Yes, you’re going to get a iPhone 6s pretty much immediately. Me too. But let’s at least go into it knowing a few more tricks that your current iPhone already has up its sleeve…
1. Put your phone in Airplane mode while charging to significantly cut down on charging time.
Swipe up from the bottom of your phone and tap the airplane icon to go into airplane mode. This is great if you need quickly charge. It makes the charging time “fly” by — see what we did there?
2. Give your phone a quick jiggle to fix a mistake.
While writing an email, text, or editing a photo, shake your phone if you make a mistake and get this little guy prompting you to undo what you just did. Note: Shaking harder will not un-send a text you didn’t mean to send.
3. Turn your phone sideways for a more detailed calendar
Seriously the easiest tip ever. Just turn your phone sideways and get a better view of your calendar. But since you don’t use your calendar consistently, it’s just a better view of dates for you to squint at and say “I know something is happening on the 15th…..what was it again???”
4. View email drafts with one tap
Just tap and hold the Compose button in your email application to quickly access your drafts. We have rewritten many an email because we didn’t want to take the laborious steps of finding the draft. So this one is a personal favorite.
5. Set a timer for music or audiobooks to automatically turn off
This one is great. Get your audio playing (music, audiobooks, whatever) then set a timer in the Clock app. Under the “When Timer Ends” section, instead of choosing a sound, choose Stop Playing. That’s it! Now you can take a nap while listening to your most guilty pleasure playlist (Christopher Cross, Spice Girls, Justin Bieber, and the like) and make sure it turns off before anyone comes home to hear it! Thanks iPhone!
