Whether you want to carry videos, music, photos, or documents, you can easily put them on your phone. Then you have them available right on your phone, or you can connect and access them later on your computer.
When typing on your iPhone, tip it horizontally. The keyboard should be displayed horizontally and become bigger. When browsing the internet, use the Safari app: this is the only one that will rotate when you move your phone. This should help you avoid typos and type much faster than before.
