8 iPhone tips and hacks that will blow your mind
We all know that iPhone opens up lots of possibilities for their users. Even if you have not upgraded to new shiny iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, your old iPhone has got the capability of exploring the new things.

There are dozens of cool iPhone features hidden beneath the surface that you probably weren't even aware of - and not just the knowledge that cat litter can bring your phone back from a watery death. Today we are going to share some of the cool and the best iPhone hacks you didn't know about, and exactly how you can find them.

Charge your iPhone fast

If you are the person who loves to do things fast, just like me then charging your iPhone must be the biggest huddle as it takes a lot of time to charge. This tip is valid for those as well who wants to juice up the battery fast before leaving office or home.

So, if you are also tired of waiting for your phone to recharge, then there is a way to speed up the re-juicing process, and it's surprisingly simple - just engage Flight Safe mode. By knocking out all your phone's Wi-Fi-searching, data-draining communication skills, it takes the strain off your battery while it's being powered up. Not hugely, true - but if you're pressed for time and looking to eke out every bit of juice, that extra 4% you'll add in 30 minutes connected to the mains could make all the difference.

Know what your Phone knows about you!

We have lots of dependencies when it comes to our Smartphone, we use our device daily for the different purpose and explore many things around us, and we want that no one should know about that.

So if you are also one of them who don’t want to show your personal data to others than be careful, slightly sinisterly, your iPhone is always gathering data on you in the background - be it the apps you're using the most, how much data you're churning through... or even, most creepily, where you are. To see what we mean, head to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations. Here you can see not just where you've been, but how long you've spent in each place.

Lock your focal point of your iPhone camera

We all know that tapping the screen while taking a photo will set the camera's point of focus, right? Good. Annoyingly, though, every time you move the camera after picking a focal point, it disappears. Well, no more. Instead of just tapping the screen, press for a second or two until an 'AF Locked' box pops up. Now you can twist, turn and swing the thing around without losing focus.

Correct the Siri- pronunciation

Hoping that you use Siri on your iPhone and iPad (if not we would recommend you to start using now) you will agree with me that it’s a great feature iOS device offer. But the biggest problem with Siri is the pronunciation, so if you are also suffering from the pronunciation problem of Siri then keep reading.

Siri's a bit of a smug know-it-all - so there's nothing better than calling it on its cock-ups. Like when it mispronounces peoples' names like an ignorant Brit abroad. So if Siri says something wrong, just tell it. Following up a mistake by saying "That's not how you pronounce…" will see Siri ask for the correct pronunciation then let you check it's got things right. Because we all know it's Levi-O-sa, not Levi-o-SAR.

Close three open at one Go

It's not just pictures and web pages that support multi-finger gestures. You can throw additional digits into clearing up your iPhone clutter too. If you need to shut multiple applications in a hurry - for totally innocent, not hiding anything, honest reasons - you can drag three fingers up on the multitasking menu to cull the clutter quicker. Which means your phone should be snappier in double-quick time.

Set Timer for Music on iPhone

Enjoy listening to a little soothing background music as you drift off to the Land of Nod? Then you're probably all too familiar with waking up at 3am to some unwanted tunes. Unless, of course, you set your music to turn off on a timer. In the Clock app, slide along to the Timer options. Here under the 'When Time Ends' tag, you can switch out the alarm option for a 'Stop Playing' tag. This will turn off the tunes, be it through Apple Music or Spotify when the timer hits zero.

Click the best short without touching your phone

An oldie but a goodie iPhone hack is using your volume control buttons to capture a snap - thus saving your meaty paw blocking the screen as you attempt to hit the touchscreen controls. But if you prefer to be even further removed from your photo-capturing shutter controls? Hitting the volume button on a pair of compatible, connected headphones will have the same effect.
Swipe write to go back, just like back button of Android

For iPhone-owning Android converts, living without a dedicated back button can be a difficult adjustment to make. While the iPhone might not have an ever-present command to put things in reverse, there is a simple way to head in the wrong direction. Within a number of apps - from Safari to Mail, via Messages - swiping from left to right on the screen will send you back to the previous page or menu. Who needs a dedicated button when you've got a more elegant solution?
