5 things you didn’t know your iPhone could do

Your smartphone is a lot smarter than you even knew. These are 5 new ways to use your iPhone that you might not have thought of.

It’s hard not to spend way too much time on your smartphone. It’s how you keep in touch, keep track of stuff, keep lists, keep photos, and so much more.

Did you know your iPhone can even help straighten and brighten your smile? These are just a few of the grin-changing things you can do on your smartphone.

1. Help straighten your smile.

Your aligners are doing the heavy lifting when it comes to straightening your teeth, but your phone is an important part of the process, too. With our remote teledentistry model, we rely on the 90-day check-ins and photos to make sure your smile is moving according to schedule and connect you with your doctor. Those selfies and check-ins on your phone are a crucial step in getting a straighter smile.

2. Help whiten your teeth.

Our bright on™ premium teeth whitening is the fastest, easiest, and most affordable way to professionally whiten your smile at home. The LED accelerator light plugs right into your phone to speed up the whitening process so your smile can reach its brightest bright even faster. After applying the bright on gel, plug the light into your phone using the appropriate attachment and insert the light into your mouth. Keep the light on for up to 10 minutes, and you’ll start seeing results right away. (Our LED accelerator light is Android compatible, too.)

3. Use it as a level without downloading an app.

Everyone knows you can download an app for this, but did you know that iPhones have a level tool built right into the Compass app? Just swipe to the left, and a second screen with a level will appear. Because who actually has a physical level these days? Hanging pictures with two hooks just got slightly less painful.

4. Find out where the heck you parked your car.

A genius update to Maps on your iPhone lets you locate your parked car right from your phone. Maps marks the location of your car with a pin on the map when you turn your car off, so you can easily see where your parked car is and even get directions to it. You can take advantage of this feature as long as your car is Bluetooth compatible and has been paired with your phone.

5. Take a photo while you’re recording a video.

Don’t miss out on the perfect shot just because you’re busy recording a video. You may have noticed that tiny white button in the corner of the screen while you’re filming on video mode. Tap it, and it automatically saves a photo to your camera roll. Now that’s something to grin about.
