One of the reasons why the iPhone is one of the best selling smartphones on the market is because of its large range of features. There are so many things you can do with your phone and you probably won't be aware of all of them. Finding new features can help to make using the phone more exciting. You also could find something really useful. Below you will discover just five things you probably didn't know your iPhone could do.
#1. Letting You Know Which Flights are Currently Overhead
Have you ever looked up at the sky, seen a plane and wondered where the lucky travelers were heading? Granted, it's not something you do on a daily basis, but it can be a fun game to play. Well, now you can find out! Siri can tell you exactly which flights are above you right at this second. Simply say ‘Planes Overhead’ and you will be presented with information on all flights. It may not be very useful, but it is certainly a fun feature you probably weren't aware of.
#2. Flash Alerts
One thing that users love about Blackberry phones is the flash alert feature. Many iPhone users don't realise that their phone also has this feature. If you go into general settings, under the accessibility tab, you can activate ‘LED flash for alerts’. Now whenever you receive a notification, the camera light will flash to let you know.
