Tips And Tricks That Will Make You Life With The Iphone Easier

Actually, yes pretty much anyone can use a Smartphone without problems. But there are still a few tweaks that the default user haven’t. Here are five of these tricks with instructions.

Organize your Inbox

Who does not know it? Your Inbox is overflowing and you totally lost the overview about its mails. In our video, we will show how to install order in your Inbox:

imessage & News: Attachments at a glance

To find this a specific video or that a certain image, many chat history from below were durchgescrollt upwards. But it can be made is also somewhat simpler: top right click in the chat history next to the contact name details, sees the sent and received attachments clearly listed.

iMessage: automatically delete audio and video news

IMessage, it is possible to send both audio and video messages. Because they take but not little storage space, iOS offers the possibility to delete these messages automatically after two minutes. Under Settings→ messages the appropriate option to find is.

The reader view: Protection against flood of advertising & more enjoyable read

Safari provides you with a single click to switch to the view of the reader. This is especially useful when a Web page before advertising overflowing and navigating on the Smartphone is significantly hampered by the fact. But also for pages without advertising, the reader view is hilfreich-for example, when the corresponding page has no mobile view and reading the text is complicated by constant back and herscrollen. The reader view is available, this is indicated on the basis of three horizontal lines in the input bar (see screenshot).

Delete individual pages from your Safari history

There are many good reasons to want to save every visited website in his history. Who wants to forego applying a gradient but not generally, can be removed subsequently and individually specific pages. For only the history must be opened and cleaned it in the line of the page you want to delete from right to left.

DuckDuckGo instead of Google

DuckDuckGo is a search engine that collects any personal information. Thus in order to also filter bubbles of the past. Safari offers its users the ability to set as default search engine DuckDuckGo. Under Settings → Safari → search engine This is possible.

Save battery

Smartphone come behind batteries always less behind the intensive use of the user. Many rely on power banks or housing with integrated battery. Others, however, are never to be found without charging cable.Many manufacturers have now responded with “Energisparmodi”, which limited the telephone activation to minimum functions, so that Smartphone perseveres until the next socket. Apple has indeed no such profiles, but there are a things that you can do, not again in the afternoon to recharge your iPhone.

Faster charging

Should our first tip is to be come too late, that’s no problem – because the iPhone is also relatively quick to recharge, if you turn on airplane mode. How her very in the video.

Voice output

Who does not want to read the content on his iPhone itself, which can let entspannterweise read aloud they are by the iPhone. Here, you can decide whether you want to have read aloud the entire screen or whether it enough for you to make a selection.

Settings → General → accessibility → speech

At this point, you can choose well, as I said, between selection speak and speak screen content. In addition to Sprechtempo, highlight content and speak Auto-text settings can be made. Here, the iPhone is able to speak a variety of languages with output to the quality “Standard” or “High quality” can be set for each language offered by Apple. The setting “High quality” requires a download of the corresponding package.

The home-button triple click & the underlying functions

When we us at this point even in the depths of accessibility (settings → General → accessibility) hang around, we want to take this opportunity to introduce you to the so-called command. The ability to assign an action to a triple click on the home button is hidden under this. Among the options are VoiceOver, color invert, grayscale, zoom, switch control, AssitiveTouch.

By the way: These things can be achieved of course in other ways and are then permanently activated:

  • VoiceOver:Settings → General → accessibility of → VoiceOver. VoiceOver speaks out the screen objects and so extensive personalization features.
  • Colors: settings→ General → accessibility of → colors reverse. In this way, any color on your screen is inverted. Because an iPhone screen very often dominant white color, this setting is particularly useful if the display shows a, for example, at night. This setting has however also resulted in photographs and images look pretty damn odd to creepy: surfing on Instagram & co. is the reverse colors which is not necessarily suitable.
  • Grayscale: settings→ General → accessibility → grayscale. Who enabled this setting, who cut off his iPhone display any color. Grayscale and colors can be combined naturally!

Bedtime

Like some music or an audio book listening to sleep, will be happy especially about this option. Located under “Watch” Timer brings feature a play stop -see End of timer. It is located under the ringtones that are set for the end of the timer can be. Thus, it is possible to stop the music / the audiobook after a certain time to let this way can save battery. It also avoids so an again waking in a less deep sleep. This process is fortunately not only with the iPhone own music app, but also with Spotify & co. as well as YouTube, Amazon instant video and other apps of this kind.

Forward and back – without the controls

Since Apple has let grow its iPhones to a size beyond the 4″, it is very convenient to rely not on the button in the upper left corner. This promoted a back normally on the page before. In the meantime is to wipe it but also possible “just so” from the left to the right and return to the previous page in this way.This works fine in the Apple’s own apps, but also many third-party apps, like e.g. WhatsApp, offer this function.

Location based reminders

A familiar problem: “next time, if I come to the Office supply store, but I must buy a new College block me”. As we all know: this works only in the rarest of cases. Usually, one passes to the stationery store, maybe just looking in the shop window, but buys no College block. They again arrived at home, it is observed to have bought still no College block. So that problems are of this kind of the past, the iPhone offers its owners a corresponding function.

