Brett’s iTip: The iPhone actually has two different volume controls that can be confusing, especially when you don’t want to miss your alarm! There’s the media volume which controls sound from apps, games, videos, music, and phone calls. There’s the ringer & alert volume which controls sounds for your ringer, notifications, system alerts, and alarms. By default, the media volume is controlled by the side buttons. And by default, the ringer & alert volume is controlled by going to Settings - Sounds & Haptics and changing the slider under “Ringer and Alert Volume.” But this gets confusing because under that slider there is a “Change with Buttons” toggle. If that’s turned on (and probably is) then the side buttons will change both volumes.

Jeff’s iTip: Here’s a trick for faster scrolling on the iPhone or iPad. Start to scroll a list like normal and you will see the scroll bar appear on the right. Tap and hold the scroll bar until you feel the haptic feedback on the iPhone. On the iPad, you just have to hope that you have held it long enough. Move that finger pressing the scroll bar up and down to scroll much more quickly
