How to screenshot a whole entire page, and 6 other iPhone hacks you probably didn't know.

Gather around folks. 

We just stumbled up a genius iPhone hack that has us questioning our entire existence. Not really, but we do wish we knew about it way earlier than right now. 

You see, it turns out there's a way to turn your iPhone into an actual scanner. Who knew?!

The idea was brought to our attention by Brandi Mumma, who shared a Facebook post explaining how you can scan documents right into your iPhone. And it's ridiculously simple. 

"Did you know, if you have an iPhone or iPad you actually have a scanner," Brandi wrote.

"Parents, if you are planning to scan any work to your teachers or teachers if you are scanning work to your students you can use the 'Notes App'."

"Open a new note, press the camera button, the option to scan document will pop up. Once the document is scanned you can email it easier than a photo, plus you can add notes to the scanned doc."

Yep, our minds were blown too.

From how to charge your phone faster to the simple way to delete messages, here are five other iPhone hacks you probably didn't know about (and will change your life for the better). 

1. How to charge your iPhone battery faster.

Anyone who's accidentally fallen asleep without putting their phone on charge knows the pain of waiting for it to fully to recharge the next morning. 

Thankfully, there's a simple trick to make it charge a lot quicker and all you need to do is put it on Airplane Mode. 

Airplane Mode turns off a bunch of features on your phone such as cellular and Wi-Fi networking, which will help speed up the charging process.

Voila. 

2. The apple on the back of your phone actually has a purpose.

Ok, so it turns out the apple logo on the back of your phone actually does something.

As explained by this viral Instagram video, you can set up your phone to perform a specific function when you either double or triple tap the back of your iPhone. 

Unfortunately, the hack doesn't seem to work on iPhone 7s or the models below that. Sorry folks.

6. How to take a screenshot of an entire page. 

So, it turns out there's a way take a screenshot of the ENTIRE page on a website or article, rather than just what's on your screen. And our lives will never be the same.

In a now viral TikTok video, user @ambre_skye explains how you can easily save a full-page screenshot of a webpage by clicking the 'full page' button. So simple and yet... so life changing. 

After you take the screenshot, you can save it to the files app on your iPhone or send it to yourself or someone else in an email. 

The only down side is the function only works on Safari, so if you're a Google Chrome user don't forget to switch over to Safari before you take the screenshot. 

And for my Android friends (yes, I see you), you also have the option to save a screenshot of an entire page by hitting 'scroll capture' or another function depending on your type of phone.
