There are various iPhone tips and tricks that can make your life even easier. Apple iPhones come with their own big benefits that are provided by default, from security to high quality camera sensors, there are some other iPhone hacks that remain hidden. So, here we reveal top 10 iPhone hacks that you should definitely try. 

    Top 10 hidden iPhone hacks 

    1. Camera focus trick

    Taking photos with our iPhones is what we all take bliss in. But making it more focused can be a plus point. You just need to tap once on your screen to make your subject sharper and if you keep holding on it, a “AF/AE Locked” box will pop up, which means now your focus and exposure won’t change and you can enjoy clicking your photos in the set settings.

    2. Recording video? Take photos as well!

    We sometimes need to make a choice for a moment, that 'should I record it or take pictures'? Well you can do both! While recording a video on your iPhone, press the shutter icon next to the video button which will allow you to take pictures as well.

    3. Call with a single button

    Open the keypad, tap on the green phone icon and it will automatically redial the last number that you had dialed. Quite easy right?

    4. Don’t like the mess over the home screen? Hide apps

    No one actually likes the home screen filled with a number of apps and you must be having some apps which you don't use so frequently. Just tap on the app and click on 'remove app' and then choose to 'move to app library'.

    5. Be the teacher of Siri!

    There must be a number of times when your Siri pronounces a word incorrectly. But don't worry, Siri will learn, if you will teach! You need to say “That’s not how you pronounce…”. Following that, Siri will ask you for the correct pronunciation and she will quickly learn it.

    6. Snap photo with voice commands

    You can click your pictures with your voice commands too. Activate the voice controls on your iPhone from settings and then ask Siri to open your camera and take a snap. This won’t even need you to click on the snap button.

    7. Timer on music

    A lot of people have a habit of listening to songs while going to bed. But does your music go on even after that? Here is the iPhone hack! Go to the timer via clock and then 'when timer ends'. Here you need to choose the 'Stop playing' option and set the duration to let your phone play music. Once the timer runs out, the music will stop by itself.

    8. Delete text just with a good shake!

    Strange right!? You can erase something that you typed just by shaking your iPhone and then click on 'Undo Typing'. You can even redo typing in the same manner. You can even try swiping left with three fingers to delete the text.

    9. Add caption to your saved pictures and videos

    You can add the caption in your iPhone photos and videos by swiping up on it. This also helps you to find it later through search.

    10. Tired of using Safari on iPhone? Change it

    There are more options of browsers in your iPhone than just Safari. You can change your default Safari browser to other browsers such as Chrome, Firefox or more. Go to the settings, and then tap on the Default browser. Following that, click on your preferred browser's settings and set it as default.
