Trust me guys, you’re going to freak when you learn about Guided Access if you don’t know about it already. Just make sure you’re sitting down when you watch the video.

iPhone Hacks…for MOMS!

And, in case you don’t have time to watch… here’s the highlight reel!
Cover it with packing tape! It will keep the cracks together, and tide you over until you can replace it. And yes, the screen is still sensitive to the touch and *should* work just fine!
Fix poor lighting:
Slide your finger up for more light, or down to darken your photo. Get a perfect photo every time!
Keep your kids on the screen you WANT them on!
Keep them from deleting apps, pushing buttons, or getting out of the screen you are wanting them to be on (whether an app, video, or game) by turning on Guided Access! An easy way to let busy toddlers play, without exiting the game and messing up your phone in the process.
Text more efficiently:
Text Replacement is a game changer, guys! Set up shortcuts to replace things you find yourself typing often – like your name, address, email address, husband’s name, or any other word or phrase you find yourself typing often!
Turn any bowl into a speaker:
No need for anything fancy! Pop your phone in a dry bowl, cup, or even a sink to help amplify sound.
So there you have it! Hopefully those simple tips help make your life a touch easier (especially with kids around).
