Infinite Back Button
Let’s assume you’re deep into your iPhone settings. If you want to go back to a specific page or stop tapping “Back” all the time, here’s one of the best iPhone tips you can have to save your time. Press and hold “Back” in the top left corner and you’ll find all the previous pages available to go back to.
If you’re like me and think Notes app is one of the most important stock apps, you’ll love this iPhone tip. When you edit a note, you can tap it with three fingers to discover a hidden shortcut menu.
This gesture gives you the “Copy, cut and paste” switch in a top bar, instead of holding down a letter, word, or phrase. In addition, you also get access to the “undo” and “redo” options.
Timer shortcut on the Control Center
First of all, if you don’t have the Timer switch in your Control Center, follow these steps:
- Go to Settings;”
- Open “Control Center” and add the Timer switch.
Now, the iPhone tip you’ve been waiting for. With the timer added to your Control Center, just long-press the switch and you can slide your finger to select the exact amount of time you need to be reminded. More reliable than Siri, right?
video music hack
If you have an iPhone 13 Pro, you’re probably familiar with movie mode, or even if you just want to record a video, you’ll know that some music looks even better. With that in mind, there’s a hack you can do to play any song while recording a video using the iPhone’s built-in Camera app.
This is definitely one of the best iPhone tips, and here’s how you can take advantage of it:
- Start playing any song on Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, Amazon Music etc;
- Open the Camera app, then press and hold for a second and slide your finger to the right to turn the Photo Shooter into the Video Shooter;
