Faster than light and less typo on your iMessages

27 Feb

One big flaw of the iPhone is the typing.
You never type fast enough, your fingers are too big, you may not like the touch screen or you do too many mispellings or spaces missing and you don’t want to spend time to correct them.
There is a nice built-in function that will help you typping: keyboard shortcuts can help you !
It’s easy as 1, 2, 3!

  • Go to “Settings
  • Then choose “Keyboards

and start working on your shortcuts.
Some examples, I use:

  • onw meaning “on my way” (already build in)
  • mp meaning “my pleasure!”
  • ty for “thank you”
  • dnd (for “don’t disturb”), that will be replaced by “I’m in a meeting, can’t talk now but will call you afterwards”

Be creative and you will find yours very own shortcuts.

Also, if you are still looking for sweet emoticones,

  • Go to “Settings
  • Then choose “Add a new keyboards” And choose “Emoji

To use your emoticones while typing, just tap the “world-key” left to the spacebar and the Emoji keyboard will pop up.

Have fun !

Your iPhone goes disco !

Your iPhone will vibrate, ring when you get a notification (a new text, a new message on your Facebook Messenger, …), nothing fancy, all phones do that BUT it can be cool-er with the LED Flash for Alerts.

The LED in the back of your phone will blink like the lights on your xmas tree on 24th of December.
How to configure your LED Flash ?

  • Go to Settings
  • Then choose General
  • Then click on Accessibility and scroll down to LED Flash for Alerts
