Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
While the world awaits the new iPhone 5, Protect Your Bubble reminds iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s users that their phone can still perform some cool tricks. The gadget insurance brand has compiled a list of five and practical tips:
1. Perform a Hard Reset – This trick can be performed when users are having issues with the performance of their iPhone. A hard reset shuts the iPhone off completely. To do this, hold lock and home buttons down at the same time about five 5 seconds. The Apple logo will appear and then the phone will power down. Let the phone rest for a moment and then turn it back on and then it should be refreshed and ready to go.
2. Caps Lock – For those who want to convey a strongly worded message or simply enjoy texting in all caps, there’s a way to easily do that. Simply double tap the shift key and TYPE THE MESSAGE.
3. Custom Vibrations – Many people don’t realize that it’s possible to customize the vibrate mode on iOS 5. This is done by going to “Settings,” then to “General” and then to “Accessibility.” Next, turn on “Custom Vibrations” under “Hearing.” Then, go to “Settings” and then to “Sounds.” Scroll to the bottom, and that’s where “Vibration Patterns” are located. Once this button is tapped, users should tap on “Create New Vibration;” this is where users can make their own custom vibration. To create a unique pattern, tap the screen to create a pulse by tapping one’s finger for quick pulses and/or holding one’s finger down for longer vibrations. Users can also assign these vibrations to a contact, or use them as the default vibration.
4. Get Hourly Weather Reports – This is a useful and easy iPhone trick. Simply access the weather app to view the weekly weather report. Tap on the day of the week and a drop down screen will reveal the hourly forecast for the rest of the day. Note: It doesn’t work days in advance.
5. Take a Screenshot – Many folks don’t realize they can take screen shots. All that needs to be done is to press the home button and the lock button simultaneously. The screen will flash white to verify that the action was performed. For those with Photo Stream via iCloud, each image goes straight into the user’s stream.
