People are just now realizing that the iPhone has a hidden “superpowers” menu with dozens of life-changing hacks that millions overlook
EVERY iPhone comes with a hidden menu full of “super powers”.
It has dozens of clever tricks – so you’ll almost certainly find one you like.
All Apple iPhones have accessibility settings.
They are designed to make the iPhone easier to use – especially when something might cause you to struggle with the device.
But it’s also packed with awesome everyday hacks that almost everyone can enjoy.
This includes a hidden button on your iPhone that you may have overlooked.
We’ve picked some of the best accessibility features for you to try today.
However, explore the Settings > Accessibility menu and see if you can find other iPhone hacks that work well for you.
Make sure you’ve also updated to the latest iOS version – go to Settings > General > Software update.
read it to me
You can make your iPhone read pages to you.
That means you can turn any website into a mini audio book.
Go to Settings > Accessibility, then tap Spoken content.
Now turn on Speak Selection, Speak Screen, and Voice Control.
Then go to a Safari webpage with lots of tests to read and tap the gray square icon in the corner.
This will open a menu – press play on it.
This will read the text aloud using Siri so you don’t have to do it yourself.
You can also speed up playback if you prefer.
And if you have iOS 16, you can do a very similar trick with just a voice command.
Just say, “Siri, read me this page.” Magical!
The back of your iPhone is actually a giant button. Yes, really.
It was added back in iOS 14 and is one of the best iPhone secrets.
Go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > Tap back.
You can assign double tap and triple tap gestures, which you can use to perform a variety of functions.
The best options (in our opinion) are taking screenshots and identifying songs with Shazam.
Control nearby iPhones and iPads
You can use your iPhone to control other nearby Apple gadgets.
The only catch is that they have to be registered to your own iCloud account.
You could use your iPad as a TV screen and control it with your iPhone — or manage a small child with a nearby device.
Go to Settings > Accessibility > Control Nearby Devices > Control Nearby Devices and wait for a gadget to appear.
Connect and you can instantly take control, including using features like the home button, app switcher, notification center, control center, Siri, and media playback features.
You will feel like a real magician.
Lock it up!
Never give your iPhone to anyone else unless you know this clever trick.
It is possible to lock your iPhone to a single app to prevent other people from walking around on your iPhone.
This is great if you have young children or curious friends and family.
Go to Settings > Accessibility > Guided Access and turn it on.
Then when you want to lock your screen, just triple-click the home button (or the side button on newer models).
This protects the rest of your iPhone apps from prying eyes.
Of course, there are many other tricks to discover in Accessibility, so explore your iPhone to find them all.
