Full iPhone course that covers:

Enable The “Speak Selection” Feature. One of my favorite hidden iPhone features is the ability to have Siri read highlighted text out loud. This feature is known as “Speak Selection.” You can enable this feature by going to the Settings app > General > Accessibility > Speech > toggle on Speak Selection.

Make The LED Flash Blink For Alerts. In case you want more of an alert upon receiving phone calls or text messages other than sounds and vibrations, there is a way to get the LED flash to blink as well. You can set this up by going to Settings > General > Accessibility. Under the “Hearing” section, there is an option that says LED Flash for Alerts. When you open this menu, there are two toggles: one to turn on the feature and one to use LED Flash for Alerts when the ringer switch is set to silent.

1. Change The “Respond With Text” Defaults

2. Clear App Memory. Sometimes it may feel like your iPhone has been slowing down. This could be potentially fixed by clearing the app memory. You can do this by holding down the Sleep button until the Slide to Power Off slider appears. When the slider appears, you will need to hold down the Home button until your iPhone goes back to the home screen again.

After your phone is returned to the Home screen, the apps have been cleared out of memory. This should make your device feel faster.

3. Close All Tabs Open In Safari. While browsing the Internet in Safari, sometimes you might not realize that you have opened up way too many tabs. Fortunately, there is a way to close all of the tabs in one go.

If you want to close multiple tabs in one go, then you simply need to push down on the tabs button at the bottom-right of the screen. Then you will see two options: “New Tab” and “Close X Tabs.”

1. Enable The “Speak Selection” Feature. One of my favorite hidden iPhone features is the ability to have Siri read highlighted text out loud. This feature is known as “Speak Selection.” You can enable this feature by going to the Settings app > General > Accessibility > Speech > toggle on Speak Selection.

After you enable “Speak Selection,” a new option will appear when you highlight text to have the content read out loud. This feature can be especially useful if you want to have an iBook read to you. This also works for text that you highlight on a website.

5. Find Keywords On A Website Using Safari. Sometimes when you are viewing a website, you might be looking for a specific keyword similar to pressing Ctrl + F on a Windows machine or ⌘ + F on a Mac.

Fortunately, there is a way to find a keyword on Safari on iOS by typing in the word on the address bar and then scrolling down to where it says “On This Page (x number of matches).” And then when you tap on that result, you will notice the Find Keyword bar at the bottom of the website.

6. How To Charge Your Phone Very Quickly. In case you need to quickly power up your device, then you may want to consider putting it in Airplane Mode temporarily. While in Airplane Mode, your device could still be connected to Wi-Fi. But incoming cellular phone calls would not work and you will not be able to connect through cellular data.

2. Make The LED Flash Blink For Alerts. In case you want more of an alert upon receiving phone calls or text messages other than sounds and vibrations, there is a way to get the LED flash to blink as well. You can set this up by going to Settings > General > Accessibility. Under the “Hearing” section, there is an option that says LED Flash for Alerts. When you open this menu, there are two toggles: one to turn on the feature and one to use LED Flash for Alerts when the ringer switch is set to silent.

8. Open The Bubble Level Tool. Many of you already know that there is a level tool built into the Compass app. You can find the level tool by swiping to the right when you open the Compass app.

Once the Compass app is in level mode you can tilt it up and down while holding your device in landscape mode. This can come in handy if you are hanging up a frame on the wall.

But did you know that there is also a bubble level tool? If you are holding your device in portrait mode and move it up and down while the Compass app is in level mode, you will see a bubble level to determine if your object is perfectly horizontal.

3. Take Photos As You Are Recording A Video. Did you know that you can take photos as you are recording a video without switching camera modes? You can try this out by going to the video mode of the camera app and recording a video. As you are recording the video, you will notice a white button on the corner. Every time you press that button, a photo will be taken as you record the video.

10. Shake to undo. This one can be a little awkward at times but it can be a bit of a life saver.

If you’ve just typed a long sentence and accidentally deleted it, or made some other catastrophic error, you can give your iPhone a shake to bring up the undo/redo dialogue box.

Just make sure you’re holding on to your iPhone tightly before you shake it!

11. Secure text messaging.
