These days, it seems as if everyone has a smartphone. One of the most popular brands of smartphone is Apple’s iPhone. With these devices, there are any number of amazing things you can do to make your life easier. The following tips will help you get the most from your iPhone.
You will want to restart your iphone on a semi-regular basis. Giving it this little reboot from time to time helps to keep all your apps, programs and other functions running smoothly and properly. To do this, just turn off your phone, leave off for 30 seconds or more and then restart the device.
Find your phone fast with the brand new, free app called Find My iPhone. It lets you remotely access your phone to provide you with coordinates on a map, turn the volume up so the phone can be heard from under thick cushions, or lock the phone and wipe all data in case of theft.
If your iPhone has accidentally gotten wet, rice can be used to help it dry. It is common to drop the phone in a water puddle, the toilet or something wet. Don’t risk damaging the phone by using a blow dryer. Instead, use a soft cloth to wipe off the phone, then place it in a rice-filled ziploc bag. Leave it like that overnight, and it should be nice and dry in the morning.
One of the best buys you can make for your iPhone is a protective screen. Without such a protective device, the phone is sure to get scratched and dinged. It is easy for small particles on your fingers to create scratches. Make sure to always protect the screen of your phone.
You can edit the pictures you take on your iPhone. Go to the picture you want to edit. Once you find the picture, click the Edit button in the top right corner. This will allow you to fix red eye, crop, rotate or auto enhance. After you make your fix, click Save in the top right corner.
If your iPhone uses the iOS4 platform, you may find that running more than one app will drastically slow down the phone’s performance. Double-tap the Home button to bring up a list of all currently running and suspended apps. Tap, then hold each one until each icon wiggles. You can then use the delete button to close any unneeded apps.
Did you know that iPhones can take screenshots just like a computer can? In order for you to take a screenshot from your iPhone, hold down your phone’s home button and afterwards press the Sleep button. You’ll then hear a camera click, see a flash, and then a screenshot of your iPhone will be saved in your Camera Roll.
Even if you know a fair amount about your iPhone, there is always something new to learn about this powerful device. By using an iPhone, you can make any number of tasks go more smoothly. Just use the tips and techniques you have learned from this article to make your iPhone work for you.
