You may want to opt for a larger keyboard to make surfing the Internet easier. Fortunately, there is no need to purchase a keyboard. From the Safari browser, rotate your phone sideways and tap on the address bar. You will now have a keyboard that is bigger and much easier-to-use.
In order to conserve your battery usage on the iphone, reduce the brightness level. Go to the settings area on your phone and reduce the brightness level. Lowering your phone’s brightness will help conserve battery life.
Another benefit of the iphone is the ability to navigate. You can use the map and GPS to receive directions to a particular location, and you can locate places like stores or fueling stations along your route, too. You can easily bookmark the map so that it is quickly accessible at all times.
Make an application from any site you visit regularly. Load the website on your iphone. Once you are there, simply tap on the “Go” button. One of the options you’ll be presented with is adding the website to your iPhone’s home screen. When you see it on the home page, you are able to rename it. Then, you have an app!
Use this tip to make messaging speedier. If you do not want to use the word the dictionary suggests when you are texting with your iphone, you can simply tap anywhere on the screen to dismiss it. Although the suggestion box has an “x” button for closing the window, you don’t have to use it.
If you are going to email someone or send them a note, there are suggested words that make this process easy. If you do not want to use this feature, it is simple to close it. Just tap the screen at any area and the words will be eliminated.
It may not be a good idea to use Siri. Almost all voice prompts directed at Siri are recorded by Apple, and stored by them on internal servers. This helps them develop speech recognition programs, although it is important to understand that you may be recorded.
With Safari, you can do pretty much all of the things you like to do on your browser on your computer; this includes getting images from the Internet. Want to save a picture on the Internet? No problem – just tap on the picture and hold your finger down. The context menu pops up and lets you store the photo directly to the image app, if you have one. It’s also easy to copy the image and put it in an email or message this way.
