Here are 15 iPhone hacks that will even impress Siri.
Convenience through secret gestures
While many of the apps and features on the iPhone are pretty straightforward, there are a few hidden ones Apple doesn’t tell you about. One of these so-called “secret gestures” is when you’re in the “App Store,” if you press any of the menu buttons at the bottom of the screen ten times, you’ll reset the cache. Another one is if you hit the green call button in the iPhone app, your phone will recall the last number you called.
Specific apps have their own secret gestures, too. In Safari, open up the “New Tab” button on the bottom right corner of the screen, then hold down the “+” which will give you the ability to open back up any recently closed tabs. Another useful Safari one is after hitting the “New Tab” button, hold down the “Done” button in the bottom right corner. Then, you’ll be able to close all open tabs at once.
