1. Save Battery Life (When It Is Running Low)
When your iPhone battery is running low, turning off the following settings can help make your iPhone last longer. With these off, you can still receive calls, SMS and even go online with EDGE connection.
- Settings > Wi-Fi > Off
- Settings > Bluetooth > Off
- Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Off
- Settings > General > Cellular > Enable 3G > Off
- Settings > General > Cellular > Enable LTE > Off
- Settings > Sounds > Vibrate on Ring & Silent > Off
- Settings > Brightness & Wallpaper > Auto-Brightness > Off
- Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data > Off.
2. Stop The Music With A Timer
Do you like to listen to music when getting into bed for the night but often doze off without switching the iPhone off? You can use a timer to help you shut down the music. To do this, tap on Clock > Timer > When Timer Ends. Scroll down and tap Stop Playing. Then, set a timer (say 30 mins) and tap Start. Now you may play any music and it will be turned off after 30 mins.
3. Use Headphone Cord to Take Photo
Shaky hands not getting you good photos? Well you can trigger a snapshot using the volume up or down buttons on your headphone.
4. Filter Groups That Can Reach You
The ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature allows us to silence calls, alerts and notifications when the iPhone is locked. However there are important calls that we can’t afford to miss, for example, calls from Mom or your heavily pregnant wife. Here’s a tutorial to help important groups of people reach you even in ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode.
5. Disable Messages Preview
Here is a simple way to prevent others (see: annoying dad, mom, sister, brother, best friend) from accidentally reading your incoming SMS alerts when your iPhone is left unattended. Go to Settings > Notifications > Messages > Show Preview. Tap the option and turn it off to exclude a preview of the message in alerts and banners.
