7 tricks for iPhone that will save you time

The best secret tricks for your iPhone

1. How to undo your last action with three fingers

IOS toolbar.

Virtually everyone who has been using an iPhone or iPad for a while will know that there is a feature that allows you to shake the phone slightly to undo the last action. This is a very useful feature that is especially convenient when you are writing text.

But not all users know that there is another method to undo the actions. And it is that you can not always shake the phone to undo an action. What if your hands are wet and it slips? What if you are in the middle of a very important meeting?

Luckily, there is a much more discreet way to activate the toolbar for copying, pasting and undoing. Simply press your iPhone screen with three fingers and will appear. It is available in applications such as Notes, Messages, Mail, and others.

2. Protect your privacy on your Wi-Fi network


When you connect to a Wi-Fi network with your iPhone or iPad, your mobile device shares the MAC address on the network. As indicated from iDropNews This number identifies your phone and the network it is connected to. But there is a way to protect this sensitive information to prevent operators from tracking your connections.

Apple implemented a very easy-to-use function that allows you to protect the privacy of your Wi-Fi addresses. The utility is responsible for obscuring the tracking of connection traffic scanners by creating a different MAC address for each of the Wi-Fi networks you connect to.

To access this function you simply have to enter Ajustes > Wi-Fi and click on the «i» (information) button to enable the «Private address» option.

3. How to take a screenshot of an entire web page


Imagine that you are surfing the net and you come across a very interesting website that you want to save to read later without an Internet connection. Instead of taking multiple screenshots, Apple offers a feature that allows you to take a screenshot of the entire web page in one sitting.

To take a screenshot of an entire web page, the first thing you need to do, obviously, is access the website in question. Once this is done, make sure the web has loaded (we recommend doing scroll to check) and then take a screenshot as you normally would with the volume buttons and the lock button simultaneously.

A thumbnail of your screenshot will appear in the lower left corner of your iPhone. Click on the thumbnail. Finally, select the “Full page” tab and you’re done. Your iPhone will take care of capturing the entire web page.

4. Take a selfie in mirror mode


The mirror mode of portrait photos allows you to take photos with the same appearance that you would have in front of a mirror but without the need to use a mirror. Many applications already offer this functionality by default, you can even quickly edit the images to reverse the orientation.

But there is a function that will allow you to take selfies in mirror mode in a much more comfortable, convenient and automatic way. Just go to Settings> Camera and enables the option «Preserve mirror effect». The next time you take a portrait mode photo, it will be mirrored automatically.

5. How to make the flash turn on with notifications

There are many occasions when we disable notifications, put the iPhone on silence or activate Do Not Disturb mode and then forget to configure it again, thus making us miss many important notifications.

Also, you may find yourself in a very noisy environment and not hear notifications from your phone. There is a little solution that, on the other hand, will make you look pretty cool in front of your friends.

Thanks to the accessibility functions of iOS you can make the flash of your phone blink every time you receive a notification or a call. This is what you have to do to activate this little hidden trick: go to Settings> Accessibility> Audio / visual and activates the “Flashing LED warnings” function.

6. Use only and exclusively the App Library

Many users have loved this new way of exploring the apps on their smartphones and want to stop using the conventional Home screen.

If you are one of those users who wants to stop using the traditional Home Screen and just use the iOS App Library… we have good news for you. There is a way for the apps you download and install on your iPhone to only appear in the App Library.
