We might wish to select which downloads, your Phone should complete first, an essential feature to configure while setting up your new phone. To do this, open Settings, tap Display & Brightness, and activate the Raise to Wake option. Voila!

If you feel the iPhone’s default text size and shape does not match up your viewing preference, why not edit to your taste. Open Settings and then tap Display and Brightness, then you use the Text Size and Bold text options to change the on-screen typesetting and apply your desired text choices.

3. Location Tracking

Phone apps, such as mapping and some weather apps, must know location in order to function effectively. Some of us might prefer not to leave the apps tracking us at all times. Good thing iOS allows you to configure such apps to access your location only when needed to function. How can you do this? Open Settings and tap Privacy, then Location services. Select any app and change Always to While Using the App. I hope this helps.

4. Effective Sorting function

The Files app in your iPhone can arrange / sort your files in many dynamic ways similar to the files sort function on a computer. Simply drag down somewhere on your screen, a menu will appear depicting options to sort your files by name, date, size or tags.

Want to take that quick shot when you bump into an amazing event or scenario?
