2. Auto delete your iPhone Video/Audio text messages.

 

Go to Settings -> Messages -> Audio Messages

Change the default from Never to 2 Minutes. Note: This only deletes the audio/video messages on your iPhone and not on the devices you already sent them too.

 

3. Fastest way to re-charge iPhone battery

 

If your iPhone is still on, enable Airplane mode. In addition, quit all your iPhone apps still open (double click home button and swipe up on open apps to quit them)

Next, use an Apple approved iPad charger to charge the iPhone. Your iPhone will charge much more quickly this way.

 

4. Make an Anonymous call from your iPhone

 

You can make an anonymous call from your iPhone by dialing #31# and then the number you want to call.

6. Find text in a Safari Web page easily

 

Naviage to a web page using Safari on your iPhone. After, go back to the top of the Safari search bar and type in the keyword you want to find on page. You will see suggestions pop-up. At the bottom, you will see On This Page - click it. You can now search for instances of that term on the web page your on.

7. Undo iPhone typing

 

Yes, we all type in text messages or notes on our iPhone and sometimes struggle when typing something we didn’t want to. There is no easy undo button to select for removing what we just typed.

The solution is to shake your iPhone to bring up the Undo Typing prompt. This will remove your last break in text. Handy!

 

8. Easiest way to hide iPhone unused Apps

 

The iPhone iOS doesn’t let us delete built in system apps. While annoying, we can still hide them so they aren’t on our home screen taking up space.

Create a new folder on your home screen and drag all the Apps you want into this folder.

Finally, move the folder off to a home screen page you don’t use – this way you will never see it!

 

9. Turn off iMessage previews text on iPhone home screen

 

Stay hidden and secured and turn off your iMessage text previews when someone texts you while your iPhone is locked.

Go to Settings -> Notifications -> at the bottom, turn off Show Previews

 

iPhone Disable iMessage Previews
