Apple keeps iPhone simple, so does iPhone 5. But, is it so simple? Are you sure you know well about your iPhone? There is no doubt that iPhones are great at doing basic things that stardard smartphones do like making phone calls, messages texting, taking pictures and checking and sending emails. Do you know that you can use it better than that to make our lifes more convenient and easier? Here I’ll tell you a few small secret tricks to make the best out of your iPhone.
Trick 1: Is it an iPhone 5? Yes? Do you know how to turn the LTE off to save battery life?
Go this way: Settings – General – Cellular – Enable LTE. Turn this option down and you can save more battery for your phone.
Trick 2: Just in need of a screenshot of the screen of your phone right now?
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button, then press the Home button. The screen will flash for one or two second and then the picture will show up in Camera Roll.
Trick 3: Do you think the passcode to active your phone is too simple? Why not set up an alphanumeric passcode?

Go to Settings, tap General and find passcode lock. Turn off the option “Simple Passcode” and it will ask you to set an alphanumeric passcode.
Trick 4: Have you ever upgrade your iPhone to iOS 6? Yes? Have you heard of the ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature?
