If you are an iPhone user, there are some great hidden tricks that you may not know about. These tricks can make your life much easier and help you get the most out of your device. Here are 7 hidden iPhone tricks that you didn’t know earlier.

Remove Apps From the Home Screen (Without Deleting Them)

You will have the choice to Delete App or Remove From Home Screen in a dialog box if you long-press on an app and then choose Remove App. The symbol won’t disappear from your home screen, but it will remain in the App Library (swipe left until you reach your App Library). You can always do the opposite to subsequently put it back to a home screen. Press and hold the app while you locate it in the App Library to select Add to Home Screen.

To begin, each player is assigned a role: a secret agent or a VIRUS double agent.

You’ll continue to pass around the device to learn more information about all of the players. At the end of the round, players will vote who to imprison. If a double agent is chosen, the service members win. If not, VIRUS is victorious.

Use the keyboard as a trackpad

Did you know the keypad on the iPhone can also function as a trackpad? With this function, you won’t need to tap the screen to move the pointer more precisely or navigate to certain passages of text. You’ll need an iPhone with 3D Touch functionality (iPhone 6S or newer) to utilize it, but you can use it on any iPad as well.

To use the trackpad on an iPhone, firmly press and hold anywhere on the keyboard. When the keyboard goes blank, you can start working. Next, move the pointer around the text by dragging your finger. To engage trackpad mode on an iPad, drag two fingers across the keyboard in either direction.

  1. Start the clock app on your iPhone
  2. Tap on Timer tab located at the bottom of the screen
  3. Choose the length of time
  4. Tap on When Timer Ends.
  5. Scroll down and tap Stop Playing.

Receive notifications via camera flash

Accessibility may be found under Settings; press it to activate the feature. The LED Flash for Alerts toggle switch should then be set to “on” in Audio/Visual. You can instruct the flash not to activate when the phone is in silent mode if you’d prefer not to be bothered at all. Make sure no one believes you are taking a photo of them while you are out and about when using this iPhone camera trick, as it has nothing to do with taking pictures.

Silence Unknown Callers

Getting a lot of automated calls? There is a quick iPhone hack that enables you to block incoming calls from unknown numbers. Go to Settings > Phone and select Silence Unknown Callers. Any number that is not in your contact list, Siri suggestions, or recently called list will go to voicemail if that setting is enabled. You’ll receive a silent notification when a call is hushed, and you may check the caller’s number in your Recents list. If you must allow unauthorized callers to use your phone line, you should truly use a backup number obtained from a second SIM card or VoIP burner account.

Organize Notifications

On the main Settings panel, choose Notifications to categorize your notifications. App-specific groups of notifications can be changed for each app. You can decide, for instance, to have each message appear separately. Navigate to Notifications. Choose an app, then decide how you want the notifications to be displayed.

Measure objects with your iPhone

If you need to measure something and don’t have a tape measure or ruler handy, your iPhone can come to the rescue. Using Apple’s built-in ARMeasure app, you can quickly and easily measure objects just by pointing your camera at them.

  1. Launch the Measure App
