Understanding How To Properly Use Your Iphone

Do you wish to do some cool things on your iphone, but you don’t know how? Fortunately, you will learn how to do just that and much more in the article that follows.

To dry a soaked phone, use rice. There are many ways you may get your phone wet, such as puddles or toilets. Wipe off your iphone and then place it into a rice-filled bag. Leave it there overnight, and in almost every case, it will be fine in the morning.

Whenever a new update is available for your iphone, take the time to install it. Updates to your phone protect your phone and should be installed as soon as possible. That also requires you to save images and critical data to your computer. This way, should something occur with your phone you are going to have a backup.

An iphone can act as your GPS. If you try the map feature with the GPS when searching for directions, you can locate the best route to your destination and even find gas or shops along the way. This can also be bookmarked so that you can go back to the spot that you were at.

Sleep/wake Button

In the event that your iphone freezes and it is not revived when you press the Sleep/Wake button, you can do a hard reset to get things back in order. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home key at the same time. The phone will shutdown and restart in order to signal everything went well.

The iphone OS should be upgraded to the most recent version. Given the complexity of the phone and operating system, these updates may contain security patches, bug fixes and other important tweaks to boost functionality. If your phone contains personal information or you access the Internet with it, then regular updating is necessary.

You can take photos using your iphone without having to keep your phone steady. Your headphones incorporate volume buttons and these can be used for this purpose. Just get your camera set up how you would like it to be for the image. Just press one of the buttons that are on the cord when you want to take a picture.

If you’d like to hear a sound each time you press a character while texting, turn keyboard clicks on via your iPhone’s sounds section. That way, you will know if the phone is picking up on your typing, thus reducing your own errors.

When using Safari on your iphone, you don’t have to key in the “.com” extension when you want to visit a site. Typing “Amazon” in the address bar will cause the Amazon page to load.

Don’t go overboard when installing new apps. There is a huge number of different apps for your iphone. Some are free, and some come with a cost. However, there are a few to look out for that could get through the approval process, so be wary of any that get very bad reviews.

Sleep/wake Button

Do not panic if your iphone freezes. Use the Sleep/Wake button as the first remedy. If that fails try pressing the home button on your iphone along with the sleep/wake button. That will reset your phone, but then it will power up again in just moments.

Battery management apps are a great iphone tool. There are many varieties available, each with features for letting you know what percentage of battery you are using on each task and how you can get more from your battery. Many will also alert you when you should calibrate, so you are always getting accurate readings.

Your iphone can be used for sending pictures to all your close acquaintances. You can do this in two ways. First, you can achieve this by adding it to an email from your saved images, or you can upload it onto Facebook.

Use FaceTime when communication with friends and family. This gives you the ability to have a live conversation with the person in video form. If you’d like to use it, all you have to do is access your contacts, and select the FaceTime button. Select that feature and you will soon hear and see another person.

Now that you know more about an iphone, you should know more about all of its functions. Understanding the operations of your iphone will make it a more useful tool for you each day. Take this knowledge to get more from an iphone.
