The newer software and shinier hardware definitely make this phone standout, and if you are struggling to come to terms with all the new technology, don’t freak out, we have got your back!

With these hacks, you will be able to enjoy the magnificent features of the phone and take your iPhone experience to the next level.

How to reset

The best course of action for resetting your iPhone is assumed to be turning your phone off and then on again. Most people tend to think that this will resolve all their problems, and in reality a reset definitely does wonders for your phone, and it is the same for the iPhone 7. However, you will notice that the Home button has been changed on the phone, and isn’t mechanical, like it used to be.
This means that you won’t be able to reset your iPhone by simply pressing the Home and power buttons like you used to do. Luckily for you, we have the ultimate hack for resetting your iPhone 7 and 7 plus. All you have to do is hold down the power and volume buttons at the same time, till the screen turns black and the Apple logo appears on the phone screen.

Go hard or go home

Since we are already talking about the new Home button, and how it has changed, we have a hack for changing how the Home button feels to you. All you have to do is go to Settings > General > Home Button and choose on the intensity of the click you want. There are going to be three different options for sensitivity, with 1 being shallow and 3 being deep.
You can try all the options before applying them one your phone to get the settings you are most comfortable with.

Zoom in on real life

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have come out with iOS 10 and one amazing feature it offers is the ‘Zoom in on real life’ feature, which actually turns your phone into a magnifying glass! All you have to do is go to Settings > General > Accessibility to activate the Magnifier. The cool thing about it is that it’s completely different from the normal zoom, which you use for on-screen things on your phone.
Once you have switched it on from the settings, you need to press on the Home button three times to turn on the Magnifier mode.

According to an anonymous source speaking with MacRumors, the iPhone 6 will allegedly be announced at an Apple press briefing on Tuesday, September 16th, followed by its release on Tuesday, October 14th, 2014. If this rumor is to be believed, this would mark the second time an iPhone has been released in the fall in North America, the first being the iPhone 4S back in 2011.

The source cited an Apple Retail Store meeting in which a senior Store Leader referred to October 14th as an “immense” day for Apple and mentioned that the entire month of October will be very busy for Apple, the retailer, and as a company overall.

But the question remains for the many out there still carrying around iPhones with cracked displays: Should you wait for the release of the imminent iPhone 6 or just bite the bullet and get your current iPhone fixed?

Picture of Apple Store where iPhone screen repairs are made.One moment, your iPhone is in the palm of your hand. You’re connecting with someone halfway around the world from a device that fits safely in your pocket, and then – in a brief instant – that revolutionary tool descends distantly out of reach, making contact with the ground beneath you.

You’ve seen this happen before.

The cracked iPhone is infamous for tarnishing an integral part of our personal and professional lives. Of course, accidents happen, but what do you do when the key to your connections, your ideas, and your personal belongings has been destroyed?

You can’t just ignore it. Not only does carrying around an iPhone with a cracked screen look unprofessional, it also unnecessarily mitigates the iPhone experience.

PhoneBuff’s David Rahimi shows off his personal top 15 tips and tricks for the Samsung Galaxy S5. Some smartphone features are less prevalent than others, but fortunately this may help you familiarize yourself with your new device a bit more than you had previously done.

Samsung Mobile itself shows off the capabilities of the new Galaxy S5 in this official hands-on demonstration. While it may not be the most exciting way to showcase what is virtually a powerful handheld PC, this video is one of the most informative.

  • The Galaxy S5 is available in a variety of color options including electric blue, charcoal black, shimmery white, and copper gold.
  • Samsung’s latest Galaxy S mobile entry is IP67 dust and water resistant and includes a 2,800mAh battery.
  • The Galaxy S5 takes advantage of a 5.1” full HD (1920 x 1080) super AMOLED enhanced adaptive display.
  • It includes a 16 MP rear-facing camera with revolutionary face sensor technology and a more streamlined user interface. Additionally, the camera app is automatically integrated into the device’s lock screen, which allows for ease of access when wanting to take quick snapshots. The Galaxy S5 is the first smartphone to use a combination of contrast autofocus and face detection autofocus, a feature used by many DSLR cameras. The focus can even be changed after a photograph is taken.
  • The Galaxy S5 is the first smartphone to support an 802.11ac Wi-Fi chip, immensely increasing its local wireless network speeds. As described in a previous article, the iPhone 6 is rumored to support this technology as well. It also includes a feature called “Download Booster” which bonds both your Wi-Fi and LTE networks for faster and more stable downloads.
  • S Health helps users keep track of and manage their fitness activities, and features compatibility with smart watches in addition to a heart rate monitor.
  • An interesting new power-saving mode disables color and shuts off all “unnecessary features”, and a fingerprint scanner (similar to the one introduced in the iPhone 5s) is also included. The fingerprint scanner can also be used in combination with your Samsung account, and more intriguingly, can be used to make secure transactions with PayPal.

iPhones with broken screen stacked on top of one another.How often do you see someone using a smartphone with a busted screen?

Probably pretty frequently considering the fact that 1 in 10 Americans are currently using an iPhone with a cracked screen, according to a technology insurance company called SquareTrade.

The company also predicts that 30% of Americans will damage their iPhone in the next 12 months.

According to this ABC report about broken smartphones:

iPod repair similar to iPhone 6 repair.If a recent teardown of the new iPod Touch from iFixit has taught us anything, it’s that Apple isn’t making it any easier to repair our iDevices.

In fact, the manufacturing process is largely the same.

There’s still plenty of glue, clips, and parts that are soldered together, rewarding the new 5th generation iPod Touch with a reparability score of 3 out of 10. Ouch!

The iPad Air and iPad mini Retina, which are more recently designed products (since the 32 GB 5th generation iPod Touch has been around since 2012), are actually even tougher to repair, with their overall reparability score being even lower at 2 out of 10.

Hand removing the screen of an iPhone.So, you’ve dropped your iPhone, have you?

The screen’s cracked and you’re left with three options:

  1. You could keep using the phone as is, broken screen and all
  2. You could pay an expert to repair the device for anywhere from $40 to $100+
  3. You could get a replacement screen and do it yourself for around $40 … maybe

Of course #3 is an option that’s often the cheapest. But if you have no idea how to replace an iPhone screen then you’ll likely spend hours just figuring out how to do it. And time, as they say, is money.

The choice between replacing your iPhone’s screen yourself and having a professional take care of it is not one that should be taken lightly. On one hand, you could do it cheaper yourself; but on the other hand, what if you mess up? Instead of paying a mere $40 to $100+, you’d be out about $700 having to replace the whole device because you accidentally screwed something up with the motherboard while replacing your iPhone screen.

That’s why we always tell people who have never completed an iPhone repair to ask themselves two questions before experimenting with a screen repair …
