When was the last time you actually read the manual for a new device? You might be surprised at how much new info is in there.
The Unclutterer discovers that the iPhone manual lists an incredible amount of stuff:
I recently saw a comment online that read something like, “All I use the iPhone’s Home button is for is taking screenshots. What else is it for?” Here at Unclutterer, we believe that knowing what your gear is capable of doing improves your productivity and helps to keep you organised. In short, we think you should always read the manual so you get the most of your technology and don’t waste your time and money.
By reading the manual we discovered this one button can do eight separate things.
Now, most of those things you probably already know. But some you won’t. For example, when we recently shared our top 10 iOS gestures, many people — including us — were shocked to find that you can press the Shift key and drag your finger to another key for faster capital letters. I’ve owned an iPad for years and didn’t know this. Turns out, it was in the iPad manual all along.
Obviously, there are always lesser-known tips waiting to be discovered. But a lot of times, the tips that “blow our mind” are right in front of our faces. That manual may be 100 pages, but it might be worth perusing after all.
