When you look around your community, you no doubt notice that iPhones are everywhere. People use them for listening to music, mobile internet surfing, the plethora of apps available and even just as a status symbol. If you want to use yours for more than just showing off you have it, read on.
You need not worry about being lost when you have your iPhone. There is a maps app integrated into your phone when you purchase it, and it will allow you to check your location wherever you have service. Should you need to get home, or somewhere new, this feature is the key.
If you have the misfortune of dropping your iPhone in water, use rice to dry it out. First, dry off the phone with a towel. Without turning the phone on, place it in a bowl of dry white rice for at least 8 hours. The rice will help to absorb moisture, and it may keep your phone from shorting out when you turn it back on.
Use the headphone cord to help you take pictures. It can be difficult to take a picture that is in focus if you are pushing a button that is on the actual phone. Instead, push the cord’s button; the slight movement will not affect your iPhone at all, allowing you to take a crisp, clear photograph.
Is your iPhone frozen? Hold down the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time. Wait until it gives you the option to shut it down. Swipe the screen to shut your phone down. Once it powers down, turn it back on. This will reset the phone and generally fixes any problem you may have with your freezing.
With the iPhone you can quickly take pictures on your phone. Once you slide to unlock the phone, hit the camera app on the lock screen and open it up to use the camera. This feature makes it easy to quickly take pictures and never miss out on a memory.
Use your phone horizontally when you are inputting data. It is easy to forget, but the keys are much larger when the phone is horizontal, so it is so much easier to accurately input text. If you do not already have that capability on your phone, you can get the application from Safari.
If you drop your iPhone into something wet, don’t panic. Leave it off and simply dry it gently with a towel. Then grab a zipper storage bag or bowl and submerge the phone in some uncooked white rice. The rice will help draw out the moisture that is trapped inside the phone.
If you called someone and do not remember their number or when you called them, click the “recents” button in the phone section. This button will not only give you a list of your recent calls and their times, but also allow you to delete these call logs or check your missed calls.
As was mentioned at the beginning of this article, many iPhone owners simply have them as a status symbol. There is nothing wrong that. However, if you want to get out of that crowd and get the most out of your iPhone, apply the ideas and advice that you read here today.
