Get The Most Out Of Your iPhone 7 Plus

Saturday, October 29th, 2016 by | Filed Under: iOS, Smartphones

The iPhone 7 sold out but with all of the love for Apple these days that’s hardly headline-worthy. More interesting? Apple is now selling unlocked versions of their latest device so chances are good that people will continue to upgrade to the 7 and 7 Plus until the 8’s eventual release.


If you’ve already made the switch to this bigger, better handset, congratulations! The specs are great right out of the box but that doesn’t mean there’s no room for improvement. From apps and accessories to adjustments to the standard settings, there’s no end to the ways users can customize Apple’s newest offering. Here are just a few ways you can get the most out of your iPhone 7 Plus:

Toggle Those Taptics

The iPhone 7 Plus doesn’t have a physical home button. Instead this device has a capacitive, sensor-driven disk that works just like the rest of the touch screen – except for one important detail. Thanks to Apple’s Taptic Engine, the disk provides sensory feedback just like a physical button and users can adjust the feeling of that feedback by going to Settings > General > Home Button to choose between three sensory options.


Get Quicker Camera Access

Older iPhones still sporting now outdated iOS version made it easy to take snapshots on the fly with the little camera icon that was always on the lock screen. That’s gone with the advent of iOS 10 and some users may have trouble figuring out how to get to the camera. Luckily, it’s still easy! Just swipe to the left on the lock screen any time you want to snap a pic quick.


Switch to the Right Carrier

Switching devices can mean an opportunity to easily switch carriers, and T-Mobile is a good choice because of the perks it offers. For example, there’s the carrier’s popular BingeOn service and the wireless provider is now offering unlimited streaming for post-season baseball viewing on you iPhone 7 Plus.

I’ll have even more tips for getting the most out of your iPhone 7 Plus in part 2 of this article.

    Hi, love all your articles, they are very helpful to an oldie like myself.
    I would like to enquire if you could do an article on why Apple are not updating/supporting, the OS in the older versions e.g. of iPad Gen 3 – iPad 2, and I daresay a lot of the older iPhones. I did ring Apple on this issue but the lady really didn’t know why? My iPad Gen 3’s OS system won’t be uploaded to the 10.1.1 – I will have to stay on the OS 9.3.5. The lady had a iPad 2. Will this make us vulnerable? The Apple lady said probably all our old iPads will be good for is music and books – disappointing – when my iPad Gen 3 is still like new.
    Thank you for your valuable time,
    Kind Regards,
