6 iPhone hidden tips which will change the way you use your iPhone 
Have you thought your life without your iPhone? “No” will be the answer from almost all of us. Now we are in the world where our iPhone or for that shake any smartphone has become the basic need of our day to day life.

To get the maximum out of your device sometimes you have to take the other way. Today we are sharing 6 iPhone tips which will change the way you use your iPhone.

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.

Make Deleting Photos Fun

There’s a reason why Tinder is so fun (other than that reason) — the user interface of swiping left and right turns dating into something of a game. Taking that idea to photo management, Clean bills itself as the fastest way to clean up a photo library. The free iOS app can make short work of a stack of recklessly snapped images. Just use some spare time to swipe through memory lane, and your phone storage space will get cleared up in no time.

Fall Asleep to Music

Most people associate the iPhone’s timer function with some sort of alarm coming on at the end. But buried within the Clock app, there’s an option for the iPhone to stop playing media when the time is up. Essentially a ‘sleep’ function, this can help you fall asleep to music or movies. (It even works with media on the YouTube app.)

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.

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 in 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.

Quickly Type Tedious Terms

Everyone has their own collection of familiar keystrokes, like your mailing or e-mail address. Text Replacement, a setting found in your Settings-> General-> Keyboard menu, lets users program their own shortcuts into iOS, saving themselves from unnecessary taps.

For instance, program “OMW” to display as “on my way,” “addy” to spew forth your mailing address, and more. Unfortunately obscured passwords (the ones that appear as dots) don’t accept Text Replacement, but usernames are fair game.
