YOUR iPhone is full of tricks you may not have known about.
Apple buried hidden features in iMessage, Safari, and even the Calculator app.
You could use one iPhone for years and still don’t learn all its secrets.
The video has garnered more than 50,000 likes, so it’s clearly popular.
the first trick has to do with iMessage.
If you get too many notifications in a chat, you can hide notifications.
Just go to the main chat feed, press and hold the chat you want to mute and click Hide Notifications.
the second prank works similarly and uses the same chat pinning method.
This way, you can always lock your favorite conversations at the top of iMessage.
the third prank is a safari hack.
Start typing a web address, then press and hold the dot icon.
This will bring up a range of common domain name finishers like .com or .net.
This is a quick way to complete your web address.
the fourth prank is hidden in Apple’s Calendar app.
If you make a mistake, you don’t have to erase everything and start over.
You can use your finger and swipe to remove individual digits.
the fifth prank uses a little-known Apple app called Measure.
Find it by swiping down from the top of the screen, then search for Measure.
With this app you can measure objects without a tape measure.
It works best on newer iPhone models with depth-sensing sensors.
The app also has a built-in spirit level, making it a DIY dream come true.
And here’s one of us…
Bonus iPhone Trick – Scan ANY text
Your iPhone comes with a handy tool that lets you quickly and instantly load the contents of a menu or newspaper onto your phone.
First, make sure you’re updated to the latest version of iOS – go to Settings > General > Software update to check.
With Live Text, you can point your iPhone camera at a real object and quickly copy and paste text on it to your handset.
It might help you to make notes on a whiteboard at the end of a meeting or class, or to copy a handwritten note of a family recipe.
Grab an item with text that you want to scan and open the Camera app on your iPhone.
Point the camera at the object and then tap the indicator that appears on the bottom right of your display. It looks like lines of text surrounded by a frame.
When you tap on it, the text will pop out on your display and give you the option to copy, select, look up, translate or share.
For example, you can copy and paste it into an email or note, or share it with a friend via WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.
You can also use Live Text on photos that are already in your photo library.
Just open a photo in the Gallery app and tap and hold a section of text in the image to select and highlight it.
