Spotlight Search, with iOS 9, is able to search within the apps you use and link directly into specific sections of that app. For instance, you could search for a recipe from Spotlight Search and receive results from multiple cooking apps on your phone. However, each new app downloaded is automatically added to Spotlight Search. For the applications you don’t need Spotlight to search through, turn them off in Settings.

Apple's free Find My Friends app allows you to track the location of friends and family members who have given you permission. The feature probably works best for keeping track of teenagers running around town, and Siri is happy to help you locate them.

Voicemail storage is limited and, usually, most people discard the old ones. However, now and again there’s an awesome or hilarious message that you want to keep or share with friends and family. Now, in iOS 9, you can do that.

Finally, in iOS 9, there is an option to delete all of your mail via the Mail app. This only works with individual mailboxes, such as Yahoo, not the All Inboxes mailbox. If you're using Gmail, you'll need to select Delete All instead of Archive All in Gmail Settings. If you're worried about losing emails you want to keep, there's a setting you can enable to prevent accidentally deleting emails.

When Apple rolled out iOS 9, it introduced the possibility of accessing Apple Pay from the iPhone Lock Screen. In iOS 11, you can still use Apple Pay from your Lock screen, but things work a little differently with the iPhone X. When this feature is enabled, it will allow you to quickly access Apple Pay and the passes and loyalty cards found in the Wallet app so you can get ready to make a payment or bring up your boarding pass while you wait in line. Note that Apple Pay only works with the iPhone 6 or later. Let's get started learning how to enable Apple Pay from your iPhone Lock Screen!

Notes receives my award for most improved app of the iOS 9 update. One of the big upgrades is the Sketch feature. Now, Notes combines text, sketch, picture, and sharing to give you many note-taking options. With three different "marker" tips, a ruler, eraser, and color easel, it's a pretty basic sketch application, but it's effective and easily combined with text or images.

Using your iPhone as a remote for Apple TV is super easy to set up. Apple has improved upon the Remote app for Apple TV just as it’s improved upon the Apple TV itself. You can set up the remote app for Apple TV in a few quick steps. Why do this? The major benefit of using the Apple TV Remote app is that the remote device need not be in line of sight for the Apple TV to respond. With the app you can change media from any room as long as both the device and Apple TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi. The Remote app also allows you to input text for searches from your iPhone's keyboard. Here’s how to set up the Remote app for Apple TV on iPhone.

What's the difference between text messaging and iMessages? Text messaging requires that you have a cellular plan while iMessages allow you to send messages using your cellular data or Wi-Fi. This is especially handy if you're travelling internationally with only a Wi-Fi connection, or if you want to send messages from an Apple device without cellular connectivity. If the message you send is blue, it's an iMessage; if green, it's a text message. Here's how to set iMessages up if you  haven't already.

Getting up in the morning can sometimes be a challenge. And waking up to the blaring beep or buzz of an alarm can make it even worse. If you use your iPhone as a wake up device in the mornings you can choose to wake up to your favorite song instead. Here’s how:

In most western countries, the Calendar app on the iPhone or iPad has Sunday set as the first day of the week. But considering the work week tends to divide quite distinctly into weekdays and the weekend, with most of our appointments and business meetings taking place Monday through Friday, you may prefer to set Monday as the first day of the week. Or if you have an unusual schedule, you could set any day of the week you prefer to be the first day of your personalized week. Here's how to change what day your week starts in the Calendar app on iPhone.
