5 iPhone Tricks and Tips You Should Try Now

5. Scroll Up to the Top With a Tap

Maybe you're reading a 10-minute article with your phone. When you finally reach the comments section, you want to review the author and date of the article.

Instead of spending your time manually scrolling up the article, tapping anywhere on the top of the screen will automatically bring the display to the top of the article. This trick also works for applications and messages. For example, you are scrolling on the different options under "Settings." One tap on the top of the screen should zoom you back to the first Settings option.

4. Play Background Sounds on iPhone

A new and exciting feature introduced in iOS 15 is the background sound. This plays a calming tune like rain, ocean and white noise whenever you use your iPhone. To activate this, do the following steps:

  • Open "Settings"
  • Activate "Control Center"
  • Under "More Settings," add the "Hearing" option
  • On the top navigation bar, there should be a new "Ear Icon." Tap on it
  • Activating this icon will prompt open a tab where you can select the "Background Sound" and "Volume" settings

3. Move Cursor Without Tapping

If you love messaging friends, then you will definitely find this next hack useful. iPhone integrates a quick trick that lets you move text cursor without tapping. This will save you the trouble of trying to move that blinking indicator between two small letters with your big meaty thumb.

Instead, you can just press and hold the spacebar! This automatically controls and moves the cursor based on your finger movement.

2. You Can Be an Engineer With iPhone

iPhone can also be a lot more useful than just a messaging and web-surfing device. Try opening the "Utilities" and "Measure" app. One of its functions is a Level, which measures the flatness of a surface. Aside from checking if your table is "perfectly straight," you can use this app to measure angles and degrees on real stuff.

This can help you hang your picture frame straight the next time you decorate your room.

1. Scan and Sign Documents

Lastly, if you want to use your iPhone for business, then you should take advantage of its scanning and signing function. It is worth noting that the iPhone processes these commands instantaneously, with almost zero lag time.

To use the feature, grab a document. Tap on the bottom of the camera and select the option "Scan on Documents." iPhone uses an intuitive program to perfectly capture the document during a scan.

Afterward, "Save" the file. Click on "Share" and "Mark up." Tap the plus button and "Add Signature" to complete the process.

Note that these are only some of the exciting features available on iPhone. There might be more exciting additions as iOS 15 continues to be improved.
