Have a new iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, or 12 Pro Max? These new iPhones are packed with new features, both in the software and in the camera. Here we show you nothing more and nothing less than 12 best iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, or 12 Pro Max tricks so you can get the most out of it.
1. How to View Battery Health
Battery health is very important on mobile devices, and Apple offers a quick way to check the battery life percentage of the iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max. We just have to go to Settings> Battery> Battery health. In the option ‘Maximum capacity’ you will see the status. It is recommended to check this from time to time to rule out battery failure.
2. Double Tap to Perform Actions
The iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max also include the option of double-tap to perform actions. For example, double-tapping to take a screenshot. To activate this option, go to Settings> Accessibility> Touch> Touchback. Select what you want to do by double-tapping or triple-tapping.
3. How to Take a Wide Angle Photo With Night Mode
One of the novelties of the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro is that we can now take pictures in night mode with the wide-angle camera. This makes the images in night situations have better color and brightness. To take a wide-angle photo with night mode, go to the camera and press the x1 button to activate the wide-angle.
If the camera detects that the scene is a bit dark, it will automatically activate the night mode. From the yellow button that appears in the upper area, we can adjust the exposure time so that the photograph has more or less light.
4. How to Enable Mirroring on the Front Camera
By default, the front camera takes photos without reflection. In other words, the angle changes when taking the image, since it appears as if someone were looking at us from the front. From the camera settings, we can activate the reflection so that the selfie comes out as we see it in the camera preview. That is, without modifying the angle in reverse.
To do this, go to Settings> Camera> Mirror front camera. Activate this option.
5. Change the Default Browser on iPhone 12
Do you want to change the default browser on your iPhone 12 or 12 Pro? You just have to go into settings and find the browser app you want to set by default. For example, Google Chrome. Next, click on the ‘Default browser app’ option. Select the application you prefer.
