Two hidden iOS features you need to know

If you are an iPhone user, you are probably using your mobile phone in a certain way - just the way Apple wants it. But if you search you can find some hidden iOS features that allow you to browse the applications much faster. We have identified these hidden functions and we present them to you below.

iOS Apple

The first of these features is AssistiveTouch.

AssistiveTouch is an accessibility feature and what it does do is display a small menu on your screen (which you can simply move with your finger), giving you a quick access in a variety of functions. With AssistiveTouch get access to menus and controls that require the so-called "onscreen gestures", such as: Control Center, Notification Center, Spotlight, toggle applications and Speak screen.

There are three ways to enable AssistiveTouch:

  • press Settings> Accessibility> Touch> AssistiveTouch, and then turn it on AssistiveTouch
  • press Settings> Accessibility> Accessibility Shortcut and then press AssistiveTouch
  • Tell Siri: “Enable AssistiveTouch"

You can customize the AssistiveTouch by going to Settings> Accessibility> Touch> AssistiveTouch and then clicking the Customize Top Level Menu. You can display up to eight icons, so it is incredibly flexible.

It's an amazing shortcut that you will find very useful for example in screenshots.

Another feature is the Haptic Touch that displays the menu of each application. Just tap and hold on an app and see what appears. It may or may not be useful to you. It depends on the application!

You can even do the same with the built-in iOS features, such as Control Center.

If you use your iPhone for work, then I think these two features will undoubtedly increase your productivity. It will take you a little longer to get used to them, but you will definitely see the benefits. If not, stay tuned for even more tech tips!
