Desktop Version of a Site: Did you know you can request the desktop version of a mobile site in Safari? It’s easier to do than you think. Just hold down the reload button(which is a half circle with an arrow) in the URL bar. For those not familiar with the URL this is where you would type in the web address.


Save a draft with one swipe: Are you using the stock Apple Mail app? If you aren’t quite ready to send an email, but don’t want to lose the draft. Tap on the subject line and swipe down to the bottom of the screento save a draft. This will drop your email draft to the bottom of your inbox.


Quick Reply: When you get a notification at the top of the screen that you have a new iMessage or SMS, pull the notification downward to reply without leaving the screen you’re on.


Hidden Level(s): Slide to the left in the Compass app open the level. Then place your phone flat with the screen facing away from the ground to reveal a bubble level.


Reachability: This is one of the new iPhones’ (6 and 6s) best features and there are still SO many people who don’t know about it. Double-touch (don’t push on the home button,DOUBLE TOUCH) on the home button and the entire screen will shift down so you can reach the top without shifting your grip.
