The iPhone allows users to do many things – make a phone call, surf the Web, watch a film – all by just touching a virtual button. However, there are also plenty of ‘hidden’ features waiting to be discovered, especially with the Safari web browser.
Make a call from Safari
If a user finds a phone number in Safari that they’d like to call (for example, the phone number of a reputable online gadget insurance company) then they do not need to jump to the phone component to ring it. In fact, all they need to do is tap the number and their iPhone will dial it for them. Simple and very handy.
Get a bigger keyboard
As everyone knows, tapping Safari’s address bar brings up an on-screen keyboard. However, if a user rotates the iPhone horizontally before tapping the address bar, the Safari window will switch to horizontal mode. As a consequence, the onscreen keyboard will also appear horizontally when the user next taps the address bar. This horizontal keyboard is considerably larger than the standard vertical one so users will find data entry much easier (Safari is the only application in which this horizontal keyboard appears).
Regardless of how much they may or may not know about their iPhone, users must make sure they have suitable mobile phone insurance cover for their favourite gadget. After all, they won’t be able to carry on learning about the iPhone’s hidden features if they don’t have one to play with!
