Make the Most of your iPhone 6/6+ with these Tips & Tricks!

  • opt out of group messages – launch the Messages app as you would normally, and choose the group thread you’d like to opt out of. Afterward, tap Details in the upper-right corner, and select the Leave this conversation option at the bottom of the menu.
  • how to capture smoother video – Enabling 60 FPS on the iPhone 6 brings its already stellar recording capabilities up a notch! The feature doubles the amount of frames per second when recording, transforming iPhone 6 videos from 30 to 60 frames per second. To enable 60 FPS, tap the Photos and Camera option within the main Settings, and toggle Record video at 60 FPS to on.
  • how to capture slow-motion videos – The iPhone 6 is the only one of its kind capable of capturing slow-motion videos, which are great for recording action videos. To enable the feature, launch the Camera app as you would normally, and select SLO-MO from the sliding wheel at the bottom of the screen. Then, choose between 120 and 240 frames per second.
  • how to instantly send voice messages –  iOS makes sending voice messages a breeze. To record your message, tap and hold the microphone icon to the right of the text field when viewing a thread. Then, when finished recording, just swipe up to send your message or slide right to cancel.
  • how to listen and respond to audio messages –  The Raise to Listen feature allows you to listen and reply to audio recordings just like you would a normal phone call. To do so, select Messages within the main Settings panel, and toggle Raise to Listen to on.
  • how to look at another message while composing an e-mail – Swipe down on the title bar, directly between the Cancel and Send options, when composing your message to access your inbox or the email you’re replying to. Then, just tap New Message at the bottom of the screen to return to your message.
  • how to selectively clear your browsing history – launch the Safari app as you would normally, and tap the book icon located at the bottom of the window before selecting the History option. Afterward, swipe left to delete individual sites or tap Clear in the bottom-right corner to erase history within one of four resulting time frames.
  • how to identify a song – To identify the particular song playing in your vicinity just ask Siri “what song is playing?” or “name that tune?” Siri will then name the song and artist after listening for a brief moment.
  • how to toggle predictive text on and off – To turn the pivotal feature on or off, begin by touching and holding the smiley face or globe button while viewing the keyboard. Afterward, just tap Predictive or swipe above the option to toggle it on or off.
  • how to share your location – Tap Details in the upper-right corner when viewing a message thread and select the Send My Current Location option from the resulting list of options. Once done, your recipient will receive a map with your GPS location conveniently pinpointed on it.
