13 Things You Didn’t Know Your iPhone 6 Could Do

(2) Review which apps are draining your battery

You can easily determine which apps are consuming most of your battery power on the Settings screen.

(3) View every image someone has texted to you

Rather than scrolling back through months worth of messages, the Details screen will show you all the photos a person has ever sent to you.

(4) Set audio and video messages to expire

If you want to send someone sensitive content — including audio or video — you can set that content to “expire” after a fixed amount of time.

(5) Share your location by text

Rather than try to explain to your friend where you are, just use the Details panel to instantly send your location.

Whether you want to rename a group conversation or leave it altogether, iPhone 6 can do that.

(7) Minimize an email you are composing

You can return to your inbox to refer to other emails by simply minimizing the email you’re currently composing.

(8) Enable Siri without using your hands

By changing one simple setting, you can activate Siri by saying “Hey Siri” out loud. This can be a very helpful feature while driving.

(9) Have Siri read anything you want

Don’t want to read through an entire article? Ask Siri to read it to you instead.

(10) Control your iPhone 6 with your head

In your Accessibility settings, you can make left or right head movements trigger particular actions on your iPhone 6.

(11) Reduce colors to save battery power

You can set your iPhone 6 to “grayscale” mode to converse battery power.

In case of emergency, you can set up your iPhone to link to emergency medical and contact information right from the lock screen!
