The use of iPhones has been on an incredible rise among the youth around the world, but few do most people know what their Apple phones can do.

You can literally make life way easier for you and perhaps others with such iPhone hacks. We are here to share just five (5) of them.

Simple iPhone tricks you should know

1. Shake

Just shake your phone to undo it. While the Mac has Command-Z, the iPhone has its unique way of fixing typing mistakes: Shake to Undo. Shaking your device to go back or undo a mistake has been around since 2009.

4. Multiple Photo Bursts

You can take a burst of multiple pictures all at once simply by holding the capture button for a while. A quick succession series of fast shots can help you capture a moving object efficiently as you can also scan through all the bursts and select the best-looking one.

5. Passcodes with Letters

You can now create passcodes with letters instead of numbers. It is not mandatory to create a number combination to unlock your phone; you can use alphabets too. Go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock and turn off “Simple Passcode”. With this, you will be prompted to change your passcode where a keyboard with letters would appear. This keyboard appears every time you want to unlock your phone.
