Tips of iOS 7 – The little things that will make the difference!
Lets start immediately, because the Tricks and Tips of iOS 7 we will present, are a lot!
1. Burst Mode in Camera:
Burst mode is to take multiple shots very quickly (and not hitting the camera button multiple times!), and Camera app on iOS 7 supports it. All you have to do is to Click and Hold the “Volume-Up” button.
2. Close Multiple Apps:
By double tapping your Home button, you can see all the running apps, and by flicking an app upwards, you can make it to close. This can be done by using two or more fingers, try it out!
3. Close notifications:
Most of the apps use notifications to update you about various things, but it can be very annoying! You can close those notifications by swiping it upwards, without opening them!
4. Quickly Block Contacts:
iOS 7 has great blocking feature and it supports Phone, FaceTime and Messages. Add the number you want to block to your “Contacts” and by scrolling down just tap on the “Block This Caller“. You are done!
5. Timestamps on messages:
I want to have timestamps to my SMS, MMS or iMessage, so this tip was very helpful to me! Just “Swipe to left” and everything will appear!

6. Swipe Backwards App:
A great app that will allow you with one swipe to move backwards, regardless the area or app you are using. Just swipe backwards and go to the place where you previously were!
7. Where you have been?:
This might sound a bit creepy, but iOS 7 logs the places you have been and mark them in a map. I personally de-activated from “Settings”, “Privacy”, “Location Services”, “System Services” (By tapping the “Frequent Locations” you can see where you mostly have been!)
8. Autofill feature of Safari:
This is something I am using a lot, not only to my iPhone, but to my PC. From “Settings“, “Safari“, “Passwords” and “Autofill” you can enable this feature.
9. Use one folder for everything:
iOS 7 now supports not a specific number of apps to its folders. You can now add as many as you want without limitations!
10. Maps – Walking vs Driving:
I know that Apple’s Maps is not that great, but it does its job. You can switch to “walking mode” from “Settings“, “Maps” and change “Walking” to “Preferred Directions“.
Last Tricks and Tips of iOS 7 you should know!
11. Where is the nearest App Store?
This can be handy for some, this is why I include it to this list. In the AppStore app you can find a “Near Me” tab. Tap on that and it will show the nearest App Stores in your area!
12. Automated App Updating:
From “Settings” -> “iTunes and App Store” you can enable the “Updates” from the “Automatic Downloads“. Make sure you have an unlimited data plan!
13. AirDrop app:
A very quick way to share photos, web pages, location or even communicate. Make sure that you have bluetooth or WiFi turned on, tap on the AirDrop from the Control Center and then tap the “thing” you want to share. Final step is to choose the person you want to share this info!
14. Siri “Search on Google”:
As you know, there is no way to change the default browser of Siri (Bing), but you can ask Siri to search on Google! Just say, “Search Google for Unlock Softbank carrier” and hopefully Siri will bring you to us again!
