4. Keyboard Shortcuts
This really cuts down on your texting time, especially for phrases that you use often. To create a short cut, go to Settings > General > Keyboard. Scroll down a bit to add a new shortcut or edit an already existing one. Now, when you’re typing, your shortcut will automatically turn into the full phrase.
5. Use The Microphone To Write Emails
Instead of tapping on your iphone keyboard to type an email, tap the microphone icon and just start talking! When finished, tap done, and your words will appear as text. It’s faster and more efficient. Say “period” to end your sentences, “comma” when needed, etc… This also works for text, notes, facebook, twitter, and more.
6. Use your Volume + To Take Photos
This works especially well when trying to capture a landscape positioned photo. While in your camera app, simply tilt your phone and click the volume + button. It helps keep a steady hand! This works with the volume button on your headphones, too.
