Updating iphone firmware takes forever
A very underused, yet convenient feature is that you’re able to set the function for double-clicking the Home button.By default, this just brings you to the Home screen, meaning no different function than clicking the Home button once.You’d be surprised to know how many people don’t know how to turn their phone completely off.I’m not talking about “locking” the phone where you simply press the Sleep/Wake button on the top of your phone.If your battery’s almost dead and you’re nowhere near some way of charging it your best bet is to turn it off if you’re going to need it to make a call or check something on the ‘net (assuming you can forego and incoming calls/SMSs).And if your phone’s been acting flaky, where apps are starting to get really slow or behave unexpectedly, turning your phone off then back on usually gets things back to normal.This may be the most convenient, yet hidden feature on the i Phone.I had my phone for months before stumbling upon it (and I didn’t even stumble upon it by playing around with the phone, but by reading the programming documentation on scroll views).
So, locking your phone is actually more like “display sleep” on your Mac (⌃⇧⏏ or Control-Shift-Eject for those of you who can’t read Macroglyphics).For a while, I was under the false impression that locking the phone was equivalent to putting your Mac to sleep.But when your phone is locked, the screen turns off but the app that’s running at the time continues to run.The i Phone, like the Mac, is extremely simple and intuitive to use.
Odds are that you’ve never even cracked open the user manual since the way just about everything works is pretty obvious. there are many small “convenience features” that are often hidden away.
As far as I know, there’s no corresponding way to scroll to the bottom, though.
