YOUR iPhone has an option to put a caller on hold – and you might even be able to play them a crazy tune.
It’s not an obvious trait – but it’s important to learn.
Apple has hidden the tool inside the call display iPhone apartment
The trick was shared by the TikTok creator @applesignwho regularly distributes iPhone hacks for the app.
His video has already received thousands of likes despite being shared less than a day ago.
First, join a call with someone.
And when you’re ready to put the person on hold, long-press the mute button.
Hold the button down until the icon changes to Hold.
Now that person can’t hear you (and you can’t hear them) until you turn off Hold.
The bad news is that you might not get call center music – it depends on your carrier.
Currently, Apple doesn’t give you the option to choose your own melody.
However, some carriers do, so you might find that instead of a muffled beep, you already have a catchy tune.
Try calling a friend and putting them on hold for verification.
And some providers offer music as a premium upgrade for your plan, so it might be worth checking with your network.
Still, it’s possible to keep someone independent of music.
Just one thing…
That’s not the only musical iPhone trick iOS.
There is a handy hack that works with the music identification tool Shazamwhich was actually bought by Apple.
You can add a quick shortcut to Apple Music detection in your control center.
This makes quick access much easier.
All you have to do is go to Settings > Control Center and then add music recognition to the bottom of the list.
If you then swipe into your control center (by swiping down on the top right of the phone) you can access it quickly.
Just tap the Shazam icon – which looks like an S – and you’re gone.
This allows untitled TikTok songs to be quickly identified.
And it can also discover songs that are playing in the real world near you.
