You may not notice these secret iPhone tricks, but they can legally save you time from endless tapping.
When you’re scrolling on your device or reading an article from a website, you browse down to see the next piece of content. If you want to easily go to the top, you have to click on the middle part of the screen.
Flip-scrolling can be monotonous at times, but there is a trick you can do to kick the habit. All you have to do is click on the top part of your iPhone’s screen, and that’s it.
This applies when you are using an app. This is just a magical hack that you need to do without question as it is easy to follow.
Text Replacement as a Shortcut
Did you know there’s a way to type your email address without having to type it? Thanks to random characters on your iPhone, you can use text replacement.
To do this, go to Settings, then click on General. From there, tap on Keyboard and click on Text Replacement.
Wired recommends that you use “eml” instead of typing in your full email address. If you are asked to enter your home address, you can also use this trick. Just imagine how much time you save by typing a very long name for your exact location.
Sources say that if you want to do this more effectively, you need to use unusual letters. As much as possible, use text replacement as you can link it to iCloud. Whatever Apple device you’re using, your progress will be saved here.

Ninja way to hide your photos
Your iPhone’s gallery is a collection of your photos and videos. Although it is quite “private”, many people can see what is inside it. If you want to hide your sensitive things in your photo library, try this trick.
First, click on one, or you can even select a few if you want. Once you are done, click on the share icon. If you see an arrow going up in a box, that’s it. Continue scrolling down until you stumble upon the one with “Hide”. Make sure to tick it.
If you want to see your hidden images, go to Albums and continue scrolling down. You will see hidden there. You can also switch off the feature in your Photos section by going to Settings.
Once it’s activated, you’ll need to enter a passcode before you can view the photos and videos hidden in the album.
