IF YOU’VE got an iPhone, there’s a good chance some of your gadget’s most useful features have passed you by.
A TikTok tech tipster recently highlighted a bunch of little-known hacks that make life that little bit easier.
User @katamogz highlighted them in a video shared with her 2.4million followers in March 2022.
If an app is sending you too many notifications you can quickly mute it from the Lock Screen.
The Lock Screen shows the current time and date and your most recent notifications and appears when you turn on or wake your iPhone.
To stop an app from sending you alerts for a while, swipe left on a notification and tap opsies.
You can then select to mute notifications for that service for an hour or the rest of the day.
Screenshot an entire webpage
There’s an easy way to take a screenshot of an entire webpage instead of just the section that’s visible on your display.
Eerste, you’ll need to take a screenshot by pressing two buttons simultaneously.
On iPhones without a Home Button, hit the power and volume up buttons at the same time.
On older devices, press the power button and Home Button to take one.
Van daar af, tap Full page at the top of your display and tap Done to save the entire page as a PDF.

Siri can send links
If you’re feeling particularly lazy, you can ask the iPhone’s voice assistant Siri to send web links to your pals.
It’s far less fiddly than copying and pasting a link into iMessage or other chat services.
While looking at a web page on your iPhone, simply say “Hey Siri, share this with [Alison Hammond verlaat Dermot O'Leary SCREAMING met Line of Duty-bom]” (or something similar like “send this to [Alison Hammond verlaat Dermot O'Leary SCREAMING met Line of Duty-bom]”.
Siri will share the content on the screen to that person using iMessage.
Send custom iMessage effects
You probably already know about the colourful animations you can add to your iPhone texts using special codewords.
All you need to do is send someone a special trigger word over iMessage to activate each effect.
Typing “pew pew” activates a laser effect, byvoorbeeld, terwyl “happy birthday” causes balloons to float around the screen.
But did you know you can create a custom screen effect using a combination of whatever emoji you like?
To try it out for yourself, type out three or fewer emojis and then hold the send button (that’s the green arrow to the right of the textbox).
Tap Screen at the top of your display to send them with a full-screen effect. Tap Send.
