9 hidden features to make maximum out of your iPhone

9 hidden features to make maximum out of your iPhone
Apple continues adding the new feature to iPhone and iPad with every single update in the form of iOS updates. Some of these updates are very clear to users as those are highlighted by Apple while releasing it, but some of them are hidden deep in the settings.

Today in this article we are going to talk about the 9 hidden features for the iPhone users which will help you get the maximum out of your device.

Give Facebook the Finger

Facebook can be a total time suck when it comes to productivity. You open it to make a quick post, and 25 minutes later you, you realize you've just looked through all your ex's recent vacation photos. By pressing extra hard on the Facebook app icon, 3D Touch can help you avoid the News Feed and simply write a post or upload a photo.

Make the Camera a Snap to Use

Even though smartphones put cameras in everyone's hands, it can still be hard to capture the moment. Using 3D Touch on the Camera app icon pulls up a quick action menu that vaults the camera into the selfie, video, slow-motion or plain old photo mode with only one tap.

Stop Apps from Being Downloaded

We've all been there, held hostage by a trickle of Internet bandwidth while a massive app tries to update itself. Previously you had to dive deep into the App Store to put that download on hold. With 3D Touch, pausing a download is as easily as prodding the app icon. And not only can you cut the install short, you can also tell your iPhone to download one particular app first — a lifesaver when you've got a screen full of updates hogging all your data.

Watch Your Widgets

Pushed to the forefront of iOS 10, widgets are small versions of apps made ready for quick viewing. In Apple's newest operating system, they're typically found by swiping the home or lock screen to the right — something that confused many iPhone fans used to "swipe to unlock." But widgets can also be found by using 3D Touch on the icon of many apps. This can be a time saver for those moments when you want a quick to peek at information. Try it out by pressing the Weather icon extra hard, and rather than opening the app fully, you'll see the Weather widget.

Be a Major Netflix Player

The heart wants what it wants — unless the Netflix algorithm tells you that you want something else. To stay focused while pulling up your latest binge-watching series, push the Netflix app icon a little harder than usual. This will pull up a quick action menu that can catapult you into your list of favorite shows, display trending videos, or let you pick up your most recent program right where you left off.

Nix Your Notifications

3D Touch and Apple's notifications are a potent mix of information. The "peek and pop" capability of the feature lets users quickly dive into alerts that flash on their screen without losing their place on their phone. But you can also use 3D Touch to push all your notifications out of the way – you just need to know what button to press.

On the Notification panel (swipe down from the top of the screen), you'll see an "X" button. When pressed, this button will clear your recent alerts, but when pushed harder, it gives you the option of deleting all the notifications on that panel. It's a great way to keep your phone tidy.

Be a Speed Deleter

Many iPhone users know that by holding down the delete button on a paragraph of text, eventually, the cursor moves faster as it gobbles up unwanted words. But if you give the backspace key a little bit of pressure, it will delete unwanted text even faster than before.

Shoot Through Your Settings The iOS Settings app is packed full of various system preferences so much so that it's difficult to find what you need in there. But by using 3D Touch on the Settings icon, users will find the big four battery, cellular data, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth all easy to access with a quick action menu available from the home screen. Just press down and tap on the one you want, and presto, you're in control of some of your iPhone's most important capabilities.

Take Control of the Control Panel

Swiping up from the bottom of your iPhone's home screen brings the Control Panel to the forefront. (It's the place you go to put your iPhone in airplane mode or turn on the flashlight.) Pressing harder on the Flashlight, Timer, Calculator, and Camera buttons reveal a bunch of options for fine-tuning your phone. For instance, you can set the torch to a dimmer setting, set a one-minute timer without opening the clock app, quickly copy the figure on the calculator, or pull the camera up in video mode without all the extra taps.
