Mute notifications

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 苹果手机.

To stop an app from sending you alerts for a while, swipe left on a notification and tap options.

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.

第一的, 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.

从那里, tap Full page at the top of your display and tap Done to save the entire page as a PDF.

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 [名称]” (or something similar like “send this to [名称]”.

Siri will share the content on the screen to that person using iMessage.
