To get the most out of your iPhone, use it as a storage device. You can use your iPhone to store all sorts of files with the help of readily available software.

Use the headphone cord to help you take pictures. It can be difficult to take a picture that is in focus if you are pushing a button that is on the actual phone. Instead, push the cord’s button; the slight movement will not affect your iPhone at all, allowing you to take a crisp, clear photograph.
If you accidently get your iPhone wet, there is hope! First, do not push the power button; this may cause additional damage.

Save a wet iPhone with white rice! If you are unfortunate enough to drop your beloved iPhone in the toilet or a puddle, all is not lost. Do not turn the phone on. Dry it with a towel.
