Seven iPhone Tips You May Not Know About
As a photographer, I use my iPhone often. Whether I’m sending emails, scheduling photo appointments, taking fun photos, editing photos or talking to clients, I use the phone all the time. There are some cool iPhone shortcuts and tips that many people may not be aware of, so I thought I would share them.
1. When the camera app is open, you can use the volume controls to snap images. This can be much more convenient than pressing the home (capture) button.
2. Your photo can take rapid fire shots in burst mode. Open the camera app, press and hold the home (capture) button and you will see an indicator of the number of rapid fire shots that were taken. They will appear as one image in “photos”, but you can select “favorites” to see the individual shots.
3. Your camera has a built in level. Just open the “compass” app, swipe left, and there it is. This is great for proper installation of framed and mounted prints.
4. I wish I knew this one a long time ago. Double tap on the space bar to end a sentence, add a period, and start a new one. This is a big time saver.
5. Also, sometimes you type a bunch of text and realize you need to start over. No problem. Just shake your phone and a pop-up will give you the option of “undo”.
6. Turning you phone to “airplane” mode speeds up the recharging process.
7. For increased security, go to “settings”, “general”, “touch id & passcode” and then turn off “simple passcode”. This will enable you to insert more secure characters into your passcode.
