How to use the keyboard as a trackpad

iPhone 7 And iPhone 7 Plus Hidden Features, Tips And Tricks

Composing an email on a phone can often be fiddly, especially when you want to skip back and forwards through the message, tweaking it as you go. Thankfully Apple has added a secret

feature into the virtual iOS keyboard, to help us out.

Poking the cursor to the precise bit you want to edit can often be a challenge, so try pushing hard on that keyboard instead. The iPhone 7’s 3D Touch screen will register this firm press

and you’ll see the keyboard turn blank. Without lifting your finger, try swiping around the keyboard. You’ll see a cursor moving around the screen, allowing you to position it wherever you like.

This touchpad feature even allows you to highlight blocks of text. Just ease off the pressure without completely lifting your finger and then push hard again, and the current word

underneath the cursor will be selected. You can move the cursor around to highlight more or less text.

How to quickly erase a message

If you’ve started to type a text message but then you change your mind and decide to say something different, don’t bother mashing the backspace key. Instead, just give your iPhone 7 or

iPhone 7 Plus a swift shake and you’ll be asked if you want to delete the entire thing. Easy.

How to change the feedback level of the new home button

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus feature a new home button, which isn’t actually a button at all. When you ‘push’ it, that clicking sensation you get is actually just vibration feedback.

If you want a softer or stronger vibration, you can actually set this up in the iPhone 7’s settings. Head to General, and then Home Button. In here you can choose between three levels of

feedback, with the option to test each level before selecting your favourite.

How to quickly check for any waiting notifications

Simply pulling your phone out of your pocket, or lifting it from its resting place, will now briefly activate the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus’ display. This allows you to quickly check for

any waiting notifications and messages, without having to tap the home button. Granted that’s not exactly a massive time saver, but it’s something at least.

Make your phone flash when you have notifications

If you’re constantly missing notifications, you can go one step further than above and actually make the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus flash when something’s awaiting your attention. In other words,

you can make the phone’s camera flash ping on and off until you take a peek.

To activate the notification flash feature, go to the iPhone’s settings menu. Now go to General, and then Accessibility. In here you’ll see the LED Flash for Alerts entry – just give this a tap to activate it. Be aware of course that your handset’s battery life will take a hit if the flash is constantly going off.

The All New iOS 10 lock screen

iPhone 7 And iPhone 7 Plus Hidden Features, Tips And Tricks

The lock screen is now more helpful than ever before on the iPhone 7. For instance, you can now 3D Touch your notifications to see more details – just push hard on a calendar entry for

full details, for instance.

You can also now swipe your finger left across the lock screen to immediately launch the camera app and take a quick photo or record a video without delay. Just tap the home button to

return to the lock screen when you’re done.

Get to grips with Today View

If you swipe your finger right from the lock screen or your first home screen, you’ll bring up Apple’s new Today View. This gives you a quick glimpse of all of your most important info, as

well as shortcuts to your most-used apps.

You can easily add a new ‘widget’ to the Today View, remove an existing one and change their order. Just scroll to the bottom of the Today View panel and tap ‘Edit’. If you poke the minus

icon next to any existing widget, it will disappear. You can also add new ones by tapping the plus icon next to them. And to change their order, just hold the icon that looks like three

lines to the right of a widget and then drag it up or down.

Do more in the iOS 10 Control Center

iPhone 7 And iPhone 7 Plus Hidden Features, Tips And Tricks

Apple’s Control Center got a big overhaul in iOS 10, so it’s better than ever on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Just drag your finger up from the bottom of your desktop, and you’ll pull the Control Center onto the screen. From here you can toggle some of the iPhone’s most-used features on and off,

such as WiFi and Bluetooth, as well as jump straight to popular apps such as the camera. There’s also controls for AirDrop (which allows you to swap files with another iOS device) and

AirPlay (for throwing your iPhone’s screen to another device like an Apple TV).

