10 Hidden iPhone Tips Apple Never Told You
Today, we’ve got a fresh new batch of hidden iPhone tricks for you and we guarantee two things: first, you will definitely learn something new from today’s list even if you’re an iPhone expert. And second, you’ll find some fantastic hidden tricks on this list and use at least a few of them all the time.
The tricks on today’s list all revolve around 3D Touch, a flagship feature Apple introduced with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus last year, and also included on this year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It’s a very nifty feature that lets the iPhone respond differently to touches depending on how much force is used, but there’s a downside: There’s absolutely no indication of where 3D Touch works and doesn’t work in iOS, which is why posts like this one are so useful.
With that, here are some hidden 3D Touch features you should definitely check out:
01. Press firmly on Apple’s iOS keyboard to turn it into a trackpad that controls the cursor
02. Press firmly on the left edge of the screen and swipe toward the center to open the app switcher UI
03. Did you know how to swipe at all? Just press more firmly and the app switcher will pop open
