Even if you think you know everything about the iPhone, there’s a good chance you don’t know these five tricks. Business Insider has put together a video of five “hard-to-find” iPhone tricks that it says are known only to “power users.” While this may or may not be the case, we’d never heard of these tricks ourselves and we imagine that you’ll find them useful as well.

FROM EARLIER: This is the harshest take on the Apple Watch I’ve read yet… and it makes some very strong points

The first trick involves scanning a credit card on your phone that you can use to make online orders. When you’re setting up Apple Pay, you can tap the box for your credit card number. When this happens, you’ll have the option to scan your card. After you choose to scan, line your card up properly within a frame that appears on your device that will then automatically scan the card’s number for you along with its expiration date.

Another great trick is forwarding text messages to new recipients. You do this by holding on a text message until a menu comes up. Press the “More” option and then press the arrow at the bottom right-hand side of the screen. This will give you the ability to forward the text message to a different person in your address book.

These are just a couple of great tricks in the Business Insider video. To watch the whole thing for yourself, we recommend clicking here.
