5 Tips & tricks for iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 plus
The most waited and talked Smartphone is now a reality and many of you are the proud owner of the device, yes I am talking about none other than iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus. The iPhone 7 is already making headlines with some of its more controversial design decisions, such as removing the headphone jack, but there is still plenty to get excited about.

The device is best ever till date Apple has launched and it has awesome, we have gathered five tips to make maximum out of your awesome device.  

Take a picture without unlocking

iOS 10 allows you to access your camera without having to unlock your phone, which is perfect for capturing those great photo opportunities. Just swipe right to left on the lock screen to instantly bring up the camera. This will still keep your existing photos safe, though, and you won’t be able to access any other apps. The iPhone 7’s camera has been improved with more resolution and greater zoom, too, so you’ll be able to take even more stunning photos.

Using headphones while charging

The iPhone 7 takes away the headphone jack, which has definitely drawn a few comments, but there are ways around the problem this causes when you want to charge your phone and listen to music at the same time. The simplest solution is to use wireless Bluetooth headphones, but you can also get an adapter that turns one Lightning port into two, like this one from Belkin, so you can stick with your favourite wired headphones.

Don’t drop your phone in the bath

The iPhone 7 is now water resistant, but what does that actually mean? The standard of protection offered by the iPhone means it can survive being dropped in the bath for around 30 minutes, but it doesn’t mean you should be keeping it in your bathing suit when you go for a dip. Water damage can still happen, and the phone will need to dry out before you can use it. The protection against water getting in can decrease over time, so you should still be careful with completely submerging your phone.

Send secret messages

If you want to send something private or sensitive, you can use the new iMessage invisible ink setting. This means when the recipient gets the message they will need to tap it to read it, so no one looking over their shoulder will be able to see what you’ve sent. The message will also be covered up again after a few seconds to keep it safe. Just tap and hold the send arrow until the options come up, and then tap ‘invisible ink’ when you send a message.

Get more on the lock screen

iOS 10 allows you to do all sorts of cool things with the lock screen. Swiping from left to right will take you to a new page of widgets giving you all sorts of info such as weather, messages, and reminders. All the most important information is now in one place and at your fingertips, and the screen will automatically turn on when you pick up the phone. To get to all your apps, you just need to press the home button to unlock your phone.
