If you have ever seen anyone use an iphone, you have seen that they are sleek, stylish, and ultra-functional. Whether you are a current iphone owner or someone who is thinking about buying one, you will find some outstanding tips and advice below for maximum enjoyment of all it has to offer.
If you have noticed your iphone losing battery quickly, one way to improve battery life is by turning off or disabling the applications and other functions that you are not using. Even if they are not in actual use by you, they still drain battery power and can shorten the intervals between recharges. Wireless radio functions on your iphone such as Wi-Fi or your GPS and your Bluetooth use additional battery power on your iphone that will cause more frequent recharging. When not in use, disable them to save power.
Make sure the firmware is updated on your iphone. That will help the usability of the iphone, as well as battery life. Updating your firmware is easy and can be done by connecting your computer to your phone and uploading iTunes. On the other hand, you can utilize iCloud to facilitate your connections.
If you like to know the weather reports, did you know you can access the six-day forecast and current conditions simply by swiping the iphone to the right or left? You can also get to the Weather app from the Notifications section of your iphone.
Your iphone can provide visual indicators of incoming messages and calls. If you want to have a silent notification, the iPhone’s LED camera can be set to blink whenever you receive a call and/or message. Access this feature by utilizing the settings menu, and then tapping on “general” then “accessibility”. Select the button “LED Flash on Alerts.”
If you would like to have weather updates on your iphone, try using the Weather app. Some users do not know that the local weather can be be displayed for up to twelve hours in the future. Also, you can just ask the phone for the weather forecast for just a few hours in the future.
Use your handy iphone to quickly snap a screenshot. Once you find the screen you want to save, hold the “home” button down while simultaneously clicking the “sleep” button. The screen will turn a white color when your screenshot has been taken and saved. It’s that simple!
