Although most of the world’s smartphones run on Android, Apple’s brand-exclusive operating system iOS is equally awesome, if not better sometimes. There are many cool things iOS allows you to do on your iPhone. And iOS 10, the current version that’s on the market, is a very good operating system. Here are the best five iOS 10 tips and tricks everyone needs to know (or at least everyone who own an iPhone).
- Make messaging more fun
Maybe you didn’t know this, but messages that are sent between Apple users on iMessagecan be jazzed up quite a bit. You can add various animations and other cute stuff to them in order to brighten up a particularly dull day for a friend or loved one.
- Draw in iMessage
iMessage also allows you to draw your message and send it just like that to a recipient of your choice (as long as they own an Apple device too).
- Search in the Photos app
Did you know that iOS 10 allows you to search for photos containing certain objects in the Photo app? Say you took a cool picture of a tree and now want to post it on Instagram, but it’s been a while and you can’t find it? Search ‘tree’ in your Photos app and it will most likely come up.
- Find your car
Let’s face it, forgetting where we parked happened to all of us at least once. It’s not your fault, life can be pretty stressful. And with Apple Maps on your iOS 10 iPhone you can find your car immediately because it automatically detects that you parked and marks the location on the map for you.
- Words become emojis
It’s true that sometimes an emoji is worth a thousand words. The Messages app on your iPhone allows you to switch any word up with the corresponding emoji immediately.
