Hidden iPhone Options

iPhone users, especially those with one of the larger displays, may be missing out on a lot of cool options if you only use them in the up and down position, better known as portrait mode.

Apple has allowed for lots of hidden features and options in lots of different apps and utilities if you simply flip it from portrait to landscape mode.

Some apps, like mail, can show you split screens like you’re used to on your computer, just by flipping your iPhone sideways.

The extra screen space when turned on its side allows apps to reallocate where things go in a way that just isn’t possible in portrait mode.

One of the most obvious benefits is the ability to have a wider keyboard when you are typing. 

Not sure which apps offer which features? Don’t worry about looking things up online to learn; just start turning your iPhone sideways on a regular basis to see what’s possible!
