- Location Based Reminders
Apple iPhone users must have used the voice-generated personal assistant Siri to set a time reminder or even place alarm or a memo, such as 'Hey Siri, remind me of Josh's birthday exactly at 12 am today'. But were you aware that besides this time zone attribute, Siri can also help you on location-based reminders? Try this 'Siri, remind me to submit my project to Professor X as soon as I reach college'. The next thing that happens is you will get notified exactly when you step on the college premises! If you had not discovered this till now then go ahead and try it now. All you need to do is create your contact list with the correct name, address, and relationship. Sounds amazing right?
2. Fast Charging Through Airplane Mode
So if your iPhone is blinking on low battery and you are in a rush for a meeting or a long pending plan, then relax as we got you a trick here. Just put your handset on airplane mode and see how fast it charges. Now that's a relief. Pheww!
3. Access Ebooks With Audio
Apple iPhone comes with a lot of distinctive features in terms of accessibility. One of those is the Speak Screen, which is actually inscribed for the visually impaired users. But, this feature can act as an advantage for any iPhone users which can turn your ebooks into audio books by reading out loud the texts. All you need to do is go to the 'Settings', click the 'General' option followed by 'Accessibility' and active the Speech Screen option. You can even modulate the voice (gender), language and speed of the speech as per your convenience. So, if you don't want to strain your eyes but equally curious to know the next chapter of the series you are reading, then your iPhone can be your storyteller. Relax, sit back and enjoy!
- Get A Track Of Everywhere You Have Been
If you want to keep a track on the places you have visited on a day as a reminder then your iPhone can make things easy for you. It can actually track your every place of visit. All you need to do is go to Settings<Privacy<Location Services<System Services<Frequent locations. Your problem is sorted.
5. Go Hands-Free And Reply Texts With Siri
Why stress about operating the device by holding in hands when you got your buddy to do the work? By buddy, we are referring to Siri here. Usually, when you have to launch Siri, you need long press the home button. But to activate hands-free mode, just enable Hey Siri and you can access the AI every time by calling out 'Hey Siri'. You can even respond to the received texts using Siri or can ask your personal assistant to set a reminder to read and reply later. Now that solves a lot of problem, isn't it?
- Save Time Via 3D Touch
This feature is found in the 2015 and 2016 iPhone models. It helps to create shortcuts to your favorite apps and save a lot a time. That's not all. This feature works from the locked screen as well once activated. You can just long press the notification bar on the locked screen and directly access the reply option. You can use the feature for other apps too. Explore more today!

- Modify Texts Through Hidden Trackpad
This is a key feature needed at the time of typing something. While you are composing a text or email and you suddenly realize that you need to rectify something in between the text. All you need to do is long press the keyboard and an additional cursor will pop up on your iPhone screen. This will act like a trackpad. Now you can drag the cursor as per your requirement and set things right.

This will excite you the most if you are a music lover and like to spend long hours listening to the latest tracks. Your iPhone can instantly launch the music app or your playlist as soon as you plug in your earphones. That's just perfect!
- Let Siri Find Photos Quickly
You just simply need to ask Siri to find the pictures based on the time or location. You can direct Siri by asking 'Hey Siri show me the photos from 2016 taken in Dubai' and boom! your photos are right there. This feature is applicable for users with iOS 9 handsets. Siri, you are such a darling!
