6 Hidden iPhone Tricks That Will Change Your Life 

iPhones are a staple of most of our lives. They have improved our lives in so many ways. Imagining a time before iPhones (or rather, a smartphone) is seemingly impossible.

Here are tricks you absolutely need to know about to save more time, money and effort. 


1. Airplane Mode to Charge Twice Faster

If you put your phone on airplane mode, it will charge twice as fast. Try it when you’re traveling, it’s really time-saving.

Now, we all stop hogging the powerpoint all night!


2. Dial an Extension Automatically with the Phone App

The Phone Number Pause feature in iPhone allows you to tell your iPhone to pause after calling a number and then dial another number. So, let’s say you are calling a friend in company “X.” The company telephone number is 6123456 and your friend’s extension is 789. Using this option, iPhone will first dial 6123456, pauses until the call is answered, and then dial 789 automatically. To use this feature just tap and hold the star button ”*” after the first number. A comma will show up. Add the second number to dial after the pause.



3. Google Maps as a Free GPS

Save cash with this tip!
While traveling abroad, you can use Google Maps as a free GPS without an international data plan.
While offline, simply zooming to a map area you want in the maps app, and type “ok maps” into the
search box. This data will be available even when you do not have data connectivity.
This is due to the fact that GPS does not utilize your data plan.

4. Stop Music with Clock

Love to fall asleep to your favourite playlists, and yet you do not want your battery to drain away
throughout the night? Here's a solution. 

You can stop music playback after a certain time. This is especially helpful if you like to fall asleep to music, but not wake up to it. Go to the Clock App, then Timer, and set the duration. Select the option “Stop Playing” When Timer Ends.


5. Check Recently Closed Tabs in Safari

On the iPad, when you press and hold the + button for new tabs in Safari, you get a list of recently
closed tabs. With this, you will never have another panic attack from accidentally closing the wrong tabs again!


6. Delete/Recover the Last Digit with Swiping Across with Calculator

If you wish to delete or recover the last digit you inputted, simply swipe across the readout
from left to right, or vice versa. No more multiple recalculations, just because of a single wrong digit.
iPhone's calculators aren't that bad afterall!
