Everybody wants an iPhone, but many folks don’t know how to use it. This article is filled with great information about iPhones. Keep reading and learn some tricks for making the most of the iPhone.
Wouldn’t a larger keyboard make it easier to enter messages and surf the Internet on your iPhone? This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to purchase one. Simply turn your iPhone horizontal and touch the address bar. This gives you instant access to a larger keyboard.
You can set reminders based on location with your iPhone. Rather than saying “Siri, let me know to call my job at 5pm.” 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. So, when the phone realizes your location has changed, the relevant reminder can be issued. This helps when you have no idea what time you will be arriving at home, and lets you set a reminder.
You can find any place with your iPhone. Use the map as GPS when you want definite directions, or when trying to find gas stations or grocery stores en route. Bookmark the map facility so that you can use it whenever needed.
Are you completely overwhelmed by constant notifications received on your iPhone? You may turn them off easily. Go into the settings and choose notifications. Check out the apps in the “Notification Center” and delete any unwanted apps. This can also help your battery life.
The iPhone allows you to create your own shortcuts and your own dictionary. You can use the diction feature and have your phone transcribe what you say out loud. It is also possible to add your own terms, shortcuts and specialized phrases. Auto-correction of mistyped words is another handy feature.
If you download an application that will let you upload your files to the iPhone, you can utilize it as a device for storage. It is easy to upload music, pictures, videos and text files. Just use the iPhone directly or connect to a computer to see the files.
Are you aware that you can snap a photo from the headphone cord? The first thing you’ll want to do is line up the shot you want. When you are ready to snap the picture, simply push the button. This will take the photo. You can save your picture by following the usual steps.
You can see a list of messages on your lock screen. You may find this handy or annoying.

Go into the Settings area, and then choose the Notifications section, followed by the Messages area. Here you have the option to turn the Show Preview setting to OFF.
