You get a phone call. You can’t really talk at the moment but you also don’t want to just ignore the call. But don’t worry! Your iPhone has the ability to quickly respond to the person via text message with a single touch.
Have you ever been listening to music on your iPhone while jogging and a song that you didn’t like came on? You want to skip to the next track, but you don’t want to have to fiddle with your iPhone—having to unlock it, then having to navigate to the “Music” app, and then having to tap the “next track” button. If only there was a way to quickly skip to the next track!
Alternatively, have you ever seen something amazing happen and you wanted to take a quick snapshot of it, but the moment was gone by the time you got your iPhone out, unlocked it, opened the “Camera” app, and snapped the picture. If you could have just taken the picture a second earlier, you would have been able to capture an amazing picture. If only you could quickly access your iPhone’s “Camera” app without having to go through all of those steps.
You’re in luck! Both of these situations have a quick and easy remedy.
This brief tutorial will teach you how to quickly access (1) music controls and (2) your iPhone’s “Camera” app, all without having to unlock your iPhone and navigate to the respective app.
