A particularly favored feature is the voice-over screen recording.

Here's another noteworthy feature: the ability to control the brightness of your flashlight. It's not just a simple 'on or off'; there are various levels of light intensity.

A particularly handy hack involves using the search bar that appears when you swipe down on the screen as a calculator. This means you may never need to open the calculator app again.

And here's one you might be familiar with, as it tends to pop up quite annoyingly: shaking your phone to undo an action.

For instance, if you accidentally delete something you were typing in your notes, a simple shake of your phone can undo the entire process.

You are welcome!
