You Spend Half Your Life On It, So Why Don’t You Know The Tricks?
1 – (iPad Only) 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 an iPhone!
2 – If you put your phone on airplane mode, it will charge twice as fast
3 – In the Calculator app, remove an accidental extra zero by swiping left to right
4 – 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.
5 – You can use ANY bluetooth keyboard with your iPhone or iPad
It turns basically any iPhone or iPad into a portable laptop.
6 – Tap the top bar of any app to scroll back up to the top
No more crazy thumb scrolling when you’re way down on the page.
7 – 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.”
8 – When ending a sentence, instead of typing a full stop 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 trick will really improve the speed of your typing.
9 – Swipe right to left to banish a banner notification
Very important to know this when that embarrassing text shows up suddenly on your screen.
10 – In Safari, hold down the full stop to quickly add a domain in the search bar
