Since phones don’t come with manuals anymore, most people learn how to use them through trial and error. An iPhone user came across a useful hack and decided to share it on social media.


The hack she learned can actually halve your texting time. However, the hack didn’t seem to be a new thing to some iPhone users who’ve known about it for a while.

Krissy Brierre-Davis is a Twitter and iPhone user who was so shocked when she found a hack for her phone that she had to take to social media to share it. Thousands of people online saw her post and were equally surprised and tried the trick for themselves.

However, a few users claimed that they already knew about the texting hack. Brierre-Davis shared a snapshot of her phone describing how the hack worked.

The Twitter user also asked people: “How come you guys never told me this iPhone trick?” Many people tried the trick and found that it did work.


One user even called the hack “life-changing information.” Someone else revealed that the hack only worked on specific iPhones.


Another iPhone user noted a separate hack that allowed you to able to highlight words using the same tip. People with the iPhone 7 will be thrilled to know that there are a number of secret tips and hacks that come with the phone.


This hack works for most smartphones, you can charge your phone faster if you engage Flight Safe mode. Not many people know that the iPhone is always gathering data on its user in the background.


It knows the apps you're using the most, how much data you're going through, and where you are. To check this out you need to go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations.

The iPhone 7 also allows you to correct Siri's mispronunciations. All you have to do is say: "That's not how you pronounce…" and Siri will ask you for the correct pronunciation and then it will let you check if it's got it right.
