1. custom vibrations
How great would it be to know who’s calling, just by the way the iPhone is buzzing in your pocket? You can.
In the Contacts app, select your person of choice and tap Edit. You’ll see a Vibration option. Press it and you’ll see many options, including a Create New Vibration tool to customize your own.
This way, you can have a different ring for your partner, kids, or boss – without even needing to glance at your phone. It’s great for multitaskers and for those in meetings all day (with your phone on silent).
Similarly, you can create custom ringtones for different people, as well as have the iPhone’s light flash a unique pattern to know who’s calling.
2. Fix Siri’s pronunciation

Apple’s voice-controlled personal assistant may be great at giving you information such as the weather, directions, and sports scores, but sometimes it just doesn’t say things right. This is especially true for some names and places – perhaps with origins in other languages — that may be difficult for Siri to pronounce.
And you can’t blame Siri, if it’s spelled one way but pronounced another. (For example, I work with a PR person named Alissa, but it’s pronounced “Aleesa.”)
If Siri says something wrong, just tell it. After Siri mispronounces something, say, “That’s not how you pronounce [XXX].” Siri will ask for the correct pronunciation, and let you check it got it right.
