Tips and Tricks For Your Device [Voice Control]

PART of the fun of a high-end, tech device is learning all that it can do! Many of us love to explore and discover cool functions on our own, while others may prefer to read a manual.

Tips and Tricks For Your Device may teach you something new, or remind you of a neat function you've forgotten about!


You want to call a friend without having to unlock your phone and dig up the contacts list to dial. Maybe you want to know the time, or perhaps fire up your iPod with some good music, all without taking your eyes off the road or your task. How can you accomplish this?

Use Voice Control! This is one of my favorite features on the phone which is somewhat well hidden. Whether or not your screen is locked, press and hold the Home button for a few seconds till you hear a two-tone chime. At that point, a blue screen will appear with words moving across it such as Dial, iPod, Facetime, Call, Shuffle, Play Music, Previous Song etc. You don't even have to look at your screen. Simply state your command. For example, "What time is it?", "Call Aunt Sue", "Play Nickelback," and so forth. All voice activated...Look Ma, Hands-Free!
