9 Things You Didn't Know Your iPhone Could Do
iPhone is beauty created by Apple almost 10 years back. The device has changed a lot from the time it was introduced by Steve job. With the evaluation, some secret things also come in the play and many people don’t about these tips and tricks with their iPhone.

Today in this article we have collected the list of 9 things that probably you don’t use as an iPhone user. So let’s start

Get Siri to read your emails aloud for you

Just say the magic words "Read my email" and Siri will read all your messages aloud to you. If you like, you can tell her to read only your most recent email ("Read my latest email") or just those from a specific contact ("Do I have an email from Mark?").

Recharge your battery faster by switching to airplane mode

Switching to airplane mode turns off battery-draining wireless and cellular access, allowing your phone to recharge up to twice as fast.

Find out which planes are flying overhead

Just ask Siri: "What flights are above me?" Or you can be even blunter and just say, "Planes overhead." Boom! She"ll brings up a list that shows all the flights above you at that moment. Why you would ever need this I have no idea, but it's pretty rad anyway.

Scroll through videos and music at half, quarter, or eighth speed

This one is super useful. When you scroll—or as Apple calls it, "scrub"—through a movie or a song, the default mode is high-speed scrolling. This sometimes makes it hard to find the exact spot you want. But you can control the rate at which you scroll. To do this, hold down the dot—or "played"—in the scrollbar at the top of the video screen (tap the screen to display the scrollbar if it isn't visible) and slide your finger straight down without lifting it. This allows you to change the scrubbing speed to half-speed, quarter-speed, eighth-speed ("fine scrubbing"). Once you've selected the speed, move your finger left or right (without lifting it) to scroll.

Take a photo with the volume buttons

Sometimes it's hard to snap a picture by touching the capture button—if you're wearing gloves, say—in which case, you can take the shoot by pressing either the volume up or the volume down button. Problem solved!

Reveal time stamps on text messages

Drag the text bubble to the left and you'll see a timestamp for every text message. Among other things, this will show you just how much time you waste texting.

Make your iPhone speak selected text

I like to use this one randomly just to freak people out. First, you have to enable Speak Selection. To do that go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Speak Selection and turn it on. A "Speak" button will now appear whenever you select text. Bonus: you can also choose different accents (would you prefer an Aussie iPhone?) and even control the speed at which selected text is spoken. Trust me, you can waste a lot of time with this one.

Start a new sentence just by double-tapping the spacebar

Whenever you're typing and you need to start a new sentence, just double-tap the spacebar and it will automatically add a period and a space for you.

Create custom keyboard shortcuts

Say there's a certain word or phrase (or a password) that you use a lot. You can create a shortcut for it. Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Add New Shortcut. Enter a word or phrase and the shortcut you'd like to use it. Every time you type that shortcut, the whole word or phrase will magically appear. You can even create shortcuts for emoji!
