alexa Skip to main content presents - 11 hidden iPhone tricks you should really know about

You might have had your iPhone, or a number of iPhones, for years now, but there are still plenty of tricks that not many know about.
This is especially true since the release of iOS 11. 
So, here are a few of the best hidden iPhone tips in the new software - plus some old tricks too.

Keep up with the headlines 

iOS users can now ask Siri to give them the news - and, in response, Siri instantly streams daily news podcasts. 
Supported news sources include BBC News in the UK.
Just say something like 'Hey Siri, play some news' and you'll be up to date. You can even specify the publication you want it from, as well as the type of news you want (e.g. sport, world or business). 

This update is thought to be setting the stage for Apple's up-and-coming HomePod speakers, a long-awaited Siri speaker that is set to go on sale in February.

Apple Pay Cash

This feature was new in iOS 11.2, which was a major update compared to iOS 11.2.5, and allows you to send, request and receive money using Apple Pay. 

Fun Live Photo effects 

In iOS11, you can now swipe up on a Live Photo to choose an effect like Loop or Bounce. 

Screen recordings

Go to Settings, then Control Centre and add Screen Recording using the + button. 
Then just swipe up to the Control Centre - and there it is. You even can enable microphone recording if you 3D touch on the icon. 

Single-handed keyboard 

iOS 11 users can tap and hold down the emoji button on your keyboard to offset the keyboard to the left or right. 
This makes it far easier to type with one hand. 

Stay safe on the road

Apple's Do Not Disturb while driving is new to iOS 11 - it can sense when you might be driving and turn on automatically. 
Just go to Settings, Control Centre and Customize Controls. Tap the + button next to Do Not Disturb While Driving

Turn your phone off without the lock button

In iOS 11, you can just open Settings, tap General, tap Shut Down and swipe the shutdown slider. 

Free up storage space

In General, tap on iPhone Storage and find a few options that will help you save storage in iOS11.
For example, you can delete unused apps (while keeping the data) and move all your photos to iCloud. 

Swipe up 

If you're an iOS 11 user, you can now swipe up to access all your settings in your podcast app. 
This includes a Sleep Timer where you can set a time limit for how long you want to listen before you drift off. 

Don't get left behind

If you've got an older iOS than iOS11, you can still fall asleep to podcasts without playing them all night long. 
Go to the Clock app and tap the Timer button. When there, set the timer for as long as you want the media to play.
Then tap When Timer Ends, scroll all the way to the bottom and select Stop Playing.
Now music will stop playing when the timer runs out. 

Too many tabs

This is another old trick.
If you've found yourself with tonnes of indy100 tabs open yet again, you can either swipe left on a particular Safari tab to exit it.
Or just hold the Done button and select Close All. Neat.

Reliance Jio introduces new tariffs for JioPhone users; offers 1GB with free calls at Rs 49

Reliance Jio Infocomm (Jio) has brought in the industry’s lowest price plan for a 28-day validity, especially for its JioPhone users, in a bid to propel the sale of the 4G feature phones and add to its 160 million user base against an aggressive rival, Airtel, which has matched most of the new entrant’s offerings.

Starting January 26, a JioPhone customer can get 1GB data at ₹49 with a validity of 28 days, with voice free for life, the Mukesh Ambani-owned telco said on Thursday. This will be the lowest price plan a telco is offering in the industry, keeping the data amount and validity period in mind.

“Tariffs charged for feature phone users continue to be exorbitant, while their smartphone counterparts on Jio enjoy free voice calls and high speed data at the most affordable tariffs,” Jio said in a statement.

“The high featurephone tariffs make it impossible for them to …

Now you can book up to 5 devices now as Jio resumes pre-booking in India

An overwhelming demand for JioPhones in India forced the company to put a hold on new bookings until the first round of pre-booked phones were delivered. And the great news is that Reliance Jio is now accepting pre-bookings for JioPhone again, which only means Reliance Jio has accomplished the feat and it's ready for the next batch of JioPhones orders. Reliance Jio's home page displays a banner that says, "Come on India. Join the movement. Get your effectively free JioPhone." The timing of this couldn't be more fitting as it's just days after the new telco announced its Rs 49 tariff for JioPhone owners. The banner mentions "Unlimited voice & data at Rs 49 for 28 days" bundled with the JioPhone to attract customers. The so-called "India ka Smartphone" is now available for pre-bookings, and buyers are no longer limited to just one handset per customer. When we tried ordering the JioPhone, it gave us the option to add up to 5 devices on a…
