2. Notify me when there’s a reply - Tap the flag button in the Mail app, and then on "Notify Me" to be notified of replies to your mail.

3. Hey, Siri - You can enable Voice Activation for Siri, and say "Hey, Siri" when the device is plugged into a power source.

4. Send a spoken message - Touch and hold the microphone button to record a message, swipe up to send it, or swipe left to delete it.

5. Quickly manage your mail - Swipe actions for email, swipe right to mark it read or flag it. And swipe left for other options, and swipe farther to delete the mail. You can change the actions by navigating to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Swipe Options.

6. Be in the shot - Use the Camera app's shutter timer to including yourself in photos.
