At last! The much awaited and talked about iPhone 7 has finally arrived. Now, don’t think that getting a newer model of the same phone will not require you that much effort to go through the learning curve. The iPhone 7 has several changes, from the home button to the headphone jack, that you need to know in order to make your iPhone 7 more enjoyable to use.

Below are five important tips you should learn about the new iPhone 7.

Take Caution About Apple’s Waterproof Feature

The waterproof feature is one of the most exciting things that the new iPhone can take pride of. This is an exciting moment, especially for Apple fans who are just now rejoicing because they can now take their phones with them in situations where they could possibly get wet. However, Apple sent out a warning to iPhone 7 and 7 Plus users about using the charging/headphone port when the device is wet. Plugging something into the phone while it is wet will likely push water further into the device, letting it reach those areas which are not protected against water.

So as a general rule, enjoy your phone’s waterproof feature, but don’t push your luck by doing anything that could possibly damage your new phone.

Try Out the New Alarm Feature

A new alarm feature is available to iPhone users who have updated to iOS 10 or higher. Called Bedtime, it’s a feature in Apple’s alarm clock app that reminds users when they should go to bed so that they can get a full night’s sleep. It also tracks sleeping habits to help users learn more about their sleeping patterns and identify potential issues with their sleep behavior.

Apple has provided a simple setup process that asks a series of questions to set up alarms for going to bed as well as alarms for waking up. The morning alarm also lets you adjust the volume of the alarm.

Buy a Power Cord Adapter

With the new iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, one of the biggest you need to adapt to is the lack of headphones. It can be a bit annoying to think that you can’t listen to music on your headphones while charging your phone. Luckily, there’s now a solution in situations like this.

Apple offers a power cord adapter that lets you plug two cords into your phone at the same time. You can find the official Apple adapter here or you can also opt for a more-cost effective option on reseller sites like Amazon or Ebay.

Set the Sensitivity of the Home Button

Another major change on the new iPhone is the removal of the physical button for the Home button. How is now accessed by a touch sensor instead of the actual button that you can click and feel. One way to get used to this more quickly is to adjust the pressure of your phone’s Home button.

To do this, go to Settings and then go to Home Button. Then, click one of the three feedback levels provided in the menu that appears. Tap Done at the right-hand corner to save your changes.

Make Note of Changes to Force-Restart Your Device

The method of force-restarting will also change on the new iPhone 7. This will be a handy process to learn early on, since it will be difficult for you to figure it out when you need to force restart when an app suddenly freezes up. And because the Home button is now gone in iPhone 7, you will need to hold down the Power button on the right hand side of your device while simultaneously pressing and holding the volume down button on the left hand side.
