Top 3 Apple iPhone 7 Life Hacks You Never Believe

25 July 2017 | Aaron Tam

Some of these hidden Apple iPhone features are guaranteed to blow your mind away. They may even save your life!

The legendary Apple iPhone 7 features impressive specs that set it apart from its rivals. There are tons of secret functions you never believed existed. This is why you must master them fully in order to embrace the true Apple lifestyle. (As die-hard Apple fans, you ought to know them). Thankfully, there are some essential tips that help you get the most from your favorite Apple iPhone 7. Here are some of the best cunning shortcuts to make your life easier like never before.

How to Transform Your Keyboard to A Trackpad

It is understandably tedious and annoying to type an email message. This becomes more frustrating when you have to go back and forth through your message. Tweaking your email has become a tricky affair. However, Apple gives you a hidden or secret feature into the virtual iOS keyboard to sort your problems out.

On your smartphone screen, moving and poking the cursor on a precise spot can often be a challenge. Instead of doing that, you should try pushing on the keyboard. When this happens, your iPhone 7's 3D Touch screen will register this firm press and you will notice that the keyboard has turned blank. Now, try swiping around the keyboard without lifting your finger. You will see a cursor moving around the screen. This allows you to position it wherever you like.

The touchpad feature enables you to highlight blocks of text. All you need to do is ease off the pressure (without lifting your finger completely) and push again. As a result, the current word underneath the cursor will be selected. You can move the cursor around to highlight more or less text. Thanks to this life hack, you now compose any email message effortlessly as you would on a computer or laptop.

Make Your iPhone Flash Whenever You Get Notification

If you have the nasty habit of missing important notifications, you may realize that you must do something before you get accused of being involved in mysterious hanky-panky. Your solution? Make your iPhone flash when something warrants your attention. With this life hack, you can make your iPhone's camera flash ping on and off until you attend to it.

Head to the iPhone's setting menu and activate the notification flash feature. From there, click General, and Accessibility. You will notice the LED Flash for Alerts entry (just tap it to activate it). Be mindful of any upcoming notifications. Take note that your iPhone's battery life will be drained if it continues to flash.

How to Find Out Exactly How Long You have Been Waiting for A Reply

It is incredible to see how obsessed we have become with messaging. We are all guilty of checking our smartphones endlessly for a text reply. We constantly wonder how long it has been since we sent our message. Your iPhone 7 offers a way to find out.

Just swipe in from the right-hand side of the screen when you are in a messaging thread. Immediately, you will be shown precise delivery times for every message sent and received. Now that the cat is out of the bag, you can continue pondering why it takes so long for the other person to reply you back. Although this is not as deadly as the WhatsApp's blue tick, you can still experience the same effect though.
