#5. Navigate YouTube Using Your Keyboard 

This little tip is a time-saver of note.

DO IT: Use the 1 to 9 keys on your keyboard to skip from 10% to 90% of the way through the video. Give it a bash if you're eager to go straight to the chorus of your current favourite song. Plus, hit the L to jump ahead 10 seconds, hit J key to rewind 10 seconds and K key to pause.

#6. Use Headphones to Take a Selfie On Your iPhone

No more stretching two arms forward to take a pic. 

DO IT: Plug in your earphones, open the camera app and click volume + button. Easy peasy!  

Preserve Your Cellphone Battery

#7. Turn Off Haptic Feedback

Turn off any noise or vibration your phone produces when you're pressing buttons. Besides, that noise can be incredibly annoying!

#8. Keep Your Phone cool

We don't mean you should buy a pretty, glitter-doused cover; we mean literally keep your phone cool. Too much heat decreases battery capacity. So take that poolside selfie, then pop your phone into the darkness of your tote.
