Use Spot­light Search

Spot­light is a fea­ture that lets you search con­tent and sug­gests ser­vices you might be in­ter­ested in. To ac­cess Spot­light, swipe right from the Home screen. Fre­quent con­tacts and apps are lo­cated un­der Siri Sug­ges­tions. Un­der Nearby, you'll see lo­ca­tion sug­ges­tions (which vary ac­cord­ing to the time of day), and un­der News you'll find the day's top sto­ries. The pri­mary Spot­light fea­ture, how­ever, is Search, which is lo­cated at the top of the screen and dis­plays re­sults by app, video, movies, and Bing search. To cus­tom­ize what ap­pears in Spot­light, go to Set­tings > Gen­eral > Spot­light Search. Ac­ti­vate Reach­a­bil­ity to Use Your iPhone One Handed

If you're hav­ing trou­ble ac­cess­ing items at the top of the screen on your iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, give your over­stretched thumb a break and start us­ing Ap­ple's Reach­a­bil­ity fea­ture to bring the top of the screen within reach. Tap­ping twice (not click­ing) on the Home but­ton will cause the iPhone's screen to shift about a third of the way down—enough to put items on the top of the screen within reach of your thumb. You will not be able to ac­cess items on the lower part of the screen while us­ing Reach­a­bil­ity. To turn off the fea­ture, dou­ble tap or click the Home but­ton once.

To add wid­gets to the No­ti­fi­ca­tion Cen­ter, you must have apps on your de­vice that have an as­so­ci­ated wid­get. To turn on wid­gets, swipe down from the top of the screen to re­veal No­ti­fi­ca­tion Cen­ter. In the To­day view, scroll to the bot­tom and tap Edit. Here, you'll see a list of the wid­gets that are avail­able to you. To add a wid­get, sim­ply tap the green + icon to the left of the app's name in the lower list. To re­move a wid­get, tap the red - icon in the list up top. To change the or­der in which the wid­gets ap­pear, tap and hold the par­al­lel lines icon to the right and drag them to your de­sired lo­ca­tion. Send and Re­ceive Air­Drop Files

With Air­Drop, you can wire­lessly send and re­ceive photos, videos, web­sites, lo­ca­tions, and more with nearby Ap­ple de­vices. For Air­Drop to work, you must turn on both Wi-Fi and Blue­tooth and sign in to your iCloud ac­count. To re­ceive a file us­ing Air­Drop, swipe up from the bot­tom of the screen and se­lect Air­Drop. You can then choose to re­ceive AirDrops from Ev­ery­one or Con­tacts Only, or turn the fea­ture off com­pletely. If you're send­ing a file, you'll need to make sure your re­cip­i­ent's iPhone is un­locked and Air­Drop is en­abled. When some­one sends you an Air­Drop file, you'll be able to ac­cept or de­cline it.
