Who doesn’t love learning new tricks, especially if they’ll help you get more out of your iPhone? N4GM has put together a nice list of tips and tricks for iOS 8 newbies and while some of them have been covered to death — does anyone not know about time lapse videos at this point? — others are definitely more under the radar.

Among other things, the list tells you how to use rich text formatting in your notes to make them more expressive, how to take timed selfies to ensure that you’re completely ready to get your picture snapped, how to add all your emergency healthy information to your device, and how to add photos, GIFs and videos to your notes.

Of all the tips listed, the medical information one might be the most valuable. Apple lets you add in your preexisting medical conditions, your medicinal allergies and your blood type, which all might help you get critical medical care if you’re in an emergency situation. You can add your health information by using Apple’s new Health app and creating a Medical ID on your device that can actually be accessed from your emergency dialer so you medical officials can view it without unlocking your phone.

N4GM’s full list is worth checking out and can be found at the source link below.
