Make Touch ID Work Perfectly

The iPhone’s fingerprint scanner is like a little girl with the curl: When it’s good it’s very, very good, and when it’s bad it’s horrid. The best way to make it work better is to give it the finger — just one of them.

Instead of setting up Touch ID with multiple fingers, iOS encourages scan and rescan your thumb (the only digit most people typically use on the home button) multiple times. The result: You’ll unlock your phone on the first time, every time.

Don’t Dial, Talk

When Steve Jobs launched the iPhone in 2007, he joked that the device would look like an iPod with a rotary dialer instead of the iconic click wheel. The crowd roared with laughter, but many of us are stuck in the past, entering phone numbers by pecking at buttons on the touchscreen.

Today, the easiest way to dial is to have Siri do it for you. Just hold down the home button and when the digital assistant appears, say, “dial 555-6792.” Saving your time from looking back and forth from the phone number to the screen, this isn’t a trick so much as it’s the future of phones, much like the iPhone itself.

Never Forget the Plumber’s Number

Have a doctor, electrician, hairdresser, or plumber? Of course you do. Now think fast, what’s their first or last name? Siri can actually remember your contacts’ relationships to you, if you tell your phone who is who.

Summon Siri and say, “Jane Smith is my wife,” or “Steve Williams is my plumber.” (Substituting your wife or plumber’s name, of course.) After Siri makes the association, you can text or call them saying “text my wife,” or “call the plumber,” no names necessary.

Bookmark Your Life

iOS 9 brought about a slew of new “proactive” features, but one that hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves is Siri’s ability to “Remind me about this.” If you suddenly remember there’s someone you should call or something you should buy, you can ask Siri to remind you about it later, either at a specific time or even in a certain place.

So, if you’re halfway into a deep read but want to pick it back up in the evening, say, “Siri, remind me about this at 8:30 p.m.” Later that night, not only will you get nudged, but the alert will lead you directly to the webpage. Likewise, if you ask Siri to remind you to call your uncle when you get home, his contact information will spring to the screen when your phone realizes you’ve arrived at your address.

Stretch Your iPhone’s Power

Consider it the smartphone equivalent of hypermiling, the (somewhat dangerous) practice of getting the most out of every drop of gasoline in a car. By engaging iOS’s new low power mode early and often, you can make your battery run for much longer than it currently does.

Low power mode automatically shuts down all those energy-hogging applications and processes, like email pushing, background app refresh, and snazzy visual effects. And when your phone dips below 20% battery life, iOS prompts users to turn it on anyway, so they may get a boost of up to three more hours of life.
