It’s no secret that smartphones play a vital role in our lives. We use them to stay connected with friends and family, get work done, and have fun. But for many of us, there are still plenty of ways we can get more out of our smartphones. In this article, we’ll share 10 fun tips and tricks that will help you do everything from taking better photos to improving your productivity. With these tips, you’ll be able to make the most of your smartphone and really make it work for you.
Uninstall Apps You Don’t Need
One way to free up storage space on your iPhone is to uninstall apps that you don’t need. Many of us have apps that we downloaded and never use, so get rid of them and free up some valuable storage space.
Go to the Settings menu and select General > iPhone Storage to uninstall an app. Underneath Apps, you will see a list of all the apps installed on your phone. Select any app that you want to uninstall and then tap Delete App. Confirm by tapping Delete App again, and the app will be removed from your phone.
Scan a Document with Notes
If you need to scan a document on your used iPhone 13 Pro, you can do so using the Notes app on your smartphone. Simply open the Notes app and create a new note. Tap the + icon in the bottom-left corner of the screen and select Scan Documents. The camera will open, and you can scan the document. Once the scan is complete, you can save the note and exit the app.
Use Siri to find your iPhone
If you lose your iPhone, you can use Siri to help you find it. Open the Siri app and say, “Find my iPhone.” Siri will show you a map of where your iPhone is located. If your iPhone is turned off or not connected to the internet, Siri will show you the last known location of your iPhone. It can be a practical way of locating your used iPhone X or a brand-new iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Set Up the ‘Your Phone App’ in Windows
If you use a Windows computer, you can set up the Your Phone app to connect to your smartphone. This app allows you to view and edit your phone’s photos and messages on your computer.
To set up the Your Phone app:
- Go to the Microsoft Store and download the Your Phone app.
- Once the app is installed, open it and sign in with your Microsoft account.
- Connect your smartphone to your computer using a USB cable. The Your Phone app will automatically detect your phone, and you will be able to view and edit your photos and messages.
Edit Quick Settings
The Quick Settings menu is a handy way to change the settings on your smartphone quickly. To edit the Quick Settings menu, go to the Settings menu and select Customize Controls.

The control will be added to the Quick Settings menu, and you can access it by swiping down from the top of the screen.
