5 Mind-Blowing iPhone Features Every Teen MUST Master!

Join me, your friendly neighborhood tech nerd, as I unveil the latest Apple features that have revolutionized my daily routine!

1. Journal

Released in December 2023, the Journal app is by far one of the best additions to your Apple phone. With Journal, teenagers can quickly document all their important life activities and keep memories of what is happening. You can even add pictures, locations, and tag friends allowing you to easily document everything. Who knows? Maybe later on these things will help you become inspired, or even cheer you up on bad days.

Another wonderful thing about the Journal app is that it automatically gives you reflections that you can use. The reflections are always changing and they provide writing topics that really make you have to think. In addition, there is security and a schedule allowing you to feel more comfortable to say things you might not say to your friends. Schedules allow you to keep writing regardless of what happens and reminds you to take some time to reflect. If you're not already writing a journal now might be the time. Studies have shown that journaling has a positive effect to reducing stress.

Stickers are a great way to connect and personalize your conversations. You can quickly make stickers from your photos by clicking and holding on a photo and clicking the sticker button. It will allow you to place an outline and then boom, you have a sticker. These can be funny faces and stuff to send to your friends and be able to tell them how you feel. This is like emojis but with your face on them.

The live voicemail feature is another great apple feature to be aware of, because if you're in a meeting or something, you can quickly see a glimpse of the conversation in a voicemail. This feature allows you to not have to text back and forth but immediately understand which calls are important and which calls can be dealt with at a later time. This not only makes you more efficient it also helps you stay focused on what's important.

To turn this amazing feature on, go to Settings --> Phone --> Live Voicemail and toggle it to the on position. If your phone is iOS 17 or higher then it will be on by default whenever someone calls.
