QuickType keyboard shortcuts
You can share your current location with the help of Siri using the QuickType keyboard. If you are using the Messages app on your iPhone to chat with someone and if they want to know your location (current). Siri will provide you with a ‘Current Location’ button on the suggestion section. Sometimes, you would need to type ‘I am at’ and Siri will be triggered by that.

And, from the next time, all the notifications from that particular app will be delivered without any alerts. It will be completely silent, you won’t even receive any banner on your lock screen as well.

Multi-keyword search in Photos
The ‘Photos’ app is also another powerful app on your iPhone. It can recognize different scenes, objects, and even people. Thanks to technology!
