No doubt, an iPhone is one of the most popular and talked about handsets in the world! From its camera to security features, all have been loved by its users. It is, of course, quite pricey, but you get plenty of features to gloat about. In fact, there are so many of them that an iPhone user may not even be aware of them. However, these features can certainly make the owner's tech life simple. In the search for these features on the iPhone, we came across a Reddit thread where users themselves revealed their favourite iPhone features. Here's the list of the top 5 iPhone features:

Hardware mute switch

If you have the constant habit to keep your phone silent, then you can't imagine the value of this feature. But the iPhone's hardware mute switch with a colour indicator can easily tell you if your phone is on silent or will disturb the whole room during an important meeting. Sadly, most the Android device users are missing out on this feature.

Tap at the top bar and see where you are!

A good long article must keep you busy reading till the end, but going back to the top of the page seems like such a chore! But thanks to the iPhone, there is a short cut. Once you tap on the top bar of your window, you will quickly get back to the starting of the page - just one click.

Notes app has a doc scanner too!

Many users don't know about it and end up downloading other applications to scan their documents. But the iPhone's Notes app has been preserving the document scanner for you since years! All you need to do is to use it. It's like one destination for your multiple needs. You can make notes as well as scan important documents and cards.

Hide My Email

Yes, you heard it right! But don't worry this is a new feature that just got updated with iOS 15 and most people aren't aware of this. Hide My Email allows you to share a "burner" email account with any organization that requests your address, and it then securely passes all messages to your primary inbox. If you like, you can keep your true email address hidden from every company you want to deal with. Isn't that great?

Your iPhone is precious!

You bought an expensive iPhone and, even after years, it still holds good value. How, its resale value stays higher as compared to other smartphones or tech products. Of course, if you keep your device in a good condition to resell it after years of use, you can still get a good percentage of its original cost back. Though it's not a feature but a good point to remind you that your iPhone holds much monetary value, even after years of service!
