iOS 10 Tips And Tricks: iPhone 7 plus tips and tricks hidden in iOS 10

moontechnolabscom on Community Forums - Apple sold more iPhones than expected last quarter thanks to the successful launch of its new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus flagship handsets. The new iPhones might look familiar — a bit too familiar for some people, in fact — but almost everything about them has been improved. They’re faster, they have better displays, they’re more powerful, they have better battery life, and they even have better battery life than their predecessors. With the holidays coming up, millions more people will soon find themselves with new iPhones over the course of the next two months.

Below, you’ll find 10 iOS gestures that are available on your iPhone and can potentially simplify your workflow. There’s no indication whatsoever in the UI that these gestures are supported, but we’re bringing them out of hiding right now.

1. On iPhone models with 3D Touch support (iPhone 6s/6s Plus/7/7 Plus), press firmly on the left edge of the display and drag your finger to the middle of the screen to open the app switcher

2. Press on the left edge of the screen and drag all the way to the right edge to switch directly back to the previous app

3. On the now playing screen in the Music or Podcasts app, drag a finger horizontally across the artwork to scrub through a track; move your finger up or down vertically to speed up or slow down your scrubbing speed

4. In the calendar app, tap and hold on an event in the Day view to drag it around and change the time of the event

5. After opening an image, swipe down on it in the Photos app, Messages app and other apps to quickly close it and go back to the previous view

6. Tap the bottom edge of the screen in Safari to bring the toolbar and URL bar into view
