7 most hidden features of iPhone
The best part about the technology is that a lot of the handiest tools are not intuitive to discover. iPhone is one of a good example of the same.





Even if you have used an iPhone for years, there are some features you may never have discovered.

Some of the tips are hidden because you have to dive into the settings to turn them on, like the quick way to turn your iPhone into a magnifying glass.

Charge your phone faster with a single button press

Tired of waiting for your phone to recharge? Well, 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.





Replace a toolbox essential

You've probably filed away the Compass app alongside the Stocks and Find Friends apps in a folder entitled 'Crap I can't delete'. You should pull it back out, though - as it's got a secret second function that will help with your DIY duties. No: not using your iPhone to hammer in nails (although it can - briefly - do that too). Instead, swiping left in the Compass app brings up a very useful spirit level - a digital bubble gauge than can check if that shelf really is level.

Create custom vibrations

Ever wished you could tell who's calling just by how your phone feels buzzing against your leg? Now you can: In Contacts, select your person of choice and hit Edit. Here you'll see a Vibration option. Selecting this will give you plenty of options, including the Create New Vibration tool. Making your bespoke buzz is as simple as tapping the screen to the beat of your choice.

Close three apps at once





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 your Music on a timer

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 3 am 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.

Improve your device battery life





Spotlight, Apple's connected quick-access for key data and services, is great for offering instant access to the latest breaking news, sports scores, and social update. But that much stuff going on in the background can eat your battery life whole. Unless you turn off Spotlight features for certain apps to eke out more life per charge, that is. 'How?' we hear you cry? Just go Settings > General > Spotlight Search and limit what's pulling in data behind your back.

Use your phone like an etch-a-sketch to erase


You might have already stumbled across this one in a fit of rage, but like your childhood etch-a-sketch, your recent iPhone activities can be erased simply by giving the thing a good ol' shake. Perfect for the plump of the finger and poor of spelling, who want to skip the endless backspace bashing with a firm handset rattle. And if you're shivering rather than shaking? Don't worry: a pop-up will ensure you want to delete before erasing your typing.
