The iPhone continues to be the most popular smartphone in the world. Due to its ease of use and simplicity, the iPhone is more accepted than competing Android smartphones. If you own an iPhone 12 or iPhone 13, you might already know how it has improved over previous generations. In addition to the features heavily marketed by Apple, the iPhone has many lesser-known features that barely command attention. We present to you five fantastic features hidden in the iPhone. You just need to know where to find them.
Disable unwanted calls
Nobody likes unwanted calls. Whether it’s a call from a telemarketer or just the wrong number, having your phone ringing at irregular times is annoying. Luckily, being an iPhone user, you have the ability to silence unknown callers. In iOS 15, there is a feature that lets you silence unknown callers so your iPhone doesn’t ring. Basically, when you enable the Silence Unknown Caller feature, all calls from unknown numbers will automatically go to voicemail. That being said, the calls will still show up in your Recent Calls, tap the Phone app, so you always know who called, then choose to call back. To be clear, when the feature is enabled, you will receive incoming calls from people in your contacts.
Here’s how to silence unknown callers on iPhone
*Open Settings from your home screen.
*Faucet ‘Call‘then turn on’Silence unknown callers.’ The switch turns green when the function is activated.
Easily find specific words on Safari
One of the lesser known but interesting features of the iPhone is how you can easily search for a specific word on Safari using the keyword search option. If you’re reading an article about “Chinese Fried Rice Recipe” on Safari and need to locate a specific word or phrase, just use the keyword search instead of browsing the entire the item. In the search bar, enter the text you want to search for, scroll down and select “On this page”.
