Millions of people own an iPhone, but most people do not even know about half the features that it can do.

1. Tell Siri Who Your Contacts Are

You can teach Siri who your family members are to make it easier to call them simply by saying “Call dad,” “call mom,” etc. After you load Siri, you can say “John Doe” is my father. Another way to associate the vocal commands with Siri is by entering it into your contact. You can set this up for your brother, sister, assistant, and manager.

    Some of these were pretty basic but very helpful to someone who is new to the iPhone. But I will say the one iPhone camera tip that I had NO idea you could do was taking a picture with your headphones volume button. Thanks for the tips!
