So you feel like you know all you need to know about your iPhone. You can adeptly make calls, send text messages, check emails, change settings, download apps and everything in between.
Sure, having the right know-how to get things done on your smartphone makes you feel like a bonafide expert. But of course, there might still be hidden iPhone tricks here and there that can make your everyday use even better. (While you're at it, here are 7 expert iPhone tips you'll use time and time again.)
To elevate your iPhone mastery, here are a few essential tricks Apple recommends that you should be using daily:
1. Ask Siri to do math
For basic math problems, you can simply ask Siri instead of opening a calculator app. Apple's virtual assistant can do percentages, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Activate Siri by holding down the home button or, if you enabled it, say "Hey Siri" out aloud while your iPhone is plugged into its charger.
Try asking math questions like "How much is 45 percent of 134?" or "What is 3,456 plus 2,357?" and she'll answer you right back.
2. Take a screenshot
To take a screenshot of what's displayed on your iPhone's screen, press the Home and power (sleep/wake) buttons at the same time.
This image is immediately saved to the Screenshots album in your iPhone's Photos app and can be edited and shared in the same way as the rest of your saved photos.
