iOS 7 has many useful features that saves you lots of time — option to auto fill credit card information on websites is one of them.
If you’re one of those who does a lot of online purchases and pay bills, this feature will come very handy. The feature comes with a security option that prevents other users from misusing your credit card information.
Here’s how to securely add credit card autofill feature in Safari:
- Open Settings app and tap on Safari
- Tap on Passwords & AutoFill under GENERAL.
- At the bottom, turn ON the Credit cards option.
If you have not set up passcode on your iPhone then you’ll be promoted to add one. You can also move forward without adding the passcode, but we highly recommend to set up the passcode.
- Now, tap on Saved Credit Cards and add your credit card information. After that, tap on Done.
Warnings and safety tips
To avoid your credit card information from being stolen, use passcode and never share it with your friends. When you enable the passcode security option, you’ll have to enter the passcode every time you try to autofill the forms with your credit card information.
Make sure the site where you are entering your credit card details is reliable and reputed one. If the site looks suspicious then don’t provide your credit card details.
Tip: Always check for ‘s‘ at the end of ‘https://‘. This means that your information is encrypted while the site validates your card information.
It is best to keep your passcode ON for your iPhone so no one can change the settings in your phone.
And also, change your passcode on regular basis. This will prevent data from being stolen in case of losing your iPhone.

There might always have been a time when you were waken up in the morning wishing you were waking up to your favorite or a relaxing song instead of that classic beeping tone.
Thankfully, your iPhone can do it. You can set a custom alarm tone in your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 7 or higher. We are going to show you how to set up custom alarm tone in your iOS devices. It works on iOS 7, iOS 8 and iOS 9.
Here’s how to set up a song or an audio track as the alarm tone on your iPhone or iPad:
- Open the Clock app on your iPhone
- Select Alarm from the bottom menu
- Tap on ‘+‘ to set up new alarm or tap ‘Edit’ to set custom tone on existing alarm.
- Tap on Sound
- Scroll to the top of the screen and tap on Pick a song (under SONGS)
- Pick the song or tone you want to put as an alarm tone
- Now the song you selected will be set as your alarm tone.
You’re done. That was easy, right?
If you wish to add custom sound, but not the song, then you can download the alarm tones from the internet and put the and add it to your iPhone via iTunes. And then you can set it as your alarm tone as described above.
You can set different tones for different alarms — just set a net alarm and repeat the same steps above. You can also purchase tones directly from iTunes store as well.
Bonus tip: I personally recommend to set up a song that evokes enthusiasm in you so the music will trigger your brain to wake up and unconsciously flow with the music.
