iPhone Features - The Exclusive Features of iPhone That Make It Popular

By: Alexa Peters

With all the attention the iPhone has received, one can now assume that everyone should know about it or should have heard about it at the very least. The real question now is not what it is, but what it has and what it is capable of doing. Basically, what are the iPhone features?

The most important feature of the iPhone is its revolutionary multi-touchscreen. This screen voids the necessity for any mechanical button to appear on this gadget. In its simplest terms, this allows you to use your bare fingers to operate it unlike other smart phones that either sport mechanical keyboards or require the use of a stylus. Just by tapping on the screen with your bare skin, you are able to go through its menus, dial numbers, compose SMS or e-mail messages and use the entire functionality of this gadget.

Its 3.5-inch screen displays a virtual keyboard for the purpose of inputting text. Although most people are skeptical about typing with a virtual keyboard, it should be known that Apple has predicted this difficulty and provided the iPhone with features such as automatic spell check, word prediction, and a customizable dictionary that allows its users to add new words. More than this, it addresses the issue of typographical errors common to touch-screen usage through its self-correction capabilities.

When it comes to scrolling, no wheel is found at the side of the iPhone. Instead, the functionality of the multi-touch screen allows its user to scroll up or down just by dragging a finger towards the desired direction. The speed by which it is programmed to scroll is proportional to that of the dragged finger.

Apart from this, the multi-touch screen also enables many other functions such as multi-touch sensing which is commonly used for magnifying or reducing either photos or web pages. Using this, the user can manipulate the size of some objects by simply placing two fingers at either side of the object and then moving them either father apart or closer together. This will not distort any images because they are scaled and resized according to its original dimensions.

It also features automated functions through its specially designed sensors. These sensors work in many different ways. It rotates the screen display according to the position of the phone and also puts the phone on stand by mode by turning off the display when it is held up to the user's ear.Additionally, they automatically adjust to the appropriate brightness required for any given environment.

These are but some of the exclusive features. Most, functions of any other hand held are in place and unlike other all-in-one gadgets, Apple has not compromised the functionality of one feature over another. Now you should have a better understanding of the iPhone features.
