You spend, like, half of your life on that thing.http://bzfd.it/19fgqsx

 

 

1. On the iPad: Make typing more comfortable by switching your keyboard to thumb mode.

 

On the iPad: Make typing more comfortable by switching your keyboard to thumb mode.

 

Simply swipe two fingers across the keyboard. This displays a different keyboard, which allows you to type with your thumbs the same way you type on your iPhone.

***Alternatively, you can press the “dock and merge” button in the bottom righthand corner of the keyboard and drag up. The keyboard will turn into thumb mode, and you can also drag it wherever you want.

2. If you put your phone on airplane mode, it will charge twice as fast.

3. Make use of offline Google Maps when traveling abroad.

 

Make use of offline Google Maps when traveling abroad.

Peggy Wang

While you’ve still got internet access, go to the area you want to save. In the search bar, type “ok maps” and the map will be cached for offline use.

This is also super useful for iPads that are only Wi-Fi enabled.

4. In the Calculator app, remove an accidental extra zero by swiping left to right.

 

In the Calculator app, remove an accidental extra zero by swiping left to right.

If you’re, say, calculating a bunch of expenses for your taxes, you don’t have to start over if you accidentally type in extra numbers.

5. Turn on Guided Access while a child is playing with your phone or iPad.

 

Turn on Guided Access while a child is playing with your phone or iPad.

Guided Access, once turned on, keeps users from errantly clicking or tapping within an app and ending up someplace they’re not supposed to be, or deleting something accidentally.

First, you need to go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Guided Access and turn it on. You’ll also want to turn on the Accessibility Shortcut.

Triple-click the home button in whichever app you want to turn it on for. From here, you can select any buttons that you don’t want clicked. Or you can also disable the home button while keeping the touchscreen on.

 

6. Take selfies using the remote on your earbuds.

 

Take selfies using the remote on your earbuds.

Just click the volume + button on the remote on your Apple or Apple-compatible earbuds while in camera mode to click and shoot, or the middle button (play/pause) while in video mode.

No more selfie arm!

7. Quickly get to the Camera app without having to unlock your phone.

 

Quickly get to the Camera app without having to unlock your phone.

Swipe up on the little camera icon in the bottom right corner of your home screen. The Camera app will open, bypassing the unlock screen.

This is especially handy when something incredibly photo-worthy is happening and you need to access your camera ASAP. It’s also great when handing your phone to others for taking photos — they won’t need to enter in your password.

8. You can use ANY bluetooth keyboard with your iPhone or iPad.

 

You can use ANY bluetooth keyboard with your iPhone or iPad.

It turns basically any iPhone or iPad into a portable laptop.

9. There’s a built-in level gauge in the Compass app.

Open up the Compass app and swipe to the left and you’ll be at the level screen. If you need to hang a picture in a pinch, this little hack could come in real handy.

10. Tap the top bar of any app to scroll back up to the top.

 

Tap the top bar of any app to scroll back up to the top.

No more tedious thumb scrolling when you’re way down on the page.

11. Invert your colors for better nighttime browsing.

 

Invert your colors for better nighttime browsing.

Inverting your colors will turn the screen black and the text white for less eye strain.Go to Settings > General > Accessibility. Turn on “Invert Colors.”

12. On the iPad: Did you know that a) you can add more apps to the home row and b) you can add folders to it?

 

On the iPad: Did you know that a) you can add more apps to the home row and b) you can add folders to it?

A lot of people don’t even know how malleable that bottom dock is. You can fit a couple extra apps in there (the default is four, but it fits six) or swap apps in and out. Just click any app and hold until you get the jiggly icons.

And you can move folders into the dock as well. Your most important apps are always just two clicks or fewer away.

13. When ending a sentence, instead of typing a period and then a space, just tap the space bar twice.

 

When ending a sentence, instead of typing a period and then a space, just tap the space bar twice.

Tapping the space bar twice adds a full stop, a space, and capitalizes the next letter. It may not seem like much, but when you’re composing a lengthy message, this little hack will really improve the speed of your typing once it becomes second nature.

14. With the remote of your earbuds, you can go to the next track or the previous track while listening to music or podcasts.

 

With the remote of your earbuds, you can go to the next track or the previous track while listening to music or podcasts.

