6 deeply hidden iPhone shortcuts that will blow your mind

iPhone X

You Might be using the iPhone for 10 years, but you will agree that you might not be knowing all the shortcuts and features available on your iPhone.

Apple releases the new version and improvements in iOS continuously, which keeps on increasing the features of your iPhone and other devices.

In this article, we are going to talk about the 6 deeply hidden iPhone shortcuts, which will make your day more easy with your iPhone.

Close all Safari tabs

It's possible (but not practical) to close all your Safari web browser tabs by swiping them away.

But if you've got dozens of tabs open, it'll take you an age – and you'll probably miss a few swipes too.

Instead, simply hold the overlapped squares icon in the bottom right-hand corner.

A pop-up will appear asking if you want to close all tabs – hit yes, and you're done!


Clear all notifications

If you've got loads of notifications on your homepage, it can be very tricky to clear them.

You can view them or swipe them away, but neither are particularly practical.

If you own an iPhone 6S or later, you can use 3D Touch – which is Apple's nickname for pressing hard on the screen.

Find the X icon in your notification center and press hard on it, and you'll be able to clear all notifications.

Sadly, the X generally only appears if you've got carried-over notifications from the day before. If there's no X, you can't do this trick.

Re-open closed Safari tabs

We've all done it: you're getting rid of tabs and you accidentally bin an important one.

Don't fear – there's an easy way to make your iPhone restore any closed tab you like.

First, press the overlapped squares in the bottom right-hand corner of Safari.

Then hold down on the + icon at the bottom of your browser.

That will pull up a list of all the tabs you've closed recently, giving you a chance to restore them.


Delete lots of photos easily

So you want to delete a bunch of photos? Well you better get used to hours of tapping individual pics to select them.

If only there was a better way – and there is!

Go into your Photos app and choose Select in the top right-hand corner, just like normal.

Then, simply drag your finger from left to right across a row.

That'll highlight the entire row, rather than individual pictures, making it much quicker to get rid of photos in bulk.

Open links in new tabs much quicker

Want to open a link in a new tab? You'd usually hold your finger on it until you get a pop-up asking what you want to do.

But Safari has a neat little gesture that lets you do it very quickly.

Simply tap on the link you're trying to open with two fingers instead of one.

This will open it in a new tab, leaving your current tab open too.

Convert currencies very quickly

You probably don't use it much, but Apple's Spotlight search feature is very powerful.

To find it, swipe down from the top of your Home screen (or swipe left to right on an iPhone X).

Then tap into the bar and type whatever currency you want to convert – so 200 USD.

It'll automatically convert the $200 US dollars into your local currency (so Pound Sterling, if you're a Brit) with no added faff.
