The 5 tricks for iPhone this week

Every 7 days we will bring you a collection of tricks that are really interesting in a lot of situations.

Record a video on your iPhone with a background song

In a world where social networks and stories are so important in our daily lives, you may want to record a video with one of your songs in the background on more than one occasion. Nevertheless, the iPhone camera app pauses the song that is playing when we start to record a video, but there is a trick with which you can bypass this restriction.

This trick works thanks to the QuickTake function, which since iOS 14 is compatible with the vast majority of iPhone. For record the video with your music, follow these steps:

Find and play a song. In your favorite application that allows music to play in the background, find the song you want to play and start playing it. Stop it just before the part you want to play in the video, and turn up the volume.
Open the camera app. Enter the iPhone camera app, but do not enter Video mode, we are in Photo mode.
We use QuickTake. Now we press and hold the shoot button, the video recording will start and if you slide to the right you can block it.
Hit Play. Swipe down on Control Center and press Play to play the music. Swipe up to return to the camera, which will have continued recording the video.
Record with music. Now you just have to record the video with the background music.

Recover deleted photos

In iOS we have a kind of “Recycle Bin” in the Photos app. By default, when you delete a photo it is not deleted until after 30 days, which are what remains in this trash can. This can be really useful when we accidentally delete a photo or video.

To find this place enter the Photos app, tap on Albums, scroll all the way down and go to Deleted. Click on the photo or video you want to recover and click on the Recover button at the bottom right.

Protect a note with password, Face ID or Touch ID

If you want to protect a note for any reason, from iOS 14 we can protect it with a password, Face ID or Touch ID. You can protect passwords individually, just go to Settings> Notes> Password, turn on the switch and set the password.

Now you just have to enter the note that you want to block with password, Face ID or Touch ID. Up to the right press on the 3 points and then tap on the icon with the padlock to block.
