What do those Status Icons and Symbols mean on your iPhone?

Ever wondered what all those status icons and symbols mean that sit in the iPhone status bar, along the top of the screen? You’re certainly not alone, and while some of those little symbols make perfect sense, others can be a bit of a mystery even to longtime iPhone users. Sure, the obvious ones like cell bars signal (or the true numerical signal if you enabled it) and the 4G, LTE, battery, and Wi-Fi indicators are pretty self explanatory, but what about that little circle you see sometimes? Or what about the moon icon, or the two interlinking circles? Or the little arrow that points up and to the right? Don’t let those status bar icons be a mystery any longer.

Easy Proof Reading on your iPhone and iPad

Easy Proof Reading:
If you're like me, and lack attention to detail, you will find that sometimes you may mistype something in an email or text message. Here is a great way to have your iPhone or iPad quickly proof read your text to you.

To enable text to speech on your iPhone or iPad, you must turn on the feature in the settings by going to Settings > General > Accessibility.

Select the "Speak Selection" option and adjust the other settings, such as speaking rate and languages, according to your preferences.

When you are ready to check your written words, simply select a block of text like you are going to copy and paste it. Just tap and hold the text until a pop-up action menu appears and select "Speak" to listen to your written words.

Also use this to have your phone read you long articles online. Hope this helps

How I organize my iPhone

Many have asked me how I organize my iPhone. With so many apps now, it's hard to figure out where to put them. The best method for me has been to create a folder for each category, and then pull out to the left the top 3 apps that I use the most. I leave the categoryfolder at the end of each row. When a new app becomes more used than others I just swap them in and out of the folders. Hope this Helps.
