YOUR iPhone has a great smart feature for those who often miss notifications.
So if you’re a serial text junkie, you’ll probably want to find out.
Apple notifications can be easily missed, especially since many of us have sound and vibration turned off.
But there’s another option deep in iPhone settings to help you out.
This feature works by making your iPhone’s flashlight blink when you receive a notification.
It’s only a brief flash, so it won’t be too annoying.
But it means you’re much less likely to miss notifications on your iPhone.
It’s not very useful if your iPhone is in your pocket, but if it’s on a table or upside down, you’ll easily notice a notification.
It is important that you can keep your iPhone face down.
So if you’re expecting a private message, you can be alerted to one without disclosing the content – or possibly who -.
To enable this feature, you need to go to Settings.
Then scroll down to Accessibility – it’s really designed for people who might struggle with the usual notification system.
Now go to Visual and then look for LED Flash for Alerts.
Set the switch to the On position and you’re done.
You will now get a quick flash when you receive a notification.
And if you don’t like the new system, you can turn it off at any time.
Of course, that’s not the only texting trick on the iPhone.
Edit your above message Iphone much harder than any right – but this easy trick turns your phone’s keyboard into a laptop-style trackpad with a pointer that you can move by tapping the screen.
With it, you will be able to precisely go back and forth between each character in the text without having to press hard on the screen.
Just hold down the spacebar once you’ve entered some text and the keyboard will turn into a track-pad.
You can then use this virtual track-pad to move your cursor much easier.
Add punctuation faster
Exploiting all stops may not seem like a burden, but it does slow you down.
That’s why Apple has integrated a cheeky keyboard shortcut into iOS to make ending sentences easier.
If you tap the spacebar twice after a word, the first space will turn into a full space.
That way, you can continue typing using only the letters and spacebar without having to bring your hand down to stop completely.
Unlock the back end of the site
If you’re trying to enter a web link, it might be annoying to click .org or .edu.
A better solution is to long press the entire breakpoint, this will bring up shortcuts for many popular web page backends.
This will make it easier to quickly write a website address.
