My iPhone has managed to integrate itself into my lifestyle, and over the years, I have learned to utilize this device for my own purposes. In this article, I am basically going to discuss the hidden features of iPhone that you can also use for saving your time and the energy of its batteries.
Send a reply to your text message without unlocking your iPhone:
Yes, life turns hectic sometimes and responding to text messages might become irritating and time-consuming. As a result, you can directly slide down the notifications bar above where there is “Reply” option available for your convenience that allows you to reply to your texts without unlocking your phone.
Pinpoint the apps that consume the maximum energy:
If the battery to your iPhone is frequently running out of juice, try to find out the apps that consume the most energy. Simply, go to Settings > Battery from where you will be able to find out which application(s) are eating away your iPhone’s batteries.
See all the images your friends have sent you:
If you want to view all the pictures sent to your phone from a different individual, use the thread of his/her message and tap “details” button located in the upper-right corner of the screen. In this way, you will be able to view all transactions that took place between you two.
Let your friend know where you are:
If you’re unsure about a location’s safety and its environment, you can also share your current location with one of your best friends. Simply tap the “details” button in the upper right corner portion of the screen in the messaging thread and tap again on the “Send my location.”
Mute unwanted texts:
When you feel like you are getting irritated by an individual’s overwhelming number of text messages, you can easily tap on the “Do not disturb” button located in that particular person’s messaging thread.
Switch on your virtual assistant “Siri” by uttering its name:
You are not always required to hold down the home button for launching Siri as you can simply utter “Hey Siri” for waking it up. Go to settings>general>siri and switch on the “Enable Hey Siri” first.
When you are too lazy to read, have Siri read it for you:
Siri does the reading for you when you’re too lazy simply, go to Settings> General> Accessibility> Speech. Turn on the speak screen and speak selection which starts reading as you use your fingers for sliding down the content that you are reading.
Utilize these hidden features for saving your time and available juice left on your iPhone. Technology has indeed managed to lessen a load of our lives as we are preparing ourselves to live in this century.
