The Little Known iPhone Speed Dial Hack That Will Change Your Life
Did you get a new iPhone for Christmas? Lucky thing! You’ve probably spent the last couple of days setting it up: importing your music, contacts, photos, messages, everything you need to make it feel like it’s your own. But there’s one last step you probably missed. It’s a step that even many of the most well-seasoned iPhone owners don’t know about, but we’ll let you in on the secret.
Your phone’s 3D touch can be customized to let you call your favorite people directly from your home screen. To set up your favorites and have them appear in 3D touch when you hold the “Phone” app icon, head into your phone app and hit “Favorites.” Then hit “Edit” in the top right corner. Once you’re in edit mode, you’ll be able to drag your favorite contacts around in any order you like.
Now here’s the important part: The top four people that you choose here will be instantly accessible when you 3D touch the phone icon (so choose wisely). Once you’ve selected your top four — and you feel a proper tinge of nostalgia for MySpace — close out the app and press and hold the “phone” button. Your four favorite people should appear right away. When you press their picture, your phone will automatically start calling. It’s never been easier, right?
