iPhone Tips & Tricks

  • Tired of the same old 4-digit passcode? Go to Settings > Passcode and turn off Simple Passcode. This will allow you to use as many numbers as you want in your passcode.
  • Listening to a song on Safari? Double-click the home button, go to music controls, and press play. It also works on the lock screen.
  • To set a sleep timer for your music, toggle the clock app > timer > “When timer ends” > “Stop Playing > Start timer. Enjoy your music.
  • Hang up a phone call and lock your screen at the same time by simply pressing the lock button.
  • Do you have hundreds of unread emails that you don’t feel like opening? Reset the new message counter by clicking Edit > select first message > hold down mark button > Mark as Read
  • If you type a number incorrectly into the calculator, don’t hit clear! Simply swipe left on the display and the last digit will be erased.
  • Hitting the call button on an empty dial keypad will bring up your last call. Just hit call again and you’ve got redial!
  • JAILBREAKING: Jailbreaking your iPhone allows you to customize settings that are previously not editable. To do this:
    • First, back up all your data. Go to Settings > iCloud > Backup and select “Back up now”
    • Disable the passcode. Go to Settings > Passcode
    • Turn on airplane mode
    • Download Pangu 1.1 and iTunes 12
    • Once downloaded, open Pangu
    • Plug your iPhone into your computer
    • When Pangu recognizes your phone, select “Start Jailbreak”
    • Click “Already did”
    • Tap the Cydia icon to prepare the file system

 

**Jailbreak at your own risk**
