5 Ways to Live a More Orderly Life with Your iPhone

Your iPhone is the only thing you always have with you. It contains almost every piece of digital media you could ever want, including your music, movies, games, notes, and other apps that help you through your life. Your phone is your planner that helps you stay organized, but in reality that’s not the case for many people.

Some people are simply unorganized; that’s how they are. While your phone partially functions as an organizer, planner, and reminder, many phones simply serve as a distraction rather than helping you get organized. But with a little discipline and simplification, your iPhone will be the pocket organizer you’ve always wanted.

Check Your App Collection Regularly

Before you can be organized, you need to clear all the clutter. One of the easiest ways to clean up the clutter on your phone is to delete apps you hardly ever use. I currently have 77 apps installed, which may sound like a lot, but compared to most people I know, that’s hardly anything.

However, most of the apps that people install are rarely used. I’m guilty of having a few apps I hardly touch, including the Pizza Hut ordering app and the Kindle app (I don’t like reading digital books). “Why did you install these apps if you never use them?” I would like you to ask yourself the same question.

If there’s an app currently on your iPhone that you haven’t used in the last six months, get rid of it. It not only cleans up the clutter but also saves storage space that many of us worry about with our devices.

Better still, take advantage of folders and share your apps in Social, Travel, Shopping, Entertainment, etc. Organize in different folder categories such as This allows you to reduce the number of pages you have to scroll to find it. the app you are looking for.

Use a Single Note-Taking App

Back then, I had digital notes spread all over the place. I took notes in the iOS Notes app, kept larger documents in Google Drive, and uploaded reference screenshots or photos to Dropbox. It was a mess and I often had to go through each service to find something I needed.

However, I now use a single note-taking app that takes care of everything I need to take notes or remember later. Which app/service you use is up to you, but I prefer Evernote because it’s pretty comprehensive. You can take quick notes or write longer documents and even save screenshots or photos directly to the app. Feedly also has seamless Evernote integration so I can save articles I want to read later in Evernote.

Of course, note-taking styles are different for everyone, and some people don’t mind having their notes scattered across different services for different purposes because it works for them, but many people don’t and it’s a central location where they can find everything they’ve saved.

Use Siri to Your Advantage

iOS comes with lots of great utilities to make your life easier and less stressful, including setting reminders, creating an alarm clock for the morning, and setting a timer for cooking and even naps. But that’s a category that I feel is undervalued by Siri. Siri is very good at creating reminders and setting alarm clocks for you. Just say something like “Remind me to pick up my son at 7 PM” and Siri will surely notify you.

We’re assuming you can play around with the app itself and type whatever you want to set up, but who has time for that? Call Siri now and she’ll take care of it.

Loyalty Cards, Coupons etc. Use Passbook to store it.

I wasn’t very interested in Passbook at first, but I was intrigued when I found out that I could store all my loyalty cards and gift cards in one app. The passbook can store all kinds of things, including tickets to sporting events, boarding passes for flights, gift cards, loyalty cards and coupons.

On my last flight, it was really nice not to have to carry paper boarding passes with me and make sure I didn’t lose them. Instead, I pulled out my phone and let the receptionist scan the barcode on my phone to let me board the plane. Plus, it’s much easier to have all my loyalty cards on my phone instead of rummaging through my wallet to find the right card.

ID Cards, Bank Cards etc. Use Digital Wallet to keep it.

When I say “digital wallet” in this example, I am not talking about Google Wallet or other mobile payment platforms. In particular, it can be used for ID cards, insurance cards, bank cards, etc. I’m talking about an app like LifeLock Wallet (formerly Lemon Wallet) that can

Of course, it’s not a substitute for the truth, because you need your physical ID card to prove your age at bars, but if you’re shopping online and don’t have your physical wallet with you, you can. Just take out your phone and get your bank or credit card information from within the app.
