In the past, many of the hidden clues we’ve seen on sites and even covered here are only things that are buried in the Settings app in places people usually wouldn’t look. Plenty of people would make their camera flash blink with incoming texts if they knew that they could, for example, but they’re not really ‘hidden’ or ‘secret,’ per se.

Each of the tricks that follow below, however, is totally hidden. There is no hint that these functions exist in iOS, and we ensure that most users don’t know about them. In fact, we also promise that even the savviest iPhone owners among you will get at least one or two things you didn’t already know. In fact, ran this list past a friend who serves at Apple and there were a few tricks that even he didn’t know.
