People think that there are no secret codes that can be used on iPhones. But this is completely wrong. There are secret codes that can be used on both Android and iPhone.
The fact not known to many is that each phone will have its own set of secret codes. You might not know about the one for your iPhone. This article will help you out.
Before we move further, we need to understand two terms, MMI codes and USSD codes.
What is an MMI code?
MMI stands for Man-Machine-Interface. Simply put these are the codes that contain the star (*) and the asterisk(#) symbols.
They are many categories in MMI. Each category has its own set of purposes. All of these codes are mostly similar, so it is easy to get confused.
What are USSD codes, and how do you use them?
Every smartphone has its own network. There are always ways to communicate between the network and the device. This is where the USSD codes come into play. These codes can be used to get the system info, troubleshoot issues and more.
USSD stands for Unstructured Supplementary Service Data.
