ORLANDO, FL (IVANHOE NEWSWIRE) – Your smartphone is a useful everyday tool whether you’re calling, texting, surfing the web or tracking your health.
But there are more things you can do with your smartphone than you think.
For example, if you have a hard time getting up in the morning, you can put your phone in a large glass cup next to your bed to wake you up louder.
You can also set up emergency SOS settings on your iPhone or Android so your phone can call for help and notify your emergency contacts of your location by pressing the power button five times.
You can also retrieve deleted photos by tapping “Library” in the Photos section of Android and then tapping “Trash”. Then press your finger on the photo you want to recover and select “Restore”.
On iPhone, tap ‘Albums’ under Photos, then scroll down to ‘Recently Deleted’. Select the photos you want to restore and select “Recover”. Both Android and iPhone can restore photos deleted within the last 30 days.
GPS is one of the biggest battery drains, so you can save battery by taking a screenshot of directions.
If you’re worried about losing your phone while on vacation, you can get it back by setting it to show contact information on the home screen. Enabling “Find My Device” on Android allows Google to locate your phone and remotely lock or wipe content from your Google Account.