These days you also get Night Shift controls. This allows you to quickly activate the blue filter mode and make the screen easier on the eye when using the iPhone 7 in the dark. And if you

swipe your finger left across the Control Center, you get simple media controls. This helps you to pause, play and skip through your media, or jump into the previously used media app.

Handily, if you’re playing music when you bring up the Control Center, the media screen is the first thing you’ll see. Saves you a swipe.

Note that the Control Center icons are 3D Touch sensitive. In other words, if you hard poke something like the camera icon, you’ll see a sub-menu pop up on screen. This allows you to

quickly jump to specific features, such as shooting a video or taking a selfie.

How to set up restrictions for apps and make the iPhone kid-friendly

In the iPhone 7’s settings, head to the Restrictions section. In this PIN-protected menu you can enable restrictions, which allows you to disable key apps and features such as Siri,

AirDrop and CarPlay. You can also prevent the installation and deletion of apps, App Store purchases and more – handy if your young one is going to be handling your iPhone without


If you’re giving the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus to a kid to use full-time, you might also want to set which content is allowed. For instance, you can prevent movies above a certain rating from

being downloaded, and even restrict what websites your child can browse.

How to use the Touch ID fingerprint sensor for Apple Pay, iTunes and App Store purchases and more

That Touch ID fingerprint sensor that’s built into the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus’ home button is very handy for getting into your mobile, while keeping out thieves or misbehaving younger members

of your family. However, it can also be used to validate your Apple Pay, iTunes and App Store purchases.

Jump into the iPhone’s settings menu and then head to ‘Touch ID and Passcode’. From here you can choose exactly what the Touch ID scanner can be used for.

How to turn your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus into a personal WiFi hotspot

If you’re on the move and your kids want to get online with their personal tablets or other devices, you can set up a WiFi network for them.

Head into the iPhone 7’s settings menu and go to Personal Hotspot. Tap the switch at the top of the menu to turn this feature on. You can also change the password of your private network

by giving that a tap beneath, and setting it to whatever you like. Now other devices can connect to your iPhone in their WiFi menu, using the password you set.

Bear in mind that some network contracts forbid the use of personal WiFi hotspots, so this feature may not work depending on your network and contract choice.

How to use WiFi and mobile data at the same time

If your chosen WiFi network is a bit ropey, giving you timeout messages while you’re browsing the web or taking ages over anything, you can use Apple’s ‘WiFi Assist’ feature to use both

WiFi and cellular/mobile data at the same time (be aware that this will of course eat into your data allowance, something that WiFi by itself doesn’t).

To activate WiFi Assist, just head to the iPhone 7’s settings menu and then tap ‘Mobile Data’ (this may be ‘Cellular’ in the States). From here scroll down and you’ll see the WiFi Assist

option. Make sure this is switched on by giving it a tap.

How to see your current battery percentage

iPhone 7 And iPhone 7 Plus Hidden Features, Tips And Tricks

At the top right corner of the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus’ screen, you’ll see a battery meter. This gives a rough indication of how much power you have remaining, but for a more accurate

measurement, head to the iPhone’s settings menu. From here, scroll down to ‘Battery’.

You can now tick the box which says ‘Battery Percentage’ to permanently display how much battery charge is left in your mobile in that top bar.

Use your Apple phone for DIY

You might not think that your precious iPhone 7 doubles as a handy DIY tool, but there’s a built-in level that not many people know about. Just tap Apple’s Compass app and then swipe your

finger left across the screen and the level tool pops up. Now you can see the exact inclination, to make sure those new shelves are perfectly straight.

How to change the screen timeout length on iPhone 7

It can be quite annoying when your iPhone keeps on hibernating when you’re in the middle of using it, and as the default screen timeout is just a minute, this is a pretty common complaint.

You used to be able to change the iPhone’s timeout length in the settings menu, in General > Auto-Lock. However, the Auto-Lock setting has now moved into the Display & Brightness menu,

which we think makes a lot more sense. Boost the time up to five minutes and you’ll rarely see the iPhone 7 hibernate when you’re busy using it.
