If the iPhone is wet, dry it with rice. Nearly everyone has dropped a phone in a puddle, sink or even a toilet. Dry your iPhone with a towel as well as possible, then seal it in a bag that has dry rice in it. After a number of hours, or overnight, your phone should be dry.
Always update your device whenever you can. This ensures that you get the latest software and updates available for your phone. This makes sure that any photos or important information are stored on your system in case something goes wrong with your phone.
After you learn how to take pictures using your volume buttons, try using the headphone cord to snap a shot. Hold your hands steady and once you have the shot lined up, click the button on your cord.

You don’t need to add “.com” when typing web addresses into your iPhone. You only need to use the main address and your browser will pull up the correct site. This may seem like a tiny time-saver, but it will save a lot of minutes during your phone’s lifetime.
If you try the Safari browser instead of Internet Explorer, you will not have to type the .com to go to a website. As an example, when visiting a site like Google.com, you can simply type in Google in the URL area and instantaneously you will be brought to the site.
If your iPhone gets wet when you drop it, don’t panic–this happens to a lot of people. However, it’s important not to turn it back on right away. Do what you can to dry off the outside and then let the moisture inside have overnight to dry out. If you turn on a wet phone, it can cause it to be permanently damaged.
It is usually easy to navigate a web page on your iPhone, but it can still take a while to go back to the top on longer pages. Well, now that is no longer necessary. Clicking the top of your screen where the status bar is, will bring you right back to the beginning of the page. This feature can really be a life saver when scrolling through extra long pages.
