Apple, the smartphone giant, has significantly improved on last year’s phones with its latest 11 series – iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max. All of these handsets have exceptional features that will definitely brighten your day. Here’s a quick look at the ones that will make your life easier.
Secure your data well
I know how possessive you are about your iPhones, but what if you lost your phone and couldn’t locate it even after using the ‘Find My Phone’ feature? You’re probably worried to death about all your personal data on it. You wouldn’t want anyone going through them, right?
Don’t worry, Apple is just as concerned about your data. If someone other than you try to open your phone, there’s a provision to reset it after ten wrong unlock trials.
To enable this feature, just go to your iPhone 11 Settings –> Face ID and Passcode –> Erase Data. This will also allow you to remotely erase the data on your phone if you want.
I know, I know, just the thought of erasing your data is enough to send chills down to your spine, but it’s either that or you allow a stranger to access it. Desperate times call for desperate measures!
Try out the dark mode
This is a long-awaited feature and I know you guys have been yearning for it. Well, it’s here!
The new range of iPhone 11 has a dark mode so that your screen goes a little easy on your eyes and the battery itself. Especially when both iPhone 11 Pro and Max have OLED displays.
To activate, go to Settings –> Display and Brightness –> Appearance and choose between Light and Dark mode!
Feel like reading a book at night without ruining your eyesight? Now you can, thanks to the beautiful Dark mode feature on your iPhone.
Personalise your notifications
Hate those notifications that keep popping up on your phone? Miss updates from important apps because they’re lost among other notifications? Now, you can enable, disable, or just choose to see notifications from different apps. The choice rests with you.
iOS 13 allows you to choose the notification pop-up according to your convenience and privacy. And the best part is that you can set a customised pop-up for each app.
Choose who you want to share your personal info with
Fed up of your friends adding silly photographs to your contact details? Now you can personalise your own image and contact info as it appears on others’ iPhones thanks to the latest iPhone 11 settings.
Create your own photo and contact info which you want will be displayed on your friends’ iPhones. If you don’t want everyone to see it, you can choose to share this personalised info with only your contacts.
Embrace the automation
The iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max take connectivity to the next level. You can choose to forward calls, texts, and FaceTime to all other Apple devices except Apple TV. This is a must for Apple fans who usually have multiple Apple devices such as MacBook, Apple Watch, or iPad. You can’t always be with your phone, laptop, or iPad, but you can receive important calls and texts on all the devices.
More power to you!
Filter unwanted stuff
This is a great feature for weeding out unwanted calls and messages. Whether you’re getting calls from unknown numbers or spam texts, iOS 13 will allow you to strain texts and silence unknown calls through iPhone settings.
So, that’s it for now! I know I haven’t talked about many iPhone 11 features here, but I cannot cover everything in one article (I didn’t want clutter). There will be a follow-up article for the rest of the features we love about the iPhone 11 series, so keep an eye out for it on our blog.
