Apple is one of the most popular smartphone retailers around, with millions of users worldwide. With such success, and with many limiting the power of smartphones, some hidden gems have gone undiscovered. In this blog post, you will learn six must-try iPhone hacks that will make your life easier (or just cooler)!
1. CORRECTING SIRI
As we know, the English language in particular can be a bit tricky, so Siri can end up saying the name the way it is spelled, but not the way it is actually pronounced.
Because of this, Siri might not understand you when you're asking about something or someone of that name. When you hear Siri mispronounce something, simply say "That's not how you say that." Siri will then ask you to say the name and give you pronunciation choices based off of what you said. Click the one that is closest to what you said, and Siri will save your preferences for future use!
2. CLEAR LOCATION HISTORY
If you're someone who has your location settings on at all times, you can easily clear your location history by visiting: settings > privacy > location services > system services > significant locations. You will find a list and a message that says that your iPhone compiles and stores this list to help you gather useful location-related information in your maps, calendar, photos and more. Simply scroll to the bottom of the list and click "clear history." As long as you keep your location settings on, your iPhone will continue to do this, but your location settings are quite important when using a number of apps!
3. CLOSE MULTIPLE APPS ALL AT ONCE
is a great tool for people who are trying to free up processing space quickly and, if you're an app hoarder like I am, you can skip the minutes-long process of closing the apps individually.
4. SET YOUR MUSIC ON A TIMER
time has run out. This can also be a great tool for time-outs for parents, for music lovers who listen to tunes while the laundry is running, and so forth!
5. TURN OFF DATA USAGE FOR SOME APPS
