Learn To Use Your Iphone With These Tips

There are new applications being released every day for your iphone. There are probably dozens that could help simplify your life, if you knew how to use them. The basics in the article below will tell you what you need to know to start making every day headache-free.

There is no need to select the “x” box that follows a word that has been subjected to AutoCorrect. Just tap the screen anywhere instead. This is a faster way to get rid of the AutoCorrect suggestion box.

If you have a frozen iphone screen, try pressing down the home button for at least 5 seconds. Doing this will shut down any frozen apps and let you use your phone again. If that does not work, hold the “home” and power button at the same time for 12 seconds. Only try the second method when the first one isn’t working.

In order to choose to make an email stay marked as unread, you have to locate the command because it’s not visible. Find ‘Details’ on your iphone menu and click on the unread tag for email. When you return to your email it will be marked as unread.

If you use more than one email account, make sure you choose different names for each of them. It is hard to navigate through email accounts that are named the same. Name each account something unique; this will make checking your e-mail much easier.

Hard reset your iphone if it gets frozen. Simply depress the button as you hold the Home button. The iphone will initiate a shutdown and restart, solving the problem.

If you are unhappy with Siri’s mechanized voice, know that there are other choices. The first step is to find Siri in the “general settings” area. You can then set Siri’s language to English, French or German. You can also choose your preferred accent; for instance, make Siri British. British Siri is actually a man!

The iphone OS should be upgraded to the most recent version. Nowadays, iPhones are as complicated as computers, meaning that bugs need to be fixed and certain functions need updating. If your phone contains personal information or you access the Internet with it, then regular updating is necessary.

When you type a sentence on an iphone, just double tap your space bar near the conclusion of your sentence. This automatically puts in a period and will include a space after it. This will prevent you from changing to the “123″ key menu and save you some time.

Do you always text the same people? Add their numbers to your favorites. You can use your recent and favorite call lists as a place to not only return a call, but to also send text messages. Hit the arrow next to the contact name and choose to send a text message. This is great for quickly finding out about all the recent calls and texts that you just missed.

If your friends own iPhones, you have probably seen their amazement when they discovered the device’s capabilities. Apply all that you have learned from this article to get the most from your iphone.
