Five useful features of your iPhone that you didn't even know about
Despite how long some of us have been iPhone users, phones are now so feature rich thanks to Apple's recurring iOS releases that we don't even fully know what our gadget is capable of. BGR.
Apple launched the first iPhone 15 years ago, ushering in a new chapter in the mobile revolution and cementing the consumer hardware preeminence that will dominate for the next decade and beyond.
What's more, Apple doesn't always put a lot of emphasis on telling every single iPhone feature tucked away in new iOS releases. Some of them you either find by chance, or you manage to hear from someone or get information from somewhere else.
Here are five really useful iPhone features that you may not have known about yet, but they will all be very useful to you nonetheless. Starting with the ability to scan text on photos.
Scan photo text with your iPhone
If you're using iOS 15, open the Camera Roll. Do you see text on any of the photos you've taken that are now stored on your iPhone? Maybe it's a picture of a street sign, a restaurant exterior, or any paper with words on it. What you may not know is that you can click on the text in this image and select it to copy and paste it somewhere else.
Hide your email address
It sometimes seems like almost every website you visit asks for your email address at some point. Of course, they do this if you want to keep up to date with the site's news. However, to add a layer of privacy between you and this site, Apple has a feature available via iCloud+ that allows you to "hide" your email from the site. In a prompt where you would otherwise enter your email address, Apple should recognize and give you the option to let the iPhone manufacturer generate a random email address instead.
Apple then forwards that company's emails to that randomly generated address and then to the actual email address that Apple has for you.
Additional iPhone features
We also have a way to quickly undo something in a text box, turn off spammers, and improve FaceTime sessions. We'll quickly run through each one, starting with a quick "undo" trick.
Three fingers to undo: shaking your iPhone to undo something is pretty well known by now. But did you know that you can also simply tap a text field with three fingers to quickly bring up the "undo" option?
Enable portrait mode during FaceTime calls: if you're worried about how your interior looks before your next FaceTime call, fear not. In fact, you can use your iPhone to subtly blur the background, similar to how portrait mode does photos. If you'd like to use this feature, tap your picture tile during a FaceTime call. You will then see an option of four icons to click on. Select the one in the top left corner.
