Awesome iPhone features
Your iPhone is jam-packed with features that make your life easier. Steve Jobs planned it that way by emphasising “rationality and functionality” from the very beginning, according to Smithsonian Magazine. But its cool features go far beyond the obvious, and chances are, you’re not even scratching the surface of all the amazing and totally unexpected things your trusty little companion can do. We’re about to change that with this comprehensive list of iPhone tricks you won’t know how you ever lived without. You’re welcome!
Use your iPhone’s Measure app as a spirit level
The Measure app isn’t just for measuring things. It also has a spirit level feature that will come in handy for DIY projects at home. Since a spirit level measures how parallel or perpendicular something is to the ground, it can help you hang shelves or place works of art evenly over your mantel. Simply open the app and choose the Level option to the right to activate it.
See where you’ve been
Having trouble remembering when you did something? Have no fear—your iPhone has been tracking your movements since you first activated the phone. If you need to pinpoint the day you went somewhere special or even remember the date of a trip to the hospital, this information can be useful. Go to Settings, then choose Privacy. Within the Privacy section, go to Location Settings. Scroll to the bottom, select System Services, and then find your Frequent Locations. Prepare to be amazed to see the list of all the places you have visited and how frequently you’ve been to them. While this is super useful, it is also a little disconcerting when you really think about it.
