That feature is the unobvious one, so I found it a couple of months ago but completely forgot. But yesterday, I needed to make a perfect arrow shape on my iPhone’s screenshot and remembered this simple trick.
Yeah, to be fair, I’ve spent around 20 minutes calling in my memories what I exactly need to do, but the result was worth a shot.
This trick will help to turn your drawing from a complete mess to the perfect circles, arrows, dialogues, and other shapes and signs.
That works with almost all shapes. All you need to do is just draw them messily, just to let the algorithms catch what you want to, and hold your finger on the screen after your drawing is over. After a couple of seconds, your messy drawing would be transformed into a shape.
The same trick works in the Notes app as well.
That’s not just funny but also a useful feature, and iOS is full of such tricks. For example, you can take a full-webpage screenshot on your iPhone or iPad and save it as a PDF or put a magnifier glass over the screenshot to highlight a specific part.
The only thing I don’t like about Apple is that company hides such features behind gestures, touches, and other staff that make them hard to find. However, once you discover them, you realize that these tricks aren’t here for just a wow effect but also can be used in your routine life.
