iPhone tips and tricks 2022

This Articles is brought to you by Brilliant. The most priceless thing that we all run out of on this planet is time. We are often too busy to realize that we can salt away this inestimable noncapital continuum by spending a pinch of it on optimizing and organizing our routines with the help of the devices that waste the most of it – our phones. Today,

iPhone tips and tricks 2022

 I will show you how to save at least an hour a day by providing you with perhaps the most essential 10 iPhone tips. You wouldn’t mind saving 15 days out of a year…right? Before we get to the nitty-gritty facepalm tips, let’s start with the most apparent first tip – learn your phone. Too many people are using their iPhones the way the device was introduced in 2007. Endless amount of app icons spread in an excess amount of home screens where the intimidation factor keeps many locked into pointless swiping and fruitless searching for something. In front of me, I have examples that belong to friends of mine to illustrate this fact – no offense to any of them –


  •  I love you. The latest iPhones operating system versions offer app recommendations, folders, automation, and widgets that can significantly reduce the time you spend locating or executing something. An example I can give you is my current home screen. Now, I won’t get into many details on the setup since I’ll be releasing a separate video on the topic of the most optimal iPhone setup, yet I want to point out that everything I require and use can be contained in just a single home screen. The point of this tip is to reduce the time spent on chronic interactions. Tip number 2 is to get to know Sire. As a friend of mine pointed out for this tip – a good relationship is built on trust. Although Sire has matured to offer a lot, learn the basics. Instead of opening Google Translate to search for a word in a foreign language, ask Siri to translate it for you. Goggling


conversions is a thing of the past since you can ask Siri to tell you how tall you are in centimeters or how many stones you weigh. Weather is something that I ask for every day, so is setting up a count-down timer or an alarm. Reminders are priceless when driving the car with Car Play. Grabbing a to-do via Siri could save you a lot more than just a few minutes writing the task down. If you quarrel with someone, save a few minutes searching for the fact in question and just ask for it. If you need to leave it to chance, stop hunting for a coin or simply roll a dice. Best of all, all these interactions can be done without even touching the phone. We are not only talking about saving time here but also reducing friction. The most recent realization and one of my current biggest time savers


 is using the nav and specifically Wade. Despite knowing every pothole in any of the possible routes I can take on my daily commute, Wade can save me 10 minutes to half an hour daily. Based on the live traffic information, I am told the fastest route with the least amount of traffic alongside a police report. Last time I had a chance to conduct a quick experiment and witnessed how an incident was reported on Waze within the first 2 minutes of its occurrence. The app is community-based, where everyone participates, and it’s a lot of fun too, since you can customize how it looks and interacts with you. Google maps is also great for many of the reasons as mentioned earlier,


 although you’ll get to appreciate your fellow driver’s input on Waze. The next tip is all about capturing commitments. Here’s what I mean. Ideas, thoughts, and realizations often occur at the least expected times. Coming up with a solution to a problem or a choice to a dilemma can be invaluable, yet capturing them on time has proven to be the biggest obstacle. The answer to those aha moments has to be as frictionless as possible, and the app that I use for those moments is called Just Press Record. It is a very simple yet powerful app that allows me to record whatever comes to my mind.


 I’ve set up a widget on my phone, but I often use the apple watch app to just press and record. What’s great is that it transcends the voice memos into text that I can, later on, use as the foundation for whatever I had in mind. I wish this app had Car Play support. Nevertheless, I created a Siri shortcut to where I’d say “record,” and it will immediately

start recording a voice memo. While on the topic of capturing commitments, the next tip I have is all about task lists. Note that I am not referring to just tasks but actual lists that are used regularly. Any task app can serve the purpose. In my case, I choose to use Things in a combination of Notes and Notion. Things is my daily chores tool where aside from the usual Today and upcoming tasks, I have created lists for packing,


tech, and gear, what do buy, groceries, home and garden, and more. Let me give you an example. I’ve been meaning to purchase a battery-powered garden sprayer for the longest time, yet every time I go to a home improvement retailer for something else, I forget about the garden sprayer. Nothing urgent here, yet something that I’ve been postponing for probably

