But once you learned all these cool tips and tricks, you will never try to move back to any other mobile device.

Tip #1: Hide Specific Photos

Hide Specific Photos in iPhone

It is a very common situation to have some secret photos in your Photo Library that you don’t want anybody to see. Luckily, there is an option that will allow you to hide some specific photos from your Photo Library without deleting them.

And to do so, just follow these steps:-

  1. Go to the Photos App.
  2. Open the album and then select the desired photos which you want to hide.
  3. After selecting all photos, click on the sharing icon at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Now scroll down and tap on the Hide option.

Transfer Pictures From One iPhone to Another

This is that one tip which every new iPhone user strives for because sometimes transferring photo is not that easy. And if you are wondering how to transfer pictures from iPhone to iPhone, then there are very few ways that you can do it. Probably the easiest one is to use a specialized app that will not only help you to transfer photos from one iPhone to another but will also give you the ability to choose other files that you want to transfer.

On the other hand, if you don’t care about editing the list of items that you want to transfer, then you can also transfer the photos by using iCloud. But the disadvantage of iCloud is that you cannot select what to sync and what to not and also it takes a longer time.

Apart from this, you can also use Airdrop for transferring the photos & if this also doesn’t work for you then you can follow the above guide.

Tip #3: Use a Sleep Timer

  2. Now click on the Medical ID option at the bottom right corner of the screen to fill it out.

Hey Siri! is one of the cool things which I really like about the iPhone. And you won’t believe that this hack has helped me a lot. I always use Siri to make phone calls especially when I am driving or in a hurry. No need to go to your contacts and search for the name, just say Hey Siri call ___ & it’s right there.

Probably a lot of people have encountered the situation when Siri funnily pronounces a name. But luckily, there is a way to fix that issue and teach Siri to pronounce names correctly.
