Enable Two-Step Verification

As one of the major concern we are facing with the Smartphone is the security. You will use the Apple ID for everything to do with Apple such as shop on the iTunes Store, enable iCloud on all our devices, buy from Apple’s Online Store and lots more, so it is highly recommended that you enable two-step verification for your Apple ID to increase the security of your account, to prevent you account from getting hacked.

Increase or decrease text size

If you want to adjust the text size on your device for easier reading, then go to Settings and navigate to Display & Brightness > Text Size and adjust the slider to change the text size base on your preference. Please note that apps that support Dynamic Type will only adjust to your preferred reading size.

Make and receive iPhone calls from your iPad

With iOS 8, you can receive or make a phone call even from your iPad thanks to the new Continuity feature, as long as they’re on the same Wi-Fi network and are signed in to the same iCloud account.

Quickly Insert Punctuation

Many users tend to tap on the “123” key to view the list of numbers and symbols to pick. Once done, they tap on the “ABC” key to revert back to the alphabet keyboard to continue typing. You can do this a lot more quickly by tapping and holding the “123” key, and swiping on the keyboard to the punctuation mark you need in one single swipe action. Once you select the punctuation or symbol you want to add, release your finger, iOS will automatically revert back to the alphabet keyboard. So this saves you the hassle of switching between keyboards.

Quickly Change Domain Name Extension

The Mobile Safari browser comes with a handy .com key for users to easily suffix the domain name extension to the URL in the address bar. You can also use this key to add other extensions like .ORG or .NET. To do this, tap and hold the .COM key to view the alternate extensions to pick from. Interestingly, this list will also include specific country-code extensions if you have the corresponding languages added to your International keyboard list.

Use a Split keyboard

If you find it uncomfortable to type on iPad, then use the split keyboard, which makes it much easier to type with your two thumbs. You can type with a split keyboard, which can be either at the bottom of the screen, or undocked and in the middle of the screen.

Attach media from the mail compose window

The Mail app doesn’t give a direct button to insert attachments from the compose window, but if you long tap in the compose text field, you’ll see an option to insert a video or a photo (you’ll have to tap the right arrow to see the option). When you tap that, you’ll see the standard photo picker from where you can choose a photo or video.

Show and hide Inbox in Portrait mode

If you find it a pain to keep jumping between Inbox and email in portrait mode in the Mail app, then you will be happy to know that there is a quicker way to show and hide the inbox. While in portrait mode, simply swipe right from the left edge of the screen to bring up the inbox. You can swipe back to the left to hide it again.

To close a tab, tap on the tab button at the top right corner or pinch with three finger to view all the open tabs, then just swipe a tab to the left or tap on the x button to close a tab.

You can also reorder tabs by tapping and holding on a tab, and moving it to the place you want it.
