Tip #3
You can now mark up documents sent to you as attachments. After you open the attachment, press your finger on the screen and you’ll see a trunk like icon. When you tap the icon the document will appear again with a toolbar.

Press Home button to activate Siri and ask away.

Tip #6
You don’t need an app to convert currency anymore. Just swipe to the right to search on your phone. You can search by currency code to currency code (ex. eur to usd) to find out the rate of exchange, or specify an amount like below example.
1. Swipe to the right.
2. Enter the currency information in the search bar.
