Iphone 5s/iOS7 Tips and Tricks

With everyone testing out Apple’s new phones and operating systems, there are quite a few tricks that can be picked up along the way to optimize your experience. While we don’t sell iphones in the bookstore, many of our students coming in to buy Apple computers or devices are using the new operating system and we wanted to share a few tips with them.

1. Changing Text Size

When you launch settings, you can go to “General” and then to “Text Size” and drag a slider to adjust until you find the perfect text size for you. The text on the screen changes as you move the slider so you can perfectly see what your chosen size will look like.

2.Continuous Shooting/Burst

This is not completely new for iOS7, but many people do not know about continusous shooting mode. While in the camera app., hold down the shutter button and rather than taking one picture, your phone will continuously shoot pictures and dave them to your image roll. You can use this along the new “Burst” shooting function that allows the iphone 5s to take 10 photos per second.

3.Do Not Disturb

If you bring your phone to class or if you use it as an alarm as you sleep you don’t always want to hear or see push notifications. The “Do Not Disturb” feature was improved on iOS7. Navigate to Settings>Do Not Disturb to silence calls, texts, or other notifications even when a phone is unlocked.
