- Object-based search in the photos
So, you really want to find the picture of that cute cat you took last year, but it’s almost impossible as there are 3,000 photos on your phone. What you maybe did not notice is that the Photos app has a search icon at the top, and if you type “cat”, you will get to see all those cats photos and make it much easier.
- Find your car
When you park your car in a giant parking lot, it’s not always easy to find them, but provided it has Bluetooth paired with your phone, the Maps app can show you the location. You can also add a photo, and this is probably one of the coolest iPhone features.
- Turn e-books into audio books
This is both practical and amazing feature, as it was designed primarily for those seeing impaired, but can be used to the benefit of all people who enjoy audio books. This is just one of the Accessibility options your iPhone has, as the feature called Speak Screen can read aloud any text on the screen at your command.
- Create custom messages when you cannot answer the call
A very practical feature for busy people who are often at meetings, or for people who are on a date, but don’t want to be rude just by ignoring calls. Your custom message may simply be “busy right now, call you back later”, or anything you want. Go to Settings > Phone > Respond With Text and create your own message.
