Being an iPhone user can be a sweet thing as you figure out how things work but somethings, you may miss all the little tricks. Here is a list of seven tricks you may or may not know about:
How to Reopen Last Closed Safari Tab – launch the Safari app and press on (long press) the “+” button at the bottom of the display. This will allow you to reopen tabs that you’ve recently closed.
How to Move Multiple Apps – Many people find it difficult to move multiple apps same time. When you’re moving apps on your Home screen, you long press on one app, drag it away a bit and then tap others while you still hold the first app. This will enable you to group them all up and move them together.
How to Set a Music Timer – This trick is meant for those who love to listen to music when falling asleep and want a way to turn it off after a set time. Navigate to the Clock app, choose “Timer,” scroll to the end, and then select “Stop Playing” as an option. That’ll stop your music when the timer runs out.
Using 3D Touch for Folder Notifications – Have you grouped a bunch of apps in folders? If one of your app folders has a little red badge, 3D pressing on the folder will let you to see which app has a pending notification at a glance.
Getting Siri Song History – In the iTunes Store app, this trick allows you to find a list of all the songs you’ve ever asked faithful Siri to identify. To do this, simply tap on the three line icon at the top of the iTunes Store display and then choose “Siri.”
Simple Settings Access – If you are in an app like Messages or Photos and you want to get to the Settings of the app very quickly, just say “Settings” to Siri and it will open right up.
Passcode Lock Apps – This trick uses the screentime workaround since Apple doesn’t let you passcode individual apps. Navigate to the Screen Time section of the Settings app and enable it then set a passcode.
Choose “App Limits,” and set a 1 minute timer on “All Apps & Categories.” Next, go to “Always Allowed,” and add apps you DON’T want to lock. This will prompt the rest to require a Screen Time passcode whenever anyone wants to access it.
That is all we have for now. Do stick around as we will add more soon. Also, let me know what you think about the tips.
