I know these iPhone Tips blogs are becoming highly played out. The only reason I’ve stooped to this level is I recently stumbled upon the following tips and I didn’t know a majority of them. Really hope I’m not being a broken record here.
Before we dive in, I have a tip for this tip blog, being, tip #10 is awesome!
Tip 1: Charge Twice as Fast
Switch your iPhone to Airplane mode when charging to double up on power. Airplane mode turns off a ton of little battery-wasting extras. If you are connected to Wifi, you’ll still receiving iMessages. Airplane mode for jet-like charging speeds; go figure!
Tip 2: Swipe Miscalculations
Tip 3: Shutter Release Headphones
Unless you have McGiver-like skills like the gentleman pictured above (is that John Stamos!?), you can now utilize the volume controls of your headphones as a shutter release for taking photos. It makes taking those shameful selfies much less apparent.
Tip 4: One Size Fits All BlueTooth Keyboarding
Despite popular belief, you can sync ANY Bluetooth keyboard to your iOS device. Perfect for when you need to break-up with someone through an unnecessarily long text message. Loosen up those fingers heartbreakers!
Tip 5: Inverted Colors for Comfort
Did you know you can invert the colors iOS user interface?! People have been doing this for easy viewing at night/before bed. I just think it’s cool because it’s different; and different is cool!
Go Settings > General > Accessibility. Turn on “Invert Colors.”
Tip 6: Avoid Your Period
Tip 7: Change Songs Remotely
Another headphone remote tip, the volume controls double as a remote! Skip, pause, and go-back can all be performed with your headphone remote. Press the middle button once to play/pause, twice to go to the next track, and press three times to go to the previous track.
Please note: The image above displays the portion of the remote to utilize for skipping tracks. This IS NOT how one should properly maintain their cuticles.
Tip 8: Banner Banish
Tip 9: Dot Annoying
Tip 10: The ULTIMATE iPhone Tip
Too exhausted to set up an alarm for a nap? Tell Siri to do it! Simply demand “Wake me in 2 hours” and Siri will do just that. This tip should be printed on the damn box.
Cynicism aside, I’ve seen a ton of these “Top iPhone Tips” blogs floating around and these are genuinely unique tips to my knowledge and I hope you guys enjoy them. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to me @AllanBlocker on Twitter.
