Set up a few basic features before you start using your new iPhone.
Add a personal touch
Your iPhone can reflect your personal style and preferences. Showcase your favorite photos on the Lock Screen, add widgets to the Home Screen, adjust text size, ringtones, and more.
Take your best shot
Use your iPhone to capture the moment, wherever you are. Learn how to take photos and videos on the fly, and use other camera features on your iPhone.
iPhone makes it easy to reach the people important to you. Add them to your contacts so you have their information everywhere you need it—then catch up with text messages, phone calls, or FaceTime.
All in the family
You and your family members can use Family Sharing to share app purchases, your location, and even health data. You can also set up parental controls to manage how children spend time on their devices.
Simplify your day
Learn how to use the apps on your iPhone to direct you to the places you go most often, pay for your morning coffee, remind you of important tasks, and even lock your front door automatically when you leave home.
