13 THINGS YOUR iPhone CAN DO YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT
iPhone is a unique multi-touch screen portable phone which performs as a video camera, laptop (internet/web-browsing) etc. with Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity.
1. iPhone AUTO- CORRECTION SAVES YOU THE EMBARRASSMENT
Oops! I didn’t want to send this…Go to “settings”, “general”, “keyboard” and you have auto-correction of undesired text word. If you type abbreviated or wrong words, iPhone replaces these by the correct words.
2. YOUR BROWSING SITES ARE FOR YOUR EYES ONLY!
Go to “settings”, “Safari”, “private browsing”, (ON) and the “personal” website you like to visit will remain your secrets.
3. WANT SOMEONE TO PEEP INTO YOUR CALL HISTORY? No-way
Go to ‘”phone application”, touch the “recent” call icon. A red “delete” sign will appear. Gently swipe it to erase the call. History of your secret personal calls is gone.
4. VIEWING YOUR CALENDAR WAS NEVER SO EASY
View your planned appointments and events chart in colour by flipping the iPhone sideways – scroll to the left for the past schedules and to the right for future schedules.
5. CAMERA FLASH REPLACES YOUR RINGTONES AND VIBRATION MODE FOR ‘MESSAGE ALERT’
Go to “settings”, “accessibility” and change “LED flash for alerts” to ‘ON’. Camera will now flash for any incoming alerts, on silent mode.
6. CREATE YOUR TAILOR MADE VIBRATION STYLES
Go to “settings”, then “general”, click on “accessibility” and then turn the custom vibrations to “ON”. Back to “settings” and choose any of the levels from “sound” and “vibration”. Create new patterns of your choice and save. Now, you have customized vibrations/sounds to recognize the senders of incoming calls/messages.
7. GO TO TOP WITHOUT SCROLLING BY JUST A TAP
Busy reading a long text and want to go back to top, gently hit the status bar instead of scrolling, but don’t lose track of your page.
8. HIT THE “shift” KEY 2 TIMES AND “Caps Lock” IS ‘ON’
Go to “settings”, “general”, “keyboard” and tap “Enable Caps Lock” instead of using “shift” key every time . Press “shift” key to go back to lowercase.
9. CREATE WORDS THAT YOU WISHED WERE IN A DICTIONARY (UMLAUT)
Just press and hold a particular letter for the word you’re searching. Many options appear. Choose whatever you like.
10. WANT TO INCREASE THE SPEED OF BROWSING?
Save a few seconds by logging to websites without typing www.
11. Siri – THE AMUSING SPEAKER VOICE
For the users of iPhone 4S, this acts as a speaker’s voice. From the website “S..t Siri Says” select questions to be asked and Siri will reply. It finds you the phone numbers, directions to reach the nearby locations and much more.
12. SEND MULTIPLE PICTURES WITH AN EMAIL
You can attach many pictures with your email message. Mac-Rumour says copy and paste pictures as many as you like.
13. CREATE YOUR OWN CUSTOMISED GESTURES
No swiping, create your own customized gestures to navigate on your iPhone. A mere tap on the screen could mean “scroll down”.
Go to “settings”, “general”, “accessibility” and change “assistive touch” to “on”. Select “create new gesture” and record the swiping action you want to reproduce. Press “save”, assign a name and store in “favourites”.
These are just a few things however with change in technology many other features will be added and list of things that we do not know about iPhone.
