10 new iPhone tricks you’ll use all the timeJuly 5, 2020
Yes, your iPhone came with a user guide and there a ton of how-to videos on Apple’s site and YouTube. But who has the time? You’ve come to the right place.
Did you know that you can record your iPhone’s screen? It’s better than a screenshot that only gives you a still photo. Tap or click here to find out how to record your screen.
What about Apple Notes? The unassuming digital organizer is capable of a lot more than you realize. I use it as a document scanner all the time. Tap or click for five of my favorite uses.
Your iPhone contains countless features you probably aren’t using.
1. Dim your iPhone with low light mode
If you’re using your phone in a dark room or the screen is merely too bright, you can turn to low light mode. This can dim your screen brightness more than the standard settings allow.
To enable it, tap Settings > Accessibility > Zoom > Zoom Region > Full Screen Zoom. Return to the main Zoom menu and tap Zoom Filter > Low Light. Return to the main Zoom menu and toggle Zoom on.
Double-tap with three fingers to zoom out and restore the full screen. To access low light mode quickly, triple-tap the screen using three fingers or triple-click on the home button. Select Choose Filter to adjust or disable the light filter.
2. Organize your cards in Apple Wallet
With COVID-19, you really don’t want to use a touchpad at grocery stores. Using the Apple Wallet in your phone, you can store your credit, debit, prepaid, and store cards for easy touchless payment.
Open the wallet app and your cards stack on top of each other. The top default payment method is Apple Pay. To change it, tap your finger on the card you want to be your default payment method and drag it to the top of the stack. Easy!

3. Respond to messages with a tap
A Tapback lets you respond or “react” to a message quickly with emojis — no need to hit send. Just double-tap or hold a message while in the Messages app. You can select a heart, thumbs up, thumbs down, !!, ? or Haha.

4. Delete calculations with a swipe
There’s nothing more frustrating than messing up when you’re in the calculator app and you have to start over. Instead of hitting delete repeatedly, swipe back (left) as an undo.
5. Adjust Calendar start and end times
When you add an event or edit an existing one in Calendar, time increments are by default set to five minutes. You can, however, change it between one and five-minute increments easily. To adjust the “Start” and “End” times, double-tap on either the date or time scroll wheel.
