iPhone 14′s cycle as the most advanced Apple smartphone is almost over. Well, considering that the company usually announces and releases the new iteration of its well-known device in September. While the iPhone 15 family is just about to come out, and if you don’t care about being an early adopter, this might be the best time to buy the iPhone 14. So let’s take a look at some of the commands, tricks, and other basic secrets you should know if you have or want an iPhone 14.
How to turn off your iPhone 14?
A curious but frequently asked question. While turning on the iPhone 14 is a simple thing to do, turning it off seems to be not as intuitive as one would expect, as there are several methods to do so. The first method is to simultaneously press the side button and the volume up or down button until the display changes to the “slide to power off” prompt. The second method is to ask Siri to turn off your iPhone. In case you need to force restart your iPhone 14, a combination of volume up, volume down and side button should be used.
How to turn off the Do Not Disturb Mode
Your iPhone’s Do Not Disturb mode prevents calls, alerts, and notifications from reaching you. To begin receiving these again, disable Do Not Disturb mode on your device. The fastest method to accomplish this is by accessing Control Center. Once Control Center is open, select the “Focus” option. Additionally, you can establish a schedule for activating and deactivating this mode through the Settings.
Remove subjects from photo backgrounds
An impressive feature of iPhone 14 is the ability to select objects within an image and separate them from their original backgrounds. This creates a cropped image with a simple background, allowing you to seamlessly copy, paste and share.
To use this feature, simply tap and hold a photo. As you do, an outline appears around the main subject in the foreground. When you release your finger, you’ll be given the option to copy the subject. This copied selection can then be pasted into various documents or messages. Alternatively, you can tap the Share button, which allows you to send the image through any application or method accessible from your Share menu.
iPhone’s secret button
Right on the back of the phone, where the logo is, you’ll find a secret button aptly named “Back Tap”. With this feature, you can do almost anything you want on your phone, like activate the camera, mute your device, turn on the flashlight, and more. To enable this button, go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > Back Tap. Here you can choose what happens when you use this button.
Cast Harry Potter spells with Siri
Well, more than an iPhone 14, this is a classic we couldn’t leave out, specially if you are a fan of The Boy Who Lived.. Say “Hey Siri, Lumos” to turn on your flashlight, or “Hey Siri, Nox” to turn it off. You can also say other spells, although don’t expect to much if you are casting Avada Kedavra.
