iPhone 5 Useful Trick

iPhone 5 Useful Trick, iPhone 5, iOS 7

Here is one of iPhone 5 useful trick that's really helpful, and one of my favorite. iPhone iOS 7 has a quick Control Center to put your phone in airplane mode, activate Wi-Fi, turn on your phone's Bluetooth, access apps, and change your phone's brightness.  You can also easily access the apps like flashlight, timer, calculator, and camera.

It's easy to activate the Control Center in iOS 7, just swipe your screen starting at the bottom all the way to the top of the screen. That's the easiest way to access it. However, sometimes it doesn't work. Here's another way to access it:

1. Double Tap the Home button on your iPhone, just like switching between open apps or closing them.

2. Swipe the display from the bottom of the screen all the way to the top. This would easily activate the Control Center without any fuzz.
