Discover What Your Phone Knows About Your

Your phone constantly gathers data on you- from where you are to what apps you use the most. This data can be used to improve your smartphone experience, and it's important to know what is being collected. Go into your settings menu and find "Privacy." Under this menu, you can see which apps have access to your location, contacts, calendar, photos, etc. You can also see what data is being collected by your phone itself. This is important to know to make sure that your information is safe and secure.

Charge Your iPhone Faster By Pressing A Single Button

If you need to charge your iPhone quickly, a secret button combination can help. First, hold down the "Home" and "Volume Up" buttons until the Apple logo appears on the screen. This will start up your phone in recovery mode, and it will begin charging faster than usual.

Secret Messages In Messenger

Messenger is a great way to communicate with friends and family, but sometimes you may want to have a secret conversation in messenger. To do this, open up the chat window and tap on the "i" icon in the top-right corner. Then, select "Secret Conversation." This will make your messages encrypted and only visible to the people involved in the conversation.

Get More Out Of Your Battery By Tweaking Your Settings

One of the biggest complaints about smartphones is that the battery doesn't last long enough. If you're looking to get more out of your battery, there are a few settings you can adjust. First, go into your "Display" settings and turn down the brightness. You can also turn off features like "Location" and "Wi-Fi." If you don't need to be constantly connected to the internet, turning these off will help save battery life.

Correct Siri's Pronunciation

If you're not a fan of Siri's pronunciation of words, there is an easy way to correct her. Say, "that's not how you pronounce [word]," and she will give you the correct pronunciation. You can also add new words to her dictionary by saying, "add [word] to my dictionary." Siri can also be a great personal assistant for phone calls. If you need to make a call but can't find your phone, say, "Siri, call [person]." She will dial the number for you. You can also ask Siri to read new text messages aloud by saying, "Siri, read my messages." This is a great way to keep up with new announcements without checking your phone constantly. If you're running late for an appointment, Siri can help you out by creating a quick reminder. Just say "Siri, remind me to [task] at [time]," and she will add the reminder to your calendar

How Long Your Have Been Waiting For A Reply

If you're waiting for a reply to a text message, there's an easy way to find out how long you've been waiting. Swipe left on the conversation in the Messages app, and a timestamp that shows when the last message was sent will appear. This is a great way to gauge how long you should wait before sending another message.

Cast Your Phone Screen To A TV

If you want to watch a video from your phone on a bigger screen, you can easily cast your phone's screen to a TV. All you need is a Chromecast or Apple TV, and you can be watching your favorite videos in no time. To do this, open the video you want to watch on your phone and tap the "cast" icon. This will send the video to your TV, where you can watch it on a bigger screen.

Bring Back Lost Notifications

If you've missed an important notification, there's a way to bring it back. In the Notification Center, swipe down from the top of the screen, and all of your recent notifications will appear. If you see a notification that you missed, tap on it, and it will open up the app associated with that notification.
