You probably aren’t aware about loads of iPhone tricks that exist in your phone, and here are 4 of the most obscure ones that can make a world of a difference.
Recently, a TikTok techie named @katamogz revealed a bunch of lesser-known iPhone tips that make using your device that little bit easier. Among the tips she revealed, here are four that will help you quite a bit!
Screenshot A Webpage
Yes, you can take a screenshot of your entire webpage without having to keep scrolling and taking pictures. To do this, first, you’ll need to take a screenshot by pressing two buttons simultaneously. From there, tap Full page at the top of your display and tap Done to save the entire page as a PDF.
Custom Message Effects
What you already might know is sending someone a special trigger word over iMessage can activate each effect. For example, typing “pew pew” activates a laser effect, for instance, while “happy birthday” causes balloons to float around the screen.
But did you know you can create a custom screen effect using a combination of whatever emoji you like? All you need to do is type out three or fewer emojis and then hold the send button (that’s the green arrow to the right of the textbox). Tap Screen at the top of your display to send them with a full-screen effect. Tap Send.
Send Links Via Siri
Did you know, you can ask the iPhone’s voice assistant Siri to send web links to your pals? Well, it’s a whole lot easier than copying and pasting a link into iMessage or other chat services.
While looking at a web page on your iPhone, simply say “Hey Siri, share this with [name]” (or something similar like “send this to [name]”. Siri will share the content on the screen to that person using iMessage.
You can mute notifications in a second via your lock screen. To stop an app from sending you alerts for a while, swipe left on a notification on your lock screen and tap options. You can then select to mute notifications for that service for an hour or the rest of the day.