The emergency passport: With your iPhone you are well prepared in an emergency

Of course, we hope never to have a fatal accident and that, should this happen but we not alone (on the road) are at this moment. In case of necessity, the iPhone but provides an emergency passport. This is hidden in the healthapp. You open it, a bar appears at the bottom of the screen: Overview, data, sources, emergency Passport.

Fun parts: Customize share icons

Some apps, including Safari and photographs offer the enables to share certain things, for example, via WhatsApp or mail directly. Apple has enabled here by default certain apps and arranged them in a preset order. Both can be changed: who does not use Twitter, needed the option not to share content on Twitter.Who frequent content via telegram about the messages sent, is rather slightly earlier telegram or want to have links in the list.

From bottom to top: Safari helps when scrolling

Who has driven around with his iPhone on ever forever long Web pages, will have noted, it is as tedious to scroll back to the top of the page. Safari can help but very good one by typing instead of scrolling to the top of the display. It is so with a single click again at the top of the page.

The Flash alert

Who his iPhone on silent is, but would like to avoid to miss an important notification, for which the solution has Christos:

“It was just there yet”: search on a Web page

Already commonplace in the computer: use of CTRL + f browse many users daily Web site. It goes well with the iPhone! For this, the word, in our example “iPhone” in Safari’s address bar is entered. Depending on the applied bookmarks and history, some scroll must, but below the section “on this page” is located. A click on the search result brings one back on the site that should be searched. At the bottom of the screen, the number of hits will be shown, accompanied by two arrows, with which the matches can be gone through.

Rien ne va plus: “Nothing is more” there is not only in the roulette

Granted, it happens rarely. But “rare” we know not “never” means. And so it can happen even in an iPhone, that freezes the screen and the iPhone responds either home – or the power button. For a device with replaceable battery, this would be the time to take this out to turn off your Smartphone and to restart. This is as you know not everyday possibility with an iPhone. Instead, the solution for a so-called hard reset is: simultaneously pressing (and more seconds holding!) of home and power button. Data are not lost in usually.

Personalized vibration pattern

Christos shows, as one can see thanks to personalized vibration patterns in the Pocket, who’s just calling one.

Heavenly rest: block unwanted callers

Annoying telemarketing calls or other reasons, you want to not just able to receive some calls. iOS, locking of phone numbers with just a few clicks is prepared and allows. Just for numbers, for which you not only want to create a contact, this is a good way. To do this, the call list must be called. Who is in the call list next to any number / any contact information button. Clicking this takes you on a new page, on the end of the option waiting “Block caller” (see picture on left). Of course as a block can be undone also. UnderSettings → Phone → locked all blocked contacts and phone numbers are listed (see right screenshot) and can be released accordingly also again.

Mail: Insert quote level and photos

Both functions are not iOS revealed at first glance, but they are actually quite simple (and in the same way) to reach: for tapping with the finger in the E-Mail text box and slide slightly longer pressed until the round magnifying glass appears. At this moment, the finger can be removed from the display, it shows up a Black backed selection: Select | Everything | Inserting. In addition, an arrow is to recognize, the one here want quote level selection. Add a photo or video brings.

How good is the reception of my iPhone?

Five small circles in the upper left corner are slightly inaccurate to draw reliable conclusions about the reception. Christos shows you how you can extend this display. For those who do not quickly enough to follow him to: The to be a combination of number characters is * 3001#12345# *

Mail multitasking

Nothing unusual: it is just to write a new e-mail message, that one reminds, that you must read actually something in an earlier email. Many save for the new email as a draft, but this is not necessary. Instead, it is sufficient to tap New E-Mail “above”, to hold this and slowly at the bottom of the screen to move the mail. Then you can act freely in his mailbox.

Which of my apps is actually the most mobile data volume?

Christos in this video shows you how you can check which of your apps rauben-prohibit you much data volume you can them too!

Take it easy: Slow scrolling in music and video

The speed is reduced, it is easier to accurate reels. From iOS8, the operating system provides the ability to browse music and videos with 50% or 25% speed. For the finger just on the current position of the/videos of piece of music must be placed and moved up or down.

Hide pre-installed apps

Not just a few iPhone owners are annoyed by the fact that Apple installed some apps, at least seriously used probably only by the. For some time the company but, under Settings → General → constraints allowsat least the iTunes store to hide the iBook store and podcasts.

Also, there is still another trick, with which also the other preloaded apps can be hidden:

  1. First the front side must be completely filled with apps, the same applies to the dock.
  2. Then one of the pre-installed apps on the front page is drawn.
  3. This should they crowd out none of the apps already there, but insteadfor a short time with one of the local apps open a folder. Caution: Do not release the hidden app here!
  4. Then the app into the pull direction dock and they disappear from the bottom of the screen.

This hide is however not permanently. They appear again after a restart of the iPhone.

“Huh?” – (alien) words with Safari look

Sometimes, it happens that as readers not necessarily every word of the text is known one. To not between different tabs back and jump to Safari offers the opportunity to highlight the word and then look up. Before this function, however, the first time can be used, the corresponding Dictionary packages must be downloaded under Manage. No definition can be found, the function provides a Web search (see bottom right) on.
