I'm here to make your life easier! Learning to operate a gadget is always an exciting process. Getting to know the ins-and-outs of a device takes time while mastering all the features and functions may be next to impossible.
Thankfully, we have a few essential tweaks a iPhone user could easily do right out of the box. These quick settings changes should help make your new device secure, personal and more accessible.
1. Turn on Auto-Lock
More than a battery saving feature, setting your phone to auto-lock is also a security necessity. You don't want anyone snooping around your phone if you accidentally leave it on your desk.
To turn this on, go to Settings >> General >> Auto-Lock. Here you could set it from 30 seconds all the way to five minutes.
2. Register more fingerprints for Touch ID
The iPhone's fingerprint sensor is a really quick way to unlock the device via Touch ID. It is also a convenient way to secure apps and Apple Pay without the need for a password.
But did you know you could register more than one fingerprint for Touch ID? In fact, for more flexibility, you could register up to five fingerprints.
To do this, under Settings >> "Touch ID & Passcode", enter your passcode, then select "Add a Fingerprint." Follow the guided prompts until the whole process is complete.
