There are lots of reasons why the iPhone is as popular as it is. What makes it great is all the different apps which are customized to make your life so much easier. The piece that follows is sure to show you new ways to utilize your iPhone and get the most out of your experience.
You can set reminders based on location with your iPhone. Instead of saying “Siri, remind me to call work at five.” You can also ask Siri to give reminders when you arrive or leave a particular place, such as to phone your employer when you arrive at home. Your phone will detect where you are and tell you about whatever reminder you set. That way, you get your reminder no matter what time you get home.
Use your iPhone to navigate the neighborhood. If you find yourself in need of directions, you can always use the map feature as a GPS. This makes it easier to locate businesses like gas stations or restaurants. By simply bookmarking the map, access becomes much easier.
It is possible to create an application from any of your favorite websites. First, simply visit the site. Once you do this, tap the “Go” icon. Doing this will allow you to add the site onto the home screen. On your home screen, you can then rename the page to whatever you’d like it to be.
You can increase your messaging speed using this method. You can dismiss dictionary word suggestions by tapping the screen. You don’t have to tap the “x” that shows up after words.
Alternate between scrolling with two fingers and one finger on webpages. If the webpage has more than one box, using one finger allows you to scroll just one box. If you use a pair of fingers, you can navigate the full page.
When you’d like to write an email or type up a note, and aren’t interested in using the words your iPhone is suggesting, you don’t need to press X to get rid of the suggestion box. Just tap the screen anywhere to cancel the suggestion box.
If you have Siri on your iPhone, but like to keep your privacy, you maybe not want to continue to use her. Apple can record and store what you say to Siri. This is done to improve their speech recognition software. They do try to keep all files secure, though sometimes this is impossible.
With Safari, you can do pretty much all of the things you like to do on your browser on your computer; this includes getting images from the Internet. If you see a photo you want to keep on your phone, just press and hold it on the screen. You will be given the option of saving the image to the Camera Roll directly on your phone. Alternately, you can copy the image into a text message.
The iPhone’s popularity is proof of its power and utility. There are so many different things that you can do with your iPhone that you will never stop learning new things about it. It does however, take some time before one can recognize all the features of the phone. Even though you will probably never be aware of every option, using the advice in this piece can facilitate an optimal user experience.…
