Go to Wi-Fi settings quickly

Press the settings icon for a long time, this opens up a small window to the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Battery and mobile data settings.

Arrange Home Screen Icons

Google has removed the pressure sensitive display so several of the force tough actions and long press actions have changed too. You have two choices to arrange your icons on your home screen. Tap the app you want to arrange and hold down, then tap “rearrange apps” which will appear in the pop up menu. The second option is to hold press and drag the icon to where you want the app to appear.

Markup and crop screenshots

First, take the screenshot and a small preview of your screenshot will appear at the bottom left hand corner of the display. Tap the small image of the screenshot and a list of tools appear that allow you to edit the screenshot or add additional text and crop the image.

Enabling Dark Mode

Dark mode is great for using your phone in bed. Removing the annoying blue light that keeps you up at night. Click on your settings icon, head over to display and brightness and you to toggle dark mode off and on.

Getting Rid of Stock Apps

Stock apps are usually apps that Apple needs on the device, however sometimes commercial agreements are made to ensure certain apps are on the device when it's sold.

Simply long press on the app until the X appears then click the X, you will be asked to confirm the removal of the app. If you do want the app again you can simply download it again from the app store.
