Los secretos y trucos de tu móvil que tal vez no conocías | Tu Tecnología | El País

Un par de golpes atrás para hacer un selfie, lower the volume of the timbre automatically when you get to work… It’s easy not to remember that a mobile phone is, first of all, a sophisticated computer capable of doing many things for the user, and getting them done automatically. Por otro lado, las plattformas siguen avanzando a pasos agiantados incorporating new functions and aprendiendo del behavior del usuario. ¿Conocemos bien todos los trucos y secretos del mobile? Let’s review, both on the iPhone and on Android, some of the most interesting ones.

Android

No need to unlock the phone to take a photo

Did you know that you can take a photograph without unlocking the phone? In the vast majority of Android mobiles, a double push of the power button will activate the camera, even if the terminal is turned off; If it is not activated, you can adjust the settings of the system (personalizing the function button).

Recibir notificaciones urgentes aunque se lleven los auriculares

“Es una de las funciones que más utilizó”, explica a EL PAÍS, Christian Collado, coordinator of the blog Andro4All. Consiste básicamente en recibir los avisos de sonidos importantes, aunque se lleven los auriculares; pensemos en el llanto de un bebé, el timbre o estamos esperando un paquete o simply queremos estar pendientes de lo que pasa a nuestro alredored. Once activated, use the mobile microphone (or smartwatch, if you carry it) to capture and identify common sounds, such as a timbre, a smoke detector alarm, a phone or a baby crying. To activate it, you have to access the accessibility settings of the system, and enable the option called “Notifications of sound”.

Debloquear el móvil automatique al llegar a casa

Android allows the use of places of trust thanks to a function called Smart Lock, which deactivates the screen lock in certain locations when connected to certain devices (for example, the car). Para activarlo, basta con ir a (su ubicación y alcance depende del manufacturer) Ajustes/Seguridad/Avanzado/Smart Lock; también puede localarse utilizando el buscador de Ajustes. Once there, se seleccionan los dispositivos de confianza o las ubiaciones en las que se se see que el dispositivo permanezca sin blocarse.

Ver todas las notifications recibidas en el último día

La gestion de las notificaciones puede ser una authentic pesadilla y la tendency —recomendable— consiste en deactivar las no necessarias o ir discardándolas una vez consultadas. Ahora bien, ¿y si deseamos recuperar una de estas notificaciones borradas? Android ofrece desde su versión 11 una cotizada funcion: el history de notifications, en que el que se conservan las notifications received el ultimo día. To access it, go to Settings and type “notification history” in the browser and select the one you want to consult.

iPhone

Dos toques atrás… y se hace un selfie

No muchos propietarios del iPhone saben que cuenta con un ‘botón’ additonal —que no se ve— y configuraba, en su dispositivo. Nos referimos a la parte trasera del dispositivo que, gracias a las funciones de accesibidad, se puede configurar a voluntad del usuario. “Cuando pego dos toques, se activa la linterna”, explains Pedro Aznar, fundador del blog Applesfera; “cuando son tres los toques, se activa la camara”. Actually, each one can configure it as desired in Settings/Accessibility/Turn/Turn back, and choose the function that suits you best.

“Oye, Siri, saca una photo (o enciende la lanterna)”

Apple’s virtual assistant has been hated and revered in equal parts for its irregular performance, but the truth is that it is capable of performing very useful functions. One of them, not very well known, consists of asking us to take a live photo (the only limitation is that Siri only opens the camera application, but does not press the trigger). De la misma manera, y en plena oscuridad le podremos pedir “Oye, Siri, enciende la lanterna”, y se hará la luz. The assistant is capable of performing many basic functions and tries to solve daily tasks.

Agitar para deshacer… casi todo

Another well-known function among iPhone owners consists of ‘unshacer’ (equivalent to Control+Z), which is executed by shaking the device by hand. That’s it, you can undo practically any function executed by a short movement of the wrist: a written text, an electronic mail that has just been eliminated… if we’ve made a mistake, it’s worth a try to shake it off the road. Por cierto, this gesture has an almost anecdotal origin: Scott Forstall, one of the key figures in iOS at the moment, asked his team to come up with the idea of ​​how to add the deshacer function to the iPhone; uno de sus ingenieros propuso, en clave de humor, que habría que sacudirlo: Forstall ‘compró’ la idea y la funcio es ya un estándar en el dispositivo.

¿Key? Mejor escribir mediate gestos o incluso dictar

Los experts lo tienen claro: pulsar las teclas de los teclados virtuales en los mobiles no es la form más rápida de escribir per se y salvo excepciones, uno es más voloz acostumbrándose a los gestos. Not all iPhone owners know that the keyboard of the device allows native sliding writing: it consists of sliding your finger from character to character until the system offers the desired word. So, to write “casa”, you will have to go through each of these letters without lifting your finger from the keyboard and when you see the suggestion in the upper part, lift your finger. This form is, a la postre, más rápida than the traditional one, but not the only one: iOS has greatly improved its dictation capacity in the last version of the platform and commits very few errors, which is an alternative to keep in mind (se accede to it by pressing the microphone in the lower part of the keyboard).
