People are just realising iPhone clock has thrilling secret – you've got eagle eyes if you've spotted it | The Sun

YOUR iPhone has a clever secret that only true Apple fans will have spotted.

It's linked to your Clock app – and it's high time you found out about it.

Yes, the Clock app that you use to set alarms or find out the local time at your next holiday destination.

iPhone fans are going wild for a hidden secret linked to the app's icon.

One mum revealed that the icon does more than just show an image of a clock face in a post on Mumsnet.

"To think that I really can't be the only person who hadn't noticed this?!"

"Years of owning a smartphone, years of using my clock app for timers, alarms etc.

"And yesterday I realised that the app button on my home screen shows the actual time and not just a stylised picture of a clock!

"I noticed it and thought 'oh it's 4pm and it's on 4pm…what a coincidence' in that way you do when the time is 12:34 or 12:21 or whatever.

"Nothing particularly interesting, you just notice it.

"Then a couple of hours later it was showing ten past six…blew my mind!"

Plenty of iPhone fans replied with their shock and amazement over the discovery.

One answered: "Oh my god, the second hand moves smoothly around as well.

"I’m going to pretend I have a rolex phone."

And one said: "I could own my phone for another 50 years and not notice that."

Another pointed out that the iOS Calendar app also shows the correct date as the icon.

That's not the only iPhone Easter egg, of course…

Secret Steve Jobs tributes

Your iPhone has two clever Steve Jobs tributes you may never have noticed.

The late Apple founder changed the world with his gadgets – so it's fitting that he's remembered with at least a few fun iPhone Easter eggs.

First up is a clever tribute built into Safari.

You'll notice an icon that looks like a pair of glasses.

It's used to add pages to your reading list, but the specs may seem familiar.

That's because they're modelled exactly on the pair of circular frames famously worn by Steve Jobs.

The second Easter egg is harder to find, simply because you need the new iOS 16 software update to see it.

If you go into Settings > Wallpaper on iOS 16, you'll find a surprising new wallpaper.

To Apple fans, it will look very familiar: two clownfish swimming.

In fact it's the wallpaper first shown by Steve Jobs during the launch of the original iPhone.
