Things You Might Not Know Your iPhone Could Do

We are all aware of what an iPhone is capable of doing. We can use this handy device to connect to the Web and watch the latest movies and television shows. We can use it to update our Facebook pages and send out tweets. We can play music, make phone calls, and find directions to the closest Italian restaurant all with the iPhone. However, you may be amazed at what else your iPhone lets you do. Fortunately, there are plenty of smartphone experts out there willing to share their top iPhone tricks with you.

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 telephone number you need to call, simply tap the phone number on the screen and your phone will call it.

More Efficient Typing

This tip from Apple results in speedier typing.  When using the on-screen keyboard tap the space bar twice at the end of a sentence. This will automatically add a period and capitalize the next word you’re going to type. If you use a lot of special characters, you can access them by touching and holding a letter. You can then chose the character you need and insert it into the message.

Quick Printing, Personalized Entertainment

If you own an AirPrint-enabled printer, you can print documents, emails, and even Web pages from your iPhone. To print an email message, tap the Reply icon and then select “Print” and your phone will send the message to your printer. For a Web page, touch the “Action” icon and select “Print.”

Your iPhone can play your music, but did you know you can create a personalized music playlist on the go? Open the iPod application, tap the “Playlists” icon and chose the “Add Playlist” option. After renaming your playlist, just navigate to any song you wish to add and select it.
