As much as we love the iPhone and use it constantly in our daily life, at times it can be quite annoying because we do something that does not work perfectly for us from our point of view, here are some of these annoying things and how to deal with them to avoid this inconvenience later.
Moving texts from papers to notes can be boring
If you have an iPhone running iOS 15. Make things easier with Live Text or LiveText, a feature that lets you copy text from an image, works with most handwritings, but the font must be legible and readable for it to work properly.
Start by taking a picture of the paper and open it from the Photos app, you'll see a little icon in the bottom right corner that indicates clear text, it only appears in photos that contain text, you can tap on it to highlight text that iOS recognizes.
To copy the text, you need to tap and hold on the text in the image. When highlighting, release your finger and choose from the list what you want. You can copy the highlighted text, select all of it, search for it, translate it, or share an excerpt from it with others.
Unfortunately the feature Support some languages Only Arabic is not one of them
No time to answer the phone or write a long message
Sometimes you may not be able to answer the phone and need to write a long message to the caller so that he understands why you can't answer his phone call or reply to his text messages.
Apple lets you ignore the call and reply with a text instead. You can choose from three default messages such as "Sorry, I can't talk right now." You can change these messages through Settings -> Phone -> Reply with a message. Here you will see the three default messages. Tap on the message you want to change and type your custom text.
You notice I wrote I'm praying now, I think it's supposed to be I'm praying now I'll call you later
Note: You can also do something similar with text messages, instead of typing a lengthy reply, you can create keyboard shortcuts. Open Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> Add New Shortcut. Choose an abbreviation like “Route” and then type in the full text phrase. In this example, we want "road" to refer to "I'm on my way home, see you soon." And so on.
You miss important phone calls and deal with random calls
You may assign ringtones to specific contacts, and you can also set unique vibration patterns, that way when your phone is in silent mode, you will be able to know who is calling just by vibrate pattern.
◉ Open the Contacts app on the iPhone and select the contact you want to personalize.
◉ Select Edit and then Ringtone or Message Tone, depending on the tone you want to change.
◉ Select vibration and choose default vibration or create custom vibration by tapping on the screen.
If that's not enough, you can go into your accessibility settings and configure your device to flash for every incoming call, and to do that, go to Settings -> General -> Accessibility.
In the “Listening” section, you will find the LED flash option for alerts, activate it, and the other if you want to use the LED flash for alerts when the bell button is set to silent.
Now that you have set your device to detect important callers, you can also set it up to detect spam.
Open Settings > Phone, then scroll until you see Silence Unknown Callers or Silence Unknown Callers and toggle it on. Once enabled, all calls from unknown numbers will be silenced and sent to voicemail. And if you want to review these random calls, you can find them in your recent calls list.
The cursor is always in the wrong place
Trying to correct a typing error on the iPhone or iPad can be annoying. It is simply, clicking to place the cursor in the place you want and correct the error, and this may take you some time to put the cursor in the right place, and you may resort to deleting the line or word until you reach the place of the error and start again.
Instead of fumbling around, tap and hold the space bar, you'll notice the keyboard disappears, and it's converted to a trackpad, where you can then move your finger in any direction to move the cursor smoothly to the correct position.
As for the direct text, this feature does not work on all iPhones, I think from the iPhone 12, and what some do not know is that this feature must be activated from the settings
Thanks for the great article 🌹
Very nice and useful article ❤️
Your presentation of the topic is very sweet, but the solutions do not work
The cursor is always in the wrong place
The problem is great if the text is composed of two languages, Arabic and English, for example. Sometimes it becomes impossible to set the cursor on the position to be corrected.
The image transfer feature is not working well, I hope to improve it in ios16
Important and useful advice
thank you teacher
Your efforts are appreciated, but as long as the iPhone has two different lines, is it possible to assign a ringtone to each line? Greetings
Thank you very much for your kind efforts
