This post needs little introduction. Here are five useful tips for better utilizing your iPhone. Follow these and you'll work faster and use less data!
In Settings > General > Keyboard > Shortcuts, you can assign short macros that automatically extend out whatever you set up. My favorite time saver is to use “@@“ to type out my entire email address. Saves a lot of time when logging in to websites.
In Settings > Cellular, you can scroll down and see which apps are using the most data over cellular. This is great if you want to save money by downgrading your current plan.
Google Maps Offline
If you're planning a road trip or just want to use less data, you can save areas of Google Maps to view offline. All you have to do is search for an area like “Seattle, WA” and then swipe up from the bottom. This reveals the details page which has the Save button right there. Tap that and it will store that area locally for your viewing pleasure.
For iPhone 6 users, you can simply open the Health app and see your daily steps, miles walked, and flights of stairs climbed. This is great for both tracking your activity and motivating you to hit that ideal 10,000 daily step goal.
This underappreciated feature has become one of my favorites. When your iOS 8 device is plugged in to power, you can simply say, “Hey Siri, wake me up at 8am” and she'll set an alarm. You can ask anything, as long as you proceed it with “Hey Siri.” This is especially useful when laying in bed and feeling too lazy to roll over and reach for your phone. If this isn’t working for you, go to Settings > General > Siri and “Allow Hey Siri.”
