So you’ve got the fancy new iPhone 11, but are you making the most of all the new features?

The iPhone 11 Pro is by far the most advanced cell phone to date, and there are a plethora of tricks and tips that are just waiting to be discovered. We sleuthed out the best features so you don’t have to.

Ahead, discover six tips and tricks to ensure you get the most out of the iPhone 11 Pro.

You Can Use Dark Mode

This is hands down one of the buzziest new features brought via iOS 13 to any compatible iPhone. Dark Mode reverses the color scheme on your device to improve readability (especially in dim environments).


You Can Take a Slofie

If you’re in the mood to take a slow-motion selfie, activate the front-facing camera, swipe left or right over to the Slo-mo option and tap the red Record button.

You Adjust Siri’s Pronunciation

Siri is great, but sometimes she just can’t say things right. With the new iPhone, you can correct Siri’s pronunciation by saying, “That’s not how you pronounce ::name::.” Siri will ask for the correct pronunciation, and let you confirm she got it right. Great for those with more unique names!


You Can Swipe to Text

If you struggle with the on-screen virtual keyboard, then you’ll appreciate the iPhone 11’s new swipe to text feature. It allows you to simply swipe your finger on the letters on the keyboard to form words without lifting your finger. After a short while, you might find yourself whizzing through sentences.


You Can Record Video in Super Crisp Quality

If you want to record incredibly sharp video, record it at the highest quality possible by going into Settings>Camera>Record Video and choose 4k at 60 option.


You Can Virtually Bring Back the ‘Home’ Button

If you miss having a Home button, which was last found in 2017’s iPhone 8, you can bring it back. Well, sort of. By enabling the Assistive Touch feature you’ll see a white virtual button appear onscreen, which you can drag to an edge of your choice. Turn it on in Settings>Accessibility>Touch. Tap it to go to your home screen (when inside an app or website), open the Control Center or Notification Center, lock your screen, restart your device, summon Siri, or use multi-finger gestures.