 

This should work with any Apple-compatible earbuds with a remote.

15. Use this little trick when you want to go back and forth between the alpha and numeric keyboard.

 

Use this little trick when you want to go back and forth between the alpha and numeric keyboard.

Like, maybe you want to type a password that is a mix of letters and numbers. Click the “123” button and slide up to the character you want to input. When you let go, the screen will jump back to the alphabet keyboard.

16. Swipe right to left to banish a banner notification.

Very important to know this when that embarrassing sext shows up suddenly on your screen.

17. In Safari, hold down the period key to quickly add a domain in the search bar.

      Its where there are two possible words, one with the apostrophe and one without that it becomes useful. The example “were” and “we’re” is a good one. “Its” and “it’s” is not so useful, because its usually the second that you want. I have left my phone autoselecting the second form and correting the spelling myself when it’s actually “its” that I need.

      Reply
    • StatingDObvs

      Because of the “almost”, Poo. Look at the examples and notice that every one is a word that is valid without an apostrophe. Those are the ones auto-correct misses. This tip is meant for those.

    Double tap the start button and it will pop up all open apps then just flick them up and they close this will save your battery

    Reply
    • Ridley

      The “start” button you refer to is the “Home” button. This method you write about to save battery is actually a myth.

      The apps that appear when you double click on the home button are the “fast-app switching” multi-tasking mode that iOS implements, but those apps aren’t actually running concurrently. iOS freezes apps that aren’t currently in the foreground. They do have services that can be called, such as notifications and such, but those would also work even if these apps weren’t in the fast app switching user interface.

      Want to test it? Launch the facebook app. Have someone write on your wall, you will get a notification on iOS. Now, double click the home button and swipe up on the app screen that is facebook (iOS 7) to clear it from this view. Now have someone write on your facebook wall again…you still receive a notification, even though the app “isn’t running.”

        I’m not the best at all the tricks & shortcuts, while I did know quite a few of these. Your response makes me wonder. It’s true that Facebook messages pop up whether the app is active or not, but it is set up in my settings to do that. I also have a tracker app that keeps track of how many steps I walk each day, it only works if the app is running, when I swipe it up & remove it, the tracker immediately sends a message that it has been turned off & will have to be turned back on before it will track again. All that said, I don’t think its really a myth.

        • StatingDObvs

          Laurie,
          You’ve missed every point Ridley was making. First, in iOS an app is only running when it’s in the foreground, meaning it’s the app that’s taking up the screen. Next, apps that are loaded but in the background (not taking up your screen) are not running–their code is loaded into memory but not active, thus not using battery. So apps in the background don’t use battery, and unloading them from the background doesn’t save battery life.

          Reply
          • B

            I disagree, whenever I leave Instagram or FB open in the “background” I don’t hear my alarm in the morning due to my phone shutting off in the middle of the night from a drained battery. It has happened to me three times already. I now constantly close all apps throughout the day, and especially before I go to bed.

          • Ali Mae

            It isn’t a myth. The iPhone itself warns that apps with notifications may drain battery life in the menu where you can choose to turn on or off notifications. If an app is on enough to receive notifications, it is on enough to be using battery. And new information is not available through memory. I’d upload a screenshot, but this format won’t let me.

            Okay, so those are programs with notifications, what about ones without? You can test it for yourself. Make sure your camera is not running. Open it and notice how long it takes to load. Now, hit the home button, maybe go to another program, and return to the camera. See how the wait time is shorter? It was still running. Also not a memory thing, as memory would still take a second to load.

          • Mr. Mystery

            I wonder how this might be true as I surf the internet and listen to Pandora at the same time.

      • Xl

        According to ATT the apps are still running. I just got notified (text) I was exceeding their limit for me. When I called them they told me I had a large number of apps running in background.

