The iPhone seems to have an unlimited number of available apps. In addition, this phone can provide you with many ways of easing your life, as long as you know some knowledge. If you’re overwhelmed or intimidated by the iPhone’s power, read on to learn how to use it effectively.
If you get your iPhone wet, try to use rice when drying it out. No matter how much care you take, your phone may slip into water, or even get rained on. Use a paper towel to wipe the phone, then place it in a rice packed bag. Use this as an alternative to a hair dryer. By leaving it in here for a few hours or, more preferably, overnight, you should have a dry, working iPhone.
Siri has the ability to set reminders based on location. You can tell Siri to remind you to do something at a specific time. You can now say “Siri, tell me to call my job when I arrive home.” The phone will know when you are at home, and it will give you a reminder to call the office. This is convenient for times that you want a reminder, but don’t know exactly what time you’ll need the reminder.
Keep in mind you don’t have to always need to press X each time AutoCorrect pops up to suggest a correction. Just push any place on your screen. This will close the suggestion box for you, which is a much faster method.
You can easily message much faster using this simple trick. If your iPhone doesn’t correctly guess the word you are attempting to text, you can touch the screen anywhere to cancel the guess. The little “X” does not have to be hit!
Have you ever had second thoughts about your latest message you just wrote in iMessage? Is AutoCorrect confusing the meaning of what you write? There is a very easy way to fix the damage: simply shake your iPhone quickly. Giving your device a quick shake can help you start fresh with your message. This optional feature needs to be enabled, so look at your Settings to ensure it is available.
Experiment with scrolling while looking at webpages. You might find it easier to scroll with one finger or two, depending on what you are looking at. If there are scrollable windows on the page, use one finger to scroll through them individually. But, if you use two fingers, you can navigate the full page.
Most iPhone users take a lot of photographs. It can be difficult to scroll through all of the photos you have taken if they are not sorted. If you want to organize your photos so you can find them easily, use your iPhone’s album function that is built-in. It will be easy to locate that needed shot when you do this.
If you know anyone with an iPhone, you have seen some get their minds blown by the technology in their hands, for better and for worse. Apply all that you have learned from this article to get the most from your iPhone.
