Mastering iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus may looks almost the same as their predecessors, but there’s some important changes on both handsets, from a new customizable Home button, a new Portrait mode on the dual-camera Plus and more. Get to know your iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and master all the great new features.
1. Raise to Wake
With the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, you no longer need to slide to open or press the home button to see your iPhone’s screen. Thanks to Raise to Wake, you simply have to pick up your phone or raise it to see any notifications without any button press.
However, if you don’t wish to use this feature, you can turn it off. Please note that Raise to wake feature is currently available for the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE.
2. Limit Notifications on the Lock Screen
With the iOS 10, your iPhone 7 and 7 Plus can now show a lot of notifications on the lock screen. This allows you to see important messages, miss called, reminders or more. However, you can still manage this information and decide which one you allow to see without the passcode.
To respond a notification in Notification Center, you can use the 3D Touch. Just press deeply on the notification to respond. If you wish to limit the notification on the Lock Screen, you can change notification settings.
If you want to disable some information that can be accessed from your iPhone without your passcode, simply go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode and disable the items you don’t wish to show up on your lock screen.
3. New way to unlock your iPhone
To unlock your iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, you don’t have to do Slide to Unlock again. You have two new ways to it, press the home button or rest your finger on the home button. However, you can still unlock your iPhone with Touch ID the same way you did with iOS 9.
4. Manage the haptic feedback
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has no physical home button, but you can still use the home button by adjusting the haptic feedback when you press the home button. To do this, just go to Settings > General > Home Button. Then, choose your click, from 1, 2 or 3. Level 1 is light feedback while level 3 is heavy haptic feedback. Just try each level and find which level is the best suit for you.