        Reply
    • Juan Francisco

      So here is the deal guys, ALL applications that have not required some permission from apple for chat, or GPS or call reasons such as whatsapp, Yelp, google maps or facebook. WILL shut down after 10 mins of sitting in the background. If you double tap the home button and shut down those applications manually. 9/10 times these applications won’t upload or download any data. If these apps are facebook or instagram or twitter, you have to manually turn off their cellular data usage to make sure they don’t drain your battery or your monthly GB per month allowance. Neither apple nor either of these apps makes it easy… but if you invest a bit of your time you’ll get it right. Cheers!

    i shut auto correct off because of chaos and the confusion it causes. Then I go to Settings>General>Keyboard>Shortcuts. This is where you tell it to write the word or phrase you always want with a “code” word or abbreviation. i now just correctly spell all contractions and the shortcut feature puts in the apostrophe for me. i love it for my email address too.
    i set it up where i type an uncommon combination of letters (like xyz)and it puts my very long email address in the spot and all i do to use it is tap the space bar

    Does anyone know if there’s a hidden tip calculator anywhere on iOS 7? My very old non-smart phone even had a tip calculator, but as far as I know iPhones have never included one. Very odd oversight, so I’m guessing I’m missing some hidden feature. Sure, I can figure it on my own with the calculator, but when you want to split the tab, etc., a tip calculator would be handy.

      Arna, I had the same problem, my hubs name is Jon, siri kept wanting to make a friend named Jon my husband. took me forever to figure out how to fix that. you do it in contacts. Go to contacts. open yourself, click edit, scroll down and find add related name, select the relationship and then pick their contact.
      ie: select husband, and then click the “i” it will open your contact list, find your husband, click it and he will be entered then you can say to Siri call, text, my husband and she will use the info in your contacts to do so.

    Arna, I had the same problem, my hubs name is Jon, siri kept wanting to make a friend named Jon my husband. took me forever to figure out how to fix that. you do it in contacts. Go to contacts. open yourself, click edit, scroll down and find add related name, select the relationship and then pick their contact.
    ie: select husband, and then click the “i” it will open your contact list, find your husband, click it and he will be entered then you can say to Siri call, text, my husband and she will use the info in your contacts to do so.

    open your own contact in your phone or ipad – click edit, scroll down find add relationship, select the relationship – click the “i” on the right – it will open your contact list – select your spouse’s name. Now you can instruct siri to call, message, facetime your husband. You can also tell siri to remember Jack is my son, Jill is my daughter etc. When you go to your contact card, that info will then be there. Sometimes Siri can’t find the correct contact. In my case my Husband’s name is Jon, Siri doesn’t recognize that spelling and wanted to make a friend named John my husband, took forever to figure out how to do this.

    On the changing screen from day to nite it is better, but it should automatically switch at dark is there a setting time you can put in for it to automatically change with out having to go back in to settings each nite.

    Good tips. I have one to add. I know this works for Ipad(and I believe it would work for Iphone too), but if you want to snap a picture of your screen you can press the access circle button on the front and the top power button at the same time. No matter what you are looking at. It will even snap a pic of your slide to unlock screen or icons screen if that is what it is on.

    Siri NEVER works for me. Whatever I ask for she can’t find. What is she good for? Is there a way to program her for better use?

    Who doesn’t know #15? Some of these are fascinating… and then there is #15, the retarded cousin of all of these cool tricks.

    You only needed one “NOW” in the last sentence. Dropping either one would work. Sorry, I’m a redundancy nazi.

    I just tried trick #5 and when I tried disable it, it froze the picture of the app on the phone and now I can’t unlock the phone because the picture is on top of the keys… I’m not a happy camper! I can’t use the phone! Any suggestions!!!

    Wondering if someone could help me with my Hotmail account on the iPad? A few days ago it stopped accessing the content within the emails, still letting me see who sent them and a bit of the text, but the message was: “”Message has not been downloaded from the server.” Okay, so I tried turning my iPad off and on again. All my messages disappeared. Then, deleted my hotmail account and reinstalled it. Still no messages. However, on my laptop, everything is as it was, still getting and being able to read messages. The question is, how can I get my hotmail back on the iPad. Please, no haters, just an honest question here. Thanks for any help received.

    Unnecessarily inserting the word “like” into a sentence when you’re talking is fashionable, but irritating. And people who don’t talk like that think people who do… sound like airheads. Unnecessarily inserting the word “Like” at the start of a sentence you’re typing as you did in Trick #15 is not a good idea. It’s bad grammar and maybe not your image you want all the world to see.

    No offense, just some advice.
    Thanks, for the smart tricks!
