Yes, it's great for making calls, taking pics and sending text messages, but that little iPhone in your pocket can do so much more. Just for grins (and your enlightenment), here are seven cool iPhone tricks and tips you might not know about:
Shake to Erase
Type something you want to delete? Accidentally erased an important email? Use a physical gesture to undo your last action. Be sure to grip your iPhone tightly before giving it a gentle shake. That should be enough to bring up the Undo feature.
Request Silent Notifications
There are times when it may be preferable to be notified by a flash of light in lieu of an audible signal. To make this happen, go to Settings > General > Accessibility and choose LED flash alerts.
Define a Word
Any time you're using Safari and come across a baffling word, simply tap it and hold. A 'define' option will appear. Great for users who wish to understand what they read while improving their vocabulary.
Hard Reboot the Easy Way
All computers, even those made by Apple, lock up now and then. If your iPhone crashes or becomes unstable, perform a hard reboot the easy way. Press and hold the 'home' and 'power' buttons simultaneously. This will restart your phone and correct a range of problems. Be patient, as the reboot process may take up to a minute to complete.
Play Music On a Sleeping iPhone
In the mood to hear your favorite tunes, but don't want to wake or unlock your iPhone? Double-tap the 'home' button and your music controls will appear. Listen to music without taking your iPhone out of its secure state.
Save Any Image
PC users can get a little crazy when they don't have a right-click way to save images. When an iPhone user wants to save an image found online, they just tap and hold the pic until the image controls come up.
Halve Recharging Time
Did you know that an iPhone set to Airplane Mode recharges in about half the time? Try it and see for yourself.
