You would have to live under a rock to not be familiar with Apple’s iPhone. This multitasking smartphone has set the bar for technology and communications and has developed a cult following. This article will address a few tips and hints that will help you use all the features that the iPhone offers to its owner.
Location-based reminders are possible thanks to Siri. Rather than saying “Siri, let me know to call my job at 5pm.” Instead, you can request: “Siri, tell me to contact the office when I reach my home.” Then, once you reach home, Siri will sense it and remind you. Using this can make it possible to set reminders even when you are not sure when you will be home.
An iPhone can act as your GPS. If you try the map feature with the GPS when searching for directions, you can locate the best route to your destination and even find gas or shops along the way. Bookmark the map for access whenever you need it.
Did you know that any website you visit can be made into an app? Navigate to the site in question. Once you are there, tap on “Go”. This will give you the option to add this site to your home screen. You can have your own app once you rename it.
Most iPhone users spend a good deal of time browsing Mail or Safari, but they might not know how easy it is to save images from them. Simply touch and hold on an image that you want to save. A box pops up with the save option.
Here is a simple tip for faster messaging on your iPhone. If the dictionary has provided you with a work you do not like, just tap anywhere on your phone’s screen to get rid of it. You don’t have to tap the “x” that shows up after words.
Looking for a way to add special characters like an umlaut or accented letter to your texts? Here’s what you have to do. Touch the letter you want to change, and hold it for a bit. You’ll get a pop-up window with several alternative characters after a moment or two. Now you can have more fun with your lettering.

Simply go to the settings menu area and click on notifications and then messages. The feature you want to disable is called Show Preview.
