1 . Close all Safari tabs at once
If you're like me and are always opening new tabs in Safari, you probably have a few dozen or even hundreds of tabs open right now. Instead of closing one by one, Safari gives you the option to close them all at once.

Now you will see several options including closing all tabs at once.

2. Create text shortcuts
Is there a phrase or word that you write many times a day and would like to write it faster? On iPhone there are shortcut options that can make your life a lot easier at these times. I, for example, use the shortcuts to enter number of accounts, emails, etc. His goal is to save you time.
To create a shortcut go to Settings and click General:
Then click Keyboard
And then replacing text:
Now go to the “+”
You will now have to define a Phrase and a shortcut. In this case, I don't want to always be writing the Apptuts domain every time someone asks me. I just want to use a shortcut. So in the sentence I put www.apptuts.com.br and the shortcut; app.
This way every time I write app it will pull the whole Apptuts address.
3. Delete only one number in the calculator
One of the major difficulties for those using the iPhone calculator is to erase just one number. If you click on C, all numbers that are there will be deleted. However, you can erase only the last digit if you wish. To do this you need to drag your finger left or right on top of your numbers and the last digit will be deleted.
4. Edit the photo in the Photos app itself
There are extremely useful iPhone photo apps. However, it's important for you to know that if you want to edit your photo directly in the iPhone app you can too. Take a photo and then click Edit:
Below are all the editing options such as cropping, lighting, lighting, etc.

5. Finding words within a Safari article
Often when you are browsing a site and want to find a specific word, you use the shortcut CTRL + F on Windows (here are some very useful ones) or Command + F on Mac. But: and how to do that on iPhone? The good news is that this is possible! When you enter an article, type in the browser bar the word you want to find.
For example, in our article on 30 Strategies for Gaining Instagram Followers, I wanted to look for how many times the word follower had been mentioned in the post.
For this, with the article open, I wrote in the bar the word “followers”. Then I scrolled down and note the last menu “On This Page (56 Matches)”
Clicking there generates a menu below:
Here just click the arrows to find where the words are in the article!
6. Guided Access
Do you sometimes want to give your iPhone to someone to see something in an app of yours, but you don't want them to have access to anything else? Well, guided access solves your problem. It is also ideal for those with children. If you want to give your child iPhone to play a game and you don't want him to have access to anything else, you can also use this option. That is: the person has access to a single application.
To do this go to Settings and then General. Then click on Accessibility:
Then in Guided Access.
Another important thing to do is to click on Code Adjustments. In this part, you will define if Guided Access will be interrupted via Touch ID or through a code you set:
To use Guided Access, you need to open the app you want to keep and tap the home button 3 times. And that's it, anyone who uses your iPhone will only be able to use this app.
7. Recently Closed Tabs in Safari
If you happen to close a tab in Safari and want to retrieve it, it's quite simple. Just leave the "+" pressed:
And that's it, now you will see all the tabs you recently closed.
But if you are tired of Safari and want to use other browsers, I recommend you read this article with the top 18 internet browsers for PC, Android and iPhone.
8. Pause the music using the Timer
If you want your Timer to automatically pause a song, you can do it easily too. You need to click on the Clock and select the Timer option:
After On Finish:
And scroll to the end. Now just click stop playing and you're done: when the time is up, your music will stop playing.

10. Save time by typing website addresses
To save you time typing website addresses, you can use a trick of Safari itself. When entering an address, press the dot and several options to complete the link such as .com, .com.br, among others will appear. See below:

Returning to the previous page in Safari is extremely simple. Place your finger on the left side of your smartphone and then drag to the right. You'll see a picture like this:

15. Leave in do not disturb automatically
If you are driving, you may wish not to be interrupted. If you want to do this, your iPhone can do it automatically. Just go to Settings> Do Not Disturb. Then simply go to the Do Not Disturb While Driving option :
Then select the Automatically option:
Now when iPhone identifies that you are at a speed similar to that of a car, it will put you in no disturb mode.

If you're like me and use iPhone a lot to work, Notes can be your allies. And one feature I've been using a lot is scanning documents. To scan one from Notes just open one and click +.
