Don’t even pretend you already knew all 10 of these hidden iPhone tricks

Don’t even pretend you already knew all 10 of these hidden iPhone tricks

Apple's iOS platform has a wonderfully simple and intuitive UX, but the platform continues to grow more and more complex with each passing year. The iPhone is the kind of device that just about anyone can pick up and figure out how to use quickly, and yet it also hides all sorts of nifty features and functions that even the most savvy users probably don't know about.

Learning about cool secret  features that are hiding in your iPhone is always fun because it makes your phone feel fresh and new, if even for a moment. We're going to run through 10 little-known iPhone tricks in this post. Even if you already know about some of them, we guarantee you'll learn something new.

Delete text faster: When you tap and hold the backspace key on the iPhone's keyboard, the delete rate speeds up after a while. But here's a trick we bet you didn't know — if you press harder on the backspace key on any iPhone with 3D Touch, it'll speed up instantly. Deleting will also slow back down if you release some of the pressure.

Quickly and easily turn off the flashlight:  Being able to turn on the iPhone's flashlight from Control Center while the phone is locked is super convenient.

Your phone will think you're opening the camera app and the flash will turn off.

As someone who walks a dog late at night every day, I can confirm that this trick definitely comes in handy when you've got an iPhone 7 Plus in one hand and a bag full of  in the other.

Open Spotlight in any app: Sometimes you want to search your phone without opening the Notification Center. You can — with any app open, just pull down from the top of the screen like you're opening Notification Center, but stop when just the search field is visible and you feel a little haptic vibration.

Easy package tracking: Did someone send you a package and then text you the tracking number? Tap and hold on the tracking number in the Messages app and an option will pop up right there to track it.

Prioritize app downloads: Via Reddit , did you know you could prioritize your app downloads? If you're in the middle of downloading and/or updating a whole bunch of apps but there's one in particular you need, just 3D Touch the icon and you'll...

Venezuela military defends protests role, backs Maduro congress

Venezuela military defends protests role, backs Maduro congressBy Andrew Cawthorne CARACAS (Reuters) - Decried by protesters as "murderers" defending a dictator, Venezuela's military insisted on Thursday it was not taking sides in the national political turmoil, though it did back socialist President Nicolas Maduro's controversial plan for a new congress.
