New iPhone tricks you’ll use all the time

Yes, your iPhone came with a user guide and there a ton of how-to videos on Apple’s site and YouTube. And we are ready to help you here!

Did you know that you can record your iPhone’s screen? It’s better than a screenshot that only gives you a still photo.

What about Apple Notes? The unassuming digital organizer is capable of a lot more than you realize. You can use it as a document scanner all the time.

Your iPhone contains countless features you probably aren’t using.

1️⃣ Respond to messages with a tap

A Tapback lets you respond or “react” to a message quickly with emojis — no need to hit send. Just double-tap or hold a message while in the Messages app. You can select a heart, thumbs up, thumbs down, !!, ? or Haha.

2️⃣ Adjust Calendar start and end times

When you add an event or edit an existing one in Calendar, time increments are by default set to five minutes. You can, however, change it between one and five-minute increments easily. To adjust the “Start” and “End” times, double-tap on either the date or time scroll wheel.

3️⃣ Organize your cards in Apple Wallet

With COVID-19, you really don’t want to use a touchpad at grocery stores. Using the Apple Wallet in your phone, you can store your credit, debit, prepaid, and store cards for easy touchless payment.

Open the wallet app and your cards stack on top of each other. The top default payment method is Apple Pay. To change it, tap your finger on the card you want to be your default payment method and drag it to the top of the stack. Easy!

4️⃣ Dim your iPhone with low light mode

If you’re using your phone in a dark room or the screen is merely too bright, you can turn to low light mode. This can dim your screen brightness more than the standard settings allow.

To enable it, tap Settings Accessibility Zoom Zoom Region > Full Screen Zoom. Return to the main Zoom menu and tap Zoom Filter > Low Light. Return to the main Zoom menu and toggle Zoom on.

Double-tap with three fingers to zoom out and restore the full screen. To access low light mode quickly, triple-tap the screen using three fingers or triple-click on the home button. Select Choose Filter to adjust or disable the light filter.

5️⃣ Stop the music

Looking for a bedtime timer that will stop your audio and lock your phone, forcing you to enter your passcode? You don’t need a special app for that.

Open the Music app and select your playlist and start a timer. Instead of choosing an alarm or alert sound, tap When Timer Ends. Scroll to the bottom and choose the Stop Playing option. Press start and done!

This timer is great for kids or yourself if you want to set a limit for playing addictive games or for bedtime. Having to unlock your phone is a good reminder that it is time to go to sleep.

6️⃣ Delete calculations with a swipe

There’s nothing more frustrating than messing up when you’re in the calculator app and you have to start over. Instead of hitting delete repeatedly, swipe back (left) as an undo.