2 years, the result of which has been manual time-consuming spraying in anger of my forgetfulness. Such lists don’t hold daily tasks but rather things that we realize we need to do at any given time – things that we can refer to when necessary. Quick access is tip number 6 here. Think of it this way – if you were to go somewhere, would you pick the longest route? If we talk about going to work, for example,


would you keep on picking the longest route every day? Of course not…yet WAY TOO MANY people choose to over-click their ways to get to a folder, note or a document…daily. Why not create quick access shortcuts to whatever you are most often using? As we’ve discussed in the past MINIMAL Mac Setup video, which I’ll link at the end of this one, creating shortcuts saves us a ton of time and keeps us sane. If I happen to access a folder more than 3 times daily,

 I immediately push it to my Favourites section of the Files app. Since I create tasks often, I’ve placed a Things widget on the home page of my phone with a tap away access to a new task. No need to open the app first, go to the Today section and

pressing on the plus button. This methodology should be the cornerstone of everyone who cares about productivity improvement. If you search, go or click on something often, create quick access to it. To take a breath for a moment let’s immediately shave off at least 15 minutes a day,


by turning off all social media notifications. You probably know this, but all social media platforms want you to return to them as often as possible. Notifications are like having a candy that drops in front of your face all the time. As much as you want to resist the sugar, everyone eventually caves. When you turn off all your social media notifications, you become an intentional user – you become the boss and not the other way around. To prove my point,

try turning off all your social media notifications for a day and compare the screen time results on your Smartphone afterward. You probably noted that saving an hour a day is a little over 15 days a year. That’s 4 percent of your annual time that you could spend on something worthwhile. We are talking about changing your perspective here.


 Part of my time savings I invest in improving my problem-solving skills. For example, I am currently taking Brilliant’s course on Everyday math. As I mentioned changing the perspectives, take a look at this figure: At a glance, it may not be apparent if there’s more of one color than the other…unless (similar to our annual time-saving dissection) we divide

the entire shape into some smaller squares to reveal the answer that the totals of yellow and white areas must be equal – changing perspectives to get a better understanding. To change your own perspective and invest some of your saved time, check out Brilliant since it is an amazing tool for learning STEM interactively.

If you get an email with a question or debacle, instead of resorting to the usual detailed step-by-step instruction writing spree, use the screen recording functionality of the iPhone to explain everything.


When you long press on the screen recording feature of the iPhone, a microphone icon appears, and this is pretty much all you need. Instead of writing 10-minute long emails, do a quick 2-minute free speech explanation which I’m sure will be more beneficial to the other party as well. Let’s be honest, no one likes reading long emails. Also, your thumbs will thank you.

Instead of a screen recording, feel free to use a voice memo too. When we talk about messages, long replies can also be avoided by recording your message as a voice message which the recipient can choose to save later. To prove my point, here’s how long it takes to write a paragraph on the iPhone,


compared to just sending a voice note. I am trying to up my returning viewers as only 17% of you manage to find me again and again. If you end up enjoying this video and want to find out what’s next on the channel, subscribe and click on the bell icon because WHY NOT? Next up payments. Take advantage of the Apple Wallet app and insert your most used cards. Even the slightest time-saving habit of using the phone instead of taking out your wallet and trying to pull out the correct card will be worth it. If you wear an Apple Watch,


 things get even better in the time-saving department since you can just flex for a second on the terminal and move on with your life. Keeping your cards in your Apple Wallet will save you even more time when making online payments since Apple Pay is worldwide, and you won’t have to enter the credit card information manually. Give me a moment for this next tip:

Instead of reading everything, use the built-in Speak feature of the iPhone. If you have a long email or an article that you’d like to catch up with, select the text and press the Speak feature. The phone will read you everything you need to know while you wash the dishes. Turn your daily routines into an audio book Samsung galaxy s22 VS Google pixel 6 Lag Tech Mod
