With iOS 16, Apple has changed the way we use iPhones and iPads. From new features like Siri and iMessage in the Cloud to better privacy protection, there are a lot of awesome things to experience with this update. But there’s always more we could do to get the most out of our devices. So here are 10 iOS 16 hacks that you must try!
Change the battery icon
If you want to change the battery icon on your iOS device, there are a few different ways you can do it. One way is to use a jailbreak tweak like BatteryPeek or battery life. These tweaks will allow you to change the battery icon to any image you want, including a custom one of your own.
Another way to change the battery icon is by using an iWidget. An iWidget is a widget that you can add to your home screen that allows you to customize your device in many different ways. There are many different widgets available that allow you to change the battery icon, and you can find them by searching for “battery widget” in Google.
Finally, you can also change the battery icon by editing the image files on your device. This is a more advanced method and requires that you have jailbroken your device and have SSH access to it. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, then we recommend using one of the other methods mentioned above.
Limit Cellular Data Usage on an iPhone
To save on your monthly cellular data usage, you can limit the amount of data your iPhone uses. To do this, go to Settings > Cellular and scroll down to the Cellular Data Usage section. Here, you will see a list of all the apps that have used cellular data on your iPhone. You can turn off cellular data for any app by tapping the switch next to it.
Add Back in 8GB memory
If you’re looking to add a little more memory to your device, you can do so by adding an additional 8GB memory chip. This is a simple process and only requires a few tools.
First, you’ll need to locate the SIM card tray on your device. This is usually located on the side of the device. Once you’ve located it, use a paperclip or other small tool to eject the tray.
Next, take your 8GB memory chip and insert it into the tray. Be sure that the gold contacts are facing down and aligning with the gold contacts in the tray. Eject the tray and reinsert it into your device.
Your device should now have an additional 8GB of memory!
Add a wireless charger to your car
If you’ve ever been stuck in a car with a dead phone, you know the importance of having a wireless charger. Fortunately, there are a few different ways to add one to your car.
One option is to buy a Qi-compatible car mount. These mounts hold your phone in place and provide charging via an inductive coil. You can find Qi-compatible mounts for both air vents and dashboards.
Another option is to buy a Qi-compatible charging pad and plug it into your car’s cigarette lighter socket. This will provide charging for any Qi-compatible device, not just iPhones.
Finally, if your car doesn’t have a cigarette lighter socket, you can hardwire a Qi-compatible charger into your car’s electrical system. This is more complicated than the other two options, but it’s still doable for the average person.
No matter which option you choose, adding a wireless charger to your car will make life much easier. Never again will you have to worry about being stranded with a dead phone!
Delete all emails at once
You can delete all your emails at once by following these simple steps:
- Open the Mail app on your iOS 16 device.
2.Tap Edit in the top left corner of the screen.
- Select all the emails that you want to delete.
- Tap Delete in the bottom right corner of the screen.
- Confirm that you want to delete all the selected emails by tapping Delete All in the pop-up window.
- Make a folder for your most used contacts
If you find yourself constantly texting or calling the same people, it may be helpful to create a folder for your most used contacts. This way, you can easily access them without having to search through your entire contact list. To do this, simply open the Contacts app and tap on the + sign in the top right corner. Then, select the contacts you want to add to the folder and tap Add To.
Automatically reply to emails with canned responses
If you’re like most people, you probably receive a lot of emails. And if you’re like most people, you probably don’t have time to reply to all of them individually. That’s where canned responses come in handy.
With canned responses, you can create pre-written responses to common questions or issues that you can quickly insert into an email with just a few taps. This saves you time and ensures that your response is always consistent.
To create a canned response in iOS 16open the Settings app and go to “Mail, Contacts, Calendars.” Under the “Composing” section, tap on “Canned Responses.” From here, you can tap on the “+” button to create a new canned response.
Give your canned response a title and then type out your response in the message field. When you’re finished, tap on “Done” to save your changes.
Now, when you compose an email, simply tap on the “Canned Responses” button (it looks like a square with an arrow coming out of it) and select the canned response that you want to use.
Free up storage space on your device and iCloud by deleting apps that you no longer use
If you’re like most people, you probably have a lot of apps on your iPhone or iPad that you don’t use anymore. And if you’re running out of storage space, those apps can be taking up valuable space on your device and iCloud.
So how do you get rid of them? It’s actually pretty simple: just delete the app from your device. But before you do that, you should check to see if there’s anything important in the app that you might want to keep (like photos, documents, or saved data).
To delete an app, just press and hold on to its icon until it jiggles, then tap the x that appears. Once you confirm that you want to delete the app, it will be removed from your device.
If you want to free up even more space, you can also delete any unused apps from your iCloud account. Just go to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage, then select the app(s) that you want to remove.
There are many iOS 16 hacks that can help improve your productivity and experience with your device. Here are a few of our favorites:
- Use the keyboard shortcut Command + Space to quickly launch the Spotlight search feature from anywhere on your device. This is great for quickly finding a specific app or document.
- Take advantage of Siri Shortcuts by creating custom commands for frequently used tasks. For example, you could create a shortcut to open a specific website or compose a new email message.
- Use the Notes app to create quick reminders or to-do lists. You can even share notes with other iOS 16 users via iCloud.
- Save time by setting up custom gestures in the Settings app. For example, you could create a three-finger tap gesture to quickly launch the Camera app.
