Well You’ve had your iPhone devices for quite some time now and like some of us, you are only starting to the latest master features like Touch ID and Live Photos. While some tricks seem obvious at this point for those who have long been loyal Apple customers such as clicking the volume button to take a photo, chances are, there are plenty of other things your smartphone can do that you have no clue about.  With every OS update, we are all introduced to even more features that our iPhones are capable of doing, like going into Night Shift mode before we go to bed. This means there will continuously be something new to learn about your phone. I will let you know 13 awesome iPhone tricks/hacks you probably had no idea existed, with a walk through on how to use them.

#1  Shake Away The Mistakes: So ever wondered If you make a mistake, all you have to do is shake your iPhone. Seriously, this really is a hack. Say you made an error typing or when editing your selfie. Simply shake your phone side to side and a window will pop up asking if you want to undo the action. There you go. Easy and simple undo option.

#2 Hide your private photos: Our friends or colleagues may ask to see photos from a major life event, and when you open the Photos app, you suddenly feel like exposed. Avoid anyone else accidentally looking at your private photos by using this hack for iOS 9 to hide them. First of all Open the Photos app and then tap on “Select” and check the photos you want to remain on your device but away from stranger`s eyes. Once you have them chosen, tap on the share icon and then tap on “hide” at the bottom as displayed in the picture. The photos will still appear in Albums, but will now be removed from Moments, Collections and Year.


#3 Teach Siri How To Speak: Siri can sometimes get cheeky with you, depending on what you try to ask this great digital assistant, but besides her distinct humor, she is usually perfect and spot-on when it comes to bringing up your answers and searches. However, sometimes, Siri can’t pronounce certain words correctly. You can teach her how by telling her, “That’s not how you pronounce” and whatever word she misspoke, she will bring up options that you can play to make sure she is pronouncing the word right.

#4 Customize Keyboard Shortcuts: Speaking of shortcuts, did you know that you can customize your keyboard to automatically bring up specific phrases when you are typing? If you type a shortcut like “FOMO,” your iPhone will expand into the word or phrase that you enter like displayed in the below picture. Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Text Replacement, and tap on the plus sign to add a new phrase and shortcut.keyboardshortcut_theplanetofgeeks#5 Charge Faster: You can charge your iPhone three times faster by just doing this simple step. Your smartphone will charge significantly faster if you turn on Airplane mode when charging. Swipe up and tap on the airplane icon to turn on this mode.

#6 Group Notifications By Apps: You might be too busy to attend to every notification your iPhone alerts you about, leaving you with a long list of them by the end of the day. Some apps, like Facebook or Instagram, can hog up your notifications tab, as you just ignore them all and tap on the “x” until there is nothing left to see.
You can actually group like notifications together when they come from the same app. Do this by going to Settings > Notifications > Group by App, and toggle it on. Now, your notifications will all be organized.group_notification_theplanetofgeeks

#7 Automatically Turn Off Music Before Bed: if you enjoy listening to soothing music to help you fall asleep, or want to catch up on the latest episode of your favorite podcast before you drift off, you can actually use your phone’s timer to automatically turn the media off. Open the timer (swipe up to quickly access the icon), set your timer, and tap on “When Time Ends.” Scroll all the way down and tap on “Stop Playing.” The music will then turn off after those 15 or however many minutes.turnof_music_theplanetofgeeks#8 Clear RAM in just 10 Seconds: IT Guru Marc Forrest tweeted out a trick that had everyone skipping with joy.
