You don't know how to use your iPhone until you've learned these next-level pro tips. Check it out below. From taking better pictures and videos to asking Siri the names of emojis and finally, deleting that damn U2 album off your phone. Forever.
1. Fix your phone when it's frozen
Hold down the home and lock button at the same time. It will eventually turn off and charge it back up.
2. Lock your screen in landscape mode
Go to Settings > General Accessibility > Guided Access. And then slide it to the "on" position. Now go to any app and turn your iPhone into landscape mode. Triple-click the home button to enable the Guided Access screen. Tap Options > slide Motion to the "off" position and tap Resume to lock the orientation.
3. Don't sleep through your alarm
Don't hit the volume buttons when your alarm goes off. It will turn it off.
4. Zoom in with just one finger in Google Maps
Double tap screen, but hold the second tap. Then move your finger up and down.
5. Use your nose as the Touch ID
This is weird but you definitely can use your nose. Go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode and select Add a Fingerprint. Press your nose gently to the home button. You can also try other body parts too.
6. Locate a missing iPhone's owner
Press and hold the home button to activate Siri. Ask, "Whose iPhone is this?" You will get the contact information as long as the owner has set their contact info in it.
7. Siri will tell you the names of weird emojis
Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Speech, and turn Speak Selection on.
Open Notes and type any emoji and highlight it and select the "Speak" option. They all have names!
8. Make reading easier at night
Don't let the bright screens ruin your sleep. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility and under Vision, turn Invert Colors on.
9. Only allow certain people to call you at night
Don't want to be disturbed by nonsense phone calls? Then select only the few people who can contact you in the wee hours. Go to Settings > Do Not Disturb. You can set a scheduled time to silence all notifications, including calls and texts.
10. Change your camera's exposure, manually.
Tap to focus, then slide your finger up and down to adjust the exposure before you take the photo.
11. Use your phone as a TV remote
There are tons of remote apps you can download. Just do a search.
12. Use AirDrop to send a lot of photos
Use it to send media to other iPhones. It sends quicker than text or email. Turn on both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and have your friend do the same. Go to Conrol Center and tap AirDrop to enable wireless sharing.
In Camera Roll, select the photos you want to share, and then tap the share icon. It will immediately appear in your friend's Camera Roll.
13. Shoot super smooth videos
Using an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, go to Settings > Photos & Camera > Record Video at 60 FPS. This will give your videos a cinema-like effect.
14. Turn off your location tracking feature
Your iPhone knows where you have been, and it is turned on by default. If you don't want your phone to know, then go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and scroll down to System Services. Tap FrequentLocations and slide it to "off."
15. Teach Siri your name
Go to Settings > General > Siri > My Info and tell her your name.
