One of the new ways to save time while typing on your iPhone in iOS 13 is a three-finger swipe or tap gesture that can be used to undo or redo in any app that allows text editing. You can use this gesture instead of Shake to Undo to undo or redo typing and other edits on your iPhone, whether you're using individual keys or Quick Type. In fact, you can go ahead and turn off Shake to Undo completely, because you'll want to use this new gesture instead!

Ever since Apple released iOS 10 in 2016, it's been possible to use the iPhone as a magnifying glass. You don't need a separate magnifying glass app; this helpful magnifier feature is free! Of course, the screen magnifier is not only useful for those with visual challenges, but also for any of us who has ever needed a reading magnifier to see more detail in an image. Better yet, the screen magnifier includes a light, as well as the ability to adjust contrast and color, which is a big help for those with color blindness. So how does this smartphone magnifier work?

If you've bought one of the latest iPhones, such as the iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, XR, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, or later model smartphone, you know your device has no Home button. Rather than pressing the Home button to open and close apps, you'll use iPhone gestures. We've already gone over how to open the App Switcher: swipe up from the bottom of the screen to just below the center, hold for a second, and let go. There might be a subtle bit of Haptic Feedback when you’re holding to let you know when it’s okay to let go. But once you’ve opened the App Switcher, figuring out how to remove apps and fully close them isn’t so obvious. Here’s how to close one app, or close all apps in the App Switcher on your iPhone X and later running iOS 12 or later.

Did you know you can zoom in and out using just your thumb in the Apple Maps app? Before iOS 11 you needed two fingers, which meant you generally also needed two hands—one to hold the phone and another to zoom. But now using Apple Maps is easier than ever before on your iPhone; you can hold your phone in one hand and use just one finger or your thumb to zoom in and out of maps in the Maps app. Here’s how.

A heavily requested feature for iOS 11 was Dark Mode. Dark Mode essentially turns white space black while leaving media, photos, and content the same. However, we did not get an official Dark Mode in iOS 11, and we haven't gotten one for iOS 12, either. Hopefully this will come out soon because macOS Mojave does offer this feature. For now, though, the next best thing is pretty darn fantastic. Inverting colors on iPhone in the past meant distorting the look of photos and content as well. But iOS 11 introduced Smart Invert, which is (almost) as good of a Dark Mode as we need. Here’s how to turn on Dark Mode or Night Mode in iOS 12 on iPhone, this will invert colors on your display and reduce eye strain.

If you have an iPhone Plus model, you’ve definitely struggled to type on your iPhone’s keyboard with just one hand. It’s not easy to do on a regular iPhone model, and nearly impossible with the larger device. Well, there’s a new hidden feature in iOS 11 that allows you to move the keyboard to the right or left of the screen. The keys become smaller and closer together, but you can definitely type one-handed on any iPhone with this one-handed keyboard. Here’s how to enable the one-handed keyboard in iOS 11 on iPhone.

It's like the Interrupting Cow joke that delights school-age kids everywhere; you activate Siri and start speaking your request, only to be interrupted by, "Here's what I found on the web." At which point you probably say something like "If you'd just let me #$@%ing finish, Siri, you'd know I'm trying to call my wife, not do a web search!"  I can't help you with your anger issues, but I do have a very simple solution to your problems with Interrupting Siri. Here's how to get Siri to stop interrupting you and listen to your entire question.

If you come across an unfamiliar word while using your iPhone, it's easy to quickly get the definition. If you have an iPhone with 3D Touch you can look up a definition with ease. Of course, you can also look up a word if you don’t have 3D Touch by tapping and holding to highlight a word, then tapping Look Up. For those with iPhone 6s (Plus) or later, however, use this tip to 3D Touch a word for the definition.

I had no idea this was a thing until I started looking for an answer. Let me explain: my mom has been slowly adjusting to using an iPhone. With her old flip phone, she merely closed the phone to hang up the call. But with an iPhone, you have to press the big red dot on the screen. But for her, it felt more intuitive to press the Home button. So she found herself thinking she’d hung up the phone when she hadn’t. This let me to search for an easy solution. There’s no setting on iPhone that allows you to use your Home button to hang up a call, but you can use a different button. Here’s how to hang up your iPhone with the click of a button.
