You should take advantage of the tricks that we are going to tell you below to get the most out of your iPhone, as some of the things you are going to read are sure to have gone unnoticed.

The iPhone and the iOS operating system are the perfect combinations and that is why it is the most popular device of its kind in the world.

The software is full of useful functions that all of us who own a device of this type use often and that help us to better spend the day to day.

But there are also tricks that are not so well known or that are directly a little hidden, which could be very useful so that, in this way, we get the most out of the Apple terminal.

And that's where we come in, as we want to show you how you can take better advantage of this terminal with a series of hacks and tricks that you should try so you can make the full potential of the iPhone come to light, although some things are quite simple.

Adjust the brightness of the flashlight

We've all used the iPhone's flashlight at some point when the lights go out in our house or if it's nighttime and we don't want to wake up the people who live with us.

What many do not know is that we can regulate the intensity of the flashlight, something that can be extremely interesting. 

To do this we enter the iPhone Control Center (sliding up and down on the right side of the screen) and hold down the icon of the flashlight, to realize that there are four levels of brightness. It only remains to slide down to reduce the brightness.

Volume buttons to take a picture

We will be able to use the volume buttons to take a photo, as it may be more natural and comfortable for some users than using the shutter button.

If we want to use these buttons for burst photos, we must go to Settings, then Camera, and here activate the Volume up button for burst.

This way we will get that by holding down the Volume Up button we will be able to take a burst.

Fun effects

In the messages, we already know that we have at our disposal different additions to make communication more fun as emojis, stickers, or memes.

In the Messages app, you can also add effects to texts, something that not many users do.

  1. The first thing to do is to select an existing Messages thread or compose a new one, filling in the recipient field. 
  2. Now we write the message in the Text message field.
  3. After that, we should press and hold the blue Send icon to see the available effects. 
  4. We will have message bubble effects or other effects on the screen like confetti, balloons, or fireworks.
  5. To select a message bubble effect, we tap the Snack, choose the effect we want, and then hit Send. 
  6. To use a screen effect, tap on Background, select the one you don't like by swiping the screen to the right and then press the Send icon.

Hide applications


If we want to have an application, but don't want others to be able to see it if they pick up our mobile, we can always hide it from the home screen.

On the iPhone home screen, we press and hold the application. Then we select Remove application and in the next window we select Remove from the home screen. 

What this will do is that this app is only in the applications library, where we can go if we slide to the left, to get to the last page of the home screen.

Scientific calculator

The calculator we have on the iPhone may seem simple at first, but what not many people know is that it can be transformed into a much more complete one, that is, a scientific one.

The first thing is to make sure you have the Portrait Orientation Lock disabled in Control Center. 

Then just go into the calculator and rotate your iPhone to landscape orientation to access the scientific calculator.

Notifications at a certain time

Many may have the problem of notifications l appearing on the iPhone every other time, which can mean that it does not allow us to focus or concentrate on the task at hand.

To solve this problem, we can set the iPhone to receive notifications only at specific times.

We go to Settings, then enter Notifications and hit Scheduled Summary. Now, we enable Scheduled Summary and activate the applications from which you want to receive scheduled notifications, setting the summary time.

Full page screenshot

When we talk about capturing a full page, we mean the whole page in its entirety, not just what you see on the phone.

For that we must do the following:

  • First, we go to the website we want and make sure it has loaded completely.
  • Then we take a screenshot (volume up + power button).
  • Now select the Full Page tab.
  • Now click on OK and save.

Voice-over while recording the screen

When we use the screen recording function, the system sounds are recorded without any problem. 

If we also want to do the same with the voice, we only need to do the following:

  • Go to the Control Center and press and hold the Screen Recording icon.
  • Tap the Microphone button to turn it on. 
  • With this setting, we will record the sound of the environment, which allows us to speak while we are recording the screen.

Taking pictures while recording a video

  • This is such an easy trick that you might not even realize it.
  • When you are recording a video you can take pictures at the same time if you press the white button next to the red one that is active during recording.

Nature ASMR

For those who like ASMR, with this trick you will have it assured even if the Internet connection does not work.

To do this we must do the following:

  • We go to Settings and click on Accessibility.
  • Now we select Audio/Visual inside Audition.
  • We give in Background Sound and then in Sound. Here, we can choose between Pink Noise, White Noise, and Brown Noise. Ocean, Rain, and Stream for an ASMR of a relaxing nature.

Freeze screen

It may be that we show someone on the iPhone a photo or a document. Well, we can make the screen not slide to ensure that it looks good and only what we want.

To achieve this we must take these steps:

  • We go to Settings, then Accessibility, and select Guided Access.
  • Then we activate Guided Access and select Code Settings.
  • We click on Define code for guided access and set the one we want. We recommend that it is different from the lock code of the terminal.
  • Now, to freeze the screen of our iPhone, we press the side button three times if we are on an iPhone X or higher.

For an iPhone 8 or earlier model, we press the Home button three times.

The iPhone will be our measuring tool

Something that many people ignore is that we can use the iPhone to measure length, width, and height, thanks to an application called Measurements.

Just point your iPhone at the element, making sure that the white dot on your screen moves to the starting point of the measurement, and then tap on the Add icon.

We then move the iPhone so that the white dot also moves to the end point of the measurement. Again, tap the Add icon. 

It only remains to click on the measurement to view it in centimeters and inches.

Surely some of these tricks you did not know, so you will be able to serve for many facets of which we find in the day-to-day.

If your iPhone with iOS already has a lot to offer, after knowing these hacks and tricks, you will surely get much more out of it.
