Hidden iPhone Tricks That Will Make Your Life Easier

Scroll Up With One Tap

If you’re scrolling down a webpage and want to return to the top, tap the top center of your screen next to the front-facing camera. This tap will pull you back to the top. 

Stop Typing Your Full Email Addre

Head to Settings and tap on General. Tap on Keyboard, and then tap on Text Replacement to add whatever suits you. I might suggest: – Using “eml” to expand into your full email addre

Hide Photos From Snooper

To hide a photo, tap on one (or select a few) and then tap the share icon—a box with an arrow pointing up. Scroll down until you see Hide and select that option. 

Delete Old Screenshot

While tapping on the Albums section in the Photos app and scrolling down to get to Hidden, you may have noticed other types of media that the app automatically separates out for you 

Quickly Lock Your Phone for More Security

If you’re worried about being compelled by authorities to unlock your phone with biometrics, there is a way to disable Face ID and Touch ID quickly. For iPhone 8 and later, press and hold the button on the right and either of the volume buttons at the same time for about two seconds. 

Pin Messages From Friends So They Don’t Get Lost

Within Messages, if you tap and hold on a group or individual message a few choices will pop up, including Pin. Select that and that message thread will get stuck on the top, above all the other messages 

Rearrange the Home Screen in Seconds, not Hour

Similarly, if you want to organize your home screen layouts, you can move whole screens of apps without moving individual icons.
