Apple has already made its mark in the smartphone market in 2014 with the release of both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The company is heavily in news and the new handsets now lined up to compete against few of the most potent names in the market.
Apart from the larger iPhone 6 Plus, the iPhone 6 adheres to the regular iPhone releases from Apple. The iPhone 6 sports a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus goes full "phablet" with a 5.5-inch display. Compared to earlier iPhones, both of the new models boast thinner bodies, ship with faster A8 processors, offer slightly improved cameras and more.
But while those are the basic details of the handset, there are few tips and tricks that you could always look to employ if you already are a proud owner of the handset. Here are the 5 most useful tips and tricks of the new iPhone.
Charging the iPhone 6 Faster
Did you know that you can charge your iPhone 6 faster with an iPad charger without even damaging the battery? Well, it has indeed been found out that both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus can charge faster with a 2.1A power supply, even though both models ship with a 1A supply. This means your iPad charger should help you out at times when you forget your regular charger.
Stop Battery Drainage
One of iOS8's best features speak about the ability to keep a track on the apps that are draining your battery. With the new changes in place, you can now see a full list of apps that are eating the most amount of battery power. Just head over to General -- Usage -- Battery Usage to find out the cause of drainage.
Share Location with Friends
The iPhone 6 via its iOS 8.1 platform can help you easily share your location with friends. To do that, in the conversation thread, click on ‘details' in the top right-hand corner and select ‘send my location.' On doing that, your exact coordinates will be sent immediately.
Enable Do Not Disturb
Tired of all those irritating alerts for almost everything? Well, you could mute alerts for text messages from specific people by selecting the ‘do not disturb' option in the details menu in a message. This means that if you're expecting texts from one person, you can avoid that while also keeping your phone from constantly going off.
Reply to Text Without Leaving App
With the iOS 8.1, Apple has made notifications more interactive than ever before. This means you need not to leave the app you're using to respond to a message. On the contrary, just pull the notification down from the top of the screen and type your response in the small text box that will be provided.
