Today we want to share 5 ways to have fun with your new iPhone 12. It is Fall, which means a few things. One of those things is the launch of the new iPhone – the iPhone 12. The new iPhone is always a coveted item for many people – from athletes, musicals, and movie stars to influencers, “Applephiles,” and everyday people (with enough money to drop on Apple’s annual release).
It always takes a while for individuals to get accustomed to their new phones. From new features, updated interfaces, and different applications – it can take a bit to experience your new phone fully. To help you out, here are five ways you can enjoy your new iPhone.
Calculate Your Friends Height
One feature of the new iPhone producing headlines is the camera’s ability to calculate the height of people. This new feature is not overly important – as knowing people’s height is not pertinent information unless you are writing a police report or trying to buy someone clothes.
Still, it can add some fun when you are out with friends arguing about how tall of you are. Or if you are out on a first date and their dating bio height seems off. Any way you use it, you can have some fun with this feature.
Bet on Sports
While this feature existed on previous iPhone models, many were unaware you could download mobile applications to bet on sports. The best betting apps on the iPhone allow bettors to bet on dozens of sports from all over the world.
Betting on sports on an iPhone is also great when you are on the go. Whether you forgot to bet on the game before you headed out for the night or you are out watching the game and want to jump into the action live, mobile betting apps on the iPhone are the way to go. This feature is also the only one we list you can use to make money to buy your next iPhone.
Use People Detection If You Are Visually Impaired
This feature is designed for blind people or have low vision, but you are welcome to test it out yourself. The new feature “people detection” helps visually impaired people detect people around them to help them navigate the world.
The feature uses augmented reality to detect and relay information to the phone owner. The feature is used in many different scenarios. Some examples include knowing if a seat is empty at the park or on the bus or knowing when to move up when waiting in line.
This feature is one of the biggest positives we have seen from the new iPhone. While the phone may not be without the budget for everyone, lower-priced phones may soon add this in, helping out a significant enough of people.
Enjoy 5G Connectivity
Apple’s newest version of the iPhone is the first to come with 5G capabilities. As 5G – even with the controversy and conspiracies around it – is growing in availability, having a phone with access is nearly necessary.
Depending on your provider and where you live will determine if you have access to a 5G network. However, if you can access one, you will have no problems streaming 4k or doing anything else that requires a lightning-fast connection. If you cannot get 5G yet, do not worry. Everything on your phone will function without connecting to a 5G network.
Take Nighttime Selfies
While older iPhone models had nighttime mode, the new iPhone added it to their front-facing camera. This addition makes it much easier to send selfies in the dark – whether you are comfortably in bed or out at night.
Honorable Mention: You Get to Go Out and Buy a Plug
So, this last – we will call it a feature for the sake of this article – is more of a joke or jab than a feature, but we should mention it, nonetheless. The new iPhone does not come with a plug for the charging cable.
Apple claims it did not ship a plug to cut down on packaging. The cord it ships with the phone also requires a USB 3.0, meaning older plugs will not work. If you have an older charging cable, you can use it, but buying a USB 3.0 plug will help charge your phone faster.
