We wanted to show you just a few tips and hacks that make using these great little devices even more fun. Everybody wants to get the most out of their iPhones, and these little tips and tricks can help.
iPhone Tip #1
Take a screenshot.
Ever have an excellent text conversation that you want to remember? Or perhaps post to Damn You Autocorrect? Get a high score? Siri say something hysterical? Take a screen shot. It’s simple. For this tip, all you have to do is press and hold the power button and the Home button at the same time. Make sure you’re holding both buttons at the same time. The screen flashes when it takes the picture. Then it magically appears on your Cameral Roll in your Photos app.
iPhone Tip #2
Return to the top of the Page.
Do you ever scroll way down to the bottom of a page and just not want to mess with scrolling back up? Simple tip to fix: Tap the top bar where the time and battery live appear. This little tip automatically takes you back to the top of the page. Now you are a power user.
iPad Tip #3
Split Screen Typing for iPad
Just HATE typing on your iPad. Really, it is impossible. But it *would* be easier to it with only thumbs, on the iPhone. But my thumbs are damnably short! They’ll never reach to the ‘G’ and ‘H.’ Enter split screen typing. Really these Apple guys do think of everything. To work this tip, just open up your keyboard, and press and hold the keyboard button. From the Arrow Down, select split screen, and utilize your already well-developed texting skills on your iPad.
Hopefully these tips, tricks and hack can make your time with your iPhone just a little more fun, and help you to win friends and impress people.
