Get More Out of Your New iPhone With These Quick Tips

It seems like iPhones can do everything but take out the trash. Aside from the obvious phone calls, we can monitor the latest movies and TV shows, and update our social sites. They store our music and give us directions to navigate to the nearest shopping mall. You may think you already know all your iPhone is able to do but here are a few lesser-known tricks you will be happy to learn.

Saving Time

If you find it difficult to type a Web address on the small on-screen keyboard, before clicking in the address bar on your browser, turn your iPhone to a horizontal position. The keyboard will now be larger, making it easier to type an “e” and not a “w”. This is a timesaving tip for making phone calls. When browsing the Web, if you find phone number you need to call, simply tap the number on the screen and your phone will dial it.

More Efficient Typing

This tip will help you type faster: When you tap the space bar twice at the end of a sentence, your phone will add a period and automatically capitalize the next word you type. If you are a person who uses a great deal of special characters, it’s simple to access the menu by touching and holding a letter on your screen until the special character options appear. Then simply select the character you would like and insert it.

Quick Printing, Personalized Entertainment

This tip is for those of you that own an AirPrint-enabled printer. It is simple to print documents, emails, and Web pages from your iPhone with this machine. To print a Web page merely touch the “Action” icon and choose “Print,” this will send the data to your printer. Printing an email is just as easy; tap “Reply” and select “Print.”

For you music lovers out there, you can create a music playlist on the run. Access the iPod app, tap the “Playlists” icon chose the “Add Playlist” icon. Rename your playlist and add any video or song on your phone by merely touching it.
