I’ll tell you what are the 6 settings that I always configure on my new iPhone
Although iOS does not compete in customization with Android, it does offer a series of settings that allow customize the user experience quite a bit. Over the years, I have discovered which settings I like the most and that I always modify so that my iPhone adapts to my preferences.
These settings are the first ones I configure when starting a new iPhone. In fact, it’s the first thing I do after the initial setup, where I sign in with my Apple ID and so on. So I have decided to share what they are in case they can help you improve your experience with the iPhone.
These are the essential iOS settings
Next, I’m going to tell you the settings I always modify when setting up a new iPhone. I will do it in the form of a list to facilitate reading and so that you can know at a glance what they are:
- Put iPhone on silent and turn off vibrations: My iPhones never ring. They never vibrate. And this is the first action I take. In the models that had a mute switch it was easier to activate it, however, now it must be done from the Control center. On the other hand, deactivating the vibrations is done from Settings > Sounds.
- Short Haptic Touch Speed: I am still a faithful lover of 3DToucha functionality that allowed different actions to be performed depending on the pressure and that was eliminated with the launch of the iPhone 11. In its place came the Haptic Touch and thanks to the latest versions of iOS, it is possible to change its behavior so that it is more similar to 3D Touch.
- Disable Lift to activate: The iPhone X introduced one of the best features ever: touch to activate. This feature allows the iPhone screen to turn on with a touch if it is locked. Since it exists, I deactivate Lift to activate in the screen settings because, having the option to touch to turn on the screen, I don’t see the use of turning it on when you pick up the iPhone. Additionally, you can disable the touch to activate in the settings to prevent the iPhone flashlight from turning on by mistake.
- Reduce font size: Although I love the iOS font, the default font size is too large in my opinion. Therefore, I reduce it a little. In this way, more content fits in less space, which is useful in applications such as Settings or in the notifications themselves.
- Put the iPhone in English: I have my iPhone set to English. I find it a more natural experience when using the device, although this point is more of a personal preference than anything else. When setting the iPhone to English, I also add the Spanish keyboard and remove the English to leave only the Spanish and emoticon keyboard. In this way, an emoticon appears on the keyboard at the bottom left to access it.
- Activate the Read Content feature: I always activate this accessibility feature that makes the iPhone read aloud the selected text. You can adjust the voice, speed, etc. It is one of the most useful features available.
These are the settings that I always modify when starting a new iPhone without exception. As I mentioned, iOS offers a large number of settings aimed at improving the user experience by making it more personalized.
