✔️ A home screen, do not disturb, longer battery life and more reliable device unlocking are all instantly achievable on your iPhone 12 with some quick settings changes.
The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are two stellar devices. Apple’s latest devices come with iOS 14 installed out of the box, which has its own set of new features. Apple’s default settings aren’t always the best to help you get the most out of your iPhone. Let’s take a few steps that will make your new iPhone even better.
1️⃣ Fine-tune how much data is used on a 5G connection
If you’re happy with 5G performance, here’s a network-related setting you should check out. Go to Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options > Data Mode where you’ll find three different options: Allow more data on 5G, Standard and Low Data Mode.
The default setting on this page will depend on your carrier and your data plan, so it’s a good idea to check your iPhone 12 and make sure it’s set to your preference.
2️⃣ Show full notifications on your lock screen
If it is your first experience with Apple’s Face ID tech, you’ll notice that you can’t see the contents of new alerts and notifications on the lock screen. For example, instead of seeing who sent you a text message and what it says, you’ll only see a generic Messages alert.
You can change how notifications appear on your lock screen by going to Settings > Notifications > Show Previews and select Always. Conversely, you can select Never if you want to keep the contents of your notifications always hidden on the lock screen.
3️⃣ Avoid home screen app clutter
With the release of iOS 14, iPhone users have more options and control over what their home screen looks like. The new App Library, for example, acts as an app drawer, allowing you to remove apps from your home screen without deleting them.
if you don’t want new apps to go directly to the App Library where you’re sure to forget about their existence after a day or two, go to Settings > Home Screen and select either Add to Home Screen or App Library Only.
4️⃣ Make screen text easier to read
With a couple taps on your iPhone’s screen you can adjust the font size to make it easier to read. Open Settings and go to Display & Brightness > Text Size where you can use the slider until you’re happy with the font size.
For a little added oomph, you can turn on Bold Text (it’s just below the Text Size button).
5️⃣ Turn on dark mode. You won’t regret it
If you don’t want to have to repeatedly adjust your screen’s brightness, you can use iOS 13’s dedicated dark mode that’s been proven to save on battery life. Dark mode converts all of the white backgrounds in apps to, more often than not, a black background. In turn, your phone is able to save battery power thanks to the darker colors.
Turn it on by going to Settings > Display & Brightness and selecting the Dark option at the top of the screen.
Apple’s apps will automatically switch to a dark color scheme and most third-party apps have also adopted the feature.
