Now you can just tap the full-stop button right beside the Space and select from a variety of suffixes possible.

8. Your Phone Is Spying On You!!


Not funny, it’s quite serious. Your phone really is spying on you on its own and does not even let you know about it. It’s keeping an eye in the background on wherever you go and where do you often head towards.

To confirm this, go to Settings>Privacy>Location Services>System Services and then Frequent Locations. Yeah, you see it right. IPhone is keeping a track of you!

7. Your Camera’s Focal Point Can Be Locked


How cool is it for Apple to introduce a focal point in your camera to take professional style pictures, right? But it’s still sad because it does not last forever rather just for a few seconds, after which you have to manually do it every time you need.

This secret allows you to lock your camera’s focal point until you want to stop. Instead of tapping once on the screen, you have to tap is for a little longer, say 3-sec. This trick will get your camera’s focal point locked no matter how many times you twist or shake your phone.

6. A Customized Vibration to Identify the Caller


It could be really annoying and complete wastage of time to check your phone on every ring or vibration just to see if you want to attend this call or not.

There could be customized rings tones to identify the caller but what if your phone is on silent?

Guess what? You can still know who your caller is, whilst in silent mode, without having to take a glimpse of the screen. Just go to Contacts>Edit>Vibration and explore all the options to customize. You’re welcome!

5. Correct Siri’s Pronunciation


Siri can pronounce things wrong too and this could end you up with false information. To correct Siri just tell her straight. Just tell her ‘That’s not how you pronounce XYZ’ and you will see Siri correcting her mistake and never committing it again.

4. Now You Can Close Multi-Apps from Menu in Just a Sec


Everyone can relate to the need of hiding a few pages and apps you have been lurking in secretly.

With this trick you can delete your history from the multitasking menu in just seconds.

Open the multitasking menu, start deleting the pages by dragging them with your three fingers. There you have them all wipe away like it never existed.

3. Set Your Music Off With Timer


Understandably, a lot of us have this habit of sleeping with your music on in your headphones. Some people just can’t go to bed without having an everyday dose of their favorite music. But do they want to wake up to music? Of course, no.

What you can to do save yourself from waking up to music in your ears is set a time on your Music app. In your Clock app under the Timer section, you will see a When Time Ends tag. Explore this tag and select Stop Playing at the end of the tag. Now turn the timer on and your music will stop automatically right when the timer goes off.

By the way, this can save you a lot of battery as your music will not be playing all night along.

2. Take a Photo without Touching Your Phone


We all know that olden golden trick of capturing a photo with the volume buttons of your phone. What you are about to read is even cooler than that.

If you have earphones connected to your iPhone, you don’t have to even touch your phone rather just use the volume keys of headphones to capture the picture. Remember, the headphones should be compatible with iPhone.

1. Do This to Improve Your Signals


If you are an iPhone user stuck in the middle of nowhere because your signals won’t show up, this might save your day. Type *3001#12345#* on your iPhone’s dial and hit call. This will launch the Field Mode tool to turn your chart-based signal indicator into a numerical-based signal signifier.

If you get the score of -50, you have nothing to worry about. However the -120 and around will mean you need to struggle to even send a text message.

We hope you enjoy and take benefit of these amazing features you never knew existed!
