Siri Hyphen Trick: There are infinite amounts of secret iPhones and hacks. There’s nothing it can do from using your phone as a scanner to monitoring your precise locations. But the oddest thing yet is the new iPhone hack — the hyphens trick.
For those who are not already acquainted with the trick, the word “hyphen” means that you use the auto-entry of your phone through your home screen search or in notes five times. Many people have noticed that their phone’s iOs is crashing immediately after they’ve said the fifth “hyphen” and either restart their phone completely or shut their current screen and bring it back home.
Fortunately, while the trick is quite alarming (let’s face it — any technology problem might sound frightening!), its impact on your phone does not seem to be harmful. People confirmed that nothing out of the ordinary was discovered and no information was lost after checking your smartphone. You just went to your home screen. It is worth mentioning that only those with iOs 12 seem to be affected, so it does not work for those with a lower iO still.
Although this “trick” is not very useful, people seem willing to try it (perhaps because of the thrill?). Don’t worry, if you do — your phone is going to be exactly as it was five minutes before you said “hyphen.”
