We are all aware of what an iPhone can do. We are able to use this helpful device to connect to the Web and see the latest movies and television shows. We can use it to update our Facebook pages and send out tweets. We can listen to music, make phone calls, to get directions to the nearest Italian restaurant all with the iPhone. However, you might be surprised at what else your iPhone lets you do. Fortunately, there are plenty of smartphone experts out there willing to share their top iPhone tricks with you.

Saving Time

If you find it difficult to type a Web address on the small on-screen keyboard, before clicking in the address bar on your browser, turn your iPhone to a horizontal position. The keyboard will now be larger, making it easier to type an “e” and not a “w”. Here is a timesaving tip for making phone calls. When browsing the Web, if you find phone number you need to call, simply tap the phone number on the screen and your phone will call it.

More Efficient Typing

This tip will help you type faster: When you tap the space bar twice at the end of a sentence, your phone will add a period and automatically capitalize the next word you type. If you’re a person who uses a great deal of special characters, it’s easy to access the menu by touching and holding a letter on your screen until the special character options pop up. Then simply select the character you would like and insert it.

Quick Printing, Personalized Entertainment

This tip is for those of you that own an AirPrint-enabled printer. You can easily print documents, emails, and Web pages from your iPhone with this gadget. To print a Web page merely tap the “Action” icon and select “Print,” this will send the information to your printer. Printing an email is just as easy; tap “Reply” and select “Print.”

For you music lovers out there, you can create a music playlist on the go. Access the iPod app, tap the “Playlists” icon chose the “Add Playlist” icon. Relabel your playlist and add any video or song on your phone by merely touching it.
