People never get bored with their smartphones, especially, those who own Apple's iPhone. The iPhone stood firm against the strong competition given by Google's Android handsets, which is actually quite responsible for the fall of Nokia from the mobile phone market.
We use our iPhones almost daily - but there are still a couple of things it can do that you probably didn't know about.
Down below is a list of 10 exceptional things you didn't know your iPhone can do.
Respond to texts while you’re in an app
While you're in an app, you can swipe down from the top and access the notification drawer to answer a text the same way you would on the lock screen.
Mute Text Messages
If you have the iPhone, you can mute text message notifications for a list of conversations. All you need to go to messaging thread and turn on the "Do Not Disturb."
Use Siri hands-free
You can use Siri without need to hold down the Home button to launch Apple's personal assistant software. Just head over to Settings>General>Siri and turn on Enable Hey Siri.
Control Your iPhone by Moving Your Head
Head over to Settings>General>Accessibility and then scroll down to the Interaction subhead and tap "Switch Control." Tap "Switches" and "Add New Switch." Select "Camera" and choose "Left Head Movement" or "Right Head Movement."
Turn on “LED Flash for Alerts”
You can turn on "LED Flash for Alerts" that will make your camera flash emit light whenever you receive an alert. Head over to Settings > General > Accessibility, then scroll down and turn on "LED Flash for Alerts."
Use Volume Rocker To Take Photos
When the camera app is open, you can use the volume up and down buttons to take photos!
How to Take Screenshots using the iPhone
You can take a screenshot by holding down the power and home button at the same time.
Automatically turn off your music with the timer
You can use the timer to automatically turn your music off so that it doesn't play all night. In the timer app, select "When Timer Ends," then scroll down and select "Stop Playing." The Timer will automatically turn off your music after whatever length of time you set.
Take multiple photo bursts all at once
If you hold down the capture button, your iPhone will take a series of rapid shots, or bursts, in quick succession. This is especially useful if you're photographing a moving subject.
Lock autofocus and exposure while taking a picture
1. Launch the Camera app.
2. Press and hold on your focal point until you see an AE/AF Lock banner appear at the top of the screen.
3. Remove your finger from the screen and tap the shutter button when you're ready to take your photo.
4. Unlock the focus and exposure again at any time by tapping anywhere on the screen.
5. Mission Accomplished!
