33 great tips and tricks for iOS 7

Serenity Caldwell and Dan Moren | April 21, 2014
Whether it's the first time you've picked up an iPad or the seventeenth time you've pulled out your iPhone today, there are probably still some iOS 7 features and functionality that you're not familiar with. Don't sweat it: We're here to help. We've collected some of our favorite and most useful tips and compiled them here, just for you.

32. Customize Notification Center's Today pane: Swipe down from the top of your device's screen and you'll visit Notification Center, iOS 7's repository for your alerts. In addition to a list of your current notifications, this pane also offers a Today view, which provides you with the current date, a list of birthdays, the weather, calendar data, reminders, stocks, and a preview of your next day. You can choose which of those features actually appear by visiting Settings > Notification Center and toggling features in the Today section on or off.

33. Tips and tricks with Touch ID (iPhone 5s): If you have an iPhone 5s, you're probably pretty familiar with the device's fingerprint scanner. Here are a few ways to make it even better.

If you're having trouble getting Touch ID to recognize your print, try scanning the same print multiple times, or deleting the original print and starting over. Because Touch ID is constantly attempting to refine your print, it can occasionally get confused and its data can degrade.

In addition, if you can't remember which finger it was that you scanned in, visit Settings > Touch ID & Passcode and put your finger on the Touch ID reader; the appropriate print under the Fingerprints section should highlight in grey.
