Is your iPhone frozen? Hold down the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time. Wait until it gives you the option to shut it down. Swipe the screen to shut your phone down.

If you want to take a picture quickly, double tap on your Home button. Even if the phone is locked this will bring up a little camera icon that will allow you to open the camera. You can then use the Volume Up button on your phone or headphones to snap the picture!

When you are done, hit the stop button and it automatically types what you say. You can also use this feature to update your status on social networking sites.
While in the Safari browser, you can simply make a phone call with one tap. You might run across a number you want to call if you’re searching for, say, a restaurant online. When you find the number, no need to go to your phone component to make the call. Just tap on their number and you’ll be connected to your desired business immediately.
You can edit the pictures you take on your iPhone. Go to the picture you want to edit. Once you find the picture, click the Edit button in the top right corner. This will allow you to fix red-eye, crop, rotate, or auto-enhance. After you make your fix, click Save in the top right corner.
