Make Siri smarter

Now, there is so much that your Siri can do for you but many of us barely ever use the feature, especially because it talks funny and doesn t get your accent right. (Desi accent problems). However, did you know you could simply correct Siri s pronunciations, when she doesn t get it right.

Contact

All you need to do is, when she mispronounces a word or name, just say that s not how you pronounce it . Siri will then ask you to pronounce it a couple of times, it will register a few options and let you select the best pronunciation. After that, Siri wouldn t mispronounce ever again.

Also, you can make Siri learn your family tree. On one weekend, you should sit down with Siri and explain her your relationships with particular people on your contact. Simply tell Siri to call, for instance, your brother, when Siri asks who your brother is, tell the digital PA the name by which you have your brother s contact saved and it will permanently register that contact under the relationship.

Custom vibration

This is a really cool feature if you keep your phone mostly only vibrate but want to be able to tell when someone important is calling. To do this, go to the contact of the person you want to create a custom vibration for, hit edit, and down below you ll see a Vibration option. When you select that, it will drop down a selection of many vibrations, but scroll to the bottom and choose Create New Vibration. And then just create your buzz by tapping on the screen the beat of your choice. We already have done a detailed tutorial on how to customize vibration on your iPhone, check it out here.

Shake to undo

This is not a new feature, but if you don t know about it, you are really missing out on something. The Shake to Undo feature in the iPhone is extremely convenient, it lets you undo a text by simply shaking the phone. Generally, the feature is enabled on iPhones by default, however, in case it isn t you can simply go to the smartphone Settings, tap on Accessibility, close to the top you ll notice the Shake to Undo option, enable that.

Undo-typing

Shortcut to emoticons

Have you seen those shrug emoticons, I always used to wonder how people manage to make that. However, your iPhone has a shortcut to let you automatically type it when you want. This is really interesting, to enable the shrug emoticon or the likes, simply go to Settings and navigate to the Keyboard option in General and look for Text Replacement option. Copy and paste the shruggie emoticon from the web to the Phrase field and in the Shortcut give it a name, say Shruggie. After you ve created the replacement, every time you write Shruggie, it automatically turns into the emoticon. Ain t that cool?

Organize notification panel

If the number of notifications on your drag down notification panel irk you, it s probably because you haven t customized it as per your needs. According to your convenience, you can easily choose the notifications you want to reflect on the panel.

There are two ways to do that, either you can sort the alerts by date and time. To do that, go to Notification Center in Settings, select Sort Order under notification view, choose Recent. This will simply show the latest notifications on the top.

Or, you could sort your alerts manually, which would organize your notifications much better. For that, go back to Sort order in the Notification Centre menu, and choose Manual. On the top right corner, tap on Edit, and under the Include section (the apps that are enabled to send you notifications) re-arrange apps in order of priority. When you do that, the notifications will also show in the same order. For example, you place you email app on the top, then even when you have 10 notifications coming in from other apps, you email notification will sit right on top of all the notifications.

Hope this makes your iPhone experience a lot better. Let us know if we missed out on any cool trick in the comments section below.
