Did you know that your iPhone can take a screenshot, anytime you like? Once you have selected the screen you would like a screenshot of, push down on your "home" button and make sure to click the "sleep" button the same time. You have successfully saved the screenshot to your iPhone once you see your screen turn white.

One great suggestion for your iPhone is making use of Facebook. There are people are not aware of the full connectivity powers of social networking and their iPhones.

If adding the ".com" ending of website addresses on your iPhone is a chore, you don't have to. The phone will recognize the website when you type in its main name. This tip may seem silly, but it really saves time over the long run, especially if you navigate to sites a lot over the course of your iPhone's life.

If you haven't already guessed, the iPhone is very versatile. You can use the BlinqTV app (which is free) to make a remote of your wireless phone charger. This will allow your iPhone to control some TVs, receivers and DVD players. You can then program reminders for yourself so you are aware that your favorite TV shows are playing.

If you want to save an email or a text without sending it, tap on cancel. You will receive a popup asking how you wish to proceed; one option being Save. When you select the save option, your message will be placed into the Drafts folder which will allow you to continue writing your message later. If you don't have a Drafts folder, it will create one following this selection.

It can be tricky to scroll through sites on the small window on the browser of your iPhone. Sometimes, you wind up just scrolling across the main webpage. If you're getting stuck, select the window you want to scroll through, and zoom in. Then, use two instead of one finger to scroll through the list.

A great way to save a lot of time when playing with your iPhone is to set custom shortcuts for AutoText. This function is great when dealing with long email addresses or for common phrases. This shortcut feature can be accessed under the keyboard settings of your iPhone.

Keep the screen as dark as you can when not using the phone. The brightness of your screen directly relates to how long your phone stays powered. Keeping your screen dark will help preserve your phone's charge.

If you value your privacy greatly, then you should probably use Siri a little less. Apple keeps recordings of almost all communication with Siri on its own server. Keep in mind that as you speak to Siri, your words may get recorded as Apple records these things to assist in speech recognition programs.

Cut down on typing time. You can set up new shortcuts under the settings. If you do this, it will program any long words or phrases you use often. You won't have to type all of these words out.

Now do you know why no other phone is like the iPhone? There's no other smartphone out there that has as much power or can do as much as the iPhone. It has clear advantages that make it the number one smartphone available.
