To set restrictions on your phone, simply go to General, and then Restrictions. Put in a four number password that you can remember.

When you have an incoming call on your iPhone, you can silence your ring with a single button. By pressing the Sleep/Wake button one time, the ring will go to silent mode. If you wish to send the caller straight to your voice mail, you can press that button two times.
iPhone Caps Lock
Do you have a message that you want to shout out to someone? Here’s how you can turn on Caps Lock on your iPhone. All you have to do is tap the shift key twice. When you’re ready to go back to lowercase letters, double tap the shift key again, and everything will return to normal.
One of the ways that you can personalize your iPhone is to change the wallpaper in the front and main screens on your iPhone. You can select from existing wallpapers that Apple creates or chooses from your camera roll, where you will be able to choose from the photos that you have saved.
Are there websites you visit a lot from your phone? Do you ever wish you had a little icon for them on the home screen? Well, if you have, open the web page in Safari and click on the Go To icon at the top of the screen. You can then select to add it to your home screen.
iPhone Built-in Dictionary
A new feature the iPhone has that many people do not know about is its built-in dictionary. This can even be used as you are writing an email or text message. If there is a word that you are unsure about, just tap on it and you will see “define” pop up–tap on it!
If you travel with kids a lot, an iPhone can be beneficial to you. You can easily install a few games on it to keep your kids occupied on long car trips, or even just while waiting in line at the grocery store. This can help keep them happy and out of your hair.
For those who interact often on social-networking sites, the iPhone makes it easy to stay up to speed with them. It is simple to comment, download photos and connect with your friends. Many college students find having an iPhone is a convenient way to stay connected to the internet away from home.
iPhone Camera Roll
You can do nearly everything that you can do on your home computer due to the Safari browser that iPhone uses. All you need to do is tap and hold a picture you’d like to preserve when you come across it online. The context menu that pops up will let you save the picture directly to your phone’s Camera Roll. You can also email the image.
If you called someone and do not remember their number or when you called them, click the “recent” button in the phone section. This button will not only give you a list of your recent calls and their times but also allow you to delete these call logs or check your missed calls.
If you use certain words and terms a lot that take up a lot of time to type, the best thing to do would be to add shortcuts. You can do this in the Settings section of your phone. For example, “SYL” can be used for “see you later.” Typing those three letters will prompt the phone to type out the entire phrase.
iPhone External Battery Pack
Consider purchasing an external battery pack for your iPhone. These can be very useful if your battery life runs low, and you are not near a charger. They can prolong the usable time that your phone offers you and makes it easier to tend to important things, like finances or emails, that many individuals use their iPhones for.
It’s possible to take iPhone photos using only one hand. Just frame your picture and tap the volume button marked “+”. You will find that your photos are of a quality comparable to those taken in a conventional manner.

iPhone Sending Message
If you’re sending messages to friends who don’t use iPhones themselves, remember that longer messages will get broken into 160-character texts. You can keep an eye on your messages’ length by adding a character counter to Message. Just open the Settings menu and go to “character count” under “messages.” With the counter enabled, you’ll never have to worry about a message getting broken at an unfortunate point again!
Unfreeze your phone by trying this trick. If you find that the screen has frozen, push Sleep/Wake. If that does not work, press it again at the same time as you push the Home button. You will receive an option to slide to power off. That will allow you to do a hard reset, so you can turn off your phone, and then power it up again.
Now that you know some neat tips for your new iPhone, you can use them to make your life easier. Then, you can explore your phone even more in order to find out how it can truly make your life more fun and help your life more efficiently. The only thing you have to worry about now is making sure you remember life off of the phone!
