You can also customize the Home screen using iTunes, when iPhone is connected to your computer. In iTunes, select iPhone, then click Apps.

Wallpaper settings let you set an image or photo as wallpaper for the Lock screen or Home screen. You can choose from dynamic and still images.

Use an Apple Wireless Keyboard
You can use an Apple Wireless Keyboard (available separately) to enter text on iPhone. The keyboard connects via Bluetooth, so you must first pair it with iPhone.

until the Voice Control screen appears and you hear a beep, or press and hold the center button
on your headset.
For best results:

Change the language for Voice Control. By default, Voice Control expects you to speak voice commands in the language that’s set for iPhone (in Settings > General > International >Language).
To use Voice Control in another language or dialect, go to Settings > General >International > Voice Control.
Voice Control for the Music app is always on, but you can keep Voice Control from dialing
when iPhone is locked. Go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode (iPhone models with Touch ID) or
Settings > Passcode (other models), then turn off Voice Dial.
