iPhone Hidden Features! iOS 14 Tricks

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

yo what's up guys sam here today we're checking out some more hidden features on your iphone but this time they're features that you've never seen before because they just dropped today with ios 14. uh there's some really cool stuff in here from being able to change your default web browser to truly hiding photos ios 14 is arguably the biggest update ever uh but you know about all the the basic stuff like widgets and picture-in-picture i want to do the jeep cuts today stuff that i guarantee you've never seen

Before so drop a like if you're excited hit subscribe for more let's go ahead and get started with number one first up i know this is triggering to see alarms for some of you out there but i gotta show you this because i didn't discover it and it's so helpful uh the scroll wheel you know the thing where you would like scroll through the times it's gone in ios 14. apple wants you to type in like 9 26 am but if you look a little bit closer they've actually got some additional functionality here let me zoom in

You can tap and swipe through and get the time so the scroll wheel coincidentally does live on it's just not like it used to be you know it's it's a little bit different but it is still here you just have to tap and then you can sort of see the preview numbers there there's an insane new color picker in ios 14 2 which you can access by going into like the screenshot ui which is fantastic and then tapping on this you have so many different colors to choose from and you can literally adjust

Opacity uh you can have these pre-selected colors or you can choose anything but you know that's kind of boring i don't want just squares i want to choose literally i don't know why apple went so hard with this and i don't actually know if i'm ever going to use it but this is kind of sick like if you want this very specific hue of i don't know bright yellow to draw with there you go you've got that in ios 14. one of the coolest new things about ios 14 is that a lot of the ui is compact so for

Example if you're getting a phone call now you know how you'd have to just sit and wait on this screen forever until it ended so you know you don't want to be like that person that hung up now you can just swipe it away or even swipe the banner up top and the phone call goes right up here so if you decide you want to answer you can you can just tap on that or you can swipe it away and continue to use your phone it's amazing and you're going to see this throughout your iphone and other places

Like siri it doesn't take up your entire display when you talk to siri it's down there at the bottom and again if you want to just get rid of that banner you don't have to sit there and wait just swipe it away and it'll go right there in the top left hand corner of your screen if you're on one of the newer iphones following that navigating to your home screen is super easy now you can just tap and hold on your page dots and scroll through your pages insanely

Fast but what if you uh what if you had some maybe questionable apps you didn't want people to see or you just wanted to clean up your setup listen i don't judge i'm just here making iphone hidden features videos if you tap and hold to go into jiggle mode and then tap on your page dots you get this wild new ui called edit pages and you can literally hide things so if i tap right there i don't want any of those apps to show and maybe even maybe even these apps you know i don't want to be on the home screen just tap

On done and they're gone and nobody knows that those apps are on your phone and to get them back you can just do the same thing tap and hold tap on your page dots and there you go you're back in business so facetime when i was 14 got a sick update with picture in picture where you can now drag it around and you don't have to put that person on pause every time you switch your music or use twitter or browse the web to find something but i mean there are cases where you might

Not want to be on camera so if you want to do that you can just swipe facetime over to the right and you get this cool little arrow ui right there and then it also lets you know in the top left hand corner of your screen you are still on a call you can drag this around you can put this on like the opposite side of your display as well drag it down and then anytime you want to go back off pause just put yourself back front and center and then you're good to go safari and i was 14 got a super

Quick javascript engine update which you know i'm not like a big code guy so i was like what does that exactly mean it it just means that safari is the fastest it's ever been so browsing some of your favorite sites uh are gonna be quicker than ever but you know what you know i'm kind of tired of safari if you guys ever looked at safari and been like well my computer i used chrome but on my iphone the only viable option is safari because there's no way to default change that well what if i told you that i was 14

There was actually a way to do that so after years of just relentless lobbying apple has finally allowed default web browser changing this is not photoshop i'm not making this up you can now change your default browser from safari to chrome or a number of approved browsers that apple themselves creates on the app store so now when i go onto twitter or something and tap a link watch what happens open in chrome by default this is insane we have literally been waiting on this feature

Forever but you can now change your default browser and browse the way you actually want to rather than always using safari just because apple tends to think that that's the best now you might know in my last hidden features videos i showed you the hidden utility section where on any photo you can basically go into it tap on it you can hit share and then hit hide and right there it's gonna go right in the hidden photos album there you go it's gone from that section scroll down

Tap on hidden and it's there but i mean the hidden folders is still visible like some of you grab your phone right and still see your stuff well i was taking that a step further in ios 14. watch what happens if you go to settings when super cool and then go down to photos right here there is a new option for hidden album where you can completely hide it so it's there now but if you turn that off your photos are still technically hidden in that folder on your phone but if somebody picks up your photos app

