TikTok's favourite iPhone hacks are surprisingly useful

We're a little wary of TikTok iPhone hacks. Many of them turn out to be revelations of the obvious. Yes, we know the iPhone can make calls and send text messages, thanks. But sometimes a brief TikTok video can reveal a cool, timesaving feature we never knew existed – and we've been reviewing iPhones for years.

One sign of how good a TikTok iPhone hack really is can be found in the number of likes it's racked up, since we can assume that many of the people hitting 'like' were either genuinely enlightened by the tip or else they already knew and find it a useful feature (see our guide to the best camera phones if you're not sure which phone to buy).
