TikTok tech whiz @kaansanity has shared some very clever hacks you’ll definitely want to know.

First, make sure you’re using the latest version of iOS.

Go to Settings > General > Software Update on your iPhone to check.

iPhone iOS 16 trick #1 – Lock Notes with Passcode

You can now easily passcode-protect your Notes app.

That’s great, as you might be storing private info in there – like birthday gift ideas or a personal diary.

Open Settings and then go to Notes.

From there, you’ll be able to set up a passcode for notes.

It’s also possible to hold down your finger on a note in the Notes app and specifically lock an individual note.

iPhone iOS 16 trick #2 – Multiple stops

You can now add multiple stops while navigating on Apple Maps.

It’s possible to add as many stops as you like.

That makes it very easy to plan a complicated journey on Apple Maps.

It means it’s now much easier to ditch Google Maps for its Apple rival.

iPhone iOS 16 trick #3 – Haptic typing

Finally! It’s possible to get “haptic” feedback when typing on an iPhone keyboard.

That means you’ll feel tiny vibrations when you tap each character.

It’s a trick that’s been available for years on Android.

But the clever feature has finally come to iPhone with the latest iOS 16 update.

Go to Settings > Sound & Haptics and then toggle Haptic on for your iPhone Keyboard Feedback.
