What time to be alive … oh, sorry, if you own an iPhone that is.
Not only has Apple fans just discovered that the iPad Pro can work like a giant fridge magnet, but now we're about to have our brains melted by the latest iPhone hack, I bet you never knew (because I did not know and I'm a technology reporter).
What I'm about to share with you can change the way you look at your iPhone forever.
Or, it could not make a difference to your life.
If that's the case, then the rest of us have important things to discuss, so please excuse me.
The spell occurred earlier today, when US blogger Krissy Brierre-Davis tweeted her discovery after she tried to write a text message.
Ms Brierre-Davis has warned us all to the fact that if you click and hold the spacebar, "you can move the cursor instead of trying to drag the cursor with your fat thumb".
And Boy George, it works.
So yes. I'll let it sink for a second.
Now you can roll around your texts effortlessly with your big old thumb, find the perfect place to fix yourself and save precious seconds of life in the process.
This feature will certainly have far-reaching impacts on our social lives and may change the course of history indefinitely.
Arguments of fierce texts between newly separated lovers will soon be a thing of eloquence and class. Just use this spacebar!
Let your thumb do the heavy lifting and sharpen that abuse before you shoot him and his new girlfriend.
Messages like "pak up ur shoot n take the duck off my horse" will soon be a thing of the past.
The insane trick has exploded in all social media, while people reveal their horror at not knowing about the shortcut before.
I mean, Roneel has been stuck in a vulgar battle with his thumb for years so far.
Jen was shaken to the sky by the news.
And Andrew finally found something more satisfying to him than the present gift.
So it seems that this discovery really made the world a better place.
And I'm all about it!
So I picked up the internet to find some more shortcuts for the iPhone that will change your life for the better.
CALL BACK … AND AGAIN … AND AGAIN:
This is a neat trick for those of us whose boyfriends do not answer the phone, even though we've been trying to reach them for the past four years.
When you launch your Phone app To make this call, instead of entering your number from scratch, or scrolling through your contact lists or recent ones, simply click on the green phone image on your device.
This will automatically bring up the last number you dialed.
So keep trying.
THREE FINGER ZUMBIDO:
Use three of your toughest picks to give your pio!
This trick allows you to zoom anywhere on the screen of your phone by simply double-tapping the area with three fingers. Why three, you ask? I have no idea, but it's really fun to do!
To activate the shortcuts, go to Settings> General> Accessibility> Zoom.
Call this sucker as well as Show driverand you're ready for a three finger salute.
WIN YOUR SPIRITS:
Well, butter my toast and call me crunchy, this iPhone trick is a real treat.
If you are the type of person who likes to stay physically real, preferably with their hands and in sweaty conditions, then this is the perfect tool for you!
Just open the boring Compass app everybody ignores and slide left to reveal their own level of spirit.
This level of spirit will keep you in any construction site and is sure to impress the guys.
This is a point to come in handy the next time you are trying to split the bill, which is literally everywhere I go.
It's a scientific fact that none of us can use our brains to drive simple equations, so the humble iPhone calculator really helps to make sums and things like that.
But the worst part is having to hit C and start from the beginning when we make a mistake in the middle of the sum.
Well, we do not need more!
Instead of redefining your baby's math from the beginning, simply slide left or right on the calculator to erase the last number you entered.
We all have them. These secret and spicy photos we do not want to show up when we're showing off our latest holiday photos.
My (very) personal collection involves a variety of sauces that I prefer that my co-workers do not have access to.
Horseradish sauce, ranch sauce and a particularly rare bbq sauce that is now illegal.
Well, now all I have to do is go to my Application Photos, find the saucy photos, click To share and select hide.
Photos will be sent to a "Hidden" folder that I can hide in my various albums.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR ANSWERS:
Do you know what are the three answers you can send to people when you're trying to ignore calls?
Sorry, I can not talk right now.
I'm on my way.
can I call you later?
When what you prefer to say is:
I can not speak now or ever again.
I'm on my way to a concert without you.
Do not call me again or I'll contact the police.
Well, now you can!
Simply go to Settings> Phone> Text Reply and set up your own custom responses. Easy!
