Apple’s Shortcuts are probably the most helpful and underrated innovations you have on your iPhone. You can do a lot of things from automating music, security, and even productivity tools, and yet, they’re still not used as often as they should be.

Still, if you aren’t using these helpful tools yet, you’re missing out. It’s a way to make your overall iOS experience even easier. However, you need to know which Shortcuts to get. If you don’t know where to start, continue reading to browse five useful Shortcuts for your iPhone.

When Do I Need To Leave By?

Commuting to work can be a hassle in the morning, especially if you’re not a morning person like me. Whether it’s because of your bad time management or a traffic accident, sometimes running 5 minutes late can become more than 30 minutes in traffic.

That’s why “When Do I Need To Leave By” is a great shortcut to help never be tardy in any scenario again. All you need to do is write the address of where you are and the address where you want to go.

Then, the shortcut will tell you how much time it’ll take you to get there, and it will give you the specific hour when you need to leave. If you’re like me, you’ll want to use this Shortcut. You can get it here.

Remind Me at Work

Just like the previous Shortcut, “Remind Me at Work” is a great tool to use inside and outside of work.

Whether it’s for your work, home, or wherever else you need it, this app is an excellent reminder for to-do lists or anything else you need. Get this Shortcut here.

Where Was This Taken

Now, when you take pictures with your iPhone, you can remember every little detail, even where you took the photo. “Where Was This Taken” shows you where a picture was taken by extracting the GPS from the picture, showing you the details of the picture, like the date it was taken and the location. It can even show you the exact location on a map. You can get “Where Was This Taken” here.
