Get rain alerts

No one likes getting caught in the rain.

That’s why you need to set up rain alerts on iPhone.

They’re hidden in the Apple Weather app.

Turn them on and you’ll get a notification just before it’s about to start raining where you are.

Go into the Weather app and choose the list icon in the bottom-right.

At the top you'll see an option called Stay Dry.

If that doesn't appear, tap the three dots in the top right and then go to Notifications.

Tap Turn On Notifications, and then activate the switch for My Location.

Then tap Done in the top-right and it should work.

Now you'll get a warning from Apple just before it's about to start raining where you are.

So hopefully you can stay dry!

Back tap!

Did you know your iPhone actually has a hidden button?

It’s the Apple logo on the back of your phone.

You can activate a feature called Back Tap that will perform certain actions when you triple-tap it.

I use it for taking quick screenshots – but you could also make it identify songs with Shazam.

To turn on the feature make sure you've updated to iOS 14 or later. To do that, go to Settings > General > Software update.

Then go to your Settings.

Scroll down and tap "Accessibility" and then hit "Touch".

Then scroll down to "Back Tap".

You'll have the choice to turn on "Double Tap" or "Triple Tap".

Tap to see which features you can now control with either a double or triple tap on the back of your phone.

Move apps quickly

If your Home Screen is messy and you want to clean it up, that means moving apps.

But did you know you don’t have to move them one by one.

If you hold an app down until it wiggles and keep pressing, you can then tap on other apps with another finger to add them to a pile.

And you can even use a spare finger to swipe between screens while they’re all piled up.

This makes it much easier to move apps around.

Free up iPhone storage

If you’ve had an iPhone for a few years, you’ve probably got loads of apps and photos.

In fact, you might actually be running out of storage space.

Thankfully Apple has built a clever trick to free up space quickly.

You can go into your storage settings and choose to “offload unused apps”.

This will remove apps you rarely use from the iPhone – but won’t delete the data you have inside them.

Then you can get them back in exactly the same condition when you need to use the app again.

Set up Medical ID

Not many iPhone tricks can save your life – but Medical ID might.

It’s a special page that you can set up to appear on your iPhone lock screen.
