Despite being one of the most powerful smartphones in the world, the iPhone is often underutilized by its users. With the introduction of AI, our iPhones have become even more capable devices. AI unlocks a whole new world of possibilities for iPhone users who are willing to explore its potential. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the features of AI that can help you truly unlock the power of your iPhone.
How to unlock the power of your iPhone with AI
1- Exploring Apple’s AI Tools
Apple has realized that AI is the future, and they have been working on integrating AI tools into iOS and iPhone in a myriad of ways. One such integration is with the camera app. By using an AI technology called Deep Fusion, the camera takes multiple images and selects the best pixels from each to create the optimal final image. Similarly, AI is integrated into the Apple Music app, which can suggest playlists and albums based on your personal preferences.
2- Getting to Know Siri
Siri is the AI assistant integrated into iPhone devices running iOS 5 or later. She’s capable of understanding natural language and can help you send texts, make calls, dictate notes, and search the internet. However, many users don’t use Siri at all or use her only for basic needs. In order to unlock the power of Siri, you’ll want to explore the capabilities that are beyond the surface. For instance, Siri can control your smart home devices, schedule meetings, place reservations, and even tell jokes. Siri is always learning and getting better, so be sure to interact with her often.
3- Customizing Your Commands
AI allows you to configure settings to better suit your specific needs. Siri’s personal assistant settings are one example of this customization. With personal assistant settings, you can configure your app preferences, determine how Siri responds to some commands and customize your default messaging and FaceTime apps. You can also set up and remove custom commands from Siri’s database of pre-made commands. The possibilities are endless, and the more you interact with Siri, the more personalized she becomes.
4- Identifying Songs with Shazam
With AI, the popular music recognition app Shazam is now integrated into the Control Center of iPhones running iOS 14 or later. All you need is to swipe up the Control Center from the bottom of the screen and tap the Shazam icon to identify song playing around you. The app can also provide song lyrics, recommendations and links to music streaming services such as Apple Music or Spotify.
5- Improving Your iPhone’s Battery Life
With AI’s aim to learn from its users, iOS 13 lets your iPhone learn your daily routine to predict when to conserve battery life. This process is called Optimized Battery Charging. For instance, if you tend to charge your phone before bed and unplug it when you wake up, then iPhone will only charge to 80% and wait to charge the remaining 20% until closer to the time you wake up. This extended cycle can help preserve the battery life of your device.
In conclusion, AI offers a host of features and integrations that can help you better utilize your iPhone. Siri, Apple’s AI tools, Shazam, customizable commands, and battery optimization are just a few examples of how AI can help you unlock the full potential of your iPhone. By exploring these features and interacting with them, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of what your iPhone is capable of and empower yourself with the best technology that Apple has to offer.
