iPhones have been around for over a decade, but have these hacks? Here are six amazing hacks that have been made throughout these years.


1.) Text Shortcut Hack


Use the built-in text replacement feature to expand snippets of text into longer sentences. Go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> Text Replacement and click on the + button. Type the shortcut and the phrase and hit the Save button.


2.) Space Bar Hack


While typing, if you have misspelled  the word and don’t want to delete the entire  word and start over hold down the to get between letters and rewrite.


3.) Night Shift Hack


This feature adds a yellow tint over your screen at night. It’s really helpful if you’re the kind of person who reads on their phone at night. Go to Settings -> Display & Brightness -> Night Shift and put it on a schedule of sunrise to sunset.

4.) Talk to Text Hack


For those who don’t feel like talking, pressing the microphone in the bottom right corner of the keyboard makes you able to text through speech.

5.) Dark Mode Hack


iOS 11 has a Smart Invert feature that essentially brings a dark mode to iPhone. This feature turns the white background into black and the black text into white. And it doesn’t do anything to media like pictures and videos. Enable it from Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Display Accommodations -> Invert Colors -> Smart Invert.


6.) Shake Hack


If you have accidentally deleted a word or type something you don’t want, all you need to do is shake your phone to undo your last action.
