Set Up Low Power Mode
Auto scheduling Low Power Mode will help you save memory as the mode is enabled automatically when your phone reaches a specified battery percentage value. The Low Power Mode controls background processes that prevent resources and battery drainage.
Customize Safari Homepage
You can tweak the Safari start page on the iPhone by selecting sections like Siri Suggestions, Shared With You, Frequently Visited, Privacy Report, Favorites, iCloud Tabs, Reading List, and so on. More to it, you can select and set up custom wallpapers.
Store iPhone Texts on Mac
Storing your text messages is important when you need to retain information for future projects. You can download texts from iphone to Mac using professional apps or you can screenshot text and save them as JPG on your Mac computer.
Change Safari Design
iOS 15 includes this amazing feature that helps you tweak the design of your Safari app. You can position the Tab Bar either on the top of the page or at the bottom section. The “Allow Website Tinting” option will camouflage the URL bar in the background color of the website.
Store Two Factor Authentication
Setting up two-factor authentication is essential for strengthening iPhone security. With Apple’s smartphone, you don’t have to install a professional app to store the one-time codes that you receive. The in-built feature stores the code alongside the Keychain password.
Maximize Your Privacy
Turn on iCloud Private Relay to obscure your IP address and location. No one can track your online activities, such as the websites you visit or the files you download. Moreover, you can secure your iPhone and add privacy to the data to prevent unauthorized access.
Hide My Email
The feature will require you to have a paid iCloud account. If you have one, the “Hide My Email” will let you create a separate email account for each site you visit. The advantage is that you can disable that particular account in case you start getting spam mail.
Use Siri to Share Content
Siri, your personal voice assistant on iPhone, has become smarter than ever with better sharing capabilities and contextual awareness. So you can easily share content on other devices using Siri. If the content is not in a shareable format, Siri will send a screenshot.
Capture Better Selfies
With new smart filters, Apple allows you to change the entire appearance of the images you capture. Photographic Styles gives you access to advanced filters that enable you to mute or boost colors in selected areas of the image.
Turn on Dark Mode
Enabling Dark Mode on your iPhone will enable you to use your device with more convenience during the evenings. The system-wide Dark Mode turns the interface black or gray, and you feel more relaxed while reading an article or a blog at night time.
Improve Passcode Security
For any digital device, setting up security features is a must. The improved passcode security on iPhone asks you to provide a six-digit password instead of a four-digit code. Make sure to enter an alphanumeric code for better security.
Turn Off iMessage
As we have already discussed, security is paramount. iMessages connect your phone number and email address to the Apple ID as well as Apple servers. It is advised that you stop iMessages on Apple devices in case you are not using them.
Skip Calls With Reminder
When you are busy in a meeting and not in the situation to attend an incoming call, skip the call and get iOS to remind you with a message to call back later. You can select from a variety of options to be reminded in an hour, “When I Get Home”, or “When I Leave”.
Create Custom Ringtones
The iPhone integrates innovative features that allow you to showcase some creativity. You can create custom ringtones by editing a music track from the iTunes library. More to it, create a shorter version of the ringtone, convert it from M4A to M4R and import the track.
