As an Apple device owner, you've likely been pounding on the tempered glass of your various iPhone models for well over a decade now. You might easily spend up to several hours a day interacting with the device while you're on the go, perhaps even using it occasionally to interact with your IBM i system.

Hence, small time-saving tips you can apply in your daily interaction with your smartphone could quickly add up to quite a few hours over the course of the year. Likewise, any tricks you can use to more quickly and/or conveniently make the device do what you need it to do could help alleviate some of the minor frustrations we encounter while navigating today's information-heavy world. Apple has introduced so many new features over the course of 16 major OS releases that it's likely there are a number of iPhone "hidden gems" you have yet to discover.

For instance:
* Have you ever been frustrated trying to position your cursor in just the right position to insert characters or fix a typo in a text message or email?
* Have you experienced eye fatigue or even sleep deprivation as a result of interacting with your bright iPhone screen in a dark room, even on its darkest setting?
* Are you finding it difficult to read the small text in apps that don't support pinching as a way to zoom into the interface?
* Do you have trouble using one hand to reach all areas of the screen because your finger or thumb can only reach so far while holding the phone?

In this short 20 minute session, we'll demonstrate 20 highly useful (and relatively unknown) iPhone tips and techniques you can put to immediate use to improve your interaction with that trusty digital companion in your pocket. Sorry Android users, this is an Apple iPhone-specific session — though you're welcome to come see what you're missing!
