15 Things You Didn’t Know Your iPhone Could Do

Oh iPhone, how you are loved. Your elegant beauty and simple, yet lovely, user interface. But you are holding out on us, hiding away little secrets. Well, I’m unveiling them. Accept your fate.

Anyway, yes, some of you may know some or all of these, but the majority do not. For those people, I present to you 15 things you never knew your iPhone could do.

1. Passcode with letters instead of numbers

1. Go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock.
2. Turn off the setting that says “Simple Passcode.”
3. A screen will appear prompting you to change your passcode, along with a full QWERTY keyboard. The next time you unlock your phone, the keyboard will appear instead of just the number pad.

2. Siri can read your e-mails to you

Tell Siri, “Read my email,” and she’ll oblige. You’ll hear the sender’s name, the date/time of the message, and the subject line.

You can also instruct her to “read my latest email” or ask, “Do I have email from [person]?”

3. Time stamps on texts


For a while, the fact that I couldn’t see when my iMessages were sent drove me crazy. Turns out there’s a stupidly easy way to view time stamps of your messages in iOS 7: touch and drag message bubbles to the left.

4. Find out what planes are flying above you


Ask Siri, “What flights are above me?” or just say, “Planes overhead,” and she’ll pull up a chart featuring each plane’s flight number, its altitude, and its angle. (It took my Siri about 30 seconds to pull up this data, so be patient!)

5. Shake to undo and redo texts

Did you change your mind about that text you just tapped in? Shake your phone, and an “Undo Typing” box will come up. If you change your mind after you’ve hit Undo, shake your phone again for a handy “Redo Typing” box.

6. More detailed calendar


Turn your phone horizontally when in your calendar app to see a more detailed view of your appointments.

7. Double tap the shift key for caps lock


This is so simple to do, yet totally changed my ability to CONVEY HOW EXCITED OR MAD I WAS to my friends without having to hit the shift arrow every time.

NB: If this isn’t working for you, go to Settings>General>Keyboard and make sure Caps Lock is enabled.

8. Use your phone as a level

Swipe left in the Compass app to access a level. Pretty cool.

9. Turn off in-app purchases


This is especially useful if you have kids, or have zero self-control when it comes to Candy Crush. Go to Settings > General > Restrictions, Enable Restrictions, and scroll down to disable In-App Purchases.

10. Burst photos


Hold down the shutter button in your camera and you’ll automatically activate burst mode. Your phone will capture a ton of photos in rapid succession and save them to your camera: a great way to guarantee you’ll get a profile pic to your liking.

11. The em-dash exists


Hold down the dash on your keyboard to get a super-cool menu of dashes, which you can use to please all your grammar stickler friends.

12. Shoot a photo with the volume button


Instead of using the touch circle to snap your selfie, hit the “up” volume button. It lets you hold the phone — and camera — more steadily.

13. Use your Apple earbuds


Press the center of the headphone button when in the camera app to snap a pic. Also great for selfies!

14. Custom vibrations


In your Contacts app, you can enable different vibration patterns for different contacts. This is particularly handy if you keep your phone in your pocket, so you can distinguish hands-free between a pesky email from your boss and a fun text.

15. Airplane Mode = faster recharge


Great for when you need to charge your phone quickly at a bar.
