Always upgrade the OS to the most current version possible. The iPhone has become as sophisticated as many computers. Occasionally, the operating system needs to have fixes and security updates downloaded to protect it. For security purposes and all-around general usage, it’s imperative that you update your OS as needed. The Safari browser on your iPhone is capable of almost everything your standard, full-size computer browser is capable of–including saving images you find online. If you run into a picture you want to save while you’re browsing, just tap and hold it. The popup menu allows you to put the picture in your Camera Roll. You can then put it in a message if you want. You can have a better iPhone browsing experience by using a bigger keyboard. In order to get a bigger keyboard, you don’t even need to purchase one. Simply turn the device to the side, push the address bar in the browser and you will be all set! You will now have a keyboard that is bigger and much easier-to-use.
Getting the most out of your iPhone is a matter of mastering the little tricks, and one of them is how to get rid of unwanted emails with the swipe of a finger. Delete unwanted emails by pulling your finger over the message and deleting it.
Create your own shortcuts and dictionary on your iPhone. The iPhone can detect what you are trying to say. Word shortcuts and phrases can be added to the phone as well. Your keyboard will also autocorrect you when you are typing a word or phrase.
If the screen on your iPhone freezes, hold down Home for a few seconds. That should reset your phone. If not, press down the power and “home” buttons simultaneously, holding for 12 seconds. Only used the second method in the event that the first one is unable to resolve the problem.
Use this tip to make messaging speedier. You can dismiss a suggested word by tapping elsewhere on your screen. You do not have to press the tiny X that shows up on the word.
Although your iPhone does everything it can to make navigating web pages as easy as possible, it can still be a real slog to scroll back up to the top of a long page. Fortunately, it isn’t necessary! All you have to do is tap on the clock at the top and you will be automatically brought back up to the top. This works for other long screens (like iTunes lists) too.
