After several months of owning an iPhone, I am still learning new things about it every day, things I never realised I could do with it. For example, did you know you can make phone calls with it? That is utterly amazing. Here I was thinking that an iPhone was only good for checking email and updating Instagram, and suddenly it rings and someone is talking to me at the other end! Absolutely amazing technology. Whatever will they think of next?
Here at MakeUseOf, we have covered iPhone hacks and tricks extensively. To quote a couple, Tim covered some of the iOS 5 features back in November, and Bakari covered another 10 iOS 5 tips in March. But another cool feature which I have just discovered, is that you can activate Siri just by raising the phone to your ear (the phone has to be switched on first though). This is much more convenient than doing the long pressing of the Home button. It also allows you to make a Siri enquiry look like an ordinary phone call, so you can avoid all those weird stares from people wondering why you are talking to yourself.
Do you know of any other unknown fun facts about the iPhone / iOS 5 that people should know about? Let us know in the comments.
