Did you know your iPhone can turn almost anything into a PDF? Magnify fine print? Immediately find the closest gas station while driving?

Even if you tinker with your iPhone all day long, there's almost always a life-changing feature that you never noticed before. As iPhones become more powerful than ever, and the public gets ever more proficient with iOS 10, there are astonishing new tricks to discover.

Fast-track your emojis

You're typing out a text message, and you say something like: "I'm at the sushi restaurant." Before you've finished typing "sushi," your phone will guess what you mean, and one of those guesses will be a tiny picture of some delicious-looking sashimi. It's a cute alternative to actual words, like when you decide to "heart" something. With such an enormous bank of emojis, you may find yourself typing messages that look like hieroglyphics.

Register as an organ donor

Many iPhone users are turning to their "Health" app to make healthier choices about their lifestyles. Check out the Medical ID tab and you'll find a place to register as an organ donor, thanks to Donate Life America.

Search for photos

Every photo you snap on your iPhone is saturated with meta-data – special information about the picture, including how large it is, when it was taken, where it was taken, and so on. If you're a trigger-happy photographer, you may find yourself with thousands of photos in only a few weeks. How do you find a specific snapshot from days ago? Now you can run a regular search, and some search terms may astonish you, like what is actually in the picture.

Looking for a picture of your friend's car? Just type "car" into the search field and see what pops up. You'll be amazed how accurate it is.
