use them all on the iPhone. If you have three accounts and each one is labelled “Bill’s Email”, it becomes difficult to quickly locate the information you need. By uniquely naming email accounts, they are easier to navigate.

When you aren’t using your iPhone, keep the screen off or very dim. The energy expended by the back-light will drain your phone’s battery. Having a darker screen will make your battery last longer.

Save time when typing on an iPhone. Go to your settings and make new keyboard shortcuts. Word groups that you use often can be programmed into the phone for future usage. Since the phrases are programmed, you won’t need to type them every single time.

You can even take pictures with the headphone cord. Start by framing the photo you want. When the picture is ready to go, engage the cord’s button. This will take the photograph. Saving the picture in your iPhone is done just like you do with any other picture.

You can take screenshots with your iPhone all the time. Touch and hold down the home and power buttons at the same time to acheive this. (Do this briefly, since pressing down for extended periods can cause damage.) You will have a successful screenshot that is automatically transmitted to your Images app.

You only need one hand to take a picture with your iPhone. Frame the picture you want to take and push the raise volume button. You do not sacrifice quality by taking pictures this way.

As you already probably know, almost everyone owns an iPhone today. If all the pomp and circumstance surrounding the iPhone had you previously confused, you know now what it’s for and why you should own one too!
