Just get an iPhone 6? Want to have the best possible experience with your iPhone 6 to get things done smoothly? These 4 little tips would help you know more about iPhone 6 and control iPhone 6 in a smoother and safer way.
Set up Touch ID
Generally speaking, if you purchased your iPhone 6 in Apples retailer store, you could turn to Apple’s stuff to activate your iPhone and set up Touch ID. But if you haven’t set it up, I may suggest you set it up immediately for it could keep your iPhone more secure and save time.
First, to set up Touch ID, open the Settings app, scroll down to Touch ID & Passcode. Tap to enter this option and enter your passcode when requested, then toggle these two options – iPhone Unlock and iTunes & App Store. Applying Touch ID to these options will save your time not having to type your passcode or your Apple ID’s password.
To set up Touch ID, tap the Add a Finger option, then follow the instructions to let your iPhone 6 record your fingerprint until it says OK. When it’s done, try out Touch ID. Turn off your iOS device, then press the home or power button to wake it up, and press your finger—the one you recorded with Touch ID—on the device.
For your convenience, you may set up Touch ID with more than one fingers, as there’re cases your finger – the one your set it up as Touch ID, might be busy doing other things like holding books, sticking on a baby, etc. You only need to do the above things again to add Touch IDs with your fingers.
Set up long passcode
The four-digit passcode seems pretty feeble, doesn’t it? But actually, you can change it to a longer and more secure passcode easily. On Touch ID & Passcode settings panel, scroll down a bit, and you’ll see a toggle that says Simple Passcode. Toggle this off, enter your passcode, then enter a longer and more secure new passcode.
On the popup entire keyboard, you can create a passcode with letters and/or numbers, and one as long as you want.
Put Apps in Folders
You could put multiple apps into one folder by moving icons of these apps. Start by pressing and holding the home button until your app icons wiggle. Next, drag one app icon onto another; iOS automatically creates a folder. It even suggests a name; I accepted Productivity for the folder in the video below, but you can change that. When you’re finished, press the home button again to exit the folder, then again to stop the apps from wiggling.
To access apps in a folder, tap the folder; it opens. Then tap an app, and it launches. You can put lots of app in a folder, and they can even be on multiple "pages," with nine apps per page. If a folder has more than one page, just swipe to see the next page.
One way I save time on my iOS devices is by dictating. I have big, clumsy thumbs, and it’s a lot faster to talk to my iPhone than to type. You can dictate in most apps, but only if you use the standard Apple keyboard. (If you’ve installed third-party keyboards, you need to switch back to the default; only Apple’s keyboard is allowed to access the microphone.)
I’ve made a video to show you how this works, below. I created a new tweet in Twitterrific on my iPhone, and I dictated a bit of text.
Tap the microphone button at the bottom of the keyboard, and you’ll see that the keyboard goes away and is replaced by a large area that shows a line. Start speaking; the line changes into waves that move as you speak, and your words are typed wherever the cursor is. When you’re finished, tap Done and the keyboard comes back; you may need to correct some typos. But speaking a text message, tweet or email can be a lot faster than typing it; just make sure to proofread it, so there are no “voice-os,” or transcription mistakes.
