I often use my iPhone to look things up on the web while I’m out and about. If I want to pick up where I left off later using my iPad, I don’t have to remember how to get back to that page. There is a very simple way to jump right to it.
Many of you probably use your iPhone to keep track of shopping lists. It makes it easy to jot things down that you want to remember to buy, and you always have your phone with you. Wouldn’t it be nice if several people could add items to the same list so you know that you’re getting everything needed at the store? Luckily, that’s pretty easy to do with the iPhone.
We recently moved into a new home and once all the furniture was placed and the boxes unpacked, we started to hang pictures. The problem was that the garage was still a mess and we couldn’t find our level. The solution? The iPhone, of course!

Entering text is probably the most common thing we do on our devices, whether it’s sending a message, writing an email, or jotting down a note. How often do you mistype something and need to correct it? There is a relatively new, and much easier way to go back and change text you’ve already typed.
We all have become familiar with using a search engine, such as Google, to find things on the internet. Our devices have a similar feature that makes it very easy to find things both on our devices and online. It’s surprisingly powerful and useful.
