By | March 17, 2022

You probably know the basics of how to use your iPhone, but if you’re looking to take your skills to the next level, you can find all kinds of great info on YouTube. From handy tips that make it easier to do everyday tasks like take pictures and connect to wifi to apps that help you master new ways to use your phone, there’s something out there for everyone. Follow this link to check out a few of our favorite YouTube channels related to iPhone usage!

 

Making a call

If you’re one of those people who makes a few calls a day, you don’t need an iPhone. Simply dial as usual. But if you use your phone a lot to talk—for instance, you make 40 or more calls per month—then consider upgrading so that all your calls go through Wi-Fi instead of cellular. That way, you can save money on your monthly plan and still have crystal clear audio. To check whether your carrier supports Wi-Fi calling, call 611 from your device (or 1-800-TELWIRELESS from another phone) and ask for details about how to enable it on your account. Then toggle off Cellular Data in Settings (under Cellular); since iPhones are already unlocked for most carriers—including Verizon and Sprint—you should be able to turn off Cellular Data without needing to unlock your handset. Just remember: after switching off Cellular Data, you won’t be able to make any calls until you’ve turned it back on again!

 

Calling your friends with FaceTime

FaceTime is Apple’s video chat service that allows you to have one-on-one chats with your contacts. To use FaceTime, you must have an iPhone 4 or later, iPad 2 or later, iPod touch (fourth generation) or later. If you want FaceTime on your computer, then Mac OS X 10.6.6 or newer is required. You can also download it onto any of these devices using iTunes as well.

 

Taking photos and videos with Camera app

Taking photos and videos is probably how you will use your phone most often. The Camera app is a quick and simple way to capture moments for later, whether you want to share them with friends on social media or save them in your photo library. To start taking photos or recording video, open your Camera app by tapping its icon.

 

Editing photos and videos with Photos app

You can use Photos app to edit your photos and videos and make them look just as good as, if not better than, they did when you took them. You can even add text, emojis, and filters. To edit a photo or video with Photos app: Open it in Photos. Tap Edit. Make changes to your photo or video. You can change things like exposure and saturation, for example. When you’re done editing, tap Done . Save edited photos and videos to camera roll: When you save an edited version of a photo or video from Photos app, it will be saved as a new file next to its original version. So if you change any part of an image that you want to keep—like making slight tweaks on yourself in a selfie—you’ll want to save those versions separately rather than saving over top of the original image. Even small adjustments can sometimes have unintended consequences!

 

Uploading photos from your computer using iPhoto, etc.

The first step when using your iPhone as a camera is to download your photos and videos from your computer. To do so, connect your iPhone via USB and open iPhoto on your computer. Select all of the media you want on your phone, then select Add from iPhoto’s file menu. This will upload them straight onto your device. If you prefer to use another program (or are having problems with iPhoto), just select import, find your picture in Windows Explorer or Finder, then drag it into iTunes. Your photo will show up in your iTunes library under On My Device and can be synced directly onto your phone. If nothing shows up there (or if you have other files that don’t fit any other category), create a new playlist in iTunes labeled Photos From Computer—(your name here). Just make sure each photo has its own unique name and drag each one into that folder within iTunes.

 

Music, iTunes and App Store apps on iPhone

The iPhone is one of many devices that offer dedicated apps for these services, so you can easily and quickly access them from your device. To open an app, tap on its icon on your Home screen. You can also search for an app by tapping on Spotlight Search in your Home screen and typing in part of its name. You will see a list of matching apps if it’s available in your device; tap on it to open it or download it from App Store. Tap on Music (underlined i at top-left) to browse music library, create playlists and listen to songs by artist or album. Tap on iTunes (underlined i at top-right) to purchase movies, TV shows and music; all content is automatically synced with iTunes app where you can view content anytime without logging into iTunes account again—just connect your iPhone with computer via USB cable when prompted. Tap on App Store (underlined A at bottom-left) to browse thousands of applications available for download; most are free but some have price tag depending on complexity of application.
