Send Your Location
Want to meet up with old friends, but are not familiar with the area? Finding your way an unknown area can get tricky when you are trying to describe your exact location. Luckily, you can send your location with your iPhone device. To do so, make sure your data connection and location are on. Next, open the iMessages app and select the person you wish to send your location to, and tap on details. Select “Send my current location”.
Faster iPhone Charging
Need to charge your iPhone device quickly? plug your phone into the charger and place your device on Airplane mode. Your iPhone will no longer be sharing and pulling data from the web, making it charge much faster.
Ever write a long text and decide to send something shorter or want to delete the whole thing? With your iPhone, you can easily delete the text by just shaking your phone, which will prompt you to “Undo Typing”. If you change your mind, you can just shake the phone again and it will prompt you to “Redo Typing”.
Quick Text Reply
Did you know you can answer a text with just a swipe? If a text comes through and you want to send a quick response, you can just swipe up and it will bring you to your keyboard, without having to launch the messages app.
Set a time to stop playing music

Receive a call from someone at a moment that you can’t chat? You can set a reminder to return a call with a swipe up and then select a time to remind you to return their call. You can also select “When I leave” which reminds you when you leave your current location.
