Top 5 Key settings you need to change on your brand-new iPhone.

Get the most out of your new iPhone. Here are some top GoWireless key settings you should do.

Control Center
To access the Control Center on the iPhone, you have to swipe down on the right-hand side of the notch. Go to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls and choose which ones you’d like to add by tapping the green plus sign icon. You can also customize the order you want them to appear in the control center by dragging each tile wherever you want to use the shortcut icon to the right.

Face recognition
When you first set up your iPhone, be sure not to skip over this process. If you do, you can go into Settings > Face ID & Pass Code and tap Set up Face ID. You’ll then be taken through the process of capturing your features with the iPhone’s camera.

Back up to the iCloud
Since the iPhone Xcomes with some new camera features, you probably don’t want to risk losing any of your photos. To prevent this, go to Settings > Photos and toggle on iCloud Photo Library. That way, all of your memories will be stored in the cloud and you’ll be able to view them from any of your devices.

Auto Lock
To help preserve the battery on your iPhone, be sure to adjust the Auto-Lock as low as possible. It’s set to one minute by default, but you can set it to lock after as little as 30 seconds or even never. To adjust it, go to Settings > Display & brightness and tap on Auto-Lock. From there you can choose from the options provided.

Night shift
Automatically changes the color of your display to a warmer tone in order to filter out blue light. This can help to put less of a strain on your eyes while you’re staring at your screen, especially before bedtime. Go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Night Shift. From there, you can toggle on Scheduled and then choose when you’d like it set for.
