iPhone Tip: How to Quickly Scroll to the Top of Any Screen

I love learning simple tips and tricks for my iPhone — even if they're things I feel I should have known! File this tip under "Things I wish I knew months ago."

Whether you're reading a ton of emails, in the middle of a very long text conversation or just deeply involved browsing apps, sometimes you find yourself at the bottom of a page having to scroll up, up, up to the top. It's annoying and time consuming. Turns out, Apple anticipated how frustrating this would be, and built in a simple feature to quickly reach the top of any application, message log, or browser window — just tap your iPhone's status bar (either on the clock, signal strength, or battery icon).

There's no special app needed — it works on any iPhone. I'm a little embarrassed I didn't know about it until now, but if you're anything like me, this quick hint will free up valuable minutes of your day.
