8 Handy Tips for iOS 5

iOS 5 is now out and here are eight handy tips for using your iPhone 4 and iOS 5:

This is possibly one of the best new features on iOS for iPhone 4. Using the new Reminders app you can set reminders by time OR location. So if you need to do something when you get home from work you can set a reminder for that. You will then be reminded once you arrive at your home address. You need to have Location Services enabled in order for location reminders to work.

Sync iTunes via Wi-Fi
You can now sync your iTunes library wirelessly over Wi-Fi. To do this go to Settings, General, iTunes Wi-Fi Sync. By doing this once you will automatically get your iPhone to sync with iTunes wirelessly every time your iPhone is plugged into a plug socket.

Access Camera from Lock Screen
You can now access your camera quickly to capture those unmissable moments. When your iPhone is locked, double tap the home button and you will get the option to go to your camera. It loads quite fast and allows you to quickly use your camera!

Quick Camera Capture
With the camera being one of the main features of the iPhone 4s, many camera related features have been brought to the iPhone 4. When taking photos you can now use the ‘+’ button, used for increasing volume, to snap pictures. You can now also use the ‘+’ button on your iPhone headphones!

LED flash for Alerts
By going to Settings, General, Accessibility you can turn on the the LED flash for Alerts option. This means the LED flash will light up when an alert occurs.

Assign Vibrations to Contacts
Also in the Settings, General, Accessibility area you can assign custom vibrations to contacts. So if your best mate rings you can get your iPhone to vibrate like crazy so you don’t miss them!

Keyboard Shortcuts
You are now able to create keyboard shortcuts for when your are texting or emailing. To do this go to Settings, General, Keyboard. Here you can assign shortcuts, for example i have set ‘@me’ to fill out my email address in full.

This is one of the most interesting, useful features in the new iOS, in my opinion. The new Notification Centre can be viewed by swiping down from the top. Here you can see emails, texts, Facebook updates and any other apps that like to notify you!

These are just some handy tips for the new iOS 5 for iPhone 4. If you have any other tips, comment using the forms below!