Doesn't look like you have the hidden folder even enabled anytime you want to see those photos get them back go ahead and turn that on and just like that you've got the hidden folder back i mean i've got some i got some raunchy stuff in this folder ios 14 update i mean a photo of some building and my old logo following that on the home screen you've got the widgets that you uh you've probably fallen in love with if you're like me you can actually do widget stacks though

Which is neat so just like folders with apps you can actually drag it on top just like that so now you've got two inside of there let's say i want to throw my music in there as well you can i think do up to 10 of these which is kind of bonkers and then you can swipe through them like so so if you want your weather but then you know like sometimes you want to check stocks look at that dow jones score right there but if you tap and hold there are a couple of settings that you can adjust

Here just tap on edit stack not only can you rearrange them like so you can also turn smart rotate on or off if you always want your top one to be on top turn smart rotate off otherwise it'll sometimes throw music or stocks at you when you're trying to figure out what the temperature is outside but yeah that's the widget stack it's pretty neat and um it's something i haven't seen a lot of people talk about might help you out all right next up i got some cool stuff for you inside of the camera app here on every iphone

In ios 14 once you've updated you can now adjust the video resolution and frame rate in app before you'd have to go to settings but now on on all iphones you can actually tap on that to go to hd tap again to go to 4k or go back from 24 30 or 60 frames per second so why would you actually want to do this well maybe if you're low on space and you're just shooting a quick video hd is fine but perhaps you want you want to capture the full beauty of something you know that's when you could use the 4k

60 option or even tune it down to be more cinematic 4k at 24 frames per second and i don't know if you're like me but whenever i flip my camera around you ever throw off that it's it's not right like you know it's it's not like flipped to how it should be it looks a little off you'll you'll take a photo like this and then when you go to see it back watch what happens it's it's flipped like isn't that odd i don't know it's always blowing my mind so there's a new

Option at ios 14 that allows you to fix that just head over to settings and then camera turn on mirror front camera now watch what happens i'm going to do the exact same photo and just like i see it in the viewfinder that's how it's going to come out it's not going to flip the photo and sort of throw you off i don't know why it's not but a feature but like this is amazing this is my favorite one of the whole bunch whenever you get a new app and they ask for your location you might be a little sketched out off the

Bat like why do they want to know exactly where i am and what's neat in ios 14 is that while the fundamentals are still the same like for example clock you can either turn on precise location or not meaning that before the default was it would know exactly where you were but by disabling precise location in any app let's say i don't want really twitter to know exactly where i'm at i can turn that off you don't know my general vicinity but

It's not gonna know like hey you're these coordinates right here uh because that's just creepy so you can adjust this for like pretty much every app on your phone so maybe go through if you don't trust something maybe be like hey you know i'm a big conspiratorial that's cool but i'm a disabled precise location next up is this feature called back tap where you can tap the back of your phone twice or three times to do something now i want to be clear here this is an accessibility feature this is for people generally with accessibility needs

However if you want to take advantage of it yourself you can just go over here go down to touch and then scroll down to the bottom and enable back tap for my usage i didn't really find it that useful however like a triple tap which is the one i'd recommend could enable control center so i can turn that on tap three times and control center will pop up i think yeah there we go there's control center like with any apple feature there are a ton of options you can do

So much here and even do custom shortcuts which is incredible so if you want to give it a try it is back tap and it might help you out inside apple music on ios 14 apple is finally playing catch up to spotify in a lot of ways but the biggest one for me has been autoplay it's hidden right here it just kind of looks like the infinity sign almost like it would just shuffle through songs but what it does is add a suggested song so you'll never run out of music this is so handy it was always so frustrating apple music that

It would just stop playing i almost switched to spotify because of it so now you've got autoplay just like all your green friends do and finally inside of the weather app it looks pretty much the same on a clear day it's the same weather app you've always known but go to somewhere where it's a little bit rainy and you'll notice there's this cool new graph and also warnings that show up here this is pretty wild apple actually acquired a company that

Used to do this and now they own this technology where you can get down to the minute precipitation and it will show you gradually depending on where you are when the storm is going to ramp up how long it's going to rain for like if it's going to rain in 15 minutes it'll tell you it can help you a lot when planning what to wear or whether or not you need to bring an umbrella with you and it only shows up like i said contextually whenever it is going to be raining so on a normal day you don't see it but on a rainy day it's

There and it's really helpful so these are the hidden features in ios 14 that i think matter these are the ones that kind of blew my mind and i want you to comment down below which feature you didn't know about you know i hope it was all of them i really do i hope you guys enjoyed this one if you did drop a like down below hit subscribe for more this is iphone hidden features in ios 14. i'll see you guys in my next one
