IPhone Tips & Tricks You Probably Don’t Know
You should know by now that we love every shiny product that Apple brings into the market especially the iPhone. Although iOS6 had some let downs, the aluminum body of the iPhone 5 is undoubtedly still one of the best looking smartphones you can buy, with plenty of stylish accessories to keep it looking good.
1. Save Battery Life (When It Is Running Low)
When your iPhone battery is running low, turning off the following settings can help make your iPhone last longer. With these off, you can still receive calls, SMS and even go online with EDGE connection.
Settings > Wi-Fi > Off.
Settings > Bluetooth > Off.
Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Off.
Settings > General > Cellular > Enable 3G > Off.
Settings > General > Cellular > Enable LTE > Off.
Settings > Sounds > Vibrate on Ring & Silent > Off.
Settings > Brightness & Wallpaper > Auto-Brightness > Off.
Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data > Off.
2. Stop The Music With A Timer
Do you like to listen to music when getting into bed for the night but often doze off without switching the iPhone off? You can use a timer to help you shut down the music. To do this, tap on Clock > Timer > When Timer Ends. Scroll down and tap Stop Playing. Then, set a timer (say 30 mins) and tap Start. Now you may play any music and it will be turned off after 30 mins.
3. Delete Last Digit In Calculator App
Entered a wrong digit in the Calculator app? Instead of tapping the Clear [C] button, you can just swipe your finger to the left or right of the numbers to clear the last digit. Each swipe will remove the last digit until the number becomes zero.
4. Set An Alphanumeric Passcode
Add an extra layer of protection to your iPhone with an alphanumeric passcode. To activate it, go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock. Turn off Simple Passcode and you will be prompted to enter your alphanumeric password.

Shaky hands not getting you good photos? Well you can trigger a snapshot using the volume up or down buttons on your headphone.
6. Switch Shooting Directions In Panorama
Tap the arrow in Panorama mode to switch the shooting direction so you can take a panorama picture from left to right or right to left.
