One of our favorite features is the ability to spy on girlfriends iPhone and track your iPhone even if it’s turned off. This can be really helpful if you lose your phone or it gets stolen. Another great feature is the ability to change the size of text used in specific apps. This can be really helpful if you have trouble seeing small text on your screen. We hope you enjoy reading this blog post and learning about all of these hidden features!
Get Real-Time Precipitation Alerts From The Weather App
When Apple acquired the popular weather app Dark Sky, I immediately hoped that the official iPhone weather app would include real-time rain and snow warnings, because I had become accustomed to utilizing them on my personal Android phone. In iOS 15, these notifications will make their debut, frequently arriving a few minutes before Dark Sky’s because I’m OK with it.
Once you’ve installed iOS 15, go to the Weather app and select the three-line icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. You can also enable new precipitation warnings by opening the Weather app, then tapping the three-line symbol in the bottom right corner of the display. Next, tap the circle icon with three dots in the top right corner of the screen and then Notifications.
Tapping Done will confirm the alert settings. Tap to slide the switch next to My Location to On and then tap Done. You may enable alerts for each one if you add additional cities to the Weather app.
The next time it’s about to rain or snow, your iPhone will notify you a few minutes before it begins. You’ll also get an alert when the rain is soon going to end.
Track Your iPhone Even If It’s Turned Off
If you lose your iPhone or it gets stolen, you can track its location as long as it’s powered on. But what if the thief turns off your device?
In iOS 14.0 and later, there’s a new feature called Find My that helps you locate a lost or missing device even when it’s turned off. The next time your device is turned on, Find My will send its location to Apple so you can see where it is in the Find My app.
To use this feature, sign in to iCloud with your Apple ID and turn on Find My iPhone. Then enable Send Last Location. When your battery level gets low, your device will automatically send its current location just before it powers off. You can also manually trigger this feature by going to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services and tapping Send Last Location.
Use Your iPhone’s Camera To Scan Text
If you need to scan a document or capture some text from a book, you can use your iPhone’s camera instead of a scanner. Just open the Notes app and tap the + icon in the top right corner of the screen. Then select Scan Documents from the menu that appears.
You will see a viewfinder on your screen. Hold your iPhone steady and position the document within it. When you’re ready, tap the Shutter button to take a photo. The text will be automatically recognized and added to a new note. You can also tap Edit in the top right corner of the screen to crop or rotate the scanned document.
Translate Text From Anywhere On Your iPhone
If you need to translate some text, you can now do it directly from your iPhone without opening an app. Just select the text and tap Translate in the pop-up menu that appears.
You will see a translation of the text in your preferred language. Tap Done to dismiss the translation. You can also tap Listen to hear a pronunciation of the translated text. This feature is available in iOS 14 and later.
Drag And Drop Between Apps On The iPhone
In iOS 11, Apple introduced a new way to move data between apps using drag and drop. This feature is available on devices with Touch ID or Face ID. To use it, just press and hold on an item, then drag it to the other app.
For example, you can select a photo in the Photos app and drop it into an email or document. Or you can select some text in a web page and drop it into a note. You can also use drag and drop to move files between apps on your iPhone and iPad.
Change The Size Of Text Used In Specific Apps
If you find the default font size in certain apps to be too small or too large, you can now adjust it without affecting the system-wide font size setting. Just go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Text Size and adjust the slider for each app that you want to change.
More Information Is Available About Your Photos
In iOS 14, you can now see detailed information about each of your photos. Just select a photo and tap Info in the top right corner of the screen.
You will see EXIF data such as the date and time the photo was taken, the camera used, and the shutter speed. You will also see a map showing where the photo was taken if GPS location data is available.
Send Your Icloud Data To Someone Else If You Die
If you use iCloud to store important data like photos, documents, or contacts, you can now specify that this data should be sent to someone else when you die. This feature is called iCloud Transferring and it’s available in iOS 14.0 and later.
To set it up, go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud and tap the iCloud Transferring switch. Then enter the email address of the person you want to receive your data.
When you die, your iCloud data will be transferred to this person’s account. They will then be able to access it from their own device.
This feature is a great way to ensure that your important data is not lost when you die. It’s also a good way to share data with someone who is not an Apple user. You can find more information about this feature in our article on iCloud Transferring.
As you can see, there are many hidden features of the iPhone that you may not be aware of. These features can come in handy in many situations and make your life easier.
