11 Things You Should Know About Your Smartphone
There probably isn’t a person now who hasn’t got an absolutely indispensable smartphone in their pocket. However, despite this fact, there aren’t many people out there who know about all the incredible things these devices are actually capable of.
We honestly don’t know why people don’t use this feature more. Most phones come with it, and it basically puts your phone on silent for a set period of time.
We at EVERTUDE would like to end this vicious circle and tell you about 8 of the most fascinating features of Android.
1.The easiest way to save your battery power
If you choose a black or simple dark background for your screen, the automatic pixel highlighting will turn off, and you’ll notice that your device keeps its charge for much longer. This feature isn’t available for all Android devices yet, but it’s already implemented on most Samsung smartphones and tablets. Give it a try!
2.Cast your Android screen
For a number of years, you’ve been able to broadcast your Android phone or tablet’s display to the larger screen of a television using a Chromecast. In addition to beaming video from all the usual movie and TV apps, this streaming device can mirror your phone. Take advantage of a mirroring shortcut in the Quick Settings pane, which you access by dragging down from the top of the screen with two fingers. You should find a Cast option in this menu.
If it doesn’t show up, there’s another way to set up mirroring. First, check to make sure you’ve installed the Google Home app for Android. You probably already used this program to set up your Chromecast. Open the app, tap Cast screen/audio from its menu, and then choose your Chromecast. Your device’s display should appear on the big screen.
3. Bedtime – iPhone
Did you know that your iPhone can remind you when to go to sleep, as well as wake you up at a scheduled time?
The Bedtime function is a cross between Do Not Disturb mode and an alarm. You can find it on your iPhone in the clock app, right between your alarm and the stopwatch.
4. Lock people out of specific apps
We’ve all been there – someone’s asked to use our phone, and we’ve scrambled to hide certain pictures and information we don’t want others to see. There’s actually a way with Android devices to hide this with a few button presses so anyone you lend your phone to for a few moments will only be locked to one area until you enter your phone’s lock screen code. That way, they can’t use parts of your phone unless you put the code in again.
Go to Settings, then Security, and turn on Screen Pinning. When turned on, open the app that your friend or loved one needs to use. Open Overview with the square button below the phone screen. You’ll see an icon that looks like a pin in the lower right corner. Tap it, and it’ll remain pinned to the front. Voila! Now that’s all anyone can use until you enter the password.
5. Encrypting Your Phone Data
