8 Secret iPhone Hacks That Will Definitely Make Your Life Easier

There are plenty of tips and hacks surrounding the iPhone that you probably weren't even aware of. We list down some of the best iPhone hacks you might not know existed and how you can utilise them. 

1. Lock Your Camera's Focal Point

Taking a picture can be a tedious task especially when the camera keeps restarting the point of focus. Annoyingly, every time you move your hand, the camera loses its focus of the subject and you have to do it all over again. Well, there is a way to work around this annoying feat. Instead of tapping the screen like a lost baby, you can long press the screen for a second or two until the ‘AF Locked' text is prompted. You can move your hands as much as you want but the camera will not lose focus of the subject anymore

2. Turn Read Receipts Off For Specific People

To manage it, go to the Messages tab  on the iPhone —> tap on the conversation —> tap on the Info icon “i” in the upper right-hand corner —> Toggle Send Read Receipts off or on, based on your preference for that person.

Try to keep a consistent bedtime and get the sleep you need by setting up the new Bedtime alarm in iOS 10 - it'll prompt you to go to bed and help ease your waking up with soothing alarms. Read in bed? Turn Night Shift on to automatically shift the colours in your display to the warmer end of the spectrum after sunset. You can always set Night Shift right from Control Center with a quick swipe up on your display

6. Know Where To Look For Your Signal And How To Improve It

 You no longer have to run around like a headless chicken on the road to find the sweet spot where you get good network signal. Type *3001#12345#* into your iPhone's dialer and hit call to launch the hidden Field Mode tool. This changes your bar into a single detector and the data is reflected on your phone in a form of a chart. If your signal is -50, then you can probably watch a video on YouTube without any hassle. If your signal strength is -120, then you need to go a different location as you won't even be able to send a text. 

7. Charge Your Phone Faster

The iPhone can take a long time to charge, especially the iPhone 7 Plus however there is a swifter process for charging your phone. Switch on the Flight Safe mode, which disables all connections that drains battery life and it, takes off a lot of strain on your battery. This might not make a huge difference if you compare it to fast chargers, however that additional 10% charge before you head out makes a lot of difference.

8. Search anything on Spotlight 
Spotlight search is available from anywhere within iOS 10. Briefly, pull down from the top of the screen while on the Home screen in any app, and you have access to everything Spotlight offers: searching for content on your device, shortcuts for common tasks, and suggestions for content from the Internet. Spotlight now presents recent searches as suggestions before you type, making it easy to get back to the things you were looking for last.
