7 tips for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to make maximum out of it
Some of you may be the proud owners of the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. We are saying proud as they are one of the beautiful device made by Apple till date.

The new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus obviously come with newer, shiner hardware and faster internals, but there are some less obvious tricks they're capable of performing too, tucked away beneath their gleaming exteriors.

Today in this article we are going to talk about the seven tips and tricks that will help you get maximum out of your device, so let’s get started.

Lock Your Lens for Video Recording

It’s no secret the iPhone 7 Plus dual camera setup gives users up to 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom when taking photos. This feature is also applicable when it comes to making home videos, although it’s limited to 2x optical and 6x digital zoom, which requires some automatic switching from the wide angle to the telephoto lens on your dual-eyed iPhone 7 Plus.

To prevent the inevitable flicker that lens switching will give, you can lock your lens by heading into Settings > Photos > Camera >Record Video, and choose to Lock Camera Lens. This will prevent you from going below 2x zoom if you start recording from a 2x zoom. That means no ugly judder when you play back your epic snowboarding video.

Access the camera from the lock screen by swiping left

Up until iOS 10, users had to swipe up in order to launch the camera straight from the lock screen, but in iOS 10, you can no longer do this. To open up the camera straight from your lock screen you now need to swipe left.

3D Touch More

3D Touch isn’t new, but it has more useful features than ever before. 3D Touching the Settings icon, for example, gives you the ability to jump quickly into Wi-Fi, cellular data, and battery options without having to scroll through Settings’ many facets. You can also 3D Touch the flashlight icon in the Control Centre to choose your light intensity.

Another very useful 3D Touch feature is the one which lets you prioritise app downloads. If you’ve started mass downloading a bunch of apps after a trip to the App Store and you’re dying to get into one more than the others, 3D Touching the app in question allows you to download it first.

Access your widgets pane from the lock screen

While they've been around for a couple of years, iOS widgets were not that well implemented in earlier iOS version. This all got changed with iOS 10, which introduced a new widget pane that is accessible by swiping all the way to left on your home or lock screens, where Spotlight search usually resides. Of course, you can enable, disable, and switch the places of all available widgets.

Prevent spam calls
With iOS 10, you can now keep spam callers away by blocking their numbers. In order to do so, you will need to download an app from the App Store, which will identify potential spam calls and save you from these. One of the more popular one is Hiya; you can view your spam-blocking apps by going to Settings > Phone > Call Blocking and Identification.

Convert Memories into slideshows from your pictures

Arriving alongside iOS 10 is a neat addition to the Photos app, dubbed Memories, which scans your library and essentially creates thematic movies from the hundreds or thousands of photos you might have. It's a neat feature, though not that major. In order to see said movies, head to the Photos app and hit the Memories icon on the bottom bar. You can edit your memories by adding or removing pictures, trimming any included video clips, changing the music track that plays in the background, and so on.

Shot RAW

With iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, Apple made something that many fans of mobile photography have been lusting after for a long time - the ability to snap RAW images and develop these later with an app on the iPhone or a desktop computer. This will undoubtedly improve your photography game greatly, provided that you know what you're doing. However, you can't do this with the stock camera app - you will need a custom camera app to shoot in RAW.
