You don’t have to be a computer expert to use an iPhone®. The ubiquitous device completes many actions with the simple click of an icon or an effortless audio command. However, even an iPhone expert can benefit from a few tips that might not be common knowledge to them just yet. The iPhone repair and computer service specialists at Compute in Russellville, AR, share a few hidden features of your smartphone.
4 iPhone Features You Should Know
1. Halt Location Data
It might not come as a huge surprise to learn that your iPhone is constantly gathering information about you at any given time. That includes your location. Fortunately, you can control this setting and prevent the phone from cataloging your location by navigating from Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Significant Locations. Here, you can see your locations and turn the feature off.
2. Create Custom Vibrations
In addition to customizing ring tones, you can also create a custom vibration that alerts you when a specific person calls. To activate this feature, head to Contacts and select a person. Click Edit > Ringtone > Vibration > Create New Vibration. Record your vibration and save the result.
3. Time Your Music
There’s nothing like relaxing at night and listening to your favorite music as you drift off. The downside is that it’s not very practical since you can’t control the length of the music—except you can. Head to Clocks > Timer > When Timer Ends > Stop Playing. This puts a stop to the music whenever you set the timer to end.
4. Write Custom Replies
The iPhone has several generic responses that pop up when someone calls. If you can’t answer, click one and the phone will text the caller that you’re busy. Naturally, these built-in messages aren’t very personal at all. You can make them more “you” by navigating to Settings > Phone > Respond With Text. Then, type in a few replies of your own. They’ll show up the next time someone calls and you can’t answer.
