YOUR iPhone just got upgraded with some clever new tricks.
The latest iOS 16 update adds a lot of great features – including a long-awaited typo.
TikTok tech expert @kaansanity shared some very clever hacks that you are dying to know.
First, make sure you are using the latest version of iOS.
Go to Settings > General > Software Update on your iPhone to check.
iPhone iOS 16 Trick #1 – Lock Notes with Passcode
You can now easily protect your notes app with a passcode.
This is great as that’s where you might store private information – like birthday gift ideas or a personal diary.
Open Settings and then go to Notes.
From there you can set up a passcode for notes.
It’s also possible to hold your finger on a note in the Notes app and specifically lock a single note.
iPhone iOS 16 Trick #2 – Multiple Stops
You can now add multiple stops while navigating Apple Maps.
It is possible to add as many stops as you like.
This makes it very easy to plan a complicated trip on Apple Maps.
It means it’s now much easier to ditch Google Maps for its Apple rival.
iPhone iOS 16 Trick #3 – Haptic Tap
Finally! It’s possible to get “haptic” feedback when typing on an iPhone keyboard.
That means you’ll feel tiny vibrations as you tap each character.
It’s a trick that’s been available on Android for years.
But the clever feature has finally come to iPhone with the latest iOS 16 update.
Go to Settings > Sound & Haptics, then turn on Haptics for your iPhone keyboard feedback.
