Shortcuts, the best new thing to come out of iOS 12 is a game changer for iPhone users all all stages and ages. I now have 271 shortcuts. That number will more than certainly grow significantly with every passing week. Shortcuts hasn’t necessarily made Siri smarter, but it has made Siri more powerful. So what can you do with Shortcuts? Well before I leave, let me get you started with a few of my favorites.
