Hidden iPhone X Tips and Tricks
Enable Dark Mode
Many people do not know that there is a hidden feature in the iPhone that makes your screen even darker. While dimming the brightness is one way, you can go to Settings > General > Accessibility and then enable the Zoom option. Once enabled, you can triple-tap on the screen with three fingers and it’ll show a pop-up menu. Select Choose Filter, click Low Light and your phone will become dark.
You don’t need to download or pay for additional apps to record your iPhone screen; there is a built-in tool that allows you to do it from the Control Center itself. You can easily tap on the tool by bringing up the Control Center and it will start recording the screen after a 5-second delay. While it will record any voice coming from the phone, it won’t record audio from outside. The video will be saved in the Photos app.
