Luckily there are two tricks you can use to more efficiently access iOS Settings, saving time and effort.
There's no shortage of PDF apps on the App Store. PDF converters, readers, editors, the list goes on and on.

While the process only takes a moment, it is necessary to get the most out of Siri on iOS 10.
