These tweaks will change the way you use your Apple device.

There’s a lot more to iOS than you think. They can help you customize your experience and increase your productivity, in addition to resolving annoyances. So, if you still think you’re not getting the most out of your iPhone, check out our comprehensive list of top hidden features of the iPhone.

With a single button press, charge your phone faster

There are few things more frustrating than watching your phone charge slowly. To get a faster amount, turn on Airplane Mode. This will turn off background noise on your phone (such as random alerts and GPS roaming), which will deplete the battery as it charges. While the additional juice won’t be significant, a little goes a long way.

For the future, make sure you know these tips for extending the life of your smartphone battery.

Quick Search(es)

Do you need to access a website quickly? Here’s a quick way to do it:

You can save a few seconds by holding down the full stop button on your phone’s keyboard while inputting the web address into Safari, which will show up a list of URL endings. The most frequent suffixes (.com,.au) are available, as well as some less common ones (.edu, .org). Speaking of keyboard hacks, your iPhone’s keyboard also has a concealed mouse.

hidden apps and features on iPhone

iPhones love keeping a secret! There’s a lot that Apple users don’t know about their iOS devices.

Discover What Information Your Phone Has About You

Look at this: Every move you make is being tracked by your iPhone. Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations to see proof. You’ll be able to know where you’ve gone and how much time you spent there. Isn’t it creepy? Fortunately, you can disable the feature by selecting ‘Clear History’ and then swiping left on the Frequent Locations tab.

Don’t forget that Facebook is tracking you as well. Make sure you know how to use these methods to regain control. Multi-finger gestures are supported in more places than only photos and web pages. You can also use more digits to clear out your iPhone’s junk. If you need to quickly close many applications for completely legitimate, non-honest reasons you can drag three fingers up on the multitasking menu to clear the clutter. That means in double-quick time; your phone should be snappier.

Handsfree Pictures

It’s a stale hack but a good one. Using your iPhone’s volume control buttons to take a picture saves your meaty paw from blocking the screen while you try to use the touchscreen controls. But what if you want to be even more remote from your camera’s shutter controls? The same effect can be achieved by pressing the volume button on a pair of suitable, connected headphones.

Restrict App Access To Save Your Data

You’re only a third of the way through the month, and your monthly data allocation of 2GB is already looking a little thin. You don’t have to limit your Netflix viewing on the fly, though. Rather, choose which apps are relegated to the Wi-Fi-only B-list. Go to Settings > Mobile Data and choose one app at a time to make the key decisions.

Locate Hidden Apps

Have you ever hidden apps and found it difficult to retrieve them? With these procedures, you can also learn where hidden apps on the iPhone go and locate them. Here’s how you can do it:

  •       On your home screen, scroll to the right (as far right as you can go)
  •       At the top, you’ll see a search bar with “App Library” in it. Tap that search bar
  •       Scroll to find the app you hid, or type the name of it into the search bar
  •       Once you find it, tap it, hold it, and drag it to the left. This will bring it out of the app library and back onto the home screen
  •       Place it wherever you want, and you’re done! The app is back on the home screen until you delete it or hide it again.


Over the years, iPhone hacks have been commonly unpopular. This blog has taken action to reveal these features to iPhone users. Whether using the latest or stale, the hidden hacks apply to everything.
