There's little doubt that the king and queen of the post-PC era are the iPad and the iPhone, and while these devices both started out life as content consumption devices, they've grown over several hardware and software iterations into formidable content creation devices.
But as with any device, there are tips and tricks and shortcuts that can help you get more from your iDevice investment. Here I'm going to present you with six tips and tricks that will help you be more productive when using your iPad and iPhone, whether you use it for work or play.
Do Not Disturb
Want some peace from calls and texts? Use the Do Not Disturb mode present in Settings > Do Not Disturb. This can either be set on demand or to come on based on a schedule.
Want to still be able to receive some calls while in Do Not Disturb mode? Use the Allow Calls From setting to control which of your contacts can get in touch.
What about those urgent calls from people not in your contacts? You can use the Repeated Call feature to allow a call through if it is the second one made within three minutes.
Prior to iOS 7.1 the noise cancellation feature was only available to iPhone 5S owners. Now Apple has made that feature accessible to all.
Go to Settings > General > Accessibility and switch on Phone Noise Cancelation.
