Video: iPhone 14 Pro setup tips and tricks

Our videographer Harris Craycraft (@_craycraft) has created a tips and tricks video, which we’ve embedded at the┬átop of this post, for the new iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The fifteen-minute video touches upon the key features exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pros, leaving out ones that are available on non-Pro models such as emergency SOS via satellite and detecting severe car crashes.

Harris opens the video by taking us on a hardware tour, then proceeds to the software, gestures and common tricks for setting up the phone to your liking.

This includes creating your lock screens and tying them to different Focus modes, customizing the home screen and so on. He also highlights useful accessories for iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max and shares some of the best tips in iOS 16. Read: The 21 best iOS 16 features that everyone should be using

Keep in mind that your out-of-the-box experience with the iPhone 14 Pros may not be as you’ve been used to. For starters, the iOS 16 version preloaded on the first batch of these phones has bugs that can cause issues with activation, migration and iMessage. This can be solved by updating to iOS 16.0.1 during setup or after the fact.

Apple has said it’ll release another iOS 16 software update next week to fix other bugs, including the violent camera shake and rattling sound when using third-party apps like Snapchat, as well as excessive clipboard paste permission prompts.
