3 Tricks: Hack Your iPhone.


If you're like me, I love learning new tricks about my iPhone. I stumbled upon these three tricks the other day from the Hack College website; they are aren't well known but they are pretty amazing! 

1. Make a passcode on your iPhone with as many numbers as you want. 

2. Put your iPhone on airplane mode when waiting for it to charge. It will charge twice as fast. 

3. Set custom vibration patterns on your phone.

They go into more details about these tricks on their YouTube video and on their website; you can view the video on their YouTube channel here, and/or on their website, here

What's your favorite trick out of the three? Mine is definitely # 2 -- I am always playing around with my iPhone, so I can blast through the battery life pretty quickly in a few hours. I am also too cheap/lazy to go buy a second charger for my vehicle or at work, so I always have to rely on charging my phone when I get home. Sometimes I am not home for very long before going out again, so this trick will be a HUGE help for me!

  1. The exact same thing happens to me-- I don't realize that my battery is so low until I'm pretty much on my way back out the door. That's a good trick to know!

  2. My favorite? Inverting your iphone's colors! It's a fun way to freak friends out. Go to Settings>General>Accessibility and scroll all the way to the bottom. At the 'triple click home' setting change it to invert colors.

    Try it!

    Triple click the home button and enjoy your now creepy iPhone. :)
