The iPhone is a truly marvelous device. Its photography quality, processing power and operating system all combine to improve the quality of its users’ lives phenomenally. The iPhone 11 brought a whole new level of user power and pleasure. Still, you may not be aware of some of the iPhone’s subtler features. That is why we have put together this list, to help Apple fans make the most out of this leading technology.
Siri the Radio DJ
You may not know all of Siri’s functions, but this service is definitely one to get familiar with. Please keep in mind that this feature is mostly limited to iOS 13, bringing a whole plethora of radio stations, all at your voice’s command. Simply ask Siri to play your favorite radio station! Her channels range from domestic to international. Rock out to heavy metal or bop your head to the latest pop hits.
Deciding who Can Disturb You
While we all need to occasionally disconnect from the world with the “Do Not Disturb” iPhone function, it is wise to give a few select people permission to contact you. This can be a life-saving decision when someone is trying to contact you in an emergency.
Stop Sharing AirPods
While many people will gladly hand you one of their AirPods so that you can both enjoy a song or video together, some will be less than happy to get earwax on their peripheral. To avoid these awkward rejections, make sure to keep a spare set around with you, which can then be paired to another device.
An Appropriate Dark Mode Setup
The edgier iPhone users finally had their morbid wishes granted when iOS 13 introduced the perpetual Dark Mode setting. While you may enjoy the benefits of a limited Dark Mode, an example being reading through email at night, you might not want it on all the time. You can save your eyes from the inappropriate lighting while still reaping the temporary benefits of Dark Mode by scheduling its usage in the “Display & Brightness” setting.
Improve Your Typing Speed
One of the features which Apple was delayed in bringing to the iPhone users’ benefit was one-handed typing. Yes, it is possible, iPhone users! The feature is called QuickPath, which allows you to efficiently swish your finger along with your keyboard. You’ll quickly find that this function allows you to not only type much faster, but a lot more accurately, making fewer spelling errors.
Barring Unwanted Callers
Whether someone is trying to sell something to you, a robot caller is on the prowl, or you just don’t like the idea of strangers contacting you, voicemail is here to be your iPhone guardian. You can now enable an inbound call setting which automatically sends unidentified callers to your voicemail.
You don’t have to worry about important calls being misdirected. Siri will ensure that numbers attached to emails which you interact with will be let through, as well as numbers which you have personally dialed.
