Cool Features on iPhone and IPad that are Often Overlooked-Part 1


iOS_7_Control_CenterDr. Z, when he is talking with friends, family or someone who is interested in ZVRS notices that many people do not make good use of features on the iPhone and the iPad. So, he is going to take time to make those overlooked features useful!


Many of you download a flashlight app.  It is not necessary as it comes built in on your iPhone and iPad.  Where can you find it?  It is on the screen that comes up when you swipe from the bottom (below the screen).  There ‘s a flashlight icon on the left when the Control Center screen comes up.


Turning wifi off and on is an important battery saver.  You can do it quickly when you swipe from the bottom like what you do with the Flashight above.  When you are out of wifi range, it is often a good idea to turn wifi off, because your device will keep looking for a wifi hotspot and that will drain your battery.


It’s right in the Control Center! On the bottom, near the Flashlight icon!

More to come!

So easy so simple!
