To begin this lengthy Easter weekend, I’ll take you on a hunt for Easter Eggs with this listing of hidden options in your Android or iPhone smartphone which might be kind of hidden.
Sure, like yearly, I’ve to do some psychological gymnastics to give you tech-related articles whereas browsing the Google Development across the key phrase “Easter”. In our lingo, that is known as an Evergreen. My colleague Rubens has already dusted off the listing of Android Easter Eggs.
So I will mud off the plethora of tutorials and different ideas and methods that NextPit has printed for Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, or Apple to current you with three ideas that could possibly be Easter Eggs as they’re nicely hidden in your telephone settings.
The Again Faucet operate to faucet instructions on the again of your Xiaomi
Launched by Apple on iOS 14, the Again Faucet function permits you to create shortcuts to a number of instructions or settings, just by tapping the again of your iPhone. However the function is turning into extra widespread and will be discovered, for instance, in MIUI on some Xiaomi smartphones. The function is kind of hidden, nonetheless, as you need to go digging within the Further Settings to search out it.
Twin Messenger function to have two WhatsApp accounts in your Samsung
You continue to cannot have a number of WhatsApp accounts on the identical smartphone. However some producers like Samsung assist you to have two messaging accounts, offered you’re twin SIM. Referred to as Twin Messenger, this function additionally exists at Xiaomi beneath the identify of App Clone in addition to on different Android producers.
Activate the flashlight of your OnePlus by drawing a V in your display
OnePlus presents a number of gestures you could carry out on the turned-off display of your OnePlus smartphone. Drawing a V on the display of your locked OnePlus activates/off the telephone’s flashlight, for instance.
This feature is hidden within the particular options, but it surely’s nonetheless straightforward to activate. And in my view, it is one of the handy options that OxygenOS presents.
Ctrl+Z along with your fingers within the Notes software in your iPhone
I do not use Apple each day. So I will let the fanboys decide on me within the feedback. However as fundamental as this function is, it gave me such a slap within the face once I found it by chance that I’ve to say it right here. Within the Notes software in your iPhone, you’ll be able to backspace (ctrl+Z) to undo an operation with a easy contact gesture.
Simply swipe 3 fingers to the left to undo the unintended deletion of a paragraph or one thing related. You can even swipe to the fitting to carry out the other operation. This function additionally works within the Mail software, amongst others, however I am positive there are others. Apple has really provided loads of different 3-finger gestures since iOS 13.
That is it for this text which, we should admit, suits completely with the spirit and festive ambiance of Easter. If in case you have higher Easter Eggs than mine, I am clearly (and I’ll steal your concepts to make articles).
All that is left is to want you a fantastic lengthy weekend. Good luck to those that work, as a result of there are some. And see you subsequent week for extra tutorials and different ideas and methods on iOS options launched in 2011.
