Do you own an iphone but, feel like you are not getting the full use of your device? Do you see other people interacting with their iphones more effectively? If this sounds like you, you can learn about your iphone and different ways to maximize your usage of it, starting today.
A great benefit of having an iPhone is that you do not need to purchase a GPS system. The iPhone contains an accurate GPS system. Since the iPhone’s GPS system already knows current location, simply put in your desired destination, and you will receive concise directions, just as you would with a regular GPS system.
You will want to restart your iphone on a semi-regular basis. Giving it this little reboot from time to time helps to keep all your apps, programs and other functions running smoothly and properly. To do this, just turn off your phone, leave off for 30 seconds or more and then restart the device.
Many iPhone users are often annoyed when the device suggests a word that just doesn’t make sense as they are typing. Don’t try to maneuver your fingers and push the little “x” on the screen; you can touch anywhere on the screen to get rid of the suggestion. This saves time and frustration.
If your iPhone freezes up, and you can’t seem to get it to work, try mashing both the home and the sleep buttons simultaneously. After that, follow the instructions on the screen. This will bring your device back to life, although it will take a few minutes as the iPhone closes down and then comes back on.
Don’t load an excessive number of apps onto your Iphone. There are many well thought out apps that can make your life more pleasant and help you get things done. There are also many apps that are a waste of virtual space and will only need to be deleted later.
You can edit the pictures you take on your iPhone. Go to the picture you want to edit. Once you find the picture, click the Edit button in the top right corner. This will allow you to fix red eye, crop, rotate or auto enhance. After you make your fix, click Save in the top right corner.
Do you have a message that you want to shout out to someone? Here’s how you can turn on Caps Lock on your iPhone. All you have to do is tap the shift key twice. When you’re ready to go back to lowercase letters, double tap the shift key again, and everything will return to normal.
If you don’t have unlimited texting on your phone plan, you need to be careful how many messages you send. Go to Settings and the Message and enable the character count. After about 160 characters in a text message, the message becomes split into two texts. This can help you avoid sending multiple texts by accident.
These suggestions are just the beginning to using your iphone. Try them out, and use those that work best for you. An iphone is an expensive investment, you should get as much use from it as possible. Try these tips and you will begin to grow your knowledge base and enjoy your iphone.
