10 Ways You’re Not Using Focus on iPhone, But Should Be
Find the hidden features in iPhone's new Focus mode.
With the launch of iOS 15, Apple supercharged the Do Not Disturb feature for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac, giving you the options to precisely configure which apps or people can and can’t get in touch with you when Do Not Disturb mode is engaged.
Now you can use multiple Focus modes for working, sleeping, reading, and more. That’s a lot of freedom. However, when you’re starting out, configuring Focus can feel a bit overwhelming (which often happens when a lot of new features drop in a single update).
If you already use Do Not Disturb or a Focus mode for working, use these tips to improve your experience even further.
I almost feel silly writing this out but… did anyone else know there’s a built-in gesture to bulk select messages, emails, notes, and more across Apple’s stock apps? Rather than using a sub-menu to put the items in “Select” mode and then ticking the circles that appear in each row, you can just swipe two fingers down the list to select every item in the list that your fingers touch.
The iPhone SE3 features the same A15 Bionic chip found in the iPhone 13 lineup, and it adds 5G connectivity. Ceramic Shield front and back. Cost is $429. But there's also a couple of surprise iPhone SE 3 drawbacks.
