What You Need To Know About Using Your Iphone

Regardless of how old you are or what your other background is, you are probably grateful for the invention of the iPhone. Why does everyone love the iPhone? Read on for more information, including tips and tricks about how to best use the iPhone.

Is your iPhone frozen or not responding? If pushing the Home or Sleep buttons does nothing, first try holding the Home button for six seconds. Any apps that are locked will instantly close. If it still does not work, hold both of these buttons down for ten seconds. Doing this should cause the Apple to pop up on the screen and your mobile device will reset.

The iPhone is wonderful for easily being able to send photos to all your friends and family. You can do this in two ways. One way is saving the image and adding it in attachment form to a message or email. Another way is uploading it straight to Facebook.

Are you aware that you can snap a photo from the headphone cord? Initially, you will want to frame the photograph. Then, when you are ready to take your picture, push the button on your headphone cord. You have now taken a photo using your headphone cord. Save the picture as you normally would.

You can view either current weather conditions or the weather forecast on your iPhone by moving your finger left or right. You can also use the Weather app just by tapping on the weather bar on your Notifications screen.

If you are interrupted while composing an email, simply press cancel. The iPhone then gives you the option of saving a draft rather than discarding the email. If you hit “yes,” you’ll be able to retrieve the email from your draft folder when you’re ready to continue writing.

Do you need to try and back up your iPhone contacts? This can simply be done by getting a neat little app that is called iDrive Lite. This app lets you share and restore your general contact list. Not only that, it is free if you switch your software to 2.0 before starting.

As you probably know, you can set reminders to start at certain times. Did you know that it’s possible to set reminders based on location? For example, you might tell your phone to “Remind me to call Mom when I leave work.” No matter what you need to remember, the iPhone can help.

Get a keyboard that is bigger in order to browse easier with your iPhone. Fortunately, there is no need to purchase a keyboard. The iPhone has a feature that allows you to rotate the phone, open Safari and have instant access to a more user friendly keyboard. You have a larger, easier-to-use keyboard for faster and more efficient typing.

If you browse on your iPhone using Safari, you do not have to type “.com” in the URL. To go directly to a website simply type the websites name into the URL box.

Your iPhone Safari browser will do most anything a computer browser can do. If you run into a picture you want to save while you’re browsing, just tap and hold it. The context menu pops up and lets you store the photo directly to the image app, if you have one. After saving, you can insert this right into a text message.

You can turn your iPhone into a thumb drive by equipping it with an app that lets you upload files to it. With the app, text, music, and even photos can be uploaded. You can access files by connecting your phone directly to your computer, or you can view/listen to them on your phone.

Here’s a handy little hint when you’re on your iPhone and you’ve reached the bottom of a long web page. Well, now that is no longer necessary. You can go straight back to the beginning of a web page by tapping the status bar (where the clock appears) on top of the screen. This feature works for any screen that you may have up.

When you aren’t using your iPhone, keep the screen off or very dim. The brightness of your screen directly relates to how long your phone stays powered. By keeping the screen dark, you will not have to plug in your phone nearly as often.

To ensure the safety of your device, buy a screen protector. This will help to prevent scratches, which can damage the look of your device. Even dirt on your fingers may cause scratches. So make sure you protect the screen by buying a screen protector for your iPhone.

If you’ve just dropped you phone in water, make sure you don’t turn it on. Dry the outside well and allow the any internal water to dry overnight. If the phone is turned on while wet, it could short circuit.

Beware of talking to Siri too much on your iPhone, if you care about your privacy. Nearly all voice prompts spoken to Siri are recorded and stored on an Apple server. This is done to improve their speech recognition software. They do try to keep all files secure, though sometimes this is impossible.

When you are typing, there is a way to make better use of your time on the iPhone. Add shortcuts on your keyboard by going to your keyboard settings. Keyboard settings are found under general settings. Taking advantage of this feature enables you to load in any regular word groups that you use on a regular basis. This short cut feature will eliminate a lot of time for you in the future by auto-filling the long phrases.

Be careful with your iPhone charging cord; it can become damaged easily. If you need to disconnect the cord from a USB port or a power outlet, do it gently. If taken care of, the cord should be good for a year.

The iPhone is a pretty common device today. No you are aware of all the great features that an iPhone has to offer, apply the knowledge you have gained from this article to get the most out of it.
